Reviews and Problems with Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio

Sound card can only be installed with driver disk; online driver incapable
5 September 2012
Summary: You cannot find a working Creative driver online for this sound card so you must have the disk in order for the driver to install at all. I've scoured the internet and not even drivers from 2008 worked. I went to Frys to repurchase this card so that I had access to the disk.
Summary: It's a pretty decent sound card. I'm having troubles with Windows 7 x64, every now and then there's a "click" coming out from speakers. And sometimes when I use the optical line in with my Samsung Led TV it hangs out with a loud interference noise that won't go unless I restart my computer.
A great addition to your laptop; perfect for gamers and stereophiles!

Summary: This sound blaster allows for layered, full sound. Its accompanying software proffers user-friendly features for the sound's customization, as well as for recording input. The card's only downside is that it gets quite hot after a while, which may be problematic if your laptop is not well...
Summary: The product is amazing. The sound improved from a punch less bass and weak treble to a great sound. I also had issues with maximum sound with default (and realteck drivers). This problem also got solved. The Creative drivers are a bit of pain though.
Summary: I like the fact that it offers a solution to have digital ins and outs on the 3.5mm plug. I also have the riser which separates the 7.1 channels which is good for my Logitech speaker setup. The sound is stunning, Another great creative product.
Summary: Attributes: I am using this in a studio environment and it is a charm. Using VMWare I run older editing software and it presents no problem. Recording is being done in Windows 7 64bit and the result is very high quality.
