Experience: 3 Years


great sound
driver conflict
been using this for years to power my HD570 which is like 10 years old, there is some driver conflict when using with win7, i just use an aftermarket driver. overall great sound for this price

Experience: 1 Months


Works well in Windows 7
I bought this sound card to replace a broken on-board sound card and it does the job very well. I can't say much about the sound quality since I have cheap speakers but it is at least as good as in on-board one. It's a great 7.1 card for people on a budget. I use it on Windows 7 64 bits and everything works fine.

Experience: 2 Weeks


-improvement over onboard sound
-none thus far...
Good upgrade from on-board analogue sound. It's pretty cheap, so it fit the budget for a budget build. The computer it is installed on will only be used for general internet use, so it's not like top notch sound was required.

Experience: 1 Days


Well known
None , you pay what you pay for..
I have nothing to say about this , i just bought it , REALLY exited to try it out since my audio output doesnt work on my Mobo, just the USB.. i think that soundblaster i well known for quality sound , You just cant miss it , good buy at my eyes..
Sorry for my lack of English mastering.. :D

Experience: 14 Days


Great linux compatibility (Ubuntu 10.04)
Easy to install
No connector included for front-panel audio ports
This was a great sound card for the price. The quality was reasonable. However, I had to return it because it didn't have connectors front-panel audio ports. I use headphones and mics all the time, so it is necessary for me that the jacks on the front of my box work. I have heard there are extra cables you can buy, but many of those cost more than the sound card! If you don't need this feature, this is a great card.

Experience: 1 Days


Cheap! Works
None really
Works as intended. Cheap, better than onboard sound.

Experience: 1 Days


cheap, reliable, plug and install driver and play
Good card for the price. Once you got the drivers, it works pretty well on windows 7.

It's hard to say more. at 25 bucks, buy it and try it, you have nothing to loose

Experience: 2 Months


great substitute for an old motherboard
best for gaming not music
I think the EAX and the gaming features are ideal with this soundcard. I really didn't notice a huge leap between this an the ALC889 chipset. This is best suited for gamers who want a cheap option.

Experience: 3 Years


- Good sound quality
- Adheres to quite a few standards
- Inexpensive
- PCI (legacy)
A good soundcard for the price. I've had it for a long time and haven't had problems with it on older systems and OS's. Newer OS's may have a bit of trouble with drivers, etc.

Experience: 2 Years


inexpensive nice sound
if you are looking for a little more performance out of your computer this is an enexpensive upgrade that actually sounds good too, sound better than most onboard sound.
