Very true but I noticed even the current 2.22c is a beta. Oh well I have it working now and it slaps my onboard in the face!

Razer is terrible with drivers. When Vista first came out, it took them months to get 32bit drivers out for their mice. For that, I've switched back to Logitech and I'm not going back.

I did however, bite and bought that sound card. I just wanted something different from Creative I guess and I'm dismayed to hear that Razer is up to their old habits again. Ugh. I guess I'll download that driver and save it on my USB drive. Thanks.

Well to be honest it sounds pretty good. I am as far away from being an audiophile as one can be but I do notice a difference. The price was right and it's been a while since I ventured beyond onboard so I went for it.

It is sad that there's the driver issue. As I said earlier, for $50 bad drivers are SOMEWHAT overlookable but I've seen this thing $200ish. For that price and considering Razer markets as the cream of the crop, it's really bad that their Vista support is where it is.

Hmm..The link in MNiceGuy's post no longer works. It seems that clicking the download button merely leads you to Razer's website, which no longer has the file. Any suggestions?

2.23 does not work for Vista x64. I was hoping to try 2.22b instead, as that has been reported to work well.

2.23 does, however, work just fine for XP x64. It confounds the mind.
