Pros:

When I could get it to work, it worked well

Cons:

Do a google search for this card with the terms cracking popping or scraping, "CPS" on the official support forum and you will think twice about buying this card. I am at my wits end with this item and I am never giving my money to Creative ever again, given their absolute denial of any liability for the clear problem that exists with this product line. One can only pass-the-buck so often when it comes to technical difficulties before we all begin to wonder what's going on in their labs.

Other Thoughts:

My problem was temporarily solved after spending weeks trying to find the exact right combination of drivers, PCI slot configurations and uninstalls. After updating my video card drivers, I accidentally forgot to uncheck the "nvidia HD audio drivers" from the list of desired software to be installed. The result was that my carefully-constructed menagerie of drivers and whatnot was smashed and I'm not about to go spend that same amount of time trying to find the right ones all over again. (They sure as hell aren't anything that Creative is supplying, even after a year of grief).

Their customers support staff were also totally unhelpful and had me go through an amazing amount of useless steps and then would not replace my item because I wasn't able to swap out my videocard, speakers or RAM for alternate units "just in case".
