The Legit Reviews Best of 2009 Hardware Awards

It is hard to believe that another year flew by so quickly, but it has! That means Legit Reviews has turned seven years old and that you have have likely come across one of the hundreds of reviews that we have published this year. Since the year is almost over and new product launches are pretty much done for the year that means we can pick out the best products that were introduced in 2009!

Motherboards continue to use better components and the layout and themes of motherboards have gotten to the point where one might consider a motherboard a work of art. In 2009 we saw numerous motherboards come to market that blew our socks off, but a pair of late entries from that use Intel's mainstream P55 Express chipset from ASUS and Gigabyte quickly won our hearts.

Best and most expensive, too bad most people don't have the money for it.
Is there also a yearly Bang for Buck article?

And I don't know how true this rumor is but wasn't Ati coming with a new generation based on a 32 NM process called Hecatoncheires?
Not sure though, I thought it would be worth to mention it.

*Edit: Can be they skip the 32 nm process and head to 28 nm because of Globalfoundries trying to get their process done before 2011
Just a rumor though.

I couldn't help but notice that all of the motherboards were Intel. In terms of Pretty motherboards, you can't go past something like this http://dfi.com/portal/CM/cmproduct/XX_cmproddetail/XX_WbProdsWindow?action=e&windowstate=normal&mode=view DFI are also amazingly well equipped for a fair price.

Thought the Z-Drive would be the top SSD. Don't know if it is released yet or not.

At $1,375 for 256GB, I hardly would call it the best SSD of 2009!

I would say not the best considering price.
