It wouldn't be surprising if they said something like "Consumers are in a uproar over creative's driver support, forums around the net are raising up and signing petitions, etc, etc" I doubt they'd actually say any site names
yeah it's like the no-pants on the train day that they cover. they've never actually said that it started at ImprovEverywhere

Yeah, I always thought those two looked extremely familiar... Didn't they also rebrand it as some kind of audigy before they pretended it was an x-fi? Audigy SE or something?

So it went like this:

$30 SB Live! --> $30 SB Audigy SE --> $70 SB x-fi extreme audio?

Piss on creative.

yes, the oamps are of low quality
and the capacitors have a high rate of going bad on a number of cards
and the front panel connector is horrid because it doesn't connect to almost anything other then Creative's panel. Unless there is an adaptor I dont know bout.

I'm on board with you guys - I don't like creative and I don't doubt that they cut corners and stuff. I'd just like to see an article or something backing the claim.

G4 sent me a confirmation email that they are aware of the issue, and will "most likely" be covering this story!! I sent them like three emails over the past couple days, including one just a couple hours ago with OCN linked... one can only hope that OCN could handle a hit like that if it were to happen!

I hope it makes the "EPIC FAIL" portion of Attack of the Show, or at least makes "The Feed"....

EDIT: YouTube videos are starting to pour in!

I heard rumors that Forbes was predicting their stock dropping significantly. Does anyone have a source to corraborate this? I can't find anything doing a search for "Creative" or "Creative Labs" on Forbes.com.

I read something about that about 70 - 80 pages in on the OP @ Creative
