Is it just me or is Customer Support going by the wayside from motherboard manufacturers. My board included of course (Asus), I've read reviews on several different websites about very unsatisfied customers over the last year or so. It would at least appear that the makers are offering at best, half assed-Bios upgrades and software components that don't mesh very well if at all.
Is it simply a matter of getting something to work once and then throw it on the market as quick as possible to turn a buck? Much like what Microsoft did with their initial offering of Vista? To hell with the customer, we'll figure out a patch later....that's how it's beginning to seem.
I've also seen this with some of the optical drives and a few of the USB flash drives as well.
I'm not one to use the "good old days" comparison but doesn't quality and reputation matter anymore?
