How do you rate MSI?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So i am looking to upgrade my AMD 965 to Sandy Bridge and currently looking at motherboard options. I like to sound of the MSI boards but am a bit put off by a customer service experience i recently had with them.
I bought a faulty MSI 570 GTX and filed a webnote with them in some detail. That was in the middle of December and still it hasnt even been acknowledged and i check its satus every few days. I RMA'd with the retailer and have a new one coming, but still a littled miffed at MSI's lack of service.

Anyone else have and negative / positive experiences with them?
Or can recommend a solid board. I currently use Gigabyte and never had a problem.

Thanks for any help

I haven't ever had to deal directly with MSI, but I do like my motherboard. I did have to remove the chipset heatsinks and reapply thermal paste though. That's something you may want to check on if you decide to go MSI. Not sure if they fixed that issue with all of their boards or not.
