WHY DONT BUY ASUS ?

Hi, this post is dedicated to all those who want to buy Asus product. In October 23 I bought a Asus mainboard Masximus V. When the board turned out to be faulty, sent it in the original packaging for Asus Uk. Everything went smoothly, the case dealt with Mr. Jay Parmer. After about 4 weeks of waiting (board was sent for repair to Slovakia), waited a total of 3 months. I received my plate. After unpacking, we found that the board is packaged only in the gray box. Once opened, I discovered that it is only in the middle of the board itself without any accessories without the original box, with no antenna and module wi-fi, no drivers, cables, sata 6gb, she was just a bare board.

When I took out the film flew to the floor of reset bios button. It turned out that the box was damaged in the corner, there may not be up to the board if it was packed in orginal box.

Case's strange enough that Mr. Jay Parmer at the beginning of a very nice gentleman, now says that there is no original packaging and can not send it to me and that I have the drivers downloaded from the internet.

I think it's a scandal, never again do not buy asus, I honestly do not recommend. I have not met yet this treatment.

Here are some pictures, I hope that someone will take it quickly and help me recover   my property from ASUS

Certainly look like they have got you over a barrel.

When sending anything back for repair it is always better to take some photos of what is being sent back.

The Forum Editor would probably be able to give you the advice that you require.

You could contact him by using the Contact Forum Editor and ask for his help or just wait until he or others can give you the information that is needed on here.

In the meantime just wait and see if anyone else can help you with you problem.

Thank you guys for answer, today i get email from mister Jay:

Dear Adam

Kindest Regards,

Right, now I checked the first e-mail was attached file Terms and Condition. He do not write that is joined. Besides, now so I think that after he first unpacked the parcel and was able to respond that it is in the original packaging. On the other hand, it's really weird, people holding boxes of different components to year if you send in original packaging. I've heard that Asus does not want to be responsible for the stolen accessories in service - Czech Rebublic.

I didn't watch all of the video, it is far too long for a simple unpacking if a motherboard.

Let's try to get the facts right, so we can advise you. As I understand it, the board was faulty, and you returned it to Asus in the original packing.

Where did you buy the board from?

You don't mention what the fault was -can you provide more detail?

How long after you received the board did the fault reveal itself?

How much time elapsed between receiving the board and returning it?

Did you send all the cables etc. back with the board - in other words was it returned in exactly the same state as when it was received?

Did you record the manufacturer's serial number before you returned the board?

Please answer those questions, and we'll take it from there.

Hi, thanks for your help

  • Yes motherboard did not work, so I sent it first to the store. (Komplett.ie), they found that the pins are bent in The socket processor, and that there is no warranty, so they sent me a CD back and said that I had to deal with alone. So I sent it to Asus' original packaging prior arrangement -i bought from Komplett.ie, that was 23.october 2012
  • Fault was LGA Socket 1155P G / F SMT
  • First fault, when I bought the board from Komplett.ie, I detected immediately after connecting the board.
  • A second fault, when I received the repaired board from Asus, BIOS reset button, just flew out of the bag where there was a record. Button was broken off. A box (not our original) was slightly crumpled in the corner.
  • If we are talking about Komplett.ie about 4 weeks. Because Komplett.ie board then sent me when I was on vacation. Earlier I asked them to send just as I get back from holiday.
  • If we're talking about Asus, the board of Komplett.ie came back to me after 3 weeks, I sent it to Asus about 05/01/2013

I know it's complicated, but that's what it was, waiting for the board of 23.october 2012 :) -so I asked exactly the same state can box and everything that was in the middle. Here is a link to the photo that should be in the box:

  • Yes I have the serial number of board

Thank you for all help

I am finding this thread a little hard to understand, so can you please confirm the following (as I understand it?).

(1) The item was purchased from Komplett of Ballycoolin Dublin 15, Eire.

(2) You purchased the item on 23 October 2012

(3) Komplett told you there was no warranty on the item, and you had to take any issues up with Asus direct.

(4) Was there any mention or explanation about the 3 year 'local warranty' on the items you have.
