  Iwill P4R533-N Motherboard

Summary


By: Dan Mepham

There isn't a lot we can say that hasn't already been covered in the previous pages at some point. The P4R533-N is an excellent board. It's very clear that Iwill has gone out of its way to try to produce a uniquely Iwill product, as opposed to another cookie-cutter 850E board, and that's something we appreciate.

Components are of good quality, and the board offers a fairly standard feature set. Performance is very good as well, although we maintain that performance should be one of the last factors considered when purchasing a motherboard. Focus on build and component quality, design, and stability, and then worry about performance.

We would rank the P4R533-N up there with the Asus's and Intels of the world in terms of quality. Unfortunately, that also places them with the Asus's and Intels in terms of pricing as well, and that may be a tough pill to swallow for some.

If you're in the market for an 850E board, the P4R533-N is definitely one to take a very serious look at. We can all but guarantee it's a purchase with which you'll be extremely satisfied.
