I'm pretty surprised to see an Editor's Choice award go to a "low to mid-range" motherboard that costs an insane $270.
Is price no longer a factor for that award? I thought it was supposed to reflect that a product is a good/best value for consumers.

It's one thing to charge a little bit extra an early-adopter tax for PCIe 4.0... but over double what the boards with the previous top-tier chipset cost just for a feature that almost nobody can use right now? I mean, come on. It's not like anybody would have accepted a $100+ price hike and a cheap chipset fan for a mobo with SATA express.
