Works great, for a budget build.

They sent me a defective board and now I can't return it(even though it's within the amount of time to).
Andrew S Hoffart
Bios is very easy to use and has a polished look to it.

The MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 MicroATX board is a great choice for most users. Here's a detailed analysis of the board:
THE GOOD:
+ Has onboard buzzer so no need to connect external speaker.
+ Has VGA, DVI & HDMI ports, with any 2 or 3 being able to be used simultaneously (according to the manual, not tested by me).
+ The A75 chipset has the following advantages over the A55:
* SATA ports (6 total) are 6Gb/S instead of 3Gb/S.
* 2 of the 8 USB ports on the rear panel are USB3. Also there are headers for connecting 2 additional USB3 ports and 2 more USB2 ports. (The A55 chipset does not support any USB3 ports).
+ Has 1 PCIe x16 slot, two PCIe x1 slots, and a single PCI slot.
+ Rear panel has a single PS/2 keyboard/mouse port for reusing older input devices. Since this is a single port you can can connect either a PS/2 keyboard or PS/2 mouse but not both.
+ Rear panel has 6 audio jacks (7.1 channel audio). Audio codec is Realtek ALC887
+ LAN is Gigabit, provided by Realtek 8111
+ Has legacy Parallel/Serial port headers so you could connect devices that need these ports.
+ There are 2 DDR3 DIMM sockets on the board, supporting up to to 16GB.

THE BAD:
- The Parallel & Serial port headers are strangely placed at the FRONT side of the motherboard rather than near the rear panel or expansion slots. Most users wouldn't care about these but if you need to use them you would prefer than they had been located differently on the board.
- Note that there are no IDE (PATA) connectors so you will either have to upgrade other IDE devices or use an IDE<>SATA adapter.
- Printed manual does not have a list of BIOS beep codes (in case your system fails to boot normally).

I recently built two gaming PCs, one Intel-based and the other AMD-based, both using motherboards from MSI. This board was used to build my son a gaming PC and was paired with an AMD A10-5800K APU and 16 GB DDR3 RAM. I experienced no hardware problems or failures, and everything worked fine and very reliably. MSI makes high-quality products and this was no exception to that rule. The form factor is small but when paired with the right components, this little board can be part of a powerful gaming rig. It exceeded my expectations and I am happy with my purchase.

Well I installed the MCU amd RAM and connected everything up. The BIOS came up, crashed sometimes on exiting, and I couldn't get past the initial windows logo of a Windows 8 install.
I tried running diagnostics and utilities from the likes of Paragon. I could boot up a DOS recovery and I could run Paragon utilities in safe mode but always quickly crashed when trying anything else. The problem, that I wasted many emotional hours on, turned out to be VERY simple. The crashing was due to any USB device (keyboard or mouse) plugged in, such as the mouse and keyboard that were working just fine to configure the graphical bios!

So, with no mouse and just a PS/2 keyboard attached, suddenly all worked well, and I installed Windows 8 without further issue. Still crashing if a USB mouse or keyboard is attached at boot, but I could later attach the mouse. I installed the MSI drivers (watch out for the AntiVirus that you probably will regret loading if you do the full auto-install everything) and I upgraded the BIOS. That cured the mouse crash at boot issues. My HDMI attached monitor had a small picture that did not use the whole screen, that also went away after the MSI drivers were installed.

Final problem was that neither keyboard or mouse would wake the PC up from sleep. That turned out to be due to two jumpers (read the manual) that keep power applied to the PS/2 and USB connected devices during sleep. After changing away from the default no-power supplied during sleep, all was fine.

Overall this was the worst install experience I've ever had, but it was all due to simply not knowing the simple causes and fixes to the problems. Now it's all been up and running for a week I'm really happy with the system.

Being an IT Networking specialist, and a video-gamer at heart. This motherboard is excellent for an AMD A series APU. (Especially the A10-5800K!) And the motherboard doesn't have any heating issues whatsoever. The only thing I dont really like is the A75 chipset instead of the A85X chipset (best current one as of 2013)

Excellent motherboard for everyday use or gaming. Below are my current system specs:

Motherboard: This motherboard
Memory: 16GB 1866 DDR3 SDRAM By Corsair. (Vengeance Series)
CPU: AMD A10-5800K APU "Trinity"
OS: Arch Linux
SSD: OCZ Agility Series 128GB

MSI includes Winki with this motherboard. I was shocked at how fast this booted and how complete and windows-like the interface appears. You "could" run this motherboard without a hard drive or windows or a full blown Linux install if you liked. The following is from the MSI website.

Winki 3
Winki 3 is a free Linux-based O/S which is based on the Linux core. With an ultra-fast booting speed and a multi-language interface, the built-in Winki 3 provides an easy-to-use internet environment that includes the most popular functions such as internet surfing, web mail, instant messaging, picture browsing, and more. It's the most practical way to be online in the shortest time.

Features
- User friendly & totally free applications
- Power on to run applications in 25 seconds
- Multi-language interface support
