Summary: I bought this due to the defective sound component on a Gigabyte Motherboard (one channel didn't work at all). The sound and the control panel that comes with the companion software far exceeded my expectations as I chose this over a comparable Creative labs card.

Summary: Originally purchased this to track down an old Turtle Beach headphone issue. I thought my computer was at fault and returned this. Ultimately, I ended up re-purchasing this to drive some Sennheiser PC 350se headphones and with the right configuration it made for a very good purchase!
Summary: Bought this specifically to use with my antlion modmic 4.0 The difference between onboard audio and this is like night and day. The white noise was completely gone and I really like the surround sound simulation on my headphones.
FANTASTIC. Blows my onboard sound out of the galaxy

Summary: FANTASTIC. Blows my onboard sound out of the galaxy. The sound quality is EXTREMELY good and IMPRESSIVE. Especially if you have surround speakers and play video games. STRONGLY recommend this product. The software side of things is just a LITTLE finicky.

Summary: My onboard sound died and I needed a replacement, didn't want a new motherboard. What I really like: Simple installation Option to use either HD audio or AC97 for front sound port. HD works flawlessly.
Summary: I'll try and keep this short and sweet (like this sound card!) __Pros__ •Extremely cheap considering your features. •Built in headphone amp. (Power your high-end headphones) •Easy installation and placement. •Great sound in game and out! __Cons__ •Dated drivers. •No instructions on the card itself.
Summary: This thing is amazing. Bought it along side of the Audio Technica ATH-M50 headphones, and let me tell you, it's a great combo! What really does it for this sondcard is the excellent software package it ships with.
