2 out of 5 eggsIt will give you sound...

Pros: If your motherboard has no sound, like mine, it will give you that and not much more.

In short it does work for the cheap price, but with no real frills. I only play games and it seems to work fine for that.

Cons: The saying "you get what you pay for" really applies here.

Had to juggle slots like some of the other people to get the sound clear, never had to do that before.

I would have given it a "3 egg" rating, but driver support seems to have died off for this card a little too soon. Maybe a Realtek driver would work?

Other Thoughts: It's a dead card to Creative, you should buy something else.

5 out of 5 eggsIt just works!

Pros: HEY! The price is right, and the results are fine for more or less common use. I bought this to replace a failed mobo built-in audio. Pulled the cover. Plugged the board in, put the cover back on, turned the box on, changed the bios to external audio, plugged the speakers in, ran the driver disk and I am back in business. No complaints, no problems on my Asrock N68C-GS FX board at all.

The included driver program lets me tailor the audio to my rather strange lopsided speaker set up here and the equalizer fits my declining hearing nicely. Peak this, lower that and I'm good.

It just works. At this price I don't think you can or should ask for more.

Cons: none so far at all.

5 out of 5 eggsGood flash drive

Pros: Hey a decent sound card. Gives good sound. No problems. No hiccups. I like it. Good sound for a decent price. No complaints.

Cons: No cons.

Other Thoughts: It is a decent sound card. I bought it to bypass my on-board sound card on my motherboard to give my motherboard less stress performing other functions.

No complaints at all.

2 out of 5 eggsbe careful of what you buy

Pros: Produces good quality sound for software based audio codec card. That's it.

Cons: The sound processoir is a realtek alc898. If you don't believe me, here is the creative sitelink comparing the audigy fx and rx even showing that it iuses the audio codec:

http://support.creative.com/kb/ShowArticle.aspx?sid=120331

Other Thoughts: just because you make software for poopy realtek audio on some motherboards (the sound blaster cinema software used on some alc 1150 codecs) doesn't mean you owe a favor to your COMPEITION creative by making a cheap audio card and outright lying by printing your creative name on a realtek chip, Yes, the card's codec has a creative logo on it. It's your competition creative, what are you thinking by going in bed with what is on more than most motherboards out there when you make batter discete cards? DUH!!

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible sound for the price

Pros: -Excellent sound with headphones or speakers.
-Very cheap (got mine on a Newegg Flash deal for less than 20 bucks).
-Has input pins for front audio panel.
-Software is easy to use, online drivers are kept up-to-date.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: If you are experiencing poor audio quality (buzzing/echo/down-sampling), and you are running Windows 8.1, check your sound properties in the Control Panel and disable the 5.1 Surround (select "Stereo" instead).

My card initially had the same audio problems that many reviewers here are complaining about until I disabled this feature in Windows. Install the latest driver from Creative and let it handle the 5.1 surround instead, and select the headphone mode whenever using headphones.
