[OCN] Creative's fall from glory - Page 60

Blindly following the popular consensus without any real platform as to why you are doing what you are doing makes you all look stupid. It is so easy for you to be written off that way. If you all TRULY hated creative so much, why did it all of a sudden happen today? Why didn't you smash your card and boycott them once you realized that it wasn't working properly for you? It is things like this that hurt OCN. I have always liked the fact that this was a (usually) mature crowd that liked to think a little. I just think it is amusing that there seems to be the most reaction when it is something bad and there wouldn't be half the response if it were trying to praise something good. It is always easier to put something down without justification than it is to praise it. I guess that is because most of you just want to be accepted and popular and it doesn't matter the validity of your arguments. Maybe when you grow up you will realize that.
THANK YOU. This is a great post, and explains the truly best way to approach something like this. I have to rep you for this post for putting my thoughts in text. Thank you!

I suppose posting an intelligent, in depth post is a waste of time? Well that is truly great news for you since you can't seem to accomplish that.

Umm monopoly?? I think onboard sound is more prevelant than a Creative card, or havent you noticed?? There are probably 20 other manufacturers of sound cards so that hardly makes them a monopoly.
How will I show proof? Its about a year ago since I had my last defective Creative device.

- 3 failed Zen Micros
- 1 Zen Vision
- Dodgy headphone jack on Zen Micro
- Varying success/disappointment with sound drivers, even in XP

In terms of monopoly, Creative certainly dominate the dedicated sound card market. Its not very often you see or hear about other sound card manufacturers. From my experience anyway.

Well I am sorry for your bad cards and components but you cannot project your own misfortunes onto the rest of us. Your just adding fuel to the small flame that is these kids having problems.

I have owned 4 times that many Creative products with nary a problem. Does that make me right or you?? Neither. It just means you have had some bad luck or I have had some good luck or both.

I dont tear into AMD and start a AMD hate thread because I have had some bad luck with their procs and motherboards. I especially dont rewrite their code and try to sell it to other consumers, thats lunacy.

How is it vista? Please provide proof before blindly posting something as "fact"

Onboard sound, while it is lackluster compared to an x-fi (sound wise) onboard sound drivers WORK, and other sound card companies' drivers work, it's creatives' that suck. I've been wanting to get rid of my sound card for a while now. This whole daniel_k thing was the final straw for me.

Thats pretty sad that another guy getting caught *stealing* and trying to resell it was the "final straw for you."

Lol Vista is not at fault here.

Other Sound cards have drivers that work perfectly well with Vista (32 bit and 64 bit )

Its now ure decision if you choose to accept it or not to change soundcards!

The funny thing is Daniel K actually made a GOOD driver for vista which actually WORKS!
