Asrock 990FX fatality killer and Etron

I agree Etron is CRAP! a destroyer of usb devices.. I too had same issues, the rear USB ports never gave me any issues, they were using a ASMEDIA usb controller, the front USB 2 ports worked MOST of the time, but front USB3.0 was a destroyer, it killed so many flash drive and portable hard drives.. and if that were not enough Asrock customer support was disgusting to deal with, took weeks, and RMA process they dropped shipped me a USED replacement board. not even in a fatality box. I was super pissed off. that was in 2014 and I have never bought another Asrock product since. It was insane what someone has to go through to get the manufacture to agree on RMA in the first place, and to never get a new board! F U asrock! I have also read that another guy did extensive testing and its not just a Asrock issue, the issue is the Etron controller, he found 3 different boards with Etron and was able to duplicated the same issue on 3 different boards, and two different usb devices.. STAY AWAY FROM ETRON! By the way i still have that asrock 990fx board in a closet

Etron is trash. I make it a point to use my USB 2.0 ports for transferring to external hard drives despite being much slower.
