Works Great with Windows 8
3 weeks ago
Summary: I have a basic business laptop with Win 8 and a 10" tablet with Win 8.1 this device loads and works on both. Plug in the USB and it becomes the default sound card. If replacing a dead sound chip then you're ready to go. Load the software and you have all the goodies. Record what- you-hear and mix in microphone effects. Have fun on Skype with VoiceFX. For both performance and price I recommend giving it a try.
Summary: the onbaord audio of my htpc motherboard died so rather than buy internal sound card or replace the MB altogether i decided to get this. For $30 this is a pretty good sound card. works well with windows 7. This will do the trick until i get a new HTPC altogether.
Pros: small, USB sound
Cons: software required a couple installation attempts
Summary: Works perfect for me, I have an issue with it only when I use it whith my Dj software Virtual Dj if I install the software that comes with the card, I use it as my CUE, when the software is installed I get a huge delay between the music I am programing vs the music I am listening on the cue. oteher than that supperb!
Works great, but needs an external volume controller
1 June 2013
Summary: The sound quality is superb and a noticeable improvement over my on board sound, but as some other reviewers have mentioned, there is a constant hiss when used with low impedance devices and this is the only reason I did not rate 5 stars. This can be easily fixed however with an in-line volume controller (just turn the volume up in your computer and the volume down on the in-line controller). Overall, great product.
Summary: My laptop's sound card is no longer working. Creative Sound blaster is an excellent external sound card. I can now connect headphones and speakers to my Laptop. The only issue I have is that the Software CD provided with device did not get recognized by the drive. Luckily, Windows looked up the device software online and installed the relevant software and I was able to use the device. Overall a Good device.
Summary: It works however it doesn't have a karaoke player which I wanted but your regular x fi go was out of stock so I purchased this thinking it had a karaoke player too. My x fi go that I had feel completely apart. it looked as though someone just broke it up.
