BEWARE! A COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME!

Creative
4 November 2009
  • Summary: By K. Hyder "AtTheOcean" I bought this card to take in digital audio from the TOSLINK port into a sound editing program.

BUYER BEWARE, SB1040 / 70SB104000000 - NOT AN X-FI CHISET CARD, DECEPTIVE MARKETING

Creative
10 May 2009
  • Summary: By InnerSquare "InnerSquare" Nice sound, optical in and out, cheap, BUT, as I later found out AFTER purchase, as I saw no disclaimer nor information indicating otherwise on any vendor sites nor the Creative Labs site, this is NOT a true X-FI chipset card, a cheap knock off branded as an X-FI.

No support from Creative for their own product

Mr. J. D. Rose "stunteddwarf", Amazon
6 July 2008
  • Summary: If you're running Windows 7, or are ever planning to upgrade to Windows 7, don't bother buying this card. This card uses Creative's infamous flexijacks, which work fine when the software that is meant to switch the jack's functions works, but under Windows 7 that software no longer works and...

Bug ridden mess

Dr. Michael J. Johnson "MJJ", Amazon
6 July 2008
  • Summary: I bought this as I needed better sound than my on board sound from my new motherboard. Modern boards seem to have adopted PCI- express as their main method of adding sound, graphics and wireless cards. Sadly PCI-ex seems ridden with bugs.
