Premium build quality/components, lacking proper Win 7 support but works...
20 September 2011
Summary: Very good product, high end sound however Creative does not provide original application support on Windows environments released after XP... Must use 3rd party modded drivers for Windows 7 x64 to get most bundled application software working.
Excerpt: The sound is fine, but the price is still high, especially Elite-Pro's. Also UK pricing seems to be unreasonably high at £190-220 - I am comparing this with internet shops in Poland, where you can get new E-Pro for £161 (Pixmania.com) and still VAT is 4.5% higher in Poland!
Summary: Well like it was said above lots and lots of ports, lots of features, web driver upgrade. I've upgraded after 6 years of Audigy 2 Platinum Ex and the improvement was pretty huge. I am using Win XP sp3 and the installation was faultless.
Excerpt: Ease of install This is perhaps the best bit of all, installing the card is simple to a compatent user. It takes a while with all cables, and feeding them where you want them but once in, power on and install the lenghtly disk. The installation of the disk is the tricky card.
