When the original X-Fi came out it was the first major new architectural change for Creative and for sound cards in years. It really was a great day for gamers and music lovers. The X-Fi offered so many improvements over the Audigy series, it wasn’t funny, new EAX, new Crystallizer, new driver model

Good card and provides better sound than onboard since it has all the latest creative enhancements. No issues as others. I have and been using this for awhile. p55 classified 200 left out optical input and i have yet to see an onboard optical in and out on any board. so this is the best budget sound alternative. Good product and recommend it to anyone.
A wat better option than onboard audio, nice to have an EQ again. As soon as it started you can tell the difference. Install was very clean and easy, don't understand the problems that other people talk about. Using Windows 7 Pro and a i7860 in a HP Pavillion, easy to upgrade.
I am very disappointed with this card,It works great with 3.5mm jacks but when you decide you want to use the digital in for ANYTHING it will shout at you constantly with crackling/popping.Currently have sent an email to get the issue resolved but if it isn't soon I won't have the card any longer.
I am quite dissatisfied with this card. It crashes in mid game and it seems to have a lot of issues if you try to use Surround Sound. It seems many of the issues I be because of Vista, but I can't confirm nor deny. I will be looking for a new card.
I got this card because wy onboard audio quit, so I decided to upgrade to an opitcal audio output... WOW, what a difference. When I watch movies and play games I hear sounds that I NEVER have before THIS CARD ROCKS. I got a cheap optiacl cable (ION brand) and it work just fine for $7.. no need to spend $50 on a Monster in my mind. Down side is the software, it took 2 hours to instal and update and once or twice the audio quits. I ran a 10 sec. diagnostic and it works perfect. A minor incoviniance
