Got it for $180 at Microcenter - fantastic all-rounder motherboard that has just about every damn thing a self-respecting system builder could want (except, perhaps, more fan headers - there are only 2 CHA_FAN headers but that's such a petty complaint I won't dock a star).

The power supply side of things looks good, with more power phases than I can count (fairly sure it's around 10) and very substantial VRM heatsinking. No complaints there.

Expansion slots are all accounted for - six SATA with SATAe (even though SATAe products don't exist), and dual M.2 with M.2 RAID support and up to 22110 size on the back slot. I do wish that they'd lended this board their M.2 heatsink (the one that's present on boards like the Z270i) because our bare-chip 600p is getting up to 55C after just a couple installers, but it's still well within Intel's thermal spec and anyone who's going to be heavily stressing their SSDs will be smart enough to buy heatsinked ones anyway.

Aesthetically, it's fabulous - RGB lighting on the PCH heatsink (out of the box, it cycles through colors smoothly but can be configured with the AURA software), polished aluminum heatsinks, matte PCB and steel reinforced GPU slots. No complaints there.

The BIOS is intuitive and easy to use, but it's just a BIOS - if you know what you're doing, very little differential between manufacturers. The Q-Fan control is very handy though and works well on the DC fans that came with the case, so that's a plus.

from completed build Define Mini C & Z270G & M.2 SSD

++ micro-ATX form factor

++ two M.2 slots

++ on board sound with optical S/PDIF connector

++ on board Wifi > no additional card needed

++ Asus UEFI-BIOS auto tuning feature

++ Asus fan expert software

Would prefere a cheaper Z270 edition without LED / Aura feature and with less SATA connectors (I'm using only a M.2 SSD at the moment)

Beautiful mobo with all the options I was looking for. Works like a champ. I made use of the RGB header to do some nifty desk lighting too!
