Most Unsatisfactory reviews on this motherboard can probably be traced tothe inaptitude of purchaser. I bought one. Works Great.

Summary: It is hard for me to phantom why so many reviews for this mobo are so negative. A 3 plus Stars for a 5 Star wonder? I understand that the reason normally given is that it does not work as hoped and intended. So I spend quite a bit of my premium free time reviewing literally hundreds of the 3 or less star ratings and all the 1 star reviews to try to see if I could divine reasons as to why in many cases this board did not work properly or at all.
Summary: I've used Asus motherboards for many years. I've never had a major complaint. They provide reasonably timed updates on the firmware and the user sites are quite informative and useful. A quality product at a reasonable price.
Summary: The bluetooth radio on this thing is S***, someone needs to be brutally murdered publicly for equipping this thing with a dollar store BTradio, and expecting us to pay the hard earned coin. completely useless device..exactly 1 foot away from the radio with bluetooth stereo speakers right at this very moment, cuts in and out CONSTANTLY. GARBAGE!! other than that the board is adequate, confident you can find something much better.
Summary: The quality on the ASUS P8P67 Deluxe (and PRO) has been abysmal. My company bought 9 Deluxe and 3 PRO versions of these boards, 3 Deluxe have failed in a year, and one PRO. The voltage regulators seem to go bad and as a result the board will not POST. (It will not even get to a first POST step with Debug LED output). I've pulled the PSU, memory, CPU, disk drives, etc. (multiple times now) and put them into replacement motherboard(s).
Summary: I think I was crazed by the bells and whistles. I should have noticed there was a problem when every month a new function would just quit. I never could record to DVD and soon my onboard (it sounded good for a while)audio dropped out. The built in bluetooth never quite worked and the cute box with the 3.0 USB ports had to be removed to make another failure work. Finally, this brick goes by the Mayan calendar when it picks the days it wants to boot.
Summary: This is really a piece of trash. Three months later, 3 different memory module types, 3 video cards, many hard drives, mouses and keyboards and all same results, motherboard freeze randomly. Yo can see a lot of forums with the same issue (really many, many, many forums, included the one from Asus where all comments are from buyers, not Asus Company), this motherboard freezes and there is nothing you can do except send it back and pray the Lord that the "new one"...
Summary: This motherboard freeze with many memory card manufacturers and types and video cards, It's too many unstable. I prove it with 1 memory module Corsair Vengeance 8Gb, 2 Kingstone 2 GB modules and 2 more brands; 2 different video cards, even without hard drive, disk reader, keyboard and mouse and still same result, freeze ramdonly. You can see in forums that this is a common issue on this motherboard. I don't know this when I buy it and Asus don't write about.
Summary: This was my first build, and wanted to go with some of the best, everything went well until I installed the utilities, the pc would freeze on every startup after I installed the one untility from the ASUS disc. so I called them and was told I needed to download a patcher file and then download the updated utility from their website. The utility is AI Suite II (Couldn't remember had to look it up). But besides that it is Awesome I love my whole setup.
