5 out of 5 eggsWEll it lasted almost 2 years. I guess that's what I get for buying a refubished product, fool me once shame on me..........

Pros: This card just flat out gets it music, movies and especially gaming. The utilities in the package do the Job there is a feature which allows you to hear you opponents coming at you much sooner. This card improved what I all ready felt was a great system.

Cons: None with this product .itself.

Other Thoughts: Got this refurbished for half price and am very pleased with it. this is the first time I have bought a refurbished item. One nice thing for me was going for a Red lit and black background. This card produces a nice bright red glow. Really looks nice.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Option for Legit Audio

Pros: Easy to install, looks rad, awesome control software, can switch between headphones and speakers without the hassle of plugging and unplugging cables, Sounds great

Cons: None worth noting

Other Thoughts: I was a little bit skeptical of getting refurbished audio components but newegg apparently does a great job with quality control! Zero complaints, had some very minor cosmetic damage but once it was installed it might as well been new! Recommend this card new as well but it's a steal refurbished!

1 out of 5 eggsNever worked

Pros: None

Cons: Never worked

Other Thoughts: The documentation said "factory tested" but when i received it, it never worked. When I put it into my machine, the light on the card never lit up. Tried every slot on my board. It was never detected.

I don't think I will ever trust a refurbished product again.

1 out of 5 eggsgarbage. absolute garbage.

Pros: it has a red light that when installed cant be seen.

Cons: the audio from the card is terrible based on the fact that sound only comes from half the channels the other half is pure static all the time. Updated drivers, reinstalled the card, etc etc nothing fixed the issue. The card itself fits terribly into the motherboard slot as basic computer vibrations will cause it to walk itself out. Also an email about this issue to Creative Labs went ignored. I used to think CL was a good brand. I was wrong.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi there!

This is definitely not our intended user experience.

With some systems if there is a bios incompatibility in the motherboard.

We'd suggest updating the motherboard bios as well as drivers as this typically resolves issues with motherboard traffic. The symptoms you've noted above look like there is an issues with the PCIe bus.

5 out of 5 eggsOUTSTANDING!

Pros: This thing blows my previous sound card away. I went from a xonar DS to this card. I can't believe the difference. The bass notes vibrate small items on my desk, even on the lower settings. I am using this card with Logitech X-530 speakers. They're not even the highest quality speakers at all and they sound almost as good as my buddy's $600 dollar sony system. I love the THX control panel, you can make your music, videos, and games that are in 2.0 into a simulated 5.1 experience. It brings games to life because of this feature. I was playing an older RPG with this option selected and it made me feel like I was more immersed. To cut this here, if you're thinking about buying this card, stop thinking and DO IT NOW! It's also got a pretty red light emitting from it!

Cons: Scout mode is a bit useless but that's the only thing I can think to say as a con. It may help with older games like CSS or Battlefield but in new games, they do a good enough job with the footstep effects.

Other Thoughts: Buy this card now!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The sound card is what I expected so far and works.

I was surprised it had a red led and that you could leave the headsets plugged into the back and use software to switch between speakers and headphones. That alone is worth the $35 since having to unplug and plug headsets in constantly has done a number on the headset jack. It also clears up space since no longer need to use the front headset jack where the cord was easily tripped over. Everything is now neatly tucked away back and behind my desk.

Cons: My only negative was that the bracket of the card was bent so it didn't fit between the case and the motherboard. The card sat at an angle not all the way into the pcie slot. I had to physically bend it as straight as I could without damaging the connectors to the board. The bracket still doesn't sit flush with the case but the card can be put in the pcie slot properly now.
