As for me personally I have no problems with my ASUS P67 board other than the faulty chipset but that is shared among all P67 boards and is the fault of Intel and not ASUS.

ASRock has started cramming tons of features into high-end boards for excellent prices and everything works as it should until it actually gets some use.

I'm not a big fan of ASUS either; their low-end boards (sub-$150) are terrible. You really have to pay to get decent motherboards out of them. Gigabyte is the best in my experience.

Biostar's also good, but they seem to be pushable to extremes, and then pop. My P45 TPower was excellent for a while, and I was hitting almost 5GHz on my E8400, but after 1.5 years it just stopped working.

Then you guys should really read up on the Asrock forums, cause they are currently the only brand that really seems to be listening to what their customers have to say. They allready released tons of bios fixes AFTER people on the forums informed Asrock about potential bugs.
As for ASUS, it used to be a solid brand, YES, but last couple of years the only thing that keeps them going are the exotic features on their boards. In my opinion they are losing ground fast, and issues with their boards seem to be growing. I currently have an ASUS (see sig), but I did have some annoying issues with it not posting cause of clocked mem, or suddenly failing an oc, having to revert to default. I nearly broke it in half recently cause it wouldn't power up my video card (an issue which lots of people had with this board with ATI cards, according to the asus forums). This issue BTW has been reported countless times on their forums, but I still haven't seen a fix from ASUS.
As far as I'm concerned, ASUS don't give a rats ass about their customers as long as they keep selling their name. And they know it's the name that keeps them going. Asrock aside, I'd pick a Gigabyte over ASUS anytime now.
