Buggy on Linux
26 July 2013
Summary: Crashes the linux driver which is the reason I bought the card since it had ALSA linux driver support. Tried it with Debian, Ubuntu, and Linux Mint. Had an old one that I thought was just defective before buying this one, both didn't work with linux. Avoid this card if you want it to work in Linux.
Summary: This product is Greta and cheap for solo or rpg singe player games, but take it online in game like ventrillo or Gamespy , o boy , this one does not even work, stay with the motherboard one for that :)
Summary: If you need to replace your on-board audio but don't need all of the extra features of a new sound card then this is the card for you. At such a low price it can easily replace the even the best on-board audio. Those with a budget can get good quality 7.1 with this card.
Pros: Much better than on-board audio and it's 7.1. Very good price for performance.
Cons: Does not have the features of a card double/triple the cost.
Summary: This is a no-frills, entry-level sound card and that is perfect for me. I do not want surround sound from my PC. I was perfectly happy with the my on-board audio from my MSI mobo until I discovered that the line-in input was dead in the water.
Excerpt: The Creative website advertised this product as supporting Win2k, BUT niether the driver nor applications on the installation CD support Win2k. I have spent hours on at Creative's customer support technical website discovering the compatable driver and supported applications, and waited through...
Excerpt: I bought this card about 4 years ago, to replace my ancient SB AWE 64. I have a mini studio setup and use Cubase and Cakewalk to lay down my tracks. I plumped for the SB Audigy Platinum as it was the best consumer card available at the time.
Excerpt: I bought the sound card about a year ago for £120, although now these things are pennies, with all the improved versions being released. Minimum specs are: · Processor: Genuine Intel® Pentium® II, Celeron 350MHZ, AMD-K6® 450MHz or faster · Motherboard: Intel®, AMD® or 100% compatible · System RAM:...
Pros: Great features, can pick one up very cheap now !
Cons: if your after a card to record music . . . stay well away !
