This review is from: Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card
Pros: A million-gazillion times better than the realtek onboard audio on my asus motherboard. (Please note, that figure might be slightly exaggerated.) Still, it got rid of the very noticeable electronic hum in my fancy schmanchy logitech thx speakers inherent to onboard sound.
Cons: It took three days to get to me because i'm cheap and elected for free shipping.
Other Thoughts: OEM... Not retail. I got a soundcard... in a static bag. No driver cd. No fancy retail box. This save me money over the retail version. This same card sells as a retail box for more with a CD and a fancy box here on newegg. I need neither (and neither does the landfill). Downloaded the drivers from creative.. and I was up and running in no time. It took me more time to physically open my case and install the card than to download and install the drivers. I see people complaining it didnt come with a CD. Whaaaaa? Just go to creative's website.... and you save $money$ ! boom! paper in my pocket! I don't understand some people. And the drivers on the CD are probably old and need updating anyway! Anyway, the card sounds great for being as inexpensive as it is.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Overclocks very well, lets me run skyrim on ultra high mode. Upgraded from an XFX 5770.
Cons: For what I paid, it does what I expected -- its certainly not a top end card. To run 3 monitors one must be display port -- it wont let me run HDMI and two DVI but I knew that going in.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Hauppauge Video Capture Device USB-Live USB 2.0 Interface
Cons: I was willing to accept a less than stellar video quality, but this thing just sucks. Spend a little more and get something better.
Other Thoughts: It wouldn't protect you in a prison fight.READ FULL REVIEW
