Has anyone ever heard of this?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am looking into buying a better sound card than my SB Live! and came across this Razer Barracuda AC-1. It normally goes for $100 anywhere else, so I would imagine $50 bucks to be a good deal. I really don't have a ton of experience with sound cards.

Question is, has anyone ever heard of this company or have had any experience with this card? I am only looking for one to play music over a plain old 2+1 speaker system and for some gaming. It doesn't have to be spectacular.

Don't know about that particular model, but i hear the Razor Barracuda's are ok but a little expensive usually for what they offer. Creative X-Fi is your best bet in my opinion as they are a tad more superior. But the deal you have is worth the purchase.

For $55, it's a pretty good deal. Razer mostly makes input equipment (mice, keyboards, etc), and the sound card is ok. Better for gaming than for music, but they rip you on the normal pricing.

My thoughts exactly. They have really good positional audio, better than onboard quality, and integrate very well with their headset counterpart. For the normal price of $150, not worth it. For $55, though, they are pretty much the best you can get in that price range.

I agree, for $55 you can't go wrong.

Dammit. They sold out before I could get a chance to buy one.
As they say, you snooze, you lose.
