Yeah, but people in some of those countries pay very high prices for hardware anyway. Here in the USA we don't get beat up too bad with high prices. They deserve a break so I'm happy for them.

If that was the case then they could have thrown us a bone down here in Australia as well ....
Our hardware prices are roughly double what you guys pay.

Yeah, sure. :rolleyes: Clients from other countries are not counted as people.

Sue them for geographic discrimination.

I would rather have no deal and the world's cheapest prices on hardware. If in europe in most countries there was a 30% off, it will still be a lot more expensive.

I'm glad the US is excluded, so none of my fellow citizens will even be tempted to waste money on crappy MSI products. MSI is the worst, both MSI boards that I've used ran hot and froze up when a game was run, and wouldn't run RAM at it's advertised speed. I wouldn't use one of their boards if they gave them away, it would probably burn my house down.

As a person who reviewed products for many years until just recently - that's nice honey.
Judging by your experience, i won't touch any brand at all. Becuase i had the most emberassing issues with all 4 major brands.

Ooh, what i didn't have. Lets see. factory new boards with
defective sockets
the ability to burn PCI-E cards within seconds by using too much power
Memory competability issues
BIOS bootup issues
Defective chips
Defective USB ports

Now your guess what issues belong to what brand are as good as the next guy.

So much hatred but the truth is that MSI is actually one of the better brands which I like more than the others.....

Gigabyte and Asus, for example, are million times worse...

Quit the fanboyism...

I will say then Tyan and Supermicro are the best... (Actually none of them had problems for me when living un multisocket opterons during P4 era)

MSI is the second worst... First is Gigabyte lately... Asus is the third worst... All of them have glitches on certain products.

Yes it would be more correct to put them in worst POS scale.

Long past caring(!) about MSI when it comes to motherboards. The company don't even sell mobo's across the ditch in New Zealand, and any enthusiast importing one of their boards forfeits any warranty. Locally Asus, ASRock, and Gigabyte carve up the majority of market share.

Likewise. Luckily, our Customs Service officers seem to come from a pool of people that failed to make the grade as migrant produce pickers and fast food drive-thru operators, so unless you're willing to be price gouged as a reward for supporting local business it isn't too much of a problem.

Especially now with the crappy AUD. Not much point in ordering from Amazon or Newegg anymore :(

This makes no sense at all. Is a €30 motherboard crap because it's not a €600 server behemot?

In fact, the best boards I've used were the cheapest MSI AM3 motherboards. €30 and they just work and they even overclocked decently!

Anyway, some things are not that more expensive in Sweden now. MSI Z97 Gaming 5 is $147.99 on Newegg, on Komplett.se it's $166.86. H81M-P33 $45.99 on Newegg, misco.se $54.23. OTOH, the GTX 970 Gaming $349.99 is on newegg, while on komplett.se it's $449.85...

I could recommend to refresh your price lists... even the MBD-X10DAI-O does not cost over 400$, and it is a flagship behemoth actually. It is server grade, mission critical and yes at least some sort of guarantee for stability, it just has the additional copper layers and proper board routing... not PR rubbish.

All the other crap, my board worked like champ, that was bad, he did that... Fanboyism IMHO. Each of them have their flaws lately none of them are exclusions.
