Not great but not complete junk.

Spencer N., Newegg
4 November 2013
  • Summary: When the interference began to be a problem I uninstalled the cards drivers and removed the card. Re-installed the drivers and card itself but to no avail. The card served a purpose, but not for as long as I would have hoped. The sound quality was good though.
  • Pros: It worked well for several weeks. Noticeably better sound quality over on board sound.
  • Cons: For some reason it began to receive radio interference. Picking up radio stations and such, it was comical at first but it became annoying after a couple weeks.

  • Cons: None, love this card. The bang for the buck is wonderful (picked it up elsewhere for 9.99).

What more do you need?

Charlie K., Newegg
16 May 2013
  • Summary: As a replacement, the price is right.
  • Pros: I bought this to replace the burnt out onboard sound card on my gaming PC. The included CD does not have drivers for Windows 8, but after a two-minute search for SIIG's website I was able to download and install them. The enclosed utilities make it easy to adjust volume level for individual speak...
  • Cons: No cons come to mind. I have no idea what the "game midi" is supposed to do, nor can I utilize the EAX 3D audio programs. The included CD does not have drivers for Windows 8.
