Pros

Low profile/half height. S/PDIF output.
Cons Full length card.

Summary

I use this in my media box. I needed a half height card to fit, but the card is LONG. I had to bend it to get it to fit into my small media case. Make sure you have enough room before you buy this product. Works great though!!

Pros

Great sound for this PCI-E 5.1. Easy to install, and configure settings! Great price for this Sound card.
I'd definitely recommend this to any one out there for better sound on a 5.1!
Cons None

Summary

To me, on board sound don't sound better than a PCI-E card. Or any PCI sound card.
Great build for any one who want a Great sound rather than on board!

Pros

- major improvement over my Realtek onboard sound
- great value for the $
- front panel header for connecting your front panel audio ports
Cons - hard to use software

Summary

The card itself is great value if you're still using onboard sound on a no-frills motherboard. Easy to install and comes with most ports that a basic user would need.

But the software that comes with it for tuning settings is very clunky and hard to use. (Install something like XonarSwitch for creating sound profiles so you can easily switch between groups of settings depending on what you are listening to at the time.

Pros

-uses the mostly untapped PCI-E 2.0 slot
- sleek and small
- surprisingly and noticeably better audio than onboard
- good headphone amp for those with wired headphones
- great features
Cons none really as this is a lot of bang for your buck

Summary

recently purchased a motherboard without optical audio ( which I normally would never do) used an older creative xtreme audio card...wasn't impressed. picked up this card and the difference is quite noticeable. far superior audio quality and range. would recommend this over stock/onboard any day of the week.

as for those who say it does not have a front panel headphone jack, well you're wrong. use the cable that your pc case has and plug it in to the front panel header on the card. voila.

Pros

Okay for the price
Cons the headphone is not very good

Summary

Good sound card for the price range and is a definite improvement over the motherboard sound. However the front panel audio header does NOT have an amp. I've had to make do by awkwardly plugging my headphones in through the back and my external speakers in through the front panel. Otherwise it does its job. If you have the budget, I would recommend getting a higher-end sound card.

Pros

- Cheap PCI-E sound card
- Better than onboard audio
Cons - None

Summary

Great bang for the buck. It's missing some other stuff like headphone amps but you're not going to find that at this price range.

If you're an audiophile you'd probably look elsewhere but this is a great replacement if you have busted onboard.

Pros

Very good sound quality even with cheap headset, not so expensive.
Cons none

Summary

I had to buy it because the sound in my motherboard wasn't working properly, and now its working very fine.

Pros

Sound quality is superb.
Headphone amp allows to add more sound where you want it.
Cons Headphone Amp does not work through front header connector, back ports only.

Summary

Purchased this card to hopefully get some more low end/volume out of my headphones, of which it does perfectly.

Max volume while the AMP is active will likely blow most headphones, however the sound drivers include a separate limiter option (defaulted at 70% max) to help prevent blowouts from happening. For my headphones I ended up setting this limiter to 50%.

The fact that the headphone must plug into the back of the card directly to use the AMP will either be an annoyance, or even a deal breaker for some.

Pros

Has headphone amp, good sound, lots of features and cheap!
Cons None

Summary

Second time I have used this card in a computer. Works good, good sound. Nothing bad to say about this card. Would definitely purchase again.
