Summary: sounds good but no impressive have a big output, more than regular on board sound card the conector to the front jacks (case) is specific for the brand, so i had to modified... i´m musician, i don´t reoomend this card, or any designed for gamming, but was my option because i have another card for...
Worked great for the one month that it actually worked.

Summary: I bought this back in July and it worked amazing with my Logitech z-2300 speakers. The sound quality is unparalleled with on board audio. But all of a sudden out of nowhere, it all of a sudden stopped working and caused all audio on my computer to stop working.
Creative once again buys the farm for driver support
2 August 2011
Summary: At the time of this writing- and likely until the end of time- creative has yet to update their official drivers for this sound card since 2008. Their is a beta driver from last year that is incredibly buggy and obviously not for general use, but at least its newer and performs a bit better in most...
Summary: Creative has always been good to me with their products, however, still faced with finding an intelligent card that utilizes TSOLINK (optical). I have this card in my HTPC. When you install the Dolby Digital and DTS codecs, you have to set which you wish to use, ie the setting is static.
Summary: The installation is easy, I download the drivers from their website and it works fine with my Windows 7. My receiver only have digital in so I wanted a sound card that support Dolby Digital Live or DTS connect, this card does both, and that's why I bought it. Well let's talk about game first.
Summary: The card itself is fantastic however I had a hell of a time getting drivers to work properly with this thing. Finally I had to resort to recent beta drivers after the install of all the software on the CD failed to get the audio working 'properly'.
Summary: Save your money and get the Sound Blaster Audigy series. I thought this would be a decent upgrade from the Creative's external card "MP3+", but I actually want to go back to the mp3+. Their mp3+ series was SO impressive that I actually bought 4 of them (I wanted a couple spares just in case).

Summary: I have the deluxe PCI-bus version of this thing that I've been able to use for all kinds of projects on my older computer. When I upgraded to an HP Pavilion that only had ONE PCI bus, I had to buy this "PCI-Express" version, hoping to get some of the basic functionality I got on the PCI version...
