Pros: Upgraded from a 7 year old SB X-Fi Xtreme Gamer. There is a noticeable audio difference in both games and while listening to music. The Creative Control panel is intuitive and lightweight. One of the benefits of using this sound card is that you can have speakers and headphones plugged in at the same time and you can switch between the two easily via the control panel. Took Creative long enough to implement this awesome feature :D
Cons: While all the connections in the back of the card are labeled with icons or numbers, I feel that it would be easier for poeple to differentiate between each connection if they had labeled each of the connections with text rather than icons or numbers. Particularly for the 5.1 speaker connections, they have it as 1, 2, 3. Would be better if they had it as Front, Rear, Sub/Center.
Other Thoughts: The included driver disk, as expected, was pretty outdated. I was able to grab the latest version of the drivers off of Creative's website but the download was painfully slow ~15-30KB/s. Nothing wrong with my Internet as I usually get about 3MB/s down from other websites.READ FULL REVIEW
