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.
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.
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
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.
Summary: just looken upgrade to pci-e maybe the gamer
Pros: I got this card for 60$ 3 years ago, And felt it was good buy. I'VE been using it all this time for gaming and never had a problems, others have mentioned. yes the card needs tweaking now and than, but that's up to you to figure out what going, just disable your digital audio that fixes most prob...
