Drivers will be the death of Creative

Matt Z., Newegg
6 March 2014
  • Summary: The drivers were OK under Windows 7, but the drivers under Windows 8 have been nothing but disappointing. I have since removed this from my PC because Creative has not released a solid driver in some time. Since removing this I have been using onboard audio.
  • Pros: It's a PCIe card It has a range of connection options
  • Cons: Drivers Bloatware, I mean Creative Apps

Great! When it works...

John D., Newegg
8 October 2011
  • Summary: Running win 7 home premium and have the drivers fully updated.
  • Pros: Great clear sound with .flac files and a plug for your front IO ports, LOUD. (my PC volume levels aren't even halfway up)
  • Cons: It constantly cracks out and dies on me, I then have to go into my playback devices and disable and re-enable it to make it work again, VERY annoying, especially while gaming. Not worth the $100 I paid for it...

Drivers are awful

Michael J., Newegg
27 September 2011
  • Summary: All of my issues appeared as soon as I installed the sound card, and disappeared as soon as I reverted back to onboard. The control panel is pretty slim and less configurable than my onboard. Individual speaker settings are nowhere to be found.
  • Pros: -Good sound quality.. but not noticeably any better than onboard using x540 5.1 speakers -PCIE x1 fits in all PCIEx slots -Sale ($65)
  • Cons: -Drivers drivers drivers.. -It seems to only UNofficially support Windows 7, and the drivers have not been updated in over a year. This is simply unacceptable. -I received multiple BSODs, had the sound entirely cutout requiring a driver reinstall, had sound hiccups and pops requiring a reboot, ha...

While it works

Calvin K., Newegg
12 September 2011
  • Summary: Windows 7 64bit MSI board AMD cpu
  • Pros: It had noticeably better sound quality than onboard.
  • Cons: This computer is only a few months old, and one day I turned it on and had no sound. I opened up the Soundblaster interface and half of it was missing. This is the second time I've installed the drivers. I'll just stick to onboard I guess

It gets you by...barely

Manny D., Newegg
28 July 2011
  • Summary: Overall, this card gets two eggs. I couldn't give it one because it does produce sound, which is it's intended purpose. However, the lack of quality drivers/software and difficult troubleshooting have made this card more of a frustration than anything.
  • Pros: It produces ok quality sound. It has TOSlink inputs and outputs. The hardware was easy to install, and so were the drivers. However, the driver/software installs were slow and annoying. If you don't have 7.1 or digital outputs, and just need something cheap that works (sort of), this might be a v...
  • Cons: This card simply doesn't have complete functionality. The audio that does work is still lower quality than my mobo's 7.1 realtek sound outputs. None of the encoding features work for me, nor does the Dolby surround sound or the 3D sound processing features. This is my first dedicated sound card, ...

Not worth it

Hussein J., Newegg
6 April 2011
  • Summary: I've owned this card for a lone time now, I just can't wait to get my hands on a non creative card, creative is not a worthy of my money nor yours !!!
  • Pros: Very good audio playback
  • Cons: 1- Drivers, took creative a long time to provide some working drivers. 2- No mic. boost, an over kill for me, using it to chat on teamspeak or ventrilo is useless.

Missing information from box

Anonymous, Newegg
27 March 2011
  • Summary: I bought this from a local retailer. Luckily they have a really good return program like Newegg because this product is very misleading. If some features do not work with Win7 then make it apparent to the consumer!!!! I had to get in touch with customer support to find this out.
  • Pros: None if you have a newer motherboard +win7. Otherwise there may be some pros.
  • Cons: Dolby Digital Live and DTS Connect are incompatible with Win7. Why bother with the card if it cannot do the one thing that my on-board cannot do? Huge waste of $88.50
