Creative Sound Blaster Recon3D Fatal1ty Professional (70SB135600000) 5.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Easy install (no surprise with PCIE), sounds good (when it works)

Cons: This card doesn't work reliably. Sound crackles and pops, right and left channels cut in and out to the point where it is almost unusable. Have made a full run of attempts to correctly disable motherboard audio settings, load latest drivers, etc - also installed the card into a fresh build. Problems persisted across both speakers and headphones, even with all the fancy settings on the card disabled. STAY AWAY from this product.

Other Thoughts: I didn't purchase this card from NewEgg, otherwise I would've been able to return it (nothing but awesome customer service from NewEgg) - my local retailer wouldn't take it back, so I'm just trying to warn others. Creative Labs offered no useful tech support, simply suggested I re-install drivers and reboot... no kidding...
