Not with this card, you don't get what you pay for!

Pat M., Newegg
6 July 2009
  • Summary: Replaced by the Xonar Essence STX PCIexpress... I cannot ethically give this card away!
  • Pros: This card is as messed up as Vista 64 bit was at its inception in 2007. Following the Creative driver for this card had my head spinning. Even in XP32 this card lacks functionality.
  • Cons: Hefty price tag for a driver nightmare! Looks and connectivity are deceiving and do not always equate to functionality! It is now a shameful paperweight...

  • Summary: do a search on google Creative X-FI + vista, and you will see a million horror stories, all the same. don't buy this

Creative X-fi Elite Pro doesn't work with Vista

Cody C., Newegg
7 June 2008
  • Summary: The external box is nice, a bit large though. Not to much of a problem if you have lots of stereo equipment like i do, would be nice if it worked though.
  • Pros: Lots of inputs and outputs and a good program.
  • Cons: Doesn't work with vista. Creative says it does but it doesn't. they have had lots of driver updates but none seem to work for vista. I have had this for about a year now waiting for a good driver but no luck so far. I will work for about 5 min, then it either stops all together or it will emit a ...

Do not buy

Thomas B., Newegg
25 November 2007
  • Summary: in xp i had to install drivers from safe mode(something i have never had to do on any hardware before), update my bios, use the last pci slot on my motherboard, and pray; Just to get the sound to work, and non of the commutation bay channels were accessible.
  • Pros: Would be great if it worked
  • Cons: Windows vista: no direct hardware processing, so if you have vista you can only do software decoding, ie no eax, hardware dolby/dts. Windows xp: massive driver problems general: right front channel cut out after plugging in the jack twice

Do Not Buy if you game!!!!

Warren H., Newegg
10 November 2007
  • Summary: I'm pulling it out and putting back in my 6 year old Live! card. This was a TERRIBLE upgrade.
  • Pros: Sounds great when playing mp3's, the headphone 3d is nice. Supplied a demo of FEAR
  • Cons: There is a known issue with this board and battlefield 2142 along with other games. It WILL BSOD you. Do not buy if you are a gamer. There is no known work around.
