1 out of 5 eggsJust Reporting

Pros: The two sent didn't install in either a normal XP or Vista machine. I'm an 18 year computer expert, and this card don't work. NewEgg should be ashamed of selling them. The Pros here are that NewEgg may read this and abandon this defective design.

Cons: Bought two, what kind of quality control results in two bad one? Tried both cards in three machines, although I suspected from the beginning something was wrong when the cards did not respond to either the (junk filled) driver disc, or the StarTech download link.

Other Thoughts: I'm only reporting what happened to me, tried these cards for a period of two weeks, not hard to believe they were both bad, Chinese manufacturers still do dump bad lots with no warning. Just bought two Creative Cards, 2 minute install and working. Heed or not.

3 out of 5 eggsCard is goo but install is tricky

Pros: Works great after the installation is done properly. The sound is good for the average computer; but, i wouldn't recommend it for a gaming computer.

Cons: The installation disk that comes with it SUCKS BIG MONKEY BALLS!!! There is a bunch of useless 'pig feces expelled' programs that have nothing to do with the sound driver for the card. If you use the installation guide, it tells a driver location, the driver doesn't even work.

Other Thoughts: Here's some real computer-saving advice, DON'T USE THE DISK!!! Install the card, then go to the manufactures web site and download the driver from there. The install is a breeze after that, and the card works like a charm. Then after that is done, take the disk, and you have a nice round coaster to set your coke can on to keep from getting a sweat ring on your desk. Or, use it as a clay pigeon. The choices are endless...

4 out of 5 eggsIts OK

Pros: Does what its supposed to do for a very low price card. Not for those of you that want surround and 5 channel or more sound. Works for a set of PC speakers, headphone and mic.

Cons: None, considering it does what I expected.

Other Thoughts: Did not buy it from NewEgg (my bad). Bought it from a local shop and paid more because I needed it right away to replace my onboard sound that died.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works as expected. I didn't have high expectations. I just wanted something to use in place of the onboard sound which produced static and pops. This did the job.

Cons: The crazy software that replaces the windows volume control

1 out of 5 eggsVery Bad

Pros: I only wasted a small amount of cash.

Cons: I bought this to replace the faulty onboard sound on my pc.
My computer recognizes it, but the drivers don't work at all. I tried using the disc that came with it, and also downloading the drivers from the StarTech website, (140MB DL). Both files would not work. I would receive a constant looping sound the first time I tried playing an mp3 after 3 seconds and my computer would be frozen, and I'd be suck listening to that sound. I had already uninstalled the old drivers and shut down before I added this StarTech junk.

Other Thoughts: I tried some tech support on their site, which led me to download their current drivers from their page. Although the tech guy knew what he was talking about, it still didn't help that the drivers didn't work for me. BTW I am using Windows XP SP2. Don't go cheap for a sound card, its not worth it.
