Summary: Either there is SUPER loud screaming from the speakers or poor muffled from one speaker. I even bought TWO new sets of speakers to try to fix this problem. But to no avail.
Pros: It works about 75% of the time absolutely perfectly
Cons: The 25% of the time that it doesn't work are when you go crazy. Occasional super loud screaming from speakers requiring PC reset One speaker goes muffled as heck sometimes (not speakers fault, literally tried two brand new speaker set ups)
Summary: yea in last month i build 2 comp bought all parts from new egg had acouple bad parts but not worth sending back but all and all happy with most of order wish give dicount after you spending like 1000.00 bics..lol
Pros: i nothing to say good about it
Cons: sounds bad no tech support not worth sending bye time you pay shipping
Extremely disappointed -- you may want to avoid this

Summary: Not even sure if it's worth attempting to return seeing as it is so cheap. Absolutely not worth any restocking fee or the cost if any to ship this piece of PCI plastic back. Seek something else. Even SoundBlaster has cards starting at $25, maybe I'll try that instead next time.
Pros: The price point -- was looking for an affordable alternative to the onboard sound card for a Dell Dimension 2400 which is almost 10 years old if not more. I took the recommendation of another reviewer and installed the drivers for the card from the website rather than with the provided mini CD.
Cons: Seemed easy enough to install, XP recognized it, had its own bundled software to control audio settings (Audio Deck or something like that). Went to go plug in the RCA cable from the 7.1 Yamaha stereo to the line out as well as any other jack only to hear sound coming from about 1 1/2 speakers ex...
Summary: I have only used it to play analog stereo out through a line-out jack to a 2.1 speaker set. It works fine for that. I have not tested surround, 7.1, spdif out, Dolby out to an external amplifier, recording, phone mike, etc.
Summary: Audio port on my motherboard went out, bought this to replace it. There's really no difference, so I'm happy. I'm using really old speakers, that were pretty cheap when bought though, so its not like I was expecting an improvement. Just a replacement.
Summary: Well, after I got the card to work, I almost cried. Also had a nice little blasting of David Glen Eisley. "Sweet, sweet, sweet victory (yeah)" was had today.
Pros: - Sounds bloody amazing - Price! - 7.1 - Works like a dream (WHEN YOU GET IT TO WORK) - A real quick fix
Cons: Spent five hours trying to install the HORRIBLE drivers. I tried using the disc, tried using the drivers from the website. Nothing worked! It took pure will and a little magic to get this to work. I got the CD to work by plopping it in, running it, getting it to fail, taking it out, putting it ba...
