Asus P8Z77-V Mainboard Review: Mainstream LGA 1155 Mainboard from Asus
17 June 2013
Summary: The functionality and features of this mainboard could have been fit for a flagship board of the past, but today it is just enough to place this product in the very mainstream segment, making it the junior model from Asus on Intel Z77 Express chipset. And it is probably the first time that we see wireless support implemented in a far not the top mainboard model like that.
Conclusion: Given the good level of performance and an extensive feature set that I saw from the P8Z77-V not too long ago, some may wonder why they should consider this board instead. Well the way to look at it and as it happens the way I see it, is what if you don’t need all the extra options such as WiFi or better overclocking potential? This is where more basic boards come into the game.
Conclusion: Looking at this motherboard with the mainstream user in mind, which may seem a bit obvious, its a down to earth statement to say that you don’t have to pay the odds to get a board that hoas a ton of features, good performance and in the case of mainstream boards, but compatibility with older components and also the longevity for future upgrades.
Excerpt: The other day we got a chance to look at the ASUS P8Z77-V Pro/Thunderbolt and found ourselves extremely impressed with what ASUS was offering us. Not only did we have a board that performed extremely well out of the box, but we had something with a ton of features that managed to also hit at a really strong price point.
Excerpt: Sitting in a dark corner of my office for the last few months have been a couple of motherboards that all have one thing in common. One of the main features on the board is the inclusion of Thunderbolt. As time went on, though, it seemed that not a whole lot was happening with this technology.
ASUS P8Z77-V LX review: affordable ASUS Z77 motherboard
6 December 2012
Excerpt: ASUS usually only sends us their most high-end motherboards. The result is that, when we are trying to come up with buying advice for the entry-level segment, that we always end up recommending other brands. Still, we've always wondered about how ASUS compares to other manufacturers in the affordable segment. To help us in our endeavour, ASUS sent us the £88 P8Z77-V LX. This is the cheapest Z77 ATX motherboard in their line-up.
