MSI is really pumping out products. I've only owned 1 MSI product so far and was more than satisfied with it. It was an 8800GTS(G92)OC'ed out of the box which I passed on to a friend who has enjoyed it ever since. In the future I wouldn't think twice about buying or recommending their brand!

They seem to strike a very good balance between price and performance.

They have been making motherboards for years. I owned one about 4 years ago and was not to happy with it. It looks like they are trying to build a better name for themselves now. Might be time for me to give them another go.

They've also been making notebooks for a few years now. They've just never had any sort of retail presence before, until the Wind.
