4 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: The Sound quality is great, the options for bringing sound in and bringing sound out are absolutely awesome. Most of the connections are still used to this very day. MIDI in and OUT are used in recording, having a miked pre-amp for a guitar or bass is phenomenal. For a small time studio user this is truely awesome.!

Cons: My remote won't work. I bought this used a few months ago and still have found no way to get it to work. Any ideas would be great.

Other Thoughts: Everything i had hoped for, headphone clarity is amazing i use an old school prologic set up. no center and it works great. looking forward to a bigger system, but i need more room.

4 out of 5 eggsThe card that won't die

Pros: I bought this card second-hand off a guy that had owned it since 2009, and I am amazed at the power of this card.

It is capable of handling the same 24 bit 96 KHz sound that the modern $150 Creative cards can handle.

Creative is still releasing driver updates for this card, and I am currently using it in a system running Windows 8.1 x64.

Cons: The styling on this card isn't as nice as some of the newer models.

There's no HD AUDIO pins for the front headphone and microphone panel on my case, only the proprietary Creative interface.

Other Thoughts: This card is a great alternative to a newer card if you're on a tight budget, and it is capable of producing quality audio to supply most any headphones or speaker systems.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: Great sound, optical audio in (for XBox 360), uses PCI-E X1 slot. Great little card. Got the one with the front panel addition and that is just insanely useful.

Cons: I had so many problems fitting this card in with the aluminum housing it's in.

Other Thoughts: If it wasn't for the box, it would be 5/5

4 out of 5 eggsGreat sound card

Pros: Added to old P4 2.4GHz system so I could record music from my digital keyboard. Probably was overkill, but I have had little trouble with the card. I like that you can record in 24 bit and 192KHz.

Cons: I have had no trouble with the board itself, but with the Web-based driver and application update I have had trouble. Twice now, after downloading the most recent updates (e.g., drivers and/or software), the system didn't recognize the sound card. After using system restore, I was able to use the sound card again. One other time, after runing updates, the sound card was recognized, but I couldn't use most of the associated softward (i.e. the software that came with the sound card). Finally, I have resorted to installing only one update at a time, starting with the drivers, and then rebooting before installing the next update. This seems to work for me.

Other Thoughts: Would give 5 eggs, but the driver and software update process has been quite a hassle for me.

I don't really have need for the 64 MB of XRAM, but I guess it is nice to have just in case.

5 out of 5 eggsI own 2 of these & they perform great on nForce boards

Pros: I have 2 Dual Boot systems. The first is a nForce 780i / XP 64bit & XP 32bit. The second board is a nForce 680i /Vista Ultimate 32bit & Windows 7 Beta build 7000.
The Sound Blaster drivers posted @ Sound Blaster's site work just fine on all of the Operating Systems except for the Windows 7 Beta. Daniel K @ Sound Blaster has provided a Beta support pack that remedied the drivers for The Windows 7 Beta install until Windows 7 is officially released summer 2009. I am using the Logitech Z5300 5.1 Surround on my 780i system @ 250 watts.....this will wake the neighbors for sure. The sound is "AWESOME"! The ASIO drivers work great with my Midi Controller. Thanks Sound Blaster for another great series. I upgraded to the Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum Fatal1ty Champion Series for more control when editing sound, but the quality of sound is equally "AWESOME"!

Cons: It takes a bit of home work to get the cards to perform as expected, but this is normal when it comes to upgrading. I'll admit that Sound Blaster's support team is pretty useless. The User Forums are loaded with really smart people that don't whine everytime they run into a glitch.

Other Thoughts: Visit the forums for support @ Sound Blaster & you just might find the answers.
