Summary: This card is good for windows 7, 8 channels, good sample rate, drivers are awesome. But.... Card does NOT have front panel connector, it's my fault because I didn't get the info first but I thought all cards had it (I was young and foolish back then)... I use my front jacks heavily so it was a turn down. I Couldn't get it to work fully in Debian Linux, after a month of researching (and reinstalling) I got bored and stop trying.
Summary: I bought this to go with my new 5.1 surround sound.. but.. The cd that comes with it is more than useless.. It will actually waste your time because it's not going to work (at least not on windows 7). Then when I finally downloaded the drivers from the internet (their official website), I had sound, but still most of my applications for the sound card did not function.
Summary: No matter how, or what I do; this sound card will not work with windows 7 32 bit. I have tried the drivers recommended, but nothing seems to work. I have the card installed, but that is all I can say about it. Am I unhappy with it....YES.....
Summary: I followed the advice of another reviewer - I installed the card and expected WIndows to find drivers. Win-7 (32bit) did not recognize the card as anything. It did not look for drivers. So, I tried the install disk. It crashed my system - badly. Took some extreme measures just to make my system start. When it did, a message said take the new unknown device out of the computer. Bottom line... It does not seem to me it is compatible with Win-7.
Summary: Contrary to what it says on the packaging, it does not work well with VISTA. In fact if you spend enough time on Creatives website and on other forums you'll find that many of their products don't work well with VISTA. The biggest issue I had was that it lacked a very basic feature: Microphone Boost. Without such a feature you cannot use your mic for online gaming. Simply maxing the mic outbound volume isn't enough..
Summary: Bought this to replace a dead MB audio on a P4HT, with XPproSP3, and NERO 6, the reboots started as soon as system booted up. Replaced this card with a $10 card. That has been no problem for over a month now. Problem repeated on another PC. Given the need for an additional part for multiple inputs we can not recomend this card.
Summary: el equipo esta en buenas condiciones y es lo mismo que vi en la imagen antes de comprarlo pero aun no he podido utilizarlo en su totalidad por que es muy dificil de configurar en la pc y aun no le he dado el uso para el cual lo he comprado, los drivers son extremadamente dificil de conseguir, la verdad no recomiendo este equipo para aguien que no sea capaz de pasar horas y horas buscando el buen funcionamiento de este.
