We have payed top bucks for these kind of products... they should work well at day 1...
This is what it is like being a first adopter.
I too have been building comouters for 20 years, and this is what happens on new platforms.
Heh... Pentiums, you rememver that whole mess? The entire p90 processor was defective.
How about the 686? Remember the ide controller issues?
Pentium 2 slot a's, you remember the issues with the Motherboards and the external l3 cache?
How about the ddr2 issues with the k5 and p4 motherboards?
My point is.... This is the norm. New product, all new platform, all new chipset.... we are going to have issues.
That said, I agree it was rushed, so does Asus, but we have daily interaction with elmor, regular bios updates, support, and I consider that worth the premium.
