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. After complaining directly to Creative, I was told to go to their product page where they have "Detailed instructions on how to fix the BSoD with their software" and was met with the dumbest back-and-forth instructions that I...
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 products (though, thanks to some googling, I was able to finagle my computer settings to get it installed).
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. I think I might try it one more time and if it doesn't work then it's going on ebay.
Out dated hardware and software dispite the so called "Windows 8 Ready" stamp

Summary: I have returned this card, I had it for 3 weeks and it never worked properly with windows 8 despite trying numerous drivers etc. I will admit that It sounds great once its working but it never ran smooth. when I turned on my computer I NEVER had sound till I switched modes, and the whole concept of switching between 3 modes can be a pain in the ass to get working properly with games or music.
Summary: If you are thinking of buying this card you might want to look closely at its abilities. The card is one of the most exspensive on the market but its stereo output only so if you have a 5.1 speaker system you will not get the front rear control, the software that should give this control has not affect so pretty useless. The software installed with the card did not work with Power DVD 10 Ultra and it would not let Power DVD open.
Summary: Basically i bought this to upgrade my XtremeGamer sound card and its nothing compared to that, few Things you cannot do and thats use both front panel and speakers at the same time unless u use a audio splitter and if u use a headset make sure its compatable with the card because you will get bad high pitches sounds constantly even if you have a sound blaster headset you better check, this device is very Prone to picking up interference from my Graphics card, basically...
Excerpt: Купил, намучался с установкой, отдал назад на следующий день, так и не услышав ни звука. Добавил 1300 рублей, взял Infrasonic Amon, он поставился без проблем. Вполне доволен характеристиками, звуком, качеством изготовления.
Pros: Не было возможности их найти. Впрочем, упаковка вполне красивая.
Cons: Не предусмотрена работа с 32-разрядной WIN ХР. Берешь в руки - слишком легкая, корпус пластиковый, выглядит дешего.
Excerpt: Позарился и купил Creative X-Fi HD на замену Creative X-Fi Xtreme Audio (кстате неплохая звучка). Пользовался 1 день. Облазил все настройки, перепробовал несколько версий драйверов в итоге поменял на другую. Опишу примерно её звучание. В общем неплохие бысы, достаточно упругие (думаю это единственный плюс), средние провалены, что-то невнятное звучит. Высокие шипящие, неразборчивые, нет в них кристальности.
Pros: Подключение через USB. Фронтальный выход и вход, регулировка программной громкости спереди.
Cons: Их куча: Беспонтовые драйвера. Нет очень нужного эквалайзера, а програмная обработка, мягко говоря хреновая. Звук с теми драйверами, что предлагает разработчик ужасен.
