As a long time DFI user and fan this really makes me sad. I cant believe Oskar Wu is now in the industrial division, what a friggin waste of his talents. I hope a competitor offers him a deal and he gets out of that company.

I think you summed it all up with that paragraph.

I only had one DFI board, P45 JR, and it was a great board but pricey, as you mentioned, compared to others. Before I got that board I never bothered doing research about DFI support and their BIOS support for that board was horrible. Their forum also sucks with I-know-it-all mods. I am sure if they just lower their prices and better their support they will be back in the game in no time, they just have to stop thinking that they are the best overclocking board manufacturer.

I bought one of their boards, it was a nightmare. The BIOS was bugged and every 'fixed' version was even worse. But that's the price you had to pay if you want a S939 board that used AGP and had an Nvidia chipset.
