Just what I needed 2/14/2019 10:49:11 AM

Pros: Installed easily in my Dell Optiplex 745 running Fedora 28 Linux. It is a relatively small desktop box so half-height sound card was the only option. There aren't many around these days.
Seems to work flawlessly and I have nothing to complain about sound quality.
FedEx had it on my door in a week. Not bad, either.

Cons: Haven't found anything to complain so far.

Overall Review: Yes, I would recommend it and would buy another one if I needed one.

Surprisingly good card for it's price 12/11/2016 4:45:39 AM

Pros: runs with the onboard audio if you have one.
Crisp surround sound and music for gaming.
5.1 surround sound driver support
surprisingly good sound for the price.

Cons: no windows 10 drivers on installation CD
occasional distortion in bass if it is cranked up

Overall Review: I will start with the con. If you have windows 10 and you bought this card, discard the CD. It has NO driver support for Windows 10, and windows 10 doesn't recognize the new hardware once you put it in. Also don't bother going to the media website on the CD (Cmedia), they don't support drivers past Windows 8. You have to go to the product vendor site (StarTech.com) and type in the part number on your card or box to get the right drivers. Once you download the drivers and install them, then you can do the real work
Once I got the drivers loaded and completed the installation, i was amazed at the crisp, clean sound for a card so cheap. It handled my creative 5.1 surround sound speakers excellently, and the music was theater quality. i watched a movie with this card in and it sounded almost as good as it would being in a theater. And using this card for the games Call of Duty, World of Warcraft, and The sims 4, i was impressed. However, too much bass makes a bit of distortion; i would recommend keeping the bass at baseline or slightly higher at the most. This is definitely a card i would recommend for the budget conscious once you get past the pain of installing the drivers. In fact, this card also runs my Gaming rig.

Piece of junk 9/14/2016 9:21:39 AM

Pros: None

Cons: Device manager sees it. When trying to install the driver it keeps saying..plug it in. Driver package on-line, same result.
CD has set-up file only and users are unable to load drivers manually.
More time, effort and cost to return than to buy another brand.

Overall Review: Would I recommend...NO.
Would I buy again...Absolutely NO.
What would I do with this product...Discontinue it.

OUTSTANDING SOUND! 8/19/2016 2:45:28 PM

Pros: My old Sound Blaster FX somethingorother (8 years old) finally bit the dirt. So I switched to integrated sound on the motherboard and the sound would come out garbled. I'm studying for a certification and a garbled instructor is useless. So, I was forced to come to Newegg and get a new sound card. I saw this card right away and it had 5 eggs from all 6 reviewers who bought it. Kind of hard to ignore 5 egg products. Mind you I have a $15 pair of cheapo speakers, but all I need to do is hear sound. Nothing fancy like gamers or video freaks. Just sound. I pluged it in, installed the driver, restart, and I was instantly blown away by the sound quality! I never expected a $18 sound card do what this thing does! Supports front speakers and back speakers. And $15 cheapo speakers.

Cons: I had to install the card. Grrrrrr . . .

Overall Review: If your sound needs are minimal, this card will put a smile on your ears!

Great product, thought it was DOA but got it working for Windows 10 5/11/2016 2:23:24 PM

Pros: - Easy installation in PCI slot
- Great music quality

Cons: - At first, it did not work, but I just had to download the appropriate drivers, the drivers on the disk DO NOT work for Windows 10 for some odd reason, they should change this. Otherwise, a great product.

Overall Review: Great product, just takes some driver finding if you are using Windows 10. A+++
