Good sound quality
This is a good card if you want something really cheap.

Experience: 2 Months
 Verified Owner
- major improvement over my Realtek onboard sound
- great value for the $
- front panel header for connecting your front panel audio ports
- hard to use software
The card itself is great value if you're still using onboard sound on a no-frills motherboard. Easy to install and comes with most ports that a basic user would need.

But the software that comes with it for tuning settings is very clunky and hard to use. (Install something like XonarSwitch for creating sound profiles so you can easily switch between groups of settings depending on what you are listening to at the time.

-uses the mostly untapped PCI-E 2.0 slot
- sleek and small
- surprisingly and noticeably better audio than onboard
- good headphone amp for those with wired headphones
- great features
none really as this is a lot of bang for your buck
recently purchased a motherboard without optical audio ( which I normally would never do) used an older creative xtreme audio card...wasn't impressed. picked up this card and the difference is quite noticeable. far superior audio quality and range. would recommend this over stock/onboard any day of the week.

as for those who say it does not have a front panel headphone jack, well you're wrong. use the cable that your pc case has and plug it in to the front panel header on the card. voila.

Okay for the price
the headphone is not very good
Good sound card for the price range and is a definite improvement over the motherboard sound. However the front panel audio header does NOT have an amp. I've had to make do by awkwardly plugging my headphones in through the back and my external speakers in through the front panel. Otherwise it does its job. If you have the budget, I would recommend getting a higher-end sound card.

- Cheap PCI-E sound card
- Better than onboard audio
- None
Great bang for the buck. It's missing some other stuff like headphone amps but you're not going to find that at this price range.

If you're an audiophile you'd probably look elsewhere but this is a great replacement if you have busted onboard.

Very good sound quality even with cheap headset, not so expensive.
I had to buy it because the sound in my motherboard wasn't working properly, and now its working very fine.

Sound quality is superb.
Headphone amp allows to add more sound where you want it.
Headphone Amp does not work through front header connector, back ports only.
Purchased this card to hopefully get some more low end/volume out of my headphones, of which it does perfectly.

Max volume while the AMP is active will likely blow most headphones, however the sound drivers include a separate limiter option (defaulted at 70% max) to help prevent blowouts from happening. For my headphones I ended up setting this limiter to 50%.

The fact that the headphone must plug into the back of the card directly to use the AMP will either be an annoyance, or even a deal breaker for some.

Has headphone amp, good sound, lots of features and cheap!
Second time I have used this card in a computer. Works good, good sound. Nothing bad to say about this card. Would definitely purchase again.

good card for little budget and PCI-e
Many PCI sound card in the same price range destroy this one...
I bought it to replace a X-fi Xtreme audio (basically an Audigy SE) and it's not close to the x-fi at all, really disapointed of this card...

Better than any onboard audio but not as good as other competing solutions, even without the headphone amp, the X-FI play louder and better and it's a 7-8 years old card that was selling for 40$ in that time...

I'm using the Exciter mode (>64Ohms) so this is the max output level it can deliver and it's not even enough to power a Siberia V2 (32Ohms) to the same level as the X-FI can...

PCI-Express 1x
Digital out
Headphone Amp
My PC was having random game crashes to desktop. I was ready to rip my hair out after about 3 days. I finally uninstalled the drivers for this sound card and removed it from my a week later I am 100% problem free. Onboard is good enough for me, it's not worth the hassle for this model.
Drivers were causing games to crash and many multimedia programs to suffer the same fate. Consider this a 1 star review for all intents and purposes.
