For the price you get quite a bit. I am a big fan of MSI boards because they really give you a lot for your money. 4k support, plenty of usb ports, dvi, hdmi, displayport, bluetooth, wireless ac, m.2. If I would have been more patient, I probably would have spent the extra money for the A88XI Version of this, but I wanted to buy all the parts and build in the same day. I Only wish the M.2 port was not in use so that I may put a nice PCIE drive in eventually.
This board worked out great. The layout was just right for the case I used and made cable management much easier. Build in WiFi works great.
The only "con" I have noted is that the Bluetooth works great, but the driver/utility disks must be missing a program that allows you to actually use it. I can pair, but not connect with any Bluetooth device. I can't find a program on the disks or on MSI site that allows me to stream music, file transfer, or connection share across it. Might just be missing something....
edit- After using the computer a few days, it seems that Windows 10 auto updating went out and found a driver that worked better. The Bluetooth connects and works fine at this point. Raised to five stars.
This is very small, and it has lots of ports. The first time I bought it it didn't work. The Bluetooth WiFi adapter has these two wires that pop off very easily. There are wires on the motherboard. There are only 2 RAM slots.
Did not come with speaker or pin adapter for front panel connectors, WiFi works well but i have not tested the Bluetooth
For an ITX with WiFi, this thing was awesome. I was hitting speeds of 150Mbps up and down with the onboard WiFi (granted I'm in a spot with good WiFi, but it's nice to know that the hardware isn't the limiting factor). Bios was nice and easy to use also. Quickly becoming an MSI fanboy.
