DO NOT BUY!!!

Robert J. Backlund, Amazon

  • Summary: The drivers for this sound card do not work correctly! I have spent several hours and several attempts with Asus support trying to get this OVER PRICED piece of junk working. You would think that a 200 dollar sound card would be fantastic, well the only thing fantastic about this sound card is it is a royal pain in the A@#. After installing this sound card several games would no longer even run, they would crash when trying to launch.

Almost a year later and the only drivers that work are still in beta

  • Summary: Title says it all; Driver features are completely bare bones, and still very buggy. There has been zero communication from ASUS on driver development, despite many users having trouble with the microphone input, 5.1 output and SDIF. I would definitely NOT recommend this card to anyone.

Drivers cripple the card.

Ben Bruce, Amazon

  • Summary: ASUS completely dropped the ball on this one. Both the full-release and beta drivers available for this card have the same huge problems: *Card can't output sound to headphones and speakers simultaneously, and switching back and forth in the software is a huge pain. *Card has compatibility issues with some software (Doesn't allow sound output in Spotify, for example).

It's amazing, when it works

  • Summary: I'm just going to put the big flaw with this card right up front. The drivers don't work with games that use Punkbuster. It's a known issue. It wouldn't be so bad if there were just sound problems, but they cause BSODs, the game to lock up on a frozen screen, etc. I do not understand how it is that Asus can get away with branding a product as a "republic of gamers" soundcard, when it has such glaring issues with games.

  • Summary: Driver support for this card is far beyond terrible, look at the dates for how regular updates are released and the problems others are having. You have been warned.

Do not buy this

S. Parmenter "Sam", Amazon

  • Summary: I buy ASUS notherboards because they reliable and come with the appropriate software. The Phoebus is good hardware with one critical exception - the optical output jack and the 7.1 analogue side speaker jack are one and the same jack. So if you have a 7.1 speaker setup, as I do, and wish to use the digital output as well, as I do, WIHTOUT messing around pulling connectors in and out then you are out of luck. The software.

  • Excerpt: Постоянные зависания(притормаживание и потеря звука) при работе в Eclipse. Скорее всего все там написано на Java Script или Java. И когда работает JRE то происходят сбои.
  • Pros: + Подсветка портов(в темноте когда вставляешь в карту провода очень удобно)
  • Cons: - не все типы наушников с mini jack 3.5 работают(нет контакта) - ошибки драйвера при воспроизведении некоторых форматов(двойное эхо) - не подкрашены входы(они все золотистые, без инструкции в выключенном состоянии не понять) - вылетают программы из-за глючного драйвера - Регулировка громкости только для наушников, нужно чтобы работала когда и наушники не подключены

  • Excerpt: ASUS сильно лажанула с этой моделью, запоров ее на железном уровне. При этом со стороны компании проблема полностью игнорируется. Дело в том, что микрофон получает наводку от видеокарты, и во время игры все слышат тарахтение трактора, с которым нельзя побороться. На форуме ASUS об этой проблеме много пишут, но официальной реакции нет. Кто может, тот сразу возвращает. В следующий раз 10 раз подумаю, прежде чем покупать продукцию данной компании.
  • Pros: Хороший звук в наушниках, усилитель
  • Cons: Жуткие помехи на микрофоне

  • Excerpt: Звук только в музыки хороший, в играх полная лажа поверьте ! Была карта ASUS DG за тысячу. Звук в играх просто улет, взрывы и эффекты, стрельба все объемно. В этой карте этого нет, звук какой то плоский, таких денег не стоит. Советую её не брать, деньги на ветер.Лучше присмотреться к другой.Карта просто какой то ужас, 11 месяцев танцы с бубном вскоре перестала работать. Драйверы плохие, постоянно вылеты, зависания, комп. Постоянно приходится перегружать.
  • Pros: Их нет одни проблемы.
  • Cons: Постояно глючит.
