Creative Z

This is one of the best cards I have purchased. This card is worth the money + .

Excellent Sound Card

What a huge difference in sound quality for music & games over my old Xonar card! Easy install & set up in about 20 minutes. I suggest downloading the newest drivers from Creative instead of installing from the CD. For those that aren't as technically savvy, be sure to uninstall the drivers for your old sound device prior to installing the Sound Blaster card & drivers to reduce the possibility of 'issues'. If you were using the on-board sound built into the motherboard be sure to disable it in the bios (also to minimize the possibility of issues).

Great Audio Performance

East setup and terrific upgrade to my on-board audio. Could not believe the difference. Should have invested in this long ago.

Good Sound

Very good product, good sound, Digital in/out is a plus, very happy with this buy however the install was a real hard and a whole lot of issues but creative has always been like that, very happy with this product over all
