Good Quality Sound Card & Easy Interface
Christine P., Newegg
1 September 2015
Summary: I've been using this card for five (5) years now and it has been very easy to use with no software of hardware issues. Sound is easily configurable and you can test 7.1 channels with the software. Sounds great with a speaker set-up within the room or even with headphones.
Pros: -Easy to use software interface -great sound quality
Cons: Doesn't sound any better than the soundcard that came with my motherboard. Didn't live very long ( of course, i didnt use it till i found it on a shelf long after it was out of warranty.... figures)
Summary: Get it if you need a sound card, I didnt, I regret
Pros: It was on discount when I had it, so, lets say very cheap!
Cons: I never really felt the difference... My speakers are average quality logitec and I just took out the sound card since it was messing up my drivers. My speakers were not turning off automaticaly when I was plugging in my earphones and I had to do it manualy wich was a real pain...
Pros: Still going strong after 11 months of daily use. Compared to the integrated sound on my motherboard, the quality of this is unbelievable. In games, I doubt I could do as well as I do without the 3D positional audio. Music is unbelievably better as well. I listen to it so loud (because it sounds s...
Cons: None that I can think of... Drivers honestly weren't much of a problem. GET THE PAX DRIVERS. (search Google, it's worth it)
Summary: If you are thinking about upgrading your sound on your pc this card should be on your list. If you are an audiophile person this card might not be to your liking, but for the average user who listens to music, plays games and watches movies, this card will blow you away.
Pros: Coming from onboard audio to this is like meeting intelligent life from another planet, you will be shocked and amazed. Movies, games and music sound amazing. The crystalizer feature enhances sound and quality. People will tell you the newer mobo with onboard audio are just as good, i was one of ...
Cons: The only con with this card are the installation of the drivers, i myself have not experienced that. Also the dam* bloatware that comes with the card when you install it.
Summary: A 'sound' Sound Card! Well built. I like the cover/case it has. All metal and protects the 'guts' very well. I was amazed at what I have been missing for years now. I have not had a true Sound Card in 10 years. My last was a SB Live I 'think'. Been so long...
Pros: A Very Good Sound Card! I like buying 'Discontinued Items' like this. This is about 4 years old Tech Wise but, so what.... It is still an Up-To-Date piece of equipment for a PC. I chose the Fatal1ty Pro because of the case over the one that is $20.00 cheaper. NOT for the little LED light either. ...
Cons: Of course the DRIVER ISSUE! I downloaded the latest ones I could find from Creative. (2010 approx) However, I have not installed them as of yet. I am still using whatever WIN7 (64bit) has. Seems to work OK but, I was getting Crackling Sounds in Skyrim when I changed them to DVD or Studio Quality....
Summary: i had a very bad experience with the software install back when i had an audigy. just hated the experience and so it made it easy for my to just live with on-board sound. that and i couldn't bring myself to pay so much for a card and i might possibly put myself through more software hell to boot.
Pros: never had a sound card of this grade and man i wish i had got one along time ago. all i can say is BF3 sounds amazing now. music as well.
Cons: learned my lesson from my old audigy days (last time i had a sound card) and went directly to creative site for latest software install. only con about that was it took a while to get all of it installed. almost two hours for me. i've suffered worse so small point.
Summary: Even with my $100 headphones, I'm hearing things in my music that I couldn't hear before I got the sound card. I'd never go back to no sound card!
Pros: - great sound quality - cmss-3d works great, you can actually hear people behind you with stereo headphones - I had no issues with drivers at all, I just downloaded them from creative's site - simple to install - the crystalizer feature improves sound quality a lot
Cons: - the cmss-3d works, but it butchers the sound quality, I'd rather just have it off
