Summary: been using this for years to power my HD570 which is like 10 years old, there is some driver conflict when using with win7, i just use an aftermarket driver. overall great sound for this price
Summary: I bought this sound card to replace a broken on-board sound card and it does the job very well. I can't say much about the sound quality since I have cheap speakers but it is at least as good as in on-board one. It's a great 7.1 card for people on a budget.
Summary: Good upgrade from on-board analogue sound. It's pretty cheap, so it fit the budget for a budget build. The computer it is installed on will only be used for general internet use, so it's not like top notch sound was required.
Summary: I have nothing to say about this , i just bought it , REALLY exited to try it out since my audio output doesnt work on my Mobo, just the USB.. i think that soundblaster i well known for quality sound , You just cant miss it , good buy at my eyes.. Sorry for my lack of English mastering.. :D
Summary: This was a great sound card for the price. The quality was reasonable. However, I had to return it because it didn't have connectors front-panel audio ports. I use headphones and mics all the time, so it is necessary for me that the jacks on the front of my box work.
Pros: Great linux compatibility (Ubuntu 10.04), Easy to install
Cons: No connector included for front-panel audio ports
Summary: By W. Xu The sound card runs perfectly on Windows 7 64bit system. It has much better sound quality than onboard chips such as Realtek ALC 66x and 88x series. If you have a micro motherboard and a thick graphic card (GTX 460 or above), this PCI sound card will be a good choice since there may not be...
Summary: I think the EAX and the gaming features are ideal with this soundcard. I really didn't notice a huge leap between this an the ALC889 chipset. This is best suited for gamers who want a cheap option.
