Default pcvillage (pcvonline.com) poor merchandise?

I just bought an asus striker extreme from pcvonline.com since the board was the cheapest there.
How wrong was I to do that.
They sent me an open box, the instruction booklet was all teared up the board had fingerprints on it but the worst the board was defective.
I have just contacted them and see what they will do about it but its really frustrating.

I'll keep you guys updated since pcvonline is a canadian website.
Should have gotten it from NCIX I never have any problems there...

Ouch, sorry to hear that man. Hopefully they'll take it back and send you a "new" one.

I would not have minded if it were like a few fans or such but dang its a 350+ $ motherboard.

Like I told them DOA happens but if I pay the full price don't send me some used, unworking hardware.

omgwtf- Were your boxes opened and the merchandise handled? I highly doubt it unless you actually bought an open box item.

Hey Schwarz, did you get a replacement board from them yet?
And if so, did they reimburse you for return shipping fees?
