Decent

Alexander A., Newegg
27 December 2014
  • Summary: Good for trying to upgrade from bad mobo sound. Not so good if you are looking for the best.
  • Pros: Great range and can deliver with the updated drivers It works well clear sound all setup works from stereo and headset modes to the 7.1 channels
  • Cons: Does not have the power to drive high impedance sound drivers for high end speakers, so you are going to have to spend more for that. Does not actually use True X-fi Suffered some interference on the low 15-45 Hz range. Could vary from card to card. mobo to mobo.

Nostalgic

Javier K., Newegg
5 August 2013
  • Summary: I can't believe they still sell this card for $59.99. Please spend the $20-40 more on the modern 24 bit sound cards. Heck when those cards are on a deal they can cost this much or less.
  • Pros: 24 bits Low profile Packs A Punch Improves Sound Tremendously
  • Cons: Driver confusing to install No clean install option (wipes out old sound card leftovers completely) Not the best 24 bit sound

Great Sound Card

Jonathan W., Newegg
30 June 2012
  • Summary: I love Creative Labs and use a headset from them too.
  • Pros: Great HD sound quality and easy to install in my computer. A lot of people claim "It fried my mother board" that's because they are insolents and can't put a simple sound card into the correct slot. Picks up microphones great and beautiful 3D sound for gaming and music.
  • Cons: Had to Google where to put my "Line In" chord, but that took like 15 seconds.

Regarding the Sound Volume changes

Harry R., Newegg
3 January 2012
  • Summary: I was having similar trouble with several different cards including this one, but I think I found the problem for those of you still experiencing the volume changing for no apparent reason.
  • Pros: Great card for setting up systems that are going to be used by every day people as well as Music computers.
  • Cons: Other then what is stated below I was finally able to get it working.

Good...

  • Pros: A massive upgrade from my bad onboard Asus sound. I don't understand the bad reviews. It's good for the price and PCI-e is a plus.
  • Cons: Software is poorly designed - EQ woud have been nice.

Audigy 2 ZS with X-Fi Software

Ronald S., Newegg
22 December 2010
  • Summary: I'm not really disappointed with this product... Knowing that the quality of the hardware is exactly like an Audigy 2 ZS, which isn't a bad sound card at all, I just felt that if you are going to give this product the title of X-Fi, you might as well use the technology hardware wise and not just...
  • Pros: + Excellent Sound Quality (Music, Movies, and Gaming) + EAX Advance HD in Gaming + ASIO Support for low latency recording + PCI-E 1x + HD Audio Front Panel Support + Hardware Acceleration + 7.1 Surround Sound Support + Plenty of Ports (Optical, SPDIF, etc...) + Installs Automatically using Window...
  • Cons: - An Audigy 2 ZS emulating X-Fi technology through software - No X-Ram for added performance

Decent Audio Output

Frederick S., Newegg
30 November 2010
  • Summary: I have to say the card is great if your not looking to spend alot. My main goal was to find a sound card that worked out of the box For Ubuntu. I hooked the card up and only change that had to be made was selecting the card under sound preferences.
  • Pros: This card came with front panel port as well as aux. Worked out of the box for Ubuntu 9.10. Came with nice sticker..lol
  • Cons: Sound is not top end, mid-range if anything. Wish it had some RCA outputs. Front panel port sits farther into the card..towards the middle. This is not a huge deal, but was a pain due to that fact i had to mount it upside down.
