Pros: Great blacks and color pallet
Cons: vertical viewing angle is mediocre due to backlight bleed have to be 100% level with the monitor for it to look good. this monitor is worth 280 i paid for it and nothing more, the fact that it originally retailed for 400 makes me laugh. If I had a chance to do it over again I would have got a korean monitor like I originally planned
UPDATE: After a year of ownership the top backlight is now failing, it flickers if things flash too brightly and even makes popping sounds... Bought a new monitor, gonna RMA this one and sell the replacement as soon as I get it this thing is terrible.
Other Thoughts: was hoping it would overclock like many other asus panels can.. even at 61 hz it drops framesREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: it might work at 200-300w?
Cons: avoid for dear life efficiency is terrible and will deliver nowhere near the rated power resulting in death.
Other Thoughts: Don't buy cheap power supplies.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: excellent software lets me do everything I could ever want to do.
The include microphone works better than any of my headset mic booms ever have
If you want all of the pros just look at their marketing material there's no need to repeat it all, it's a good product and it works
Cons: I have used 4 different headsets extensively with this card over the years I've also had it in 2 different pcs with 5-6 different configurations of hardware in each and if you don't update the drivers when prompted upon install you're going to have a bad time. the most random stuff you would never think of, such as a usb wifi card, can cause an absolute meltdown of your soundcard so have everything you'll ever use plugged in when updating drivers it will detect and do it's magic to work... Listed this because this is a bit rediculous it's just a sound card. if you install new hardware and the soundcard starts flipping out uninstall and reinstall and update.
output impedence is about 10ohms so it's best suited with headphones of at least 100 ohms (maybe not a con but something to note)
Other Thoughts: treble and mids are subdued with every headset i've used with this card takes a bit of eq tweaking but always turns out well
reinstillation of drivers is necessary if you change pcie slots
i've spilled coolant on it and it still works... granted my warranty now though.
