Pros: Great sound, built in headphone amp that powers my HA-RX900's very well, easy to switch between speakers/headphones, actual good EQ settings, free mic (mic is meh,) crystal voice actually works well blocking out the sound of the rather loud AC unit 3 feet from the mic completely, software UI is well thought out.
Cons: Had to reinstall the software once because the sound output stopped after a windows update, not a huge deal. The SBX Pro Studio stuff all sounds bad in my opinion, but I think it is there to enhance low quality speakers and headphones (who would buy a $100+ soundcard with bad speakers though?)
Other Thoughts: I think most of the users having issues with this are running Windows 8 (why would anyone do that?) I'm using Windows 7 x64 and it seems to be coded quite well for it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Plenty of room. 4 usb 2.0 and esata on the front panel. Looks good, not heavy and the carrying handle is plenty sturdy. HDD mounting is the best of any case I have ever used. My GTX 570 fit nicely inside. Came with more than enough screws, and the mounting guide paper insert was helpful. Nice overall finish.
Cons: The plastic clips for the PCI slots aren't the best. I had to use a screw to hold my soundcard in place or it would be pushed in whenever I plugged my headphones or audio cables in. The LEDs on the fans do not work, and I was looking forward to them because the red would match the red LED on my sound card. Fans are also a bit weak.
Other Thoughts: Not really a fan of bottom mounted PSUs now after trying this, but you never really know unil you try! Would probably be better if my PSU was modular.READ FULL REVIEW
