3 out of 5 eggsNot great but not complete junk.

Pros: It worked well for several weeks. Noticeably better sound quality over on board sound.

Cons: For some reason it began to receive radio interference. Picking up radio stations and such, it was comical at first but it became annoying after a couple weeks.

Other Thoughts: When the interference began to be a problem I uninstalled the cards drivers and removed the card. Re-installed the drivers and card itself but to no avail.

The card served a purpose, but not for as long as I would have hoped.
The sound quality was good though.

5 out of 5 eggs... Windows 7 Works...

Pros: This is a response to SilentMonkey91...
You sir aren't following the appropriate steps to set this card up on Windows 7... It's a bit tricky and takes some playing with, but I can guarentee that it works. Often, when you see reviews of people with Windows 7 succeeding; it is likely it should succeed for you unless the card itself is defective (and in this case seeing that it works flawlessly on windows xp... the card is just fine).

To install properly:
Put the sound card into a PCI slot.
Install the SoundWave drivers and utility.
Open the utility and set it for 6 channels (as you most likely have a 5.1 system).
Open your computers sound control panel, open up the speakers and set it to 5.1...

If you don't do both of these steps and lets say; only do it in your windows sound setup... You will only get 2 speakers to work and even your bass won't kick...

Takes some patience and fiddling with... but I can assure you that it works.

Cons: None, love this card. The bang for the buck is wonderful (picked it up elsewhere for 9.99).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat For the price

Pros: Got this for my dad, however he had me take it out because it was 'overheating his computer'. Was actually his heatsink on his cpu overheating his computer, however he would not let me put it back in.

I tested it out in my system just to see how it preforms. It does great for the price, and if your just looking for an alternative when your motherboard dosent have sound jacks, this is the cheapest route to go.

Cons: None!

5 out of 5 eggsWhat more do you need?

Pros: I bought this to replace the burnt out onboard sound card on my gaming PC.
The included CD does not have drivers for Windows 8, but after a two-minute search for SIIG's website I was able to download and install them.
The enclosed utilities make it easy to adjust volume level for individual speakers or apply effects to audio output.
All in all, it does what it says it should.

Cons: No cons come to mind. I have no idea what the "game midi" is supposed to do, nor can I utilize the EAX 3D audio programs.
The included CD does not have drivers for Windows 8.

Other Thoughts: As a replacement, the price is right.

2 out of 5 eggsBuy something better

Pros: Cheap, good sounding audio

Cons: Cheap, horrible mic static

Other Thoughts: Bought this about 2 years ago, It hasn't died (not that i know of) but i have it disabled and am using my onboard audio because my friends on skype said when its connected they hear a ton of static, ive replaced my microphones a few times and they still hear it.
The audio sounds fine, but i bought it for a more clear sounding audio AND microphone. Maybe i just got a bad card?

2 out of 5 eggsVery Disappointed

Pros: Works fine in Windows XP.

Cons: I couldn't get it to run in Windows 7 no matter how hard I tried. I contacted customer support at Siig and never got a reply back. I ended up reinstalling Windows XP, where the card works fine.

Other Thoughts: Don't understand how they can ignore their customer support line or put out drivers that don't work as they claim too. Never buying from Siig again.
