2 out of 5 eggs Not great for Server 2008 R2 11/09/2009

This review is from: PPA 1431v 6 Channels 16-bit PCI Interface Sound Card


Cheap & fast delivery


CD setup program doesn't work; must let windows find driver from cd.

Drivers from manufacturer's website don't work at all.

Manufacturer's support section of website is "under construction" What is this, 1996?

Other Thoughts:

I bought this card because the audio drivers on my Gigabyte EP43-DS3L motherboard cause graphic stuttering in windows 7 64-bit and windows server 2008 R2.

Forget about using the setup.exe file on the installation cd, just let windows find the appropriate driver on the cd.

Inexplicably, the drivers I downloaded from the manufacturer's website do not work at all! The setup.exe finishes with a "did not install" error, and windows can't find an appropriate driver amongst the downloaded files.

I use simple stereo out (the green plug) and haven't tried any of the other features like surround or SPDIF so I can't comment on those.

Other commenters are correct in saying this is a very poor sound card, so consider yourself warned because it will cost you more to return it than to junk it.

Bottom line: For 10$ plus $6 shipping it will probably work for your most basic stereo audio needs.
