No, No oooh sound just SUS , not Sue-s like you are saying Zeus

Like Eh..Zeus WAZZAPPP!

Its Ace-us

i don't care if Jerry Shen tells me I'm wrong, He's wrong!

Don't get confused by accents like you do with Caribbean

Americans pronounce Caribbean like people from the Caribbean say it but they have an accent,
Its like you're are putting on a fake accent when you say Caribbean!

If you say it the English way in a Jamaican accent that's how you say it apart from the accent.

Call any of the numbers on this page and you can hear the official company pronunciation.

It's a made up word so you say it the way they say it. End of discussion.

I know I'm not a regular poster here, so you guys are probably going to dismiss this (thought I have been reading this site and forums for years), but they've been pronouncing their name this way (eh- Soos, or however you want to write it) since at least 1997 or 98. I had a couple of their motherboards go bad back in the day (think Pentium II), and that's how the guy on the customer service line pronounced it.

So is that like a opposite of a portmanteau? Instead of putting two words together, you split a word in half? It's a cool piece of trivia, regardless.
