ASUS XONAR DGX 5.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Gaming Audio Card

5 out of 5 eggs ASUS is the new Creative for sound 09/11/2014

This review is from: ASUS XONAR DGX 5.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Gaming Audio Card

Pros: The Xonar line is literally the best sound card line I have ever used (22 years experience).
I have owned the DX (7.1 surround) for years and now the DGX (5.1 surround).
The drivers install fine; the complaining 1-eggers are just dumb.
PCIe 1x is the way to go, and this card is very small!
Sound quality is immediately, noticeably better over an on-board device, for both in- and output.
Cheap and high quality.
I sound at least 2x sexier with the increased mic volume and quality. ;)
This thing can get LOUD with the "AMP" boost. (i personally use pro-gamer setting).

Cons: Heaphone surround mode is a *little* tinny sounding, BUT it is minimized when change the "room size" to a smaller room. I just do not use the function, but I did in the past and just grew accustomed to the tinniness.

Other Thoughts: All of these "tech knowledge - 5" newbs writing these 1-egg reviews are full of tripe. They likely have never worked in the PC field and are self-titled 5s because they "built their own PC that 1 time." I'm not just an enthusiast; I have actually worked as a PC sales and repair technician and have done so as a hobby on the side for years.
Drivers install fine, and do not use a downloader or 3rd party app.
When the device is properly installed, with nothing on/in the PC interfering with it, is mysteriously works PERFECTLY and sounds amazing.
TBH, giving 1 egg due to lack of tech knowledge is almost as bad as voting 1 egg for a DOA. At least the DOA is POSSIBLY the manufacturer's fault.
ASUS is truly becoming the new Creative for sound cards.

4 out of 5 eggs I like it! 03/24/2014

This review is from: Vizio 24" Razor Thin 1080p LED HDTV - E241A1

Pros: Perfect for a small, wall-mounted TV as it is very lightweight. Has all necessary inputs. Color, resolution and brightness are very good for 24"!

Cons: refurb apparently mean you get a smashed bottom corner!

D-Link Cloud Router 2000 (DIR-826L), Wireless N600, Dual-Band, Gigabit Ports, USB SharePort, mydlink enabled

Pros: Internal and external interface device mgmt, works only as a switch and WAP if needed (i use a commercial router at home and plug into only the LAN port), easy GUI-based device mgmt, very powerful wireless antenna, coexisting dual-band radio effectively gives you 2 WAPs (newer devices get to use the stronger GHz band), true gigabit LAN.
This thing has not given me a single issue, and the wireless works flawlessly even though I live in an apartment complex.

Cons: "True gigabit routing" feature is terrible, turn it off immediately!
"The limitation is that both of SPI and QoS engine will be disabled automatically when True Gigabit Routing Connectivity is enabled."
Why would you willingly kill your firewall AND QoS?

Other Thoughts: I'm a Cisco man (as far as enterprise networking is concerned), but I have always had better luck with D-Link home products.
Remember to update the firmware using the website, not the built in feature.
