1 out of 5 eggsWas good, for a while

Pros: Sounded good i guess?

Cons: Doesn't sound any better than the soundcard that came with my motherboard. Didn't live very long ( of course, i didnt use it till i found it on a shelf long after it was out of warranty.... figures)

2 out of 5 eggsWell..

Pros: It was on discount when I had it, so, lets say very cheap!

Cons: I never really felt the difference... My speakers are average quality logitec and I just took out the sound card since it was messing up my drivers. My speakers were not turning off automaticaly when I was plugging in my earphones and I had to do it manualy wich was a real pain...

Other Thoughts: Get it if you need a sound card, I didnt, I regret

5 out of 5 eggsLove this card!

Pros: Great sound quality and no humming (even with 2 560ti's and 6 case fans)! This card outputs high quality surround sound and I love watching movies. This is a great step-up from on-board audio!

Cons: Cheezy Creative drivers but I can muddle through the simple problems.

Other Thoughts: I have to press the default settings in the Sound Blaster Console every time I boot my PC in order for sound to work,

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: Still going strong after 11 months of daily use. Compared to the integrated sound on my motherboard, the quality of this is unbelievable. In games, I doubt I could do as well as I do without the 3D positional audio. Music is unbelievably better as well. I listen to it so loud (because it sounds so much better than anything I've heard) that I have people come across the house to tell me to turn it down. I keep the Crystalizer on and all the way up all the time for both games and music. Just make sure you get the PAX drivers for this instead of Creative's. Using the drivers from Creative gave me that "wow" feeling when listening to music. About 2 months in, I installed the PAX drivers. It gave me that "wow" feeling all over again. They're just... Better. I'm using a 5.1 surround sound setup, by the way.

Cons: None that I can think of... Drivers honestly weren't much of a problem. GET THE PAX DRIVERS. (search Google, it's worth it)

Other Thoughts: This is an update to a previous review.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Coming from onboard audio to this is like meeting intelligent life from another planet, you will be shocked and amazed. Movies, games and music sound amazing. The crystalizer feature enhances sound and quality. People will tell you the newer mobo with onboard audio are just as good, i was one of those people, until i actually heard what a good sound card can do. I am never going to onboard audio!

Cons: The only con with this card are the installation of the drivers, i myself have not experienced that. Also the dam* bloatware that comes with the card when you install it.

Other Thoughts: If you are thinking about upgrading your sound on your pc this card should be on your list. If you are an audiophile person this card might not be to your liking, but for the average user who listens to music, plays games and watches movies, this card will blow you away.

4 out of 5 eggsDrivers?...Hmmmm

Pros: A Very Good Sound Card!
I like buying 'Discontinued Items' like this.
This is about 4 years old Tech Wise but, so what....
It is still an Up-To-Date piece of equipment for a PC.

I chose the Fatal1ty Pro because of the case over the one that is $20.00 cheaper.
NOT for the little LED light either. I could care less about that 'cool-ness'. haha!
I wanted a decent metal shield over this little card for protection to it.
So far it sounds GREAT and has a LOT more power then the On-Board sound.
Skyrim sounds so much better now.
I even actually hear the fires burning in those cisterns by gates and doors.
I noticed it right away when I Fast Traveled into Whiterun for example.
Also I can hear enemies in a Surround Sound environment.
THAT is helpful.
Easy to physically install. I put it in a PCIe X1 Slot ABOVE my Vid Card so the fan on the Vid Card is not 'blocked'.
Important!
I can still SLI if I want later on with no room problems in my case.

This card should out last my

Cons: Of course the DRIVER ISSUE!
I downloaded the latest ones I could find from Creative. (2010 approx)
However, I have not installed them as of yet.
I am still using whatever WIN7 (64bit) has.
Seems to work OK but, I was getting Crackling Sounds in Skyrim when I changed them to DVD or Studio Quality.
I assume this is more Game Related then Card.

I will ask my very best Friend to help me install the Creative Drivers later.
He is a top notch Forensic Security Expert and has forgotten more then I will ever know...haha!

That is my main complaint with Creative is their lack of true Driver Support.
Because I want to use ALL the abilities of this card for years to come.

Still a TAD pricey for a Disc-Item.
However, better then buying the Latest Greatest which I NEVER do.
That is silly to me since once you buy the 'best' it has lost value right away price wise.

Other Thoughts: A 'sound' Sound Card! Well built. I like the cover/case it has.
All metal and protects the 'guts' very well.

I was amazed at what I have been missing for years now.
I have not had a true Sound Card in 10 years.
My last was a SB Live I 'think'. Been so long...
The On Board I have with this new rig is not all that bad.
Just no AMP power to it.

I believe in my short time owning this and trying it out on Skyrim it has reduced some lag.
I use to have (short) lag when a NPC would chat to me as I walked by.
I have not seen/heard this so far. I believe it is because the Sound is NOT using CPU resources and slowing up the process.

Playing videos/Movies/TV Shows are by far a LOT better.
My 12 year old 2.1 system now is actually using the Sub.
What a lot of Boom-Boom now...haha! Very Nifty!
The key to good sound (IMO) is a Decent Sub-Woofer.
(I can't remember my Sub EVER sounding this good before)
A must have with TV Theater or a PC rig.

Would have given it 5 Eggs but

5 out of 5 eggsi need to stop being so cheap.

Pros: never had a sound card of this grade and man i wish i had got one along time ago. all i can say is BF3 sounds amazing now. music as well.

Cons: learned my lesson from my old audigy days (last time i had a sound card) and went directly to creative site for latest software install. only con about that was it took a while to get all of it installed. almost two hours for me. i've suffered worse so small point.

Other Thoughts: i had a very bad experience with the software install back when i had an audigy. just hated the experience and so it made it easy for my to just live with on-board sound. that and i couldn't bring myself to pay so much for a card and i might possibly put myself through more software hell to boot. everything worked out perfectly fine. i have terribad 2.1 speakers and it makes those now sound spectacular.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: - great sound quality
- cmss-3d works great, you can actually hear people behind you with stereo headphones
- I had no issues with drivers at all, I just downloaded them from creative's site
- simple to install
- the crystalizer feature improves sound quality a lot

Cons: - the cmss-3d works, but it butchers the sound quality, I'd rather just have it off

Other Thoughts: Even with my $100 headphones, I'm hearing things in my music that I couldn't hear before I got the sound card. I'd never go back to no sound card!

4 out of 5 eggsGood sound but has some problems

Pros: Sounds great and it lights up for extra bling.

Cons: Expensive and has software issues. When you switch modes from Gaming to Entertainment (vice versa) the sound cuts off and you have to reboot. Tech support told me to re-install the card but that didn't work. I just have to deal with it... I was also having issues with hearing buzzing sounds but they somehow stopped on their own.

Other Thoughts: The front panel connectors are not compatible with standard cables from my case (Corsair 600T)
