Quoted from the main page here........
The above would be truly bad news in my opinion based on the fact I just got my 3rd frakked up ANUS motherboard in a row, purchased no less to replace a defective board that I have to send back to ANUS as it's beyond Newegg's return policy. Leaving me to get creative at home with how I connect to the internet until it's all resolved.
To add further fuel to the fire, ANUS boards seem to be getting a lot of end user complaints. Far more than "usual". I used to consider the boards to be generally decent quality, but lately it's a gamble buying them.
So the newest one, an M3N WS, purchased for the PCI-X controller, has something whacked with the realtek Audio hardware. Drivers from disc will not install, drivers from ANUS support site won't install. However deleting the attempted installs of said driver and rebooting allows a generic MS HD Audio driver to install with pretty much ZERO tweak options. As I would, at best on this machine maybe listen to an occasional Youtube video, maybe something from a DVD.
The problem is I know that the hardware has an issue of some sort, and I kinda feel like I should get what I paid for. Best I can tell, this lame MS Driver gives me no access to the optical audio ports should I want to use that.
My other board, the one being returned, I purchased without looking because I saw "Pro" in the title, and figured I was getting a decent workstation board, not a bargain basement cheapie. Problems booting, board doesn't get power. Takes several attempts, (can go on for hours trying) to get it to boot up. crashes constantly. And yes, I know absolutely for certain it's the board. ALL parts in it have been thoroughly tested. Best part was the realtek audio driver window would pop up saying I just plugged a device into the port, then pop up you have unplugged a device and this would go on and on and on until I disabled the drivers.
Also, should I be concerned the ANUS tech support had no idea what a Power PC & Computing power supply is? (sarcasm) It's only one of the best known, highest quality P/S's available.
A pity the quality has slipped so badly, Anus used to be a decent brand.
