Do not buy from tigerdirect with electronic items.
12 September 2014
Summary: Do not buy from tiger direct if you are living far away... the sound card is defective and I must pay for the transport from the Netherlands to the USA the sound card cost 25, USD and I must pay for 14, USD for transport to the Netherlands. The card is defective (dead on arrival) Tiger told me to return the object to tigerdirect and after that I get the money back only the original cost... I must pay for the transport from the Netherlands to the USA.
Summary: as Long as your are savy enoughto know how to run a fully separated amp set-up (and have four amps laying around) then this is the card for you. I actually never installed this card but had the 5.1 version prior and then got a deal on a creative Audigy2 zs but we are'nt talking about that. Major drawback?
Summary: works great ! i have windows vista 64bit and the sound card didnt work. no problem at all. went to the makers website and got the proper software installation to make the sound card work. works great !!!! sounds better than my motherboards sound card that took a crap.
Summary: As describe, if you want a high performance and fidelity don't buy this card, but if you are like my, than buy for price this is the perfect sound card, average performance and fidelity many features and good software for DJ. in other words I'm happy with this card and maybe bought another if i need it.
Summary: Before I purchased this card I did some research as I always do before I buy. I had read somewhere that someone had driver problems with this card. I decided to buy anyhow because I needed a card right now being that my on board sound had died. I installed according to instructions. I took me about 5 to 10 min. tops. Popped open my case, installed card into one of my empty PC slots, closed case back and reconnected my cables and powered up.
