Asus’ original P8Z77-V LX was, and still is, a solid entry-level Z77 motherboard. Can the P8Z77-V LX2 motherboard’s subtle design changes and reduced price prove that it is ready to compete in the tough sub-£80 Z77 motherboard market?
In any entry-level market, a few pounds can be the difference between one product being purchased and the other staying on the shelf. Asus’ original P8Z77-V LX was a strong competitor in the entry-level Z77 market, but its feature set forced retailers to price it a few pounds higher than alternative boards from the likes of MSI and Gigabyte.
Not content on giving up in a valuable and fiercely-contested market segment, Asus has made some slight refinements and upgrades to the LX and marketed it as the P8Z77-V LX2. Can the most notable change – sub-£80 availability – prove that Asus has an entry-level Z77 motherboard that can compete with models from the likes of MSI and Gigabyte?
