[OCN] Creative's fall from glory - Page 86  

post #851 of 1091
i've had problems with creative sound cards before.....yet i still have one. haven't had any problems with it though...so whatever.

i highly doubt whatever boycott that's happening is even going to hurt creative that bad. they make tons of products...and i bet 75% of the people who buy them probably don't even know what's happening with all of this right now.

I dont see many people just straight RMAing their cards just for the hell of it, or just because of this little "uproar"
Besides, most people who are within the 30 day RMA window wouldve spent a few dollars more for the X-FI and those have no problems anyway.
But what about someone as customer-centric as Newegg selling cards advertised as Vista Ready when not all of the features actually are? I'm not sure if that is the heart of the issue here. I've been trying to read as much about all this as I can but it's growing so fast there's a good chance i may have missed something.

Thats exactly what they are going to do.

I'll bet that the majority of people are not aware of the various products marketed under other trade names either.... welcome to OCN btw

True, but Vista Ready is only at the driver level. This is the same for NICs, Wireless, etc. They have tons of features in XP(mostly ones you do not need) and just the driver to get you by in Vista.

Being Vista Ready is very broad. If it works AT ALL its technically vista ready.

Wow this thread really won't die. Look at the linkbacks.
Reaper, I fear for your ego

I think this truly shows the power of consumers when you get them uptight. It should be a lesson to other manufacturers out there.

The absolutely ironic thing about all this is I was at a store Friday night looking at a Creative card. I am only using a 2.1 speaker system and all I'd be interested is a boost in SQ over onboard. According to what I can interpret, I myself probably would have never known about all this if I wasn't a regular of this forum

Dont know but I noticed about 12 hours ago a few threads on their site showed as locked all of a sudden then nothing.

I'd bet they are currently considering how they are going to approach the problem (ie war room type scenario).
