It's a good product, and I haven't had any kind of ...

Another Customer, Amazon

  • 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.

Nice sound, be wary of the Asus software

Jeremy, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • 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.

Beware, rebates have ended long ago

Adan, Amazon
26 November 2013
  • 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.

Works great.

mike mullins, Amazon

  • Summary: Great card, particularly for the price. Delivered fast, worked almost immediately. Followed online instructions about not using drivers on the disk. Replaces my old Sound Blaster Xtreme Music and much prefer this one over that. Not a major change in sound but the softward and drivers are a Whole Lot Better. Goodbye forever Sound Blaster.

$26 and a bit more

Lloyd, Amazon
18 April 2013
  • Summary: For $26 dollars, I got what I ordered. First off, I bought the product used. The condition was good. Shipping was fast, and nothing was broken when I received the sound card. I've never had anything aside from onboard sound, so keep that in mind while reading this review. Onboard sound has served me well enough up till now. I decided to upgrade my headphones to something slightly closer to audiophile cans, and this card ended up falling into my cart one way or another.

User Review

10 June 2010
  • Summary: For a cheap card, this works well. It obviously isn't as loaded as higher end models, but it's better than on-board sound and a quick install. If you're not too picky, this is definitely worth a look.
  • Pros: Cheap, especially as open-box., Easy to install and work with., Some good concepts in the design/software.
  • Cons: Utilities are pretty limited., Not as many features as higher end cards, naturally., Some problem with card and front panel headphone jack required a reinstall.

Great card for the price

Paul Tucker "Peanuts", Amazon
15 March 2010
  • Summary: Easy installation. It is not a top of the line audio card. But for the price it performs very well. I am very satisfied. Would have given a 5 star rating, but occasionally the audio center stops working. But sound card continues to work without a hitch.

Color-coded outputs

  • Summary: I had been using a preamp to digitize my LP collection on an old computer that blew up. This card doesn't have the blue line input. It claims that the first input works for microphone or line in. It works for mic but not my preamp. It does a fine job playing cds and mp3 files and streaming from the web, but for the price, it's stupid not to have a blue line in jack that works like the standard.
