Don't waste your time

Robert W., Newegg
6 September 2012
  • Summary: Running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. My onboard sound is: NVIDIA High Definition Audio using Microsoft's high definition audio driver.
  • Pros: None. Got the minimum of 1 star. Should be zero stars.
  • Cons: No sound from left channel. Installed Vendor's drivers and utility. Their utility tests my onboard NVIDIA sound better than their own sound card. They claim to support "Vista7" which doesn't exist. Worse yet, their driver interferes with disk check in windows 7. Will remove it immediate as a clea...

Affordable Soundcard

Derek E., Newegg
31 July 2012
  • Summary: I did have my sound going through my geforce 210 it had an HD audio driver if you use HDMI. When I installed this card my sound lost alot of the bass and depth. I'm sure it's something that can be adjusted the volume goes higher now than it did before.
  • Pros: It was about 30.00 dollars, It's 5.1, 24 bit, comes with low profile bracket. Installs in minutes.
  • Cons: The software drivers that came with the card and the ones on the manufacturer's site leave something to be desired. On the other hand this is a brand I've never heard of before.

  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Doesn't work with Win 2008 R2 Server 64bit. It takes out the LAN and the sound card doesn't play. AS soon as you take out the sound card Intel 1 Gigobite LAN works. The LAN is the default LAN port for ASAS Crosshair V Forumlla MB

Don't buy

Michael S., Newegg
28 March 2012
  • Summary: A piece of junk. my disability prevent me in modifing this trash. So I threw away this trash in the trash can
  • Pros: Great item for the trash can
  • Cons: This card is good for a 2U Rackmount server. 99% of these servers doesn't need a sound card. The servers mainly used for data processing. So this company is marketing this product to the home P.C. Market. It come wiith a adapter. So you will need good eye sight, steady hands and a real small scre...

Awesome card! Highly recommended!

Steve S., Newegg
29 October 2011
  • Summary: In my experience, no onboard sound codec or card can match up to having a separate PCI sound card. If you feel the urge to buy a real sound card then give this one a try! You won't regret it!
  • Pros: I recently purchased a HP DC7600 SFF desktop. The onboard sound has a RealTek 2 channel ALC260 codec. Obviously a codec is not even close to a real sound card. I had to crank the speakers just to get a decent volume! The sound quality was the pits! In my search for a new sound card I knew that my...
  • Cons: I do not have anything negative to say about this card.
