Driver disk is useless

Pros: On the plus side, the card works well with the Win 7 drivers. Thankfully. They installed even though the others did not.

Cons: None of the files on the driver disk worked. Not one. Driver install hung twice and failed, installation of the control panel did nothing, 32 and 64 bit files listed for Win 7,8 and Vista all had the Vista filename attached to them. Useless. Save your money and buy a card with usable drivers.

Not great but not complete junk.

Pros: It worked well for several weeks. Noticeably better sound quality over on board sound.

Cons: For some reason it began to receive radio interference. Picking up radio stations and such, it was comical at first but it became annoying after a couple weeks.

Overall Review: When the interference began to be a problem I uninstalled the cards drivers and removed the card. Re-installed the drivers and card itself but to no avail.

The card served a purpose, but not for as long as I would have hoped.
The sound quality was good though.

... Windows 7 Works...

Pros: This is a response to SilentMonkey91...
You sir aren't following the appropriate steps to set this card up on Windows 7... It's a bit tricky and takes some playing with, but I can guarentee that it works. Often, when you see reviews of people with Windows 7 succeeding; it is likely it should succeed for you unless the card itself is defective (and in this case seeing that it works flawlessly on windows xp... the card is just fine).

To install properly:
Put the sound card into a PCI slot.
Install the SoundWave drivers and utility.
Open the utility and set it for 6 channels (as you most likely have a 5.1 system).
Open your computers sound control panel, open up the speakers and set it to 5.1...

If you don't do both of these steps and lets say; only do it in your windows sound setup... You will only get 2 speakers to work and even your bass won't kick...

Takes some patience and fiddling with... but I can assure you that it works.

Cons: None, love this card. The bang for the buck is wonderful (picked it up elsewhere for 9.99).

Great For the price

Pros: Got this for my dad, however he had me take it out because it was 'overheating his computer'. Was actually his heatsink on his cpu overheating his computer, however he would not let me put it back in.

I tested it out in my system just to see how it preforms. It does great for the price, and if your just looking for an alternative when your motherboard dosent have sound jacks, this is the cheapest route to go.

Cons: None!

What more do you need?

Pros: I bought this to replace the burnt out onboard sound card on my gaming PC.
The included CD does not have drivers for Windows 8, but after a two-minute search for SIIG's website I was able to download and install them.
The enclosed utilities make it easy to adjust volume level for individual speakers or apply effects to audio output.
All in all, it does what it says it should.

Cons: No cons come to mind. I have no idea what the "game midi" is supposed to do, nor can I utilize the EAX 3D audio programs.
The included CD does not have drivers for Windows 8.

Overall Review: As a replacement, the price is right.
