Pros
Easy to install
Cons
None so far
Summary
Got this to replace a failing on board sound card. I was bit worried about the compatibility with Linux (Ubuntu 11.04 I think) but it work flawlessly the first time without having to install any extra packages or go to the command line.

Pros
Works as specified and 5.1 is excellent.
Cons
The 5.1 sound quality is not great but good enough for what I needed.
Summary
Good card for the money. I paid $7.96 for this card with the IR$5 and $10MIR. Exactly what I needed.

Pros
very cheap!
Cons
typical sound
Summary
Well, I was just looking for the cheapest card that is window7 compatible, and I guess this is it!! So, I wasn't expecting top quality sound but hey it's still pretty ok.

Pros
Inexpensive
Cons
Poor configuration
Summary
Bought this to upgrade my pc, wish i hadn't though. It froze the pc after installing and only worked when i swapped this for my modem and worked in that slot. After finally getting it to work i realized that the software nor the windows volume control had options for separate rear and front volumes which my on board audio has, which was a huge issue for me because my rear speakers are farther away.

Pros
Solid Card
Has mic input too and headset output
works well with budget speakers (5.1)
Cons
card could have been smaller
if it's big it might not fit some smaller cases liek shuttles
Summary
Works as advertised. Simple card that can support up to 5.1 speakers. So far nothing with flaaking music or anything. Comes with drivers incase you can't find it, works well. INstallation was very easy took about 10 min. Easy to get to run. works with WIN XP. I haven' ttried this with vista, but probably will work. However vista is known to reject alot of drivers for no reason whatsoever.

Pros
Bonne carte a prix très abordable
Cons
Non considérant le prix payé.
Summary
Acheté en pricematch à $17 cette carte fournit du bon son 5.1 de base. Les logiciels fournit sont correct. Moi je ne peux m' attendre à mieux de la part d'une pareille carte à ce prix. Excellent si on a un vieux système qui a encore sont utilité mais qui gagnerait à améliorer le son. Je la recommande.

Pros
Good 5.1 sound. No noticable problems so far.
Cons
Not much in the way of software but does the job.
Summary
This is your basic 5.1 surround sound card with the usual basic software. Nothing fancy, but it works as advertised.
If you need a replacement or looking for an upgrade from 2.1 sound this card will do the job.
Only tested on XP so can't say if it is any good with Vista.
would buy this again if I don't upgrade to something more powerful like 7.1 sound.
Takes the load off your processor if you are still using on-board sound.

Comment: With today's chipsets and the quality of on-board sound there is no reason to run this card, except to save a few CPU cycles. Their highlight was music playback, but other than that, the card just did not stand up to the HD on-board audio.
