Are Biostar and MSI considered good motherboard manufacturers?

    Do they have quality, reliability, and warranty equal to ASUS and Abit?

    That's asking quite a lot in general terms.
    The *only* answer: "That's a matter of opinion "

    Maybe you'll find sthg useful in Tom's Hardeware Guide and on the
    Anandtech site. Google for them, easy to find.

    I've had a Biostar M6TLA with an Intel P11 300MHZ CPU and Win 95 =>
    Win98 since Feb. 1998. Used daily with ZERO problems. Replaced the
    battery once -- probably needs it again as clock loses time. System
    works so well I'm very reluctant to upgrade but lack of W98 support may
    force me. Rarely see a BSOD. Reboot and defrag weekly by choice, not

    One data point -- not necessarily a recommendation.

    I've used MSI boards since the 486-33 days, and they've always been
    good boards. Like Asus, Abit, Biostar, and most everyone else, they had the
    spat of bad caps ... I've gotten pretty darn good at doing 6116/6119 boards

    Biostar looks to do good boards - the six I've got out at my
    customer's sites work good. Wish they had better BIOS support, though ...

    Well, I'll agree one or two good experiences don't neccesarily make a
    reccomendation, but anyway I just tossed a biostar 8500 and P-200 combo, I
    bought them used 5 years ago. Still worked but needed everything else, just
    couldn't justify the expense for the other parts.
