Defective Motherboard (BUYER BEWARE!)

Seatrez, Amazon
14 March 2014
  • Summary: I chose this motherboard because I was rebuilding a very old PC and this MB would be perfect for features and cost. After I installed everything and booted my system I got an error message that wanted me to "Insert a Boot Disc". After trying for about an hour to no avail I finally called ASUs Tech Support. 4 times, all day, I was kept on hold for up to one hour without ever getting thru to them. The next morning I called them at 8:00 AM which is when they open.

DOA. We'll see if the replacement is OK.

  • Summary: Dead on arrival. This is the first time in eighteen years of building a lot of computers with different brands of motherboards that I got a dead one. I sent the thing back to Amazon for an exchange for the exact same one, so we will see how it preforms IF the new board can post to the BIOS. All the guys at ASUS tech support seem to be handicapped with English as a second, third or fourth language, so it was hard to communicate just what was happening with this turkey.

  • Summary: I have heard great things about asus boards, so i thought this would be a great buy, this thing refuses to read any ram i put into it. I purchased one's directly from the manual and nothing. Returning for another.

Asus customer service disappoints to no end

Michael S. Thigpen, Amazon
5 December 2011
  • Summary: First off, the motherboard is great. When it worked it was wonderful. I love how easy it is to configure, it did everything i wanted. That being said.. It worked for two months.. then the sound simply broke. All audio ports produce static only. Windows recognizes sound is playing via meters and volume, but the motherboard only produces static. Great. I checked reviews and amazon and newegg and several others experienced this failure.

Ein Board mit macken

Dingo, Amazon
30 April 2014
  • Summary: Zu aller erst... Das Board was ich jetzt im PC verbaut habe ist schon das Ersatzboard (1:1 Tausch). Bei meinem alten Board, welches ich nach einer Woche tauschen musste, lief dann gar nichts mehr (POST CPU LED leuchtet rot). Nach den Standard Fehlersuchen (Bios Reset, Teile durchgetauscht), blieb nur noch das Board als Fehlerquelle. Nun gut das kann ja mal passieren. Das Board wurde anstandslos vom Anbieter getauscht. Ging sehr zügig.

  • Excerpt: Давно я ничего не брал Асусовского. И думаю теперь уже не скоро что-то опять возьму.
  • Pros: Цена Внешний вид Функционал Качество изготовления
  • Cons: Заглючила через полгода после начала эксплуотации. В биос зайти можно, а сделать там ничего нельзя - ни клава, ни мышь не работают. Вылечилось перепрошивкой биоса (повторно так же заглючила через год после перепрошивки - минус ещё один балл). Очень долго соображает при включении до начала загрузки ОС. Перегруженный красотами в ущерб удобству UEFI (то, что теперь вместо BIOS). eSATA не поддерживает port multiplier (2 sata hdd на одном кабеле), что критично для многодис...
