ASUS K8V Deluxe Wireless Edition Motherboard Review - Packaging & Specifications

The latest piece of hardware to go through our labs is the ASUS K8V Deluxe Wireless Edition motherboard based on VIA's popular K8T800 chipset for the AMD Athlon 64. It contains enough features to put a smile on any geeks face - maybe even enough for yours.

Packaging & Specifications

 

Sporting a retail box with a flip cover and flashy graphics, first impressions are all what first make this motherboard. As previously mentioned, the K8V Deluxe Wireless Edition's box is heavily populated with images and text advertising ASUS's included wireless bundle; for a little while I had completely forgotten an actual motherboard was in my hands. With many bold statements brought forth by their box and website alike, I was eager at start to get my hands on this new wireless bundle and test it out.

 

 

ASUS's K8V Deluxe also comes in standard flavour, sans the wireless package, for a reduced price of $135.00 compared to $155.00 for the wireless edition. Additionally, we plan to find out whether or not this added bundle is not only worth the price, but worth the motherboard at all.

 

 

Included in the K8V Deluxe Wireless Edition are the following components:

 

- ASUS K8V Motherboard

 

- Motherboard manual & wireless bundle manual

 

- WiFi 802.11b card and antenna

 

- 2x Serial ATA cables and dual-head S/ATA power adaptor cable

 

- 2x ATA 66/100/133 cables, 1x ATA 33 cable, and 1x FDD cable

 

- Single-port FireWire PCI card

 

- Single-port Coaxial S/PDIF PCI card

 

- Quadruple-port USB PCI card

 

- WinSuite Gold software bundle

 

- 1x software/driver CD's

 

 

Packing a very impressive bundle of accessories, ASUS continues their prestigious reputation of providing an abundance of accessories in their retail motherboard packages. And, as apparent in their recent motherboard releases, ASUS remains in contract with WinSuite; this is their primary software suite of choice when it comes to their motherboards.
