Got this for a new Xenon based Dell workstation which is used (amongst other things) for video production.
Needed support for 5.1 speakers, which the T1700 motherboard does not have.
The sound quality seems excellent, the installation was faultless (64bit Win7) and its control panel is good.
It outputs via a set of £60'ish "computer" 5.1 speakers.

(Incidentally, I am of the opinion that spending on anything more than a card like this, unless it is connected to proper Hi-Fi speakers, is a complete waste of money.)

Needed to fit a new sound card as the built-in jobbie on my desktop has been distorting ever since a Windows 10 upgrade a couple of months ago and no amount of driver downloads or roll backs seemed to help .

This card fitted the bill as being in the Goldilocks zone for price & having consistently positive reviews.

It installed easily and is now giving distortion free sound into my vintage Philips MFB speakers

The output volume is higher than the built-in card ever was and, although my vintage ears are not what they were, I am hearing vocals more clearly than before.

Of course it could be a placebo effect of just having spent some money on a new soundcard ?

When operating systems left my old soundblasters redundant, I was left wanting for that full sound that I was used to. On finally giving in to Windows 10 I went looking for an upgrade and was overjoyed to find this card! For the budget price, it offers such an improvement on M/B chips, comes with a very pleasing software package, and proved to be a very capable sound card for very little outlay. It installed in minutes from the disc and provided all the tweaking possibilities required for modern computing. Bargain!

Not happy. New Audio PC build Windows 10 - sound card installed + latest Creative drivers + onboard audio disabled in BIOS but no sound output, although meters software meters show output and all troubleshooting inc. Creative's own show no probs. Tried with headphones and line out and no joy.
Searches online to find a solution have proved fruitless. Cannot recommend. Now going to have to look for alternatives.

Great entry level sound card. You really can deaf the change in definition & clarity compared to standard on-board audio. Would recommend to audiophiles & gamers looking for an affordable sounds upgrade.

Bought an Asus Xonar DGX before this but found I kept having to turn up my 2.1 speakers to get a decent output.
After much fiddling and upgrading drivers, no difference.
So took the plunge and bought this card despite concerns about the usual bloatware included with Creative products.
Wow what a difference, much higher sound output, games sound so much better and a minimal software burden. Bargain!!

Well, after owning this SB Audigy Fx for all of 24 hours, and speaking with Creative Support for more than half that time, the new T6300 sound system does not fully work – just two speakers out of 5 make a low noise, or none work at all (depending on configuration). This is all the while having every volume control turned up to the maximum.

Instructions for the card do not meet the physical attributes of the card (instructions show 6 jacks as opposed to the card which has 5). When mentioning this to the Creative Support person, no response was made!

Anyway, long story short, I won’t work any longer. It was hit with a heavy sledgehammer last night.

Never again do I even want to hear the word Creative.

I’ll stay with LogiTech.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a perfectly good internal soundcard, which fits a PCI-E slot in your PC, and supports 5.1-7.1 surround sound speakers.

I used this card to replace an older Soundblaster Audigy. The install is fairly straightforward. As it's an internal card, you need to remove the outer case of your PC (and remember to turn it off!). Then locate a PCI-E slot on your motherboard, and gently push the tines on the soundcard into the slot until it clips into place. Then re-attach your PC case and turn it back on again.

Some (much) older motherboards may not have a PCI-E slot, so it's worth checking this before buying a card that requires PCI-E.
On restarting the PC, you're likely to need to install drivers and other software to enable the card to work effectively - these are all conveniently supplied on a disc that comes with the card. Slot it into your CD drive, and be prepared to click the `Next' button a lot. It's a bit of a tedious process, but quite straightforward.

The provided software is alright as well - the Creative mixing software is useful for touching speaker effect volumes, EAX and so on. It may not beat the level required for serious audiophiles, but if you're intending just to set-it-and-forget-it , then it's perfectly acceptable.

Once installed, the card is easy to connect to speakers; it has four outputs - three analogue and a digital out, and a Mic-In input jack. I wired it up to some 7.1 speakers for testing purposes. The sound produced was perfectly acceptable - clear when given either music or speech, pushing appropriate sound to each channel, and producing a decently deep bass when I changed the levels. The treble is a bit tinny, but it's decent enough, given this is an entry level card.

Overall then, an easy install, some decent software, and good quality (if not exceptional) sound; very good price-to-performance ratio if you're looking for an entry-level internal soundcard for your PC.
