Summary: I bought this sound card because my motherboard sound ports were not working properly. They'd cut out, or not work at all, but occasionally they'd be just fine. I figured I'd make it a non-issue and just get a sound card.
Summary: Found out hard way that the "Stereo Mix/What U hear" function is non-existent on Windows 7. Here is the Support page from Creative that explains what sound cards are: [...] Now I'm out the $8 return fee from Amazon. Sucks.
Summary: This product is still being sold by Creative Labs through Amazon, and this card or any other Audigy card has no service or tech support from CreativeLabs - it is stated "End of Life" in relation to service. Stay away from this company, they are just greedy - primitive business, isn't it?
Summary: I read the previous reviews, but since so many said it worked really well I went ahead and bought this to replace a broken sound card. Then, when I installed it, the search for a driver took a long time so I ran the disk. BIG mistake. HUGE.
Summary: I was very happy with this basic sound card until the color-coded plastic insulation for the sound-out jack broke into pieces and fell away. Not sure exactly how it happened. I do plug and unplug connectors into the jacks a lot so I guess the plastic insulation wasn't strong enough for that.
Summary: Although advertised to work with Windows 7, the software was a dismal failure. I only wish I had reviewed their forum before purchase. I was only one amongst many with the same experience. Creative has no tech support phone # that I could find on their website.
