    Asus is pronounced A-soos, read that in an article before.
    Thinking PNY is just the initials, not a word.
     
    ShadowFold says thanks.

    Yeah I used to call it A-suhs, which I still think sounds better but when I called tech support I found out it was A-soos. PNY is P-N-Y.
     
    ShadowFold says thanks.

    The way the tech support pronounces it isn't the right way per se. For instance we have several Chevrolet commercials on TV here, they pronounce it differently in each, very odd.
