BXBoards heeft een Vortex II shoutout gepost, met een vergelijking van de Diamond Monster Sound MX300, Xitel Storm Platinum en Turtle Beach Montego II Quadzilla. Van deze drie kaarten werden de Storm en Turtle Beach als beste bevonden:
The Xitel card has a digital (coaxial) connector, so transfering digital sound will not be a problem at all (i.e. no quality degradation). The headphones are a very novel idea, and are excellent overall. The bass returns on these headphones are amazing, and coupled with the force feedback it provides a somewhat unique experience. If you are the hardcore gamer, than this is the primary choice- keep in mind the Quadzilla is hot on its feet and you would not be disappointed with either.
The Montego II Quadzilla is a unique soundcard as it has a host of great features for the audio enthusiast. This card is presently in my gaming system and I am very satisfied with the excellent drivers and other audio programs that Voyetra Turtle Beach provided with the card. I have fooled around with some of the audio programs and would like to say that dabbling with these programs has started a new audio interest for me. This card comes with oodles of software, and a lot of it can be put to good use, so look this way for a great solid card with lots of cool software. I would like to add that this is the only card in this shootout with an S/PDIF connector as part of the package, so higher quality sound could be yours with this card.
