Pros: 7.1 - great fidelity. Comes with a nice suite of utilities/apps. Line in/Mic functionality (nice for recording instruments).
Cons: Had some challenges with Headphone usage and this card. Seemed to conflict as dual use sometimes.
Other Thoughts: I really like this card. I had it in a PC of mine for 7 years until I got some issues with it. Bought the replacement here, and put it into the box (as I rebuilt it and passed it along to a friend). Great sound, drivers were challenging at times (was on Vista), but seems better on Win 7.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Compact card. Installed easy on Win 7. Very reasonably priced. Performs well, good definition. I'd buy it again if I needed a decent, reasonably priced, card again.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Bought this as a backup card, but passed along to a friend (in a machine) when I built a new machine for myself. Very functional card, not a high end gamers card but perfect fine for normal PC usage.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: APC Back-UPS BK500BLK 500 VA 300 Watts 6 Outlets UPS
Pros: Clean power, dependable, outlasted any expectation and warranty, can recycle with trade-ups program, line filtering and RJ45 jacks
Cons: Heavy (but what UPS isn't). The end of life alarm is really loud! No real cons though.
Other Thoughts: I bought this UPS 16 years ago. I lived in the mountains 10 years, where we lost power constantly. It's performed great, although I don't leave my systems on. Filtering works great, it clicks letting me know it's caught a dip. Definitely got my money's worth. When the battery alarm went off (pay attention to this, the tops can pop if you don't), I got a new one (more power). This little UPS outlasted 3 computers before it came to end of life. Very happy with the APC name, and am buying another one.READ FULL REVIEW
