Summary: I purchased this item after reading various reviews,which i took with a pinch of salt.After all they sell by the thousand,so a few bad reviews are to be expected.WRONG!Things started well,all installed & running within 15 mins.Then, click, no sound. Windows media player showed 'media changing'.The screen was then frozen,I could not exit,I was unable to close the window or to turn off my computer.The only way I could get any response was to remove the usb plug to the...
Summary: I generally agree with ShineBella - the instructions are all wrong, check the internet. Apart from that, there were no set up problems, The driver included is quite good too. In fact, when it wants to work the sound card works well too, but at roughly £20 it is just a cheap sound card and I'm not the only one to complain here of a crackling which kicks in after a couple of hours of the sound card being in operation.
Summary: I needed a new soundcard as I had just purchased a 5.1 setup. As I already parted with alot of my hard earned money for the speakers I didn't want to pay much more for a soundcard. BIG mistake..... After about 30 mins, if you are listening to music or watching a film it will speed up by more than double the speed and crackle. The only way to stop it is to close WMA or the program your watching your film on or listening to music on and re-open it.
Summary: When this soundcard does what it is supposed to do it does it well, however, when listening to music/watching films etc the speakers randomly crackle very loudly, the video or music skips, changes speed and when a media player is left on for a while they occassionally completely switch off. The only reason i bought it was because it is cheap, and then i realised i got what i paid for.
