more than a year

Mr. C., Newegg
9 January 2016
  • Summary: the low profile bracket & scews could be package better.... and a mounting screw should be included. Many cases have twist out shields over the expansion slots. Granted these are cheap cases, but not including a screw with a card that will need one... it just stinks of cheap.
  • Pros: optical pass thru.. toslink, the digital output to a receiver that lets us feed the big speakers and sub woofer. A reasonably priced card which installed easily. The software went in smooth as silk, and it's been in use for more than a year without a hickup. Bought another dg and a dgx for my oth...
  • Cons: The headphone amps are fine for entry level sets. If you're a serious gamer with premo head gear... this card is a bit weak.... or so my boy tells me. When the optical cable is installed, be sure to open the software and change the settings... it doesn't sense the connection and change settings.....

Mainboard out, PCI in: Let the Music Play

Ricardo W., Newegg
6 January 2016
  • Summary: I do not have hardware for SPDIF thus I can't actually test that (some people seem to have issues with optical out.) Drivers are running on Windows 10, latest release from website. 10/28/2015 [IIRC] Listening through a discounted (though have a number of speakers & subs at disposal) FatBoy headphone...
  • Pros: -Audio fidelity (via headphones to say the least) is improved -Simple installation -*Drivers are functioning as intended
  • Cons: -Apparently I plugged the headphones too far in and it completely eliminated stereo, spent about hour trying to figure out what went wrong, including driver reinstall. -Couldn't get the front panel to work (plugged the HD AUDIO to the right spot supposedly) needless to say ended up disabling onbo...

channels overlap

Anonymous, Newegg
15 November 2015
  • Summary: I owned this for a few months. Then the speaker channels started overlapping. It would randomly play the rear speaker signal on the front speakers, and other way around. Also static randomly starts and stops on random speaker channels.
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: sound channels overlap. static on the rear speakers.

RIP

Leticia N., Newegg
21 October 2015
  • Summary: Wish it could've lived more than 8 months, the life of my card was possibly due to it being a refurb but nonetheless it leaves a bad after taste in my mouth that a product so highly regarded could died on me out of nowhere.
  • Pros: - Good noise suppression - Decent microphone jack for the price - Powers up semi-beefy headphones - Hassle-free software (in my opinion) - Crisp, clean sound This thing worked wonders for me before it died, I was able to listen to my music with more in-depth clean sounds than my motherboard could...
  • Cons: - Died after 8 months of use - Drivers could be a pain - Doesn't have noise suppression - White noise is audible My garbage audio chip on my motherboard had noise suppression abilities in its software, I don't understand how this doesn't have it. Perhaps it's my microphone, the way I plugged it i...

great card for price

Anonymous, Newegg
11 September 2015
  • Pros: sound is great setup was easy able to rout the sound hookups in front of case to card.
  • Cons: the system setup was a little tricky. however this was due to me not understanding some of the software so it does not count against the product. just read up on how to setup this card and trouble shoot. for the money it is worth the patience. goto the website for the drivers as you will need the...
