Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Asustek Xonar D1 PCI Low Profile Sound Card (Accessory)
I bought this item on December 12th 2010. Then we had the worst winter weather on record and this item was stuck in a sorting office for 10 days. I had just upgraded to Windows 7 which knocked off my internal sound and all other PCs I have only had internal sound.
When it came I installed it and loaded the software. I noticed the difference straight away, so much better and as gamer and being stuck without sound for more than 10 days for gaming, music and other things had been a nightmare.
Three years on it is working fine, I have not tweaked with the software and settings but it has brought life into an old 2006 pc and I will have a spare sound card if this PC breaks down before the sound card. Games and music and sound is much better as stated before. I paid £53 for this item so about the same price currently.
I am happy with it as I play more games, music and you tube video files than ever.
So the only bad point is don't order in the winter if you sound has been knocked off as it may be delayed, otherwise the card itself should work great.
