Poor Planing

Allen R., Newegg
16 June 2009
  • Summary: Its a cool board and not at a bad price if you get it working. It has great sound and onboard LAN plus a USB slot for everything along with the additional 2 that it comes with for expansion slot mounting. there is alot of potential here for this board to be good.
  • Pros: Haven't been able to use this particular board as it was DOA. I have been using both the P5Qpro and the P5Q SE for about a year and I love them both despite the same problem mentioned in the cons. I can say that the Asus drivers for the sound and the power saver stuff is really awesome.
  • Cons: This board is not planned very well. first off, Asus sends a retail mothboard out with absolutely no mounting hardware. Second, there is only a single IDE port. I guess since everything has changed to SATA its acceptable. I just now have to get converters. My third problem with this is WHY, why i...

Dennis W., Newegg

  • Summary: first mobo worked no problem and the second one will not work, past 30 days from day I bought it. Guess I will have to eat it

  • Cons: dont buy this 50% chance of it not working. Asus should have done a better quality control

Great board, bad sound drivers

Jon p., Newegg
10 April 2009
  • Summary: Get a real soundcard instead of using the onboard junk.
  • Pros: Booted with zero problems and errors right out of the box.
  • Cons: The drivers for the onboard soundMAX chip need help in a big way. It seems it wont recognize that anything is plugged in until you fiddle with checkboxes in the driver properties. The autodetect feature is neat, but broken -- it kept wanting me to plug my headphones into a non-existant plug. I fi...

Disappointed

Gerald Helmer, Amazon
4 February 2009
  • Summary: The first one I received had to be returned and is did not work properly. The 2nd one worked about 4 months but now if you try to boot from the CD it just reboots the computer. I cannot load windows because it just reboots instead.

NOT THE ASUS I REMEMBER

Don Kandlbinder, Amazon
2 November 2008
  • Summary: I bought this board upon the past personal history with other Asus boards. Getting to this board, it will not recognize my ram, nor my two DVD (ROM) R/W drives. I have bought a new DVD burner and will have to let you know if that did the trick.

  • Excerpt: Покупать не советую. Лучше приобретать материнки от Gigabyte или Elitegroup.
  • Pros: Качество сборки от ASUS
  • Cons: Непонятные самопроизвольные перезагрузки. Искал причины - так и не нашёл. Перегрева нет, а перезагружается на некоторых играх, даже не на требовательных к ресурсам.
