Experience: 2 Years


nice card
awesome sound
headphones friendly
have bunch of these installed on my other pcs, still working like new, they could power 60-80ohms headphones with out a problem and they have awesome bass too

Experience: 1 Months


Worked Without any problem on the first try, worth to buy it so far
For me the price is abit high but well it is the buyers decision to decide wether to buy or not.
I heard that this thing is not that great.but for more i really like it. I think it was what i wanted to be.

Experience: 2 Days


Better then on-board sound
much better then onboard, running on a media server with 5.1 speakers. nice quality and has optical audio

Experience: 2 Months


Nice alternative to onboard sound, good features and enhancements,
Nothing really maybe black PCB...
Good card and provides better sound than onboard since it has all the latest creative enhancements. No issues as others. I have and been using this for awhile. p55 classified 200 left out optical input and i have yet to see an onboard optical in and out on any board. so this is the best budget sound alternative. Good product and recommend it to anyone.

Experience: 1 Days


A lot better than integrated audio, everything can be tailored to your own preferences. Card and software very easy to install.
Nothing so far.
A wat better option than onboard audio, nice to have an EQ again. As soon as it started you can tell the difference. Install was very clean and easy, don't understand the problems that other people talk about. Using Windows 7 Pro and a i7860 in a HP Pavillion, easy to upgrade.

Experience: 1 Days


Analog output
Digital In
I am very disappointed with this card,It works great with 3.5mm jacks but when you decide you want to use the digital in for ANYTHING it will shout at you constantly with crackling/popping.Currently have sent an email to get the issue resolved but if it isn't soon I won't have the card any longer.

Experience: 6 Months


Low price for optical out.
Sound is much better than onboard, when it works.
Semi-frequent sound crashes.
Poor Drivers
Doesn't work well with Vista.
I am quite dissatisfied with this card. It crashes in mid game and it seems to have a lot of issues if you try to use Surround Sound. It seems many of the issues I be because of Vista, but I can't confirm nor deny. I will be looking for a new card.

Experience: 2 Weeks


Good sound, good price
Got this when I was upgrading my computer as I figured it was time to ditch the onboard sound. Overall quite happy, good quality, and works alot better than the on-board sound options.

Experience: 2 Weeks


Very high quality sound
slow slow soft ware install/updates
I got this card because wy onboard audio quit, so I decided to upgrade to an opitcal audio output... WOW, what a difference. When I watch movies and play games I hear sounds that I NEVER have before THIS CARD ROCKS. I got a cheap optiacl cable (ION brand) and it work just fine for $7.. no need to spend $50 on a Monster in my mind. Down side is the software, it took 2 hours to instal and update  and once or twice the audio quits. I ran a 10 sec. diagnostic and it works perfect. A minor incoviniance

Comment: When the original X-Fi came out it was the first major new architectural change for Creative and for sound cards in years. It really was a great day for gamers and music lovers. The X-Fi offered so many improvements over the Audigy series, it wasn’t funny, new EAX, new Crystallizer, new driver model
