If that wasn't against the TOS i'd take you up on that.


Wether or not its some dude messing around or not we'll know tomorrow... However I hope it is true and creative needs to learn that they arn't as awesome as they think.

If it isn't then I bet Creatives driver department won't be getting their Chrismas bonus' this year if they put out any more crappy drivers.

Can't be an April fools day joke.... somewhere in that epic thread I read that Forbes predicted a 30 - 40 % drop in stocks on opening bell tommorow

creative sucks, I said it first. The Hundred Gunner was right again!

I swore I wouldn't buy another creative product a long time ago. This set the nail in the coffin for me.

They HAVE abysmal support for their products, and the INSIST on keeping their support that way.

I had to spend $30 for a repair on a zen touch UNDER WARRANTY. That doesn't include shipping.

My SB live 24-bit had a crackling problem.

My x-fi xtreme music had to be returned the next day because it wouldn't work.

EVERYONE I know in real life who has had a creative mp3 player has had hardware problems with it. My cousin went through 2, I went through 2, some of my friends went through one (they were smarter and didn't bother with the warranty to get back another crappy product).

My speakers' headphone jack is broken. The headphones have to be plugged in at the right angle for left headphone to make a sound.

My audigy 4 is the only creative product that I've never had a problem with.

I'll give credit where credit is due, though: creative is very fast and very reliable with mail-in rebates. Unfortunately, that's not enough. Their products suck, and their support for those products suck.

creative? Never again.

If that was the case, surely the "real" newegg would step in the room after recieving the confirmation email.

I wonder if I should return my Auzentech X-Fi Prelude...
NO WAY I'm returning mine........Creative's been acting a fool and all, but I'm not sacrificing my sound quality.
