Cons: Lasted 22 months in a cool 24 hour system. No warning before failure. Check the failure rates on this thing. This is pretty much the least reliable drive from a big name you can buy right now.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: proper pci-e 11ac adapter
neat looking pcb/heatsink
Cons: Refuses to connect to any router. On the rare instances that it does connect it performs well for anywhere between 20 seconds to 20 minutes before cutting out again. Over the past two weeks of having this adapter I've had it successfully connect twice since this issue came appeared.
Other Thoughts: RMA'd pce ac66 due to compatibility with z87. I've had to use my emergency 11g usb stick since I built my z87 because of the neverending headaches of incompatability, waiting for delayed product launches, and then getting faulty hardware. I've had a lot of email correspondence with asus reps and they're helpful to the point that they don't ignore me and rma my purchases when they're bunk. If there was another pcie 11ac option I'd have taken it already.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Xonar DG 5.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card
Pros: -excellent price
-as good as you'll need
-uni drivers are incredible
Cons: -died within 3 weeks
-costs 10 dollars to RMA
Other Thoughts: ASUS can spend an extra few hours to perform burn in tests. Infantile failures like this should never ever happen and it's a waste of time and money for the consumer, producer, and retailer. This really irks me because it was such a great card and I was thinking to myself "ASUS really got it right by charging what the card is actually worth". I guess I was wrong. I'm truly concerned if my RMA will even go over well. The shipping cost alone is insane (10 dollars, art thou jesting?) but that coupled with the fact that newegg is out of stock on this item and that I threw out the box last week I have a feeling even more of time and money is being wasted.
It's unfortunate but the bottom line is if you have an onboard solution and you aren't in the audio industry don't waste your time and money on a dedicated card.
