Worse than my broken motherboard ports.

Tasha Ard, Amazon
22 May 2014
  • 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.

Limited on Windows 7

El Indio de la Calle Ocho, Amazon
11 March 2013
  • 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.

Didn't fit the socket in my computer

bacchus, TigerDirect.com
5 March 2012
  • Summary: I guess I should have counted the pins in the only long socket in my computer but I didn't so this card didn't fit. Therefore, I really can't comment on how or if the card even worked.

Greedy business, Creative Labs

Virologist "too picky", Amazon
3 March 2012
  • 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?

Ugh

IMD, Amazon
31 January 2012
  • 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.

Broke after a few months of use

Blind Faith 99 "Blind Faith 99", Amazon
14 April 2011
  • 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.

Returned

Marvingee, Amazon
25 December 2009
  • 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.
