Summary: Great low price for this kind of quality. Going to buy another one now.
Pros: Blows the Dell XPS M1730 onboard sound off the Moon! What a wonderful difference. No crackles, no noise. My music just took on a whole different realm of clear sound. With the Sony Stereo MDR 7506 Studio Monitor Headphones the bass is Thunderous and clear. Feel like it is coming from outside my environment. Worried that my neighbors would complain, LOL.
Summary: We purchase five of these sound cards to be used on our laptops docking stations and so far we haven't had a single problem with it. We have been using them for a couple of months and the sound quality and functionality has been excellent. I recommend this device if you need a portable sound card as well.
Summary: I would highly recommend this Sound Blaster card to anyone looking for an Improvement from their built-in Audio, or as a replacement for a broken sound card. I have had this for over a year and no issues have happened. Creative Labs knows how to make fantastic products, and this tiny and portable sound card is among their great line. -Final Rating: 5/5.
Pros: -Very Compact, as I can take it anywhere, and use it on any computer. -Sound Quality is excellent. I can hear a lot of things I normally couldn't without static sounds or issues. -Microphone Quality is brilliant. A lot of people can hear me in chat without any strange or static sounds. And I'm using this with a cheap $20 Logitech headset!
Cons: -There is only one con I can come up with, and I'm sure this doesn't happen to everyone who's owned this. The Audio seems barely off-sync sometimes in certain games. It is noticeable, but not too bothersome.
Summary: I bought this because I originally wanted superb sound. I read the information on this product and thought I should give it a try. But unfortunately, it doesn't sound any better than my two desktops, laptop, or Google nexus 7. I even downloaded the latest files. This product is meant for someone who lost their on board sound, in which case, it is a great product. But if you are looking for better sound, walk away real slow.
Summary: I was looking for a simple way to replace a malfunctioning on-board sound card from. This product was fairly simple to install and work with. Win 8.1 recognized it and it worked out of the box without disabling my on-board card. The tricky part was digging into the Creative Labs website to find the driver that worked with the card in order to access the software features (Win 8.1 was drivers only - no software interface) for Windows 8.1 64 bit.
Pros: I have an HP Envy 17 inch laptop that I purchased in July of 2013. I lost all sound in about September of 2013 and got the runaround from Best buy AND from HP. I spend $79.99 for an HP Techie to remotely connect to my computer and tell me that I had a hardware issue. I bought the Creative Go! in hopes that it would basically replace my internal sound card and it worked! Plugged it in to my USB port and plugged my headphones into it. Had sound immediately! I don't know...
Summary: I checked the website too and they clearly state "up to 24 bit fidelity"...
Pros: Already have this and it works the best of all USB cards. Comes with drivers, a nice stubby cable. Use it on my Asus1000p and I use it on my desktop too since my old sound card went belly up. Definitely better. It's portable and inexpensive..
Summary: I purchased this product to be able to use headphones while using my laptop to DJ with. Originally purchased with intention of using my laptop as the master audio output and the sound card for my headphones, but the sound is so much cleaner on the sound card that I switched them around, and now use the external as my master audio and the laptop output for my headphones.
Pros: Small device with clean sound. Does everything I need it to do.
