Extreme Hardware heeft een review gepost van de Terratec Xlerate Pro. Deze geluidskaart heeft net zoals de Diamond MX300, Xitel Storm Platinum en Turtle Beach Montego II een Aureal Vortex II processor:
With a suggested price of $99.95, the Xlerate Pro is priced in line with competing Vortex 2 cards as well as the SoundBlaster Live! Value Edition. However, unlike competing Vortex 2 cards, no software bundle is included, which places the Xlerate Pro behind the pack a little. Compared to the Monster Sound MX300, it doesnít have the MX300ís strong software bundle, but it does have a digital output port. Compared to the Xitel Storm Platinum, it is practically identical, but costs $20 more. On the whole, $99 is a good price for the Terratec Xlerate Pro. Compared to similar sound cards however, the Xlerate Pro seems a little expensive.
