(.... all this ASUS rant here ....)
Well good for u, u happened to deal with good seller. When i sell stuff i give 20 days warranty on my retro parts. Some stuff even have more warranty, that if the thing fail in that period of time i will refund back the money to the buyier.. And i dont even sell on ebay (at least yet).. Sure some times when we are mad need, not to go and rage on someone that did some shit, but talk firts instead..
ASUS back in the day was top notch, I still have first model of 386 ASUS motherboard (first model they ever produced) and it works just fine, so are some of my other 386 and 486 and Pentium motherboards. To be honest only ASUS things which died on me were literally:
- A8N-E (may have been killed by the PSU).
- K7M (it died laying in box - well it's not fully dead, perhaps some caps dried up because it works until it heats up, then hangs up).
- Several ASUS notebooks - I must admit, that ASUS notebooks are crap compared to Dell machines... but well, every other notebook brand is crap compared to Dell... 😁
- Some budget ASUS graphic cards.
Other than that ASUS and early AsRock motherboards are very reliable (ie. budget ASUS boards compared to budget Gigabyte boards - even in the capacitor plague period, and especially to post-2000 MSI board which are super unreliable).
So in my opinion you were simply unlucky but that doesn't change that ASUS was and still is a very decent brand when it comes to motherboards.
