WickedPC plant de laatste tijd aan de lopende ban reviews. Vandaag hebben ze er eentje van de Diamond Monster Sound MX300. Uiteraard wordt dan meteen de vergelijking gemaakt met de SBLive, zo ook bij WickedPC:
I know after posting this review to Wicked PC, everyone will be asking me "What card should I buy? The Live or the MX300?" The answer isn't that easy though, as it depends on what you want to do with the card. For quick and dirty support, the MX300 proves to be king. If you like to tweak every game you own to the max, then the Live is probably a better choice. Neither card is better. The decision should come down to cost, support, bundle, and company reputation. You should be the judge on that part based upon experience. The MX300 is a superb choice for a new sound card, even if all you do is use a word processor. The card is clean, fluid, and sounds very crisp. One advantage to it over other cards (except the Live) is that it's PCI. A PCI sound card uses less CPU power than an ISA one (and can typically generate 2-3 more frames per second in games). All in all, thumbs up on the MX300.
