Software causes BSoD and system lockout

Summary: I bought this to go with my nice new pair of audio-technica headphones. However, installing the device's software caused my PC to blue screen, and completely lock me out of my PC. Booting into safemode and removing the driver was the only option.
Pros: Very sleek device, has all the features I needed and sounds pretty good.
Cons: Worked great for 1 day then was dead the next time I turned it on. Nothing but garbled static coming from headphones or speakers. No returns accepted so I have to wait 2-3 weeks for a replacement that may or may not work. Great, thanks.
Broke after four months and wasn't even that great when it was working

Summary: I'm a transcriptionist, and I bought this to use with my headphones for work. I was hoping to get better audio so that I could understand recordings that were poorer quality. First off, installation was a headache, but that's because I have a Mac and this is not technically compatible with Apple...
Cons: DOA...how can a refurbished item be DOA. If a product is recertified it would have to be tested How can this be. I guess they dont care about the consumer. I last bought a soundblaster back when i had windows 3.1 and it was a real difficult card to configure, you would think after 15 or so years ...
Excerpt: I put this in and it worked great. Then suddenly it stoped working. I tried updating the software and many other things, but it just never came back to me. I did get some after market drives to work, but even they got blown away some times so I gave up.
Pros: Small compact, usb power, adequate inputs and outputs, control software fine.
Cons: Not acceptable for the mobile dj b/c the outputs are not loud enough to give any bass. I have a 250W amp and tried to drive my powered 15" subwoofer. Woefully underpowered, I thought my powered subwoofer had went bad until I plugged my cd player into the same inputs as the sound card. The sound c...
Summary: I'm inclined to believe Creative deliberately made their labeling confusing, as the rest of their X-Fi products have multi channel support. I suspended my policy of never buying Creative products due to their dubious drivers, and this is what I get..
Pros: It has a high SNR, 114dB. That's pretty good.
Cons: Only supports 2.1 audio. Seriously? Not stated on the box anywhere. It's going back to the store immediately, because a $100 2.1 channel sound card is so far away from what I wanted it's not even funny.
Summary: It came it and tried to put my Steelseris headset in the front outputs and there was absolutely nothing there! There were holes but nothing for it to get plugged into like what the hell is up with that? So i returned this.
Pros: -Ok sound for money -Better than nothing -works on multiple devices such as home theater
Cons: -horrible drivers -not as great sound for what it is -no inputs for USB mics - I GOT THIS WITH NO FRONT OUTPUTS ?????
