If Newegg has been changing theirs due to direct contact with Asus then it just shows even Asus didn't know what's going on as the dates were changed from 11/19 to 11/15 and then subsequently back to 11/19, pretty sure there was an 11/18 in there at some point too. So it looks like their source at Asus is just as "clueless" as the people over at NCIX.
Again, for the last time... it's Asus who should be in the hot seat here.
Honestly, I agree with you. I watched NewEgg change their release date multiple times too, from the 15th, to the 18th, to the 20th, then finally settling on the 19tth. We're all still sittin' around clueless wonderin' what's gonna happen and just HOPING that things go smoothly and that we receive our boards soon. ASUS has not given us ANY info this entire time, no official release date, final pricing, nothin'. Then we have to be inundated with reviewers teasin' us wit' pictures/benchmarks of their own boards while we still sit on our hands patiently waiting to get ours.
Don't get me wrong, NCIX is still at fault for leading its customers on with their faulty information, but ASUS could've made things a lot easier for everyone just by droppin' a line on us and givin' us some info. They coulda sent us a link, an e-mail, a youtube vid (wait, they did that but it had NO INFO in it!), a rap song, SOMETHING to inform us of what's goin' on wit' this board!
All we can do is keep our fingers crossed.........
