RANT: Creative bashing driving me nuts! - Page 3

post #21 of 22
I just purchased an Creative card, and mic and sound problems insued. Creatives "support" for my problems was vague at it's best. That wasn't the AMAZING part. what amazed me was when i would scroll through page after page after page of other peoples problems, which in itself says something, and the post's would have a big 0 next to replies. 1000 problems and about 1 reply for every 30 or so. there is no excuse for that. I figured my problems out on my own, and thank god cause i never found an answer at creative's site.

Despite how long ANY company has been around they should never lose sight of customer service. And when you go to buy a Sound card....What are your options....CREATIVE takes about 80% or more of that market. So if creative is having neglect and competance issues, maybe someone needs to step up and fill the void. ASUS has a card for 69.99 i believe, maybe that one deserves a shot. At any rate...

everything has a Cause and effect, and though i respect everyones right of opinion, the bashiing and flaming of creative is the EFFECT, and creatives behavior and products are the CAUSE. To start a rant saying that your sick of consumers bashing creative, is to me saying, so what if the products aren't functioning properly, or the drivers are unavailable, or the customer service and support is a joke, just take it in stride, they will come around. I have to disagree. A rant bashing the Effect isn't the solution, and bashing the Cause of this, is exactly what people are doing.

If i have a choice, i prolly won't buy another creative product.

Who buys a sound card to give their CPU a rest? No one. People buy them for better sound, plain and simple.
