This review is from: ASUS P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Bought this motherboard on sale....couldn't resist the deal. Having onboard video (with integrated graphics cpu) is a plus if you ever need it, and the built in wifi would be nice if it wasn't horrible. The board looks nice and neat....easy to run wires to where they need to go. Temps are good, and haven't had any problems with processor, ram, hard drives, etc. The bios is very user-friendly (dummy proof).
The wifi adapter is garbage. First of all, if you don't screw the thing to the motherboard before you mount the motherboard to the case, you will be taking it off and doing it again. Then good look poking the thing sticking out the back of the motherboard through your rear panel on your case. If you get that far without breaking anything, maybe you'll have a connector on your antenna cord that will plug into the port (mine just falls right out, will not even stay in the hole). If I sit there and hold the cord into the connector, it goes from 2 bars to 5 bars.....even doing that the USB adapter I have gives me 5 times faster speeds. I know it's being nit picky, but when you buy something you want EVERYTHING to work...and it's annoying when it doesn't.
I'm not pleased with the terrible wifi, but I'm not sending back the board. I just don't have the time to fool with starting over. Everything else seems to work fine...so I'm going with 3 eggs. Maybe next upgrade I will get something of better quality.
I am sorry that the motherboard has not met your expectations. Should you have any questions about ASUS or about your motherboard, please contact me through email. Ref: 3350221.
