Pros: Relitivly Cheap. Easy to install, Looks. Quality. Volume
Cons: NO 5.1 support through 3.5mm.
while previous Creative X-fi cards have had problems with my copy of Win 7, this one installed without a hitch. Great sound quality, and lots of options make this a winner!
While buying this card means i cannot use my 5.1 without an outside amp, this is a non-issue as i only ever use headphones!
