Great product for the price, all rounder USB Sound Card
29 May 2014
Summary: Bought this because my laptop's sound card an offset on the input jack (stereo not centred). This USB sound card works great, clean sound with many options in the driver software to customize output and input. A wide range of equalizer presets are available.
Summary: I like tiny USB things. X-Fi Go Pro has satisfy my needs. I have an old core 2 duo laptop. The internal onboard sound is terrible so using X-Fi Go Pro improve the sound quality. Now, I can enjoy cinematic sound while watching movies. I'm not facing any sound problem just like other previous poster. A little tips for me, is using WASAPI mode for your player to make all sound output from your computer exclusively for this device.
Summary: The sound card in my laptop went out. I bought this to replace the internal sound card. I have owned several different Creative products and found them to be of good quality. I would rather have a smaller card but the sound on this is very good.
Excellent general purpose soundcard and great price! Highly recommended.

Summary: My on-board sound card quit and I purchased this as a quick fix. It works great! I read the reviews and it had great remarks and they were well-spoken and accurate. It works perfect without the additional software and Windows automatically finds the necessary drivers upon connecting it. This came with a short USB extension cable which is excellent to provide flexibility when using a headset and accidentally pulling the wire too tight.
Summary: Got this for my aging but still trusty Inspiron 1545 (bought in 2008) after the onboard sound card decided it was sufficiently aged and worn down enough to no longer want to work properly (one tiny vibration knocked the sound off completely). And you know what? Should have gotten this thing a long time ago, the sound off this USB card is fantastic and finally brings out the best to my Logitech Z506 speakers in clarity, in the bass response and the overall sound, not that...
Summary: This card is not for audiophiles. When playing songs abnormal noises, and some samples wheezing. I compares it with built in motherboard sound card and granny SoundBlaster Live! 5.1 (sb0100). Sounds like Live! but with noise and wheezing/rattling. If not that, then I would put the card five stars, now only three.
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...
