    I bought this for use with a Mac to replace an older Firewire external sound card, and I'm very pleased with it. The sound quality is good, and the microphones work extremely well, all wrapped up in a convenient USB-powered device with the added benefit of some front ports for headphones, which are often awkward to connect to Macs with ports on the back.

    The only problem is that this device has no drivers that work with OS X Yosemite, even though it's now been out for some time, after an even longer period of early access for developers (precisely for people to update their software!). This is a very disappointing lapse for Creative, however the device works well enough without its software, albeit with no ability to tweak individual speaker volumes etc.

    Comes with a very long lead (connecting to back of computer and plugging it into the unit at the front), is easy to setup, the cd installs and updates over the internet with no problems. The twin microphones are easy to use with a range of effects to change the voice from male to female, munchkin, alien and so on. Comes with profiles for gaming and enables a scout mode (which I haven't used as yet) for gaming. Also other features which I'm not sure about. One problem I did find is when using the microphones a booming noise starts after a few seconds which increased in volume, changing modes did work but it came back. I presume it must be picking up interference from something but moving it about doesn't stop it. Not something I'm bothered about as it has performed well over the few days I've been using it.

    I listen to music and watch films through headphones on my PC, which came with a no frills integrated sound card. I bought the Creative Blaster Omni Surround 5.1 solely to get a louder volume, and it achieves this with great sound quality too!

    The box is small, light and very easy to set up. I like having the big volume dial on it, and the remote control was an unexpected bonus.

    Bought this to replace my Soundblaster Axx, which is doing other things now.

    Very easy to set up, simple software, and the volume control is solid and tactile, which was one thing that bugged me about the Axx.

    An excellent device :D

    A very clear device good volume. Ibmv not tested the heafphone amp yet. The onlything that makes mr loose a star for it is the fact that some sounds can be stoped and started abruptly such as system sounds and arnt properly processed.

    Works effectively. Sounds great on my Sony 5.1 surround sound system. Simply connects to computer and laptop by USB and looks like a quality product. Choose this over an internal card as its portable and can be used simply by laptops so don't have to listen to the internal tinny speakers no more. Internal microphone works well but do not use enough to recommend.

    Occupying little desk space and putting a large volume/mute switch in easy reach, this USB soundcard fixed my primary problem -- no more crackling when inserting mic or headphone jacks. There's a phono output/3.5mm jack connector on the reverse that accepts your desktop speakers and a clever in-built stereo mic that Skype colleagues report is as clear as my headset mic. The bundled software has a huge array of options to control voice and sound clarity, including an equalizer. Just be careful to set it as your default audio device to by-pass the onboard sound in your PC. Unobtrusive and very functional.

    I used to use the Extigy model but found that this was not compatible with Windows 7 when I upgraded. After a little research decided to buy this one and I am not disappointed
