Well..

Antoine M., Newegg
23 July 2012
  • 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...

Mostly a waste of money

Eric L., Newegg
29 December 2011
  • Summary: Probably better with SPDIF, but if your speakers aren't able to use it, don't bother with this card.
  • Pros: Crisp, clear sound and bass. Great surround sound
  • Cons: Anyone who has a recently bought motherboard will have onboard audio that closely matches this card. Not worth the $150. Haven't tried the digital out or the Dolby Live, because I'm not willing to spend the money on capable speakers.

Customer Support....

Kyle S., Newegg
16 December 2011
  • Summary: Customer support isn't worth the risk here.
  • Pros: Sounded AWESOME for music and gaming.
  • Cons: It died over a month a go, I filed RMA immediately and creative is just ignoring me. Avoid this card.

  • Pros: Worked great for 8 months, also had great sound. Then it was downhill from there. Only reason it gets 2 eggs vs 1 is I got it on sale for $60-70...Get what you pay for I guess.
  • Cons: After 8 months is started producing a high pitched back ground noise as well as picking up background noise from the video card fans (the sound would increase/decrease as I adjusted the fan speed) Nothing was changed prior to this happening. IE. headphones, wire(s), settings, card placement, and ...

The Quality of These Cards is in the Dumpster

Sean F., Newegg
19 October 2011
  • Summary: This is the third burnout I've had on a Fatal1ty product so that tells you what I think of creative at this point. These are poorly made and are not the product we bought back in the day. All the gold in the world on this card and you still cannot have one that works for two years straight.
  • Pros: Latest version of EAX Hooks up to anything Wide Game Support
  • Cons: Machine Resource Use Burnout Failures This is merely a re-badge and form factor change of PCI card and still has all it's failings. 109 SNR sucks when 124+ is out.. (Those cards are more than twice as loud for the hiss they generate!)

Not worth the money

Alexander C., Newegg
8 September 2011
  • Summary: I would only recommend this if your motherboard has bad sound.
  • Pros: Great quality input The card has inputs for any regular front panel audio
  • Cons: Cost I didn't see much improvement over my built in sound on my motherboard. Seems to have a lot of bloatware, and the software feels clunky.

Not worth the money vs onboard digital spdif out

Jonathan B., Newegg
16 August 2011
  • Summary: Not a worthwhile upgrade over my MOBO optical out. I bought this because my MOBO's optical out can't encode Dolby 5.1. The new card can encode game-based surround sound over the optical, and gets recognized by my home theater system as Dolby digital.
  • Pros: Nice looking card. Hardware build quality seems good.
  • Cons: I thought the Radeon Catalyst software was bad until I used creative's configuration software. The drivers in the box won't work with windows 7. You have to download new ones, then download a patch for dts encoding, and download a patch for Dolby Digital Live encoding. I didn't understand you nee...

  • Summary: Due to continual problems with Creative drivers and software, this will be the last time I purchase a SB card.
  • Pros: Good card...if you can get it to work properly
  • Cons: Horrible software and drivers from Creative. It was a nightmare just to get it to funtion properly. The shipped software and drivers were not compatible with the card. Had to DL additional items and even then it was flakey. Pops and crackles were a little too common.

Great but...

Martin L., Newegg
14 July 2011
  • Summary: Easy install.
  • Pros: Great sound, great features.
  • Cons: Be careful, output in 7.1Ch only on analog output. On optical output, only max 5.1ch. Creative is really slow to give updates for drivers and softwares.
