Summary: The sound performance of this product is great especially for the price, but be prepared to spend a while installing it. I had some issues with the drivers for this card, be careful to install correctly and make sure to create a restore point before you install this. The first time the drivers didn't install correctly and I couldn't get the Control Panel to open at all... I ended up having to reinstall Windows.

Summary: It's a good product, and I haven't had any kind of issues with it. Performing is really good in movies, music and video games. Easy to install, but it's recommended to get the latest drivers from Asus official website.
Summary: Thus is a good sound card I use it for gaming and chats and it is a great sounding item with my turtle beach headphones. it's surround sound is awesome (7.1 ability). For the price you can't beat it. Love the mixer and the extras that come with mic set up. Yet to find a dislike.
Summary: Very good card. I would say that it is a noticeable upgrade from my old Sound Blaster Audigy 2. I did have some trouble with the installation, though. Uninstalling the Sound Blaster drivers was not enough - the Asus installer still kept insisting that it could not find the card. Eventually I resolved this by disabling the "AMD High Definition Audio Device" in my Device Manager.
Summary: Has decent connectivity for the price point, and full 192khz for output. Great high end card for non-recording oriented users. With a micro ATX mobo, I had already used my single PCIx1 slot for a wireless card, so finding a high quality PCI standard sound card was a huge plus. Those looking to do more recording should look into the DSX, which supports 192kHz input.
Summary: I use an Asus motherboard and Win 7 64. Removed original Realtek driver via uninstall program, shut down and installed card, installed latest Asus driver from web site and voila worked perfectly. The sound quality upgrade was amazing to say the least. The low frequency response was much cleaner, especially after setting the LF crossover to a proper setting. Very useful SW interface. Looking forward to coupling up with Razor Tiamat 7.1 headset.
Summary: I owned 3 devices from Asus and this sound card is very good at delivering high fidelity sounds, sometimes I get the feeling someone is my room when I am watching a movie or a you tube video; that is how good this sound card is, and the software offers many adjustments and choices to tune the sounds to your liking. Very happy with my Asus devices, I would definitely recommend this sound card.
Summary: Good quality sound card for the $$ however after the drivers and Asus software installed, my PC would hang during startup. I found that the issue was with the fact that the software installed both the 32bit and 64bit software which was causing a conflict. ( You get no options while it installs, it just does it) I had to open msconfig and disable the 32bit version from loading. Other than that, it works perfectly and produces great quality sound.
Summary: The drivers were installed on Win 7-64bit without any problems. The card sounds fine -- not much audible difference from Realtek HD though. Asus control panel is OK, switching between quantization frequencies is sweet and handy if you have both CD's and HD audio sources in your collection. Beware: Amazon writes that this card is subject to rebates from Asus, but the rebate period ended on Oct, 31 2013 and you'll have to pay a full proce for this purchase.
