I'm fairly impressed with this motherboard. I have been out of building desktops for years now, so I had to do quite a bit of research before settling on this mobo. I spent a lot of time reading reviews, looking for reliability issues. It is a fact of modern manufacturing processes that a certain percentage of product will fail. It stinks, but that's reality. However, steps can be taken to reduce that percentage. After a fairly unscientific study (kept a running total of failures reported in comments for various mobo manufactures, I selected MSI.
This board had everything I was looking for. This box was built to dual function as a multi-user desktop for the basement as well as a whole home file and media server. For this, I like the the number of SATA drives it could support, and the variety of PCI slots offered. The extra USB3.0 header was a bonus. I bought a front mounted usb port / card reader and attached it to this header. At the time of purchase (late 2012), the Z77 chip was the best intel chip out there. Not many boards at this price point offered this chip.
As this box was built to run linux, compatibility was another huge consideration. I'm happy to report that this mobo (and an Ivy Bridge i3 processor) worked right out of the box on Ubuntu 12.10. No drivers to compile, no hoops to jump through.
I also appreciated that MSI included a couple of SATA cables with the mobo. It is a small item, but a nice bonus to the consumer.Read more ›
It survived the first month very well including moving houses. My computer is on for about 3-4 days a time and it has had no problems what so ever. Will be buying again in a couple of months for a second build. Extremely satesfied with my purchase.

Some issues I ran into were:
1. It wouldn't boot up using a fairly recent nvidia 770 video card, I had to use an older 560 series.
2. It wouldn't boot up with a USB memory stick plugged in, had to boot up with it unplugged, then plug it in once it booted
MSI still has everything you need on their website for this motherboard. All I got was the motherboard swapped in anti-static plastic and the faceplate, wrapped in large amounts super fun bubblewrap. I downloaded on another PC and copied to a USB memory stick once I installed Windows 7 on it. No issues so far! Great motherboard.
Hopefully this will last me a while, there's fewer and fewer motherboards that support old PCI sound cards, and I really like my old software and hardware.
Only problem I had was that the network genie was limiting my bandwidth and slowing down my internet speeds. Other than that, five out of five.
