P8P67 EVO Socket 1155 ATX motherboard is a solid choice for those still in the market for a Sandybridge motherboard. It offers some great features, but isn't one of those bundles that runs up the price by including every bell and whistle imaginable. It simply lets you assemble your components around it and get up and running with a stable system that can offer strong performance. During testing, the P*P67 EVO wasn't usually the top performer, but it did do well in the face of some serious competition from two other motherboards running on the same chipset.
The board doesn't have any serious negatives to discuss, but there are always places where improvements could be made. As a middle of the road offering in a crowded market, the board offers just about what you might expect. My top wish list item might be for it to offer more than two external USB 3.0 ports. Of the eight USB ports you'll find out back on the I/O panel, only two offer the SuperSpeed performance of USB 3.0.
A search of the Bigbruin.com shopping engine
finds the P8P67 EVO - but presently it is not available at any stores in the USA. Digging deeper will find it at places like Amazon.com, where the price is less than $140 (US). This makes it fairly reasonable, and it definitely offers a good bang for the buck.
In the end, the combination of features, performance, and price help the ASUS P8P67 EVO Socket 1155 ATX motherboard earn the Bigbruin.com "Recommended" award.
