BIOSTAR TA870U3+ AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Price & features

Cons: Didn't read enough reviews on the Biostar I guess. My experience seems common for this board. I always bought Asus boards (11 times so far) and never had a single problem. I'm a long time Newegg customer and bought this mbd because of the price, the features and because I like Newegg.
Well, it looks like quality assurance isn't a part of the build process at Biostar. I've received two defective MBDs; first one was just DOA and the second was fine for 25 minutes but it belched a puff of smoke and went DOA before I could even finish loading the o/s.

***If all that wasn't bad enough, it cost me $12.17 each, plus 4-5 days shipping each time... just to return two defective boards. These two defective boards have cost me $24 plus nearly two weeks of waiting and I still don't have a working motherboard!***
Buying this inexpensive Biostar was for me, like a mouse peeing in a cash register; pretty soon it starts to run into money.

Other Thoughts: I've been doing the Newegg thing since about 2000 and had great service always. Newegg was very responsive (as always) and approved my RMAs and the refund quickly. Still, the shipping time and the expense made this a really tedious experience.
I'd think a small discount on your next Newegg purchase would be both nice and appropriate for folks who had this kind of purchase experience. (Hint, hint... I just ordered a new $170.00 Asus mbd from Newegg.)
