5 out of 5 eggsDOES NOT INCLUDE GAMEPORT

Pros: Inexpensive, works well, sound fine.

Cons: No gameport ??

Other Thoughts: Not sure if the item snafu is fixed yet. I ordered TWICE and was sent the PPA 1417V which doesn't have gameportl but does have optical out. Newegg made right (as ALWAYS), but be wary if you NEED gameport.

3 out of 5 eggsMixup

Pros: - Cheap
- Easy Install
- Works

Cons: - Wrong model delivered (Newegg delivers the 1417v which has the optical out instead of the game port)

- Had to download 1417v drivers from maufacturer's website (CD provided had wrong drivers)

Other Thoughts: If you need the 1417 specs, then beware. Otherwise a decent sound card.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It would be good if you could actually get this card.

Cons: This catalog item is wrong. I ordered this item and was send an iconnect sound card which does NOT have a game port. I returned It -- they sent me the same wrong part again. I contacted new egg, and they basically refunded my money and said they couldn't fix the problem. My advice -- Don't Order this item -- you probably won't get it.

4 out of 5 eggsgood value sound card

Pros: cheap, sounds better than the on-board audio

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Installed the sound card, booted, and Vista installed the driver automatically. Sounds better than the on-board sound -- sounds clearer and more dynamic. It's powering my Cambridge Sound Works powered subwoofer/book shelf speakers. I listen to about 4 hours of audio daily on my PC, so maybe I should have bought a better card, but I'm not sure my non-audiophile ears could tell much of a difference.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: I used this card to replace a dead onboard sound chip. Windows XP recognized it and loaded the current WDM drivers from windows update. It uses a VIA Envy chipset.

Cons: I did not receive the card pictured. The one I got has no game port, but has a bonus optical out port in it's place.

1 out of 5 eggsA Nightmare

Pros: I don't know. I couldn't get the card to work.

Cons: The card that Newegg sent did not have a game port, but an optical one instead. I tried my best to get this thing to install with Vista Ultimate 32-bit and failed miserably.
