It was a tough choice (pun intended). What sold me is the 5 years of warranty and the legendary sturdiness of Sabertooth boards. Seems that TUF is virtually a re-branded Sabertooth but with the Z270 chipset (and thus more features than previous generations). I didn't come across any reports of people getting it DOA or having any kinds of reliability issues. I hope it will last longer than five years, I am confident that my i7 will hold its ground just fine. Aesthetically it looks like a modern tank. I loved installing it, hooking up stuff to it. As soon as I got set on this mobo I knew I had to get a windowed case. At this time I can't imagine getting a different board for my build but the beast is pricey, yet I feel I got what I paid for.

I had only one negative observation, and perhaps that's because I am a fool and overlooked something in the manual: when installing my M.2 SSD into the first (horizontal) position within the armor, the provided screws were too short to secure the drive. Not sure why would they supply a place within the armor but give no longer screws. I used the plastic thingy (can't think of a better description) that is meant to be used to secure an M.2 drive vertically in the second position. Its long shaft fit perfectly into the opening for the screw and its cap kept the drive in place. Not ideal but works alright.

Beautiful. I love the TUF design.

-1: Aura software was unnecessarily difficult to find.

Very nice, solid-built MB. The BIOS is very easy to navigate and the OC tab is easy to negotiate. No problems at all.
