Default What do you think of Razer sound card and headset?

Well, what do you guys think? Right now these are on sale at NCIX for $130, I think the price is pretty alright considering it's a sound card and a headphone.

I guess my main usage is both gaming/watching movie, planning on getting windows 7 when it gets out. Are the Razers fine?

The headset is very meh at best. Not very comfortable, doesn't sound good, 5.1 is a gimmick in it, and it has a manufacturing problem. IF you get them (which I wouldn't really recommend.....) use some Locktite on the screw in the left side. I can almost guarantee it will fall out under normal use.

Really, I thought Razer would be better at quality control. Well then for ~100, what sound card should I get.
I'm thinking maybe the Forte or the Prelude (both Auzentech). Either will be fine in Win 7 right?

It's not QC, it's a flaw in the design. For the price, it is a pretty good deal. It still is a good sound card and a good headset for the price you're getting it at.
