Best VRM out of motherboards in this price range. Has at least 1 or 2 new ports, including pcie 4.0 m.2, usb 3.2 gen 2. pcie 4.0 graphics card slot.
Manual isn't written very well, making it confusing to figure out how to plug in various components. BIOS keyboard navigation is awkward. BIOS mouse control is buggy. no front panel connection header, need to plug lots of little cords in for the power switch, indicator LEDS, etc. Can bust your nvme drive if you aren't paying attention & install it with the risers as they're pre-installed for an uncommon, small size. 2.5gb lan has poor support & very limited selection for network hardware. Limited number of pcie ports meaning when new hardware interconnects com out upgrades will be limited.
Lots of compromises for the price. Bought this unit for the high quality VRM (power stage) for the price. It doesn't deserve 4 stars because the manual is pretty bad and it doesn't come with the little 10 cent part to make it easier to plug in all the switches & indicator LEDs. I rate it as "average" because it's missing a lot of quality of life features I've had in motherboards in this price range, for a decade now. I have poor eyesight and big fingers and getting all the front panel connections in place was a massive hassle.

Aside from the great build quality for thermals and other specs, SUPER easy to build on Looks great BIOS is great
Everything worked on the first try, can't think of any weakness
Definitely recommend for anyone looking for a quality motherboard

Solid product Quality construction/Parts Great IO
While I have only had this board about a month, this is the first computer I have built in over 20 years and I have to say that this MSI B550 Tomahawk was a great purchase. Excellent quality and very intuitive layout. More than Pleased.

High quality Easy setup Looks good
High quality product. Easy to install, even the pins are all labeled. I have no complaints about this board. I bought it on black Friday sale, so even the price was fantastic. As for the bios update and what not, I used MEs quick mount so I can't speak to that.

Quality heatsinks on VRMs Good Connectivity Good Looks
On the pricier side of b550 boards lacks wifi
Used this board for both my own and my wife's build (Ryzen 5 5600x), solid boards easy connectivity and plenty of room for expansion. The positioning of the front panel USB 3 plug was somehwat difficult to make work well with my case setup, but that was bad preplanning on my part.
