Buyer beware ! . 3rd party purchase

Penny Packer, Amazon
13 August 2014
  • Summary: Too good to be True First of all, I bough this from a 3rd party not Amazon or the manufacturer, I paid $21.00 Unit arrived in a plastic bag, not in factory packaging ,no warranty or setup paperwork, did have installation cd. for the THX not SBX as advertised. This is clearly a counterfeit or a reprocessed unit. Worked for about 30 minutes then died.. The moral of the story, kiddies is you get what you pay for, let the buyer beware!

Lots of digital noise and hiss. Distorts on low frequencies.

Venus in Furs, Amazon
28 December 2013
  • Summary: It's just too good to be true, you can't find a decent DAC/Sound Card at this price. I was skeptical but ultimately proven correct when I plugged in my headphones and found that there was immense amounts of noise and hiss at reasonable volume. I was almost going to simply bare with it but then I noticed that lower sound frequencies would get the entire thing bent out of shape and distort the audio signal.

Digital Interference

David W., Newegg
19 April 2012
  • Pros: It was easy to plug in and set up. I used it to be a second sound card for my laptop so I could send one audio feed to headphones (this card) and one to speakers.
  • Cons: I had to use it for headphones because there was so much digital interference noise it would have made the speakers sound terrible.

Bad Drivers - Made my Lappy Unstable

Leonard R., Newegg
11 April 2011
  • Summary: I had an X-Fi Go! Pro for a week and sent it back. I used it on my Alienware M17x R2 running Win7 64. Before installing it, the computer was rock-solid. After I installed it the computer would freeze and BSOD several times a day. I uninstalled the X-Fi, ran CCleaner, and the computer is back to its old stability.
  • Pros: Installed easily. Small, unobtrusive.
  • Cons: Bad drivers. Caused crashes.

Terrible build quality

Jonathan Pun, Amazon
22 December 2009
  • Summary: The initial sound quality was okay but there was always background static. Then, within minutes, it broke. The volume would consistently stay only at 100. Creative bundles fancy software and what not but that can't fix software.

Died after 9 Months of Use...

D.S., Amazon
22 December 2009
  • Summary: There's a long list of gripes I have about this product, but I'll shorten it to the main three: 1) Constant software issues. After a few connects or disconnects, I'd get a message saying the "Creative SB AVStream Monitoring Utility has stopped working". 2) Static whenever sound levels were low. I tested the device with two different headphones, each of which worked fine without static when plugged into other devices. 3) It died after only 9 months of use.
