Conclusion: Creative has done a commendable job of converting its popular Audigy 2 ZS high-end sound card into a notebook-ready PC Card sound board. This Sound Blaster doesn't offer all the connectivity options of its PCI siblings, but it does come remarkably close to matching their superb sonics and rich feature sets.
Pros: PC Card form adds high-quality audio to notebook PCs. Enormous feature set, including 7.1-channel output. Low noise levels and 192-kHz DVD-Audio playback.
Cons: Lacks FireWire ports. No multichannel recording.
