The setup took longer than I feel like it should have

  • Summary: This card has been very difficult to deal with. I bought it for my Razer Tiamat 7.1 headset. The setup took longer than I feel like it should have. The ports don't come color coded, so if you aren't familiar with what color is what output, you'll have to look online.

  • Summary: Bought this to replace my Creative based Auzentech X-Fi Forte. Connections and installation was easy, plugged the front panels HD audio without hassle. Sound quality, it depend which use you intend to do. I find the audio different on some outputs.
  • Pros: - easy to install, - good sound overall
  • Cons: - power cable, - bad software

  • Summary: So this card gives me sort of mixed feelings. On the one hand the sound quality is amazing. There's no arguing that. The only problem is that the power connection on it seems to be quite finnicky.
  • Pros: Very good sound quality, and good driver utility
  • Cons: Constant problems with power

Like Milk, it soured over time

  • Summary: The card is a solid card, I'll give it that. But like many Asus products I've used in the past, after a bit of use, I began to have issues with it. As of today, for some reason, my front right speaker has almost no volume.

  • Summary: This is a good sound and doesnt cost as much as other ones I saw. But still good. Only $90, a bit too much for me, but not too bad.
  • Pros: Great Sound. Easy.
  • Cons: a bit pricy.

  • Summary: The performance of this card is definitely superb to any onboard card. Its low profile also means airflow can still be kept at a good level. Here's the bad part... Plugged the card in, downloaded the Windows 7 drivers beforehand.
  • Pros: - Sound is much more clearer than onboard, - Low Profile, - Price (can find one for $70 after MIR)
  • Cons: - Drivers for Windows 7 are horrible, - Not colour coded

  • Summary: An upgrade to onboard sound, certainly. A revolution in acoustical control? Big no. Most of the software features are superfluous and confusing and usually make the sound worse - the instructions are inadequate as well.
  • Pros: # A truer range and reproduction of sound than my realtek onboard.
  • Cons: # Terrible software, which regrettably needs to be used., # Dolby Headphone is disappointing., # S/PDIF doesn't have its own jack., # Front panel options still don't produce clear sound.

  • Summary: Good quality sound for the price if you can PM.Low profile and something different and better that any Creative XFI that i have before.
  • Pros: low profile,with lastest drivers and patch working great for me in both Win7 and Vista64.
  • Cons: The plug's arent colored , 4pin mini molex floppy power connector was broken and i lose at least 1h to changing drivers,patches and diff windows to find that was a problem.(open box item- i know i take the risk but ncix should test the card before sell it again!

  • Summary: There are three reasons of why I bought this card: 1. Reviews overall stated it was very good, 2. It emulates effects up to EAX 5.0 just as if it was a Creative product and 3. it's not a Creative product. The thing is...

  • Summary: This card would be well suited to a media pc, or a casual/family pc. It is inexpensive, well performing, and made of good parts. However, the driver support for video games is terrible, and asus doesn't seem to care.
  • Pros: Good price point. Quality construction. Great sound quality.
  • Cons: Terrible game support. If you are a PC gamer, do not buy this card. Buy a creative X-fi and be happy that you can play all the games you want.
