This review is from: Logitech Z623 200 W 2.1 Speaker System, THX-Certified
Pros: the equation of excellent sound equals excellent soundcard/audio chip plus excellent speakers/headsets. And my system meets all these components and this speaker system is one of the pieces. It sounds so fantastic for both music and games. those who complained this speaker system is not good enough either had a cheap soundcard or low-end onboard audio chip mobo.
Other Thoughts: I didn't buy the system from newegg. but I bought it a local chain store. I was looking for a high-end system between corsair sp2500 and this system. Finally, I decided to go with this logictech system because the sp2500 subwoofer was too big for my space. And I glad I got this and saved some green for a good headsets later.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: this soundcard produces a clear, clean, deep detailed sound. the card is designed for specifically music. But I found it to be really enjoyable for both music and games. the sound control center panel is easy to setup and use. It hasn't given me any issues at all so far.
Cons: I was shockingly disappointed at first after proper installation in Wind7. Because Wind7 didn't recognize the device and there was no response from the card. Finally, I figured it all out by downloading the drivers for Wind7 from asus website right after installing the card. the cd included only had drivers for vista and xp. the worse was the downloaded driver was in a compressed format file and I had to use winzip to open it up then install it.
Other Thoughts: I upgraded to this soundcard from asus xonar dx. from my experience with the two cards, they both use the same driver version and the same sound control center panel. if you can't afford the stx, the dx sounds almost as good as the stx.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This card never disappointed me. I have this setup as SLI and its performance is equivalent to the gtx 590. The only time it falls behind the gtx 590 is when some games require more memory.
Cons: SLI setup draws a lot of power (i need a 1kw psu) and generate a lot of heat.
Other Thoughts: Man! it's getting cheaper and cheaper every month. If you can afford, I recommend it. Better yet get the one with double memory.READ FULL REVIEW
