ASUS P8P67 PRO (REV 3.1) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS P8P67 PRO (REV 3.1) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: NONE, wont post, board was shipped with bent cpu pins that Newegg will not cover under warranty!

Cons: First I want to say that I build and repair computer systems for a living, I have put together over 100 LGA1155 socket systems alone. The cpu on the 1155 socket is of a flat design so there is nothing protruding on the cpu to bend the pins in the motherboard socket. I received the board and found out 4 of the pins were bent in the cpu socket of the motherboard! I returned the motherboard to NewEgg and was told the warranty was void BECAUSE THE PINS WERE BENT IN THE CPU SOCKET! --ah... yes thats why I returned it. Newegg stated it was my fault that the pins were bent and voided the warranty! Now I have an 180 dollar paper weight. I contacted ASUS and they also said that the warranty is voided if the pins were bent. So both NewEgg and ASUS assumed that I bent the pins, this is preposterous. There is zero possibility that I bent the pins on this board. This ended a very long relationship with me and Newegg, and I also will not buy an ASUS product again! BUYER BEWARE!!

Fuzzy analog and poor QAM reception

Pros: easy to setup, works with Windows 7. Works with Vista.

Cons: With good cable signal, my analog cable channels were much more grainy than my 50inch panny plasma tv, or my 27 inch Polaroid lcd tv. My biggest gripe, is that I only get my 4 hdtv locals on digital clear QAM out of 17 possible clear QAM channels. Both of my tv's get all 17 with their built in tuners.

Overall Review: I tried to call their tech support, was told their was a 15 min waiting period, after waiting 5 minutes or so, it went to a voice message. No one returned my call.
