2 out of 5 eggsget the ZS!!!! Your Last Warning!!!!

Pros: Works fine, like the bundle software.

Cons: WARNING! This card has no connectors for case heaphone/mic ports Nor does it have FireWire ports and/or headers. I can't believe this as it causes problems with my new build. These things should be bundled into all the SB Audigy products, whether or not it bears the "Value" label or the ZS label.

Other Thoughts: I am quite angry. If I can somehow sell this Value (didnt buy from Newegg) I will get a ZS, because my mobo doesn't have FireWire support (stupid ASRock). No reason to buy this one that is only a few bucks cheaper. If you're strapped for cash, use the motherboard's onboard sound for scheisse's sake.

4 out of 5 eggsGood sound card for the money

Pros: Easy installation. Substantial array of included software utilities.

Cons: None of note.

Other Thoughts: I needed a value soundcard for a budget gaming rig, and this product seems to fit the bill. I haven't encountered any problems with the card so far, and everything sounds great.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!!!

Pros: This card is great. There are so many different settings that you can use using the software. The new sound sounds clear and crisp. Being a drummer, I can hear bass beats that I never noticed before.

Cons: None to do with the actual product. However, I recieved the product damaged, but that's neweggs fault. Newegg still rocks though.

Other Thoughts: Great buy!

5 out of 5 eggsAwsome

Pros: Great price for a nice sound card. Easy to set up and the tweaking software works great. Nowhere near the top of the line but it makes my Logitech X-530's sound great.

Cons: Be careful on the software install as there are lot of unnecessary programs that will install by default.

Other Thoughts: Paid for 3 day delivery.. got it in 2! Newegg rocks!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Sound

Pros: Great Sound quality, even made my tv speakers sound great.

Cons: The driver setup is terrible. You cannot just install the drivers for the card, you have to install the whole suite, which is ok, but if you are wanting to save disk space this could be a bother. I do not need to have 4 media players on my pc. I prefer to keep it simple.

Other Thoughts: Great sound for the money

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent sound,easy to install,great price.

Cons: UPS delivered it late.

Other Thoughts: I got this as a replacement with a old Creative sound card that was about 4 or 5 years old. I noticed a big difference in sound quality and my games sound alot different too. If your looking for a sound card with terrific sound at a low price,buy this. Newegg had this plus other items ordered shipped the next day. Go Newegg!

3 out of 5 eggsGood Card Terrible Drivers

Pros: Card produces excellent quality sound, and sounds quite clearer and better than my onboard audio. Good value for the quality.

Cons: Terrible driver install. I work on computers as a source of income, and have installed hundreds of components, and installed or upgraded countless drivers. I am fairly certain that Creative's driver installation was about the worst I have ever encountered. The installer added a ton of startup applications plus a couple of services (including a very dubious digital rights management service). On top of this, it was extremely slow and unstable (it crashed multiple times). Not only did it add AOL shortcuts in several places, it also tried to change my security settings to give AOL access to my computer as a trusted site. Microsoft Antispyware and Norton Internet Security had a fit with it and I suspect that might be why it kept crashing. My (rather high end) PC started booting up more slowly and acting sluggish until I removed some of the extraneous components and services from startup.

Other Thoughts: The card is great if you can get the drivers and software for it configured properly. The software is quite intrusive, and I would recommend that people be very careful about which components they choose to install.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat for the price

Pros: i wasnt expecting it that it wld be THAT GOOD ! the reason i was buying it, coz i needed 5 jack (in and out) to use the 5.1 channel along with mic and line in, (my mobo has only 3 jack) so i had to give up line in and mic for 5.1 channel.means i can not use skype or any voice chat software ... :-/

Cons: - cheap :) for the amazing sound that it produce, is that a con :) it should be more expensive lol !!!

Other Thoughts: if u r lookin for a no trouble sound card ! runing under x64, get that one ! I ASSURE U FEW GOOD SOUND CARD THAT CHEAP, provide a x64 drivers. !
