Summary: This card is now officially the oldest hardware I've been actively using! :)
Pros: Bought mine here in 2007 and my configurations changed several times around it but this card stayed. My current machine is an X79 - Xeon with Windows 10 and I have no problems at all. I also used it under Vista, W7 and W8.1 as well and never had any issues with it. Although finding the correct dr...
Cons: Nothing serious. Perhaps the driver support could be better...
Pros: This was the first purchase I ever made online, and my first PC part purchase. I got this back in 2008 and its still going strong today. I still use it in my rig now. Still produces the best sound quality i've ever heard from anything. The specs on this compared to anything out there today either...
Summary: Everything i had hoped for, headphone clarity is amazing i use an old school prologic set up. no center and it works great. looking forward to a bigger system, but i need more room.
Pros: The Sound quality is great, the options for bringing sound in and bringing sound out are absolutely awesome. Most of the connections are still used to this very day. MIDI in and OUT are used in recording, having a miked pre-amp for a guitar or bass is phenomenal. For a small time studio user this...
Cons: My remote won't work. I bought this used a few months ago and still have found no way to get it to work. Any ideas would be great.
Summary: This card is a great alternative to a newer card if you're on a tight budget, and it is capable of producing quality audio to supply most any headphones or speaker systems.
Pros: I bought this card second-hand off a guy that had owned it since 2009, and I am amazed at the power of this card. It is capable of handling the same 24 bit 96 KHz sound that the modern $150 Creative cards can handle. Creative is still releasing driver updates for this card, and I am currently usi...
Cons: The styling on this card isn't as nice as some of the newer models. There's no HD AUDIO pins for the front headphone and microphone panel on my case, only the proprietary Creative interface.
Summary: I've not had one driver problem or other problem which can be attributed to the soundcard. A little research WILL get you to the Creative website where they definately have the W7 64-bit drivers.
Pros: Crisp, clear, sound that is boosted way beyond the audibility of onboard sound. Difference is like Mojave Desert versus Antarctica! Drivers for W7 64 bit work perfectly! It's lasted 3 years. It's got to last several more, because I believe it may be the last soundcard that actually processed all ...
Summary: I've owned an older model of Sound Blaster and it worked really well in Windowx XP after they straightened out their driver / software issues. Had to upgraded to this card for Win 7 compatability. Maybe this card will be good in a few years.
Pros: Outputs good and strong sound when gaming or listening to music.
Cons: Unable to get audio in feature to work so I can play my iPad through my PC speakers. Something so simple got me really frustrated and I was never able to get this to work. I had other issues with my headset and mic configuration.
