Weakness: No Linux Drivers, need better speakers to take advantage of sound quality

Strengths: Easy installation, front access controls are very nice (especially the addition of a firewire port), sounds are rich, remote control is cute. The command bar uptop can be hidden.

Weakness: The card may cause some games to crash resulting in a hardlock.

This card replaced an aging PCI 128 Creative Labs. Installation was very simple. The Audigy only takes up an additional slot if your case does not sport a joystick mount. Happily I have not been plagued by those issues as with my AWE-64. The sound always comes on. I first installed the card into my main P4 gaming computer residing in a 19" rack; but sacrificing one of the few external drive slots...

Strengths: Nice Front Panel, Great Sound, Firewire Support. Easy Instal.

Weakness: Hidden program that runs in your background that pools system info and sends it to Creative. Not mentioned anywhere in readme, and had very general cover-you-butt statement in agreement.

Good card, although I have problems with Papyrus Nascar Racing 4 and 2002 Racing Season and its 3d sound. That's more of an issue with Papyrus than Creative. Creatives hidden program pissed me off. I don't like people snooping on my computer.....
I'm thinking of selling this card on Ebay. Its good, but if it doesn't run my game I'll get something else.

Strengths: I would say the strengths are the sound produced, but I have had nothing but problems with this sound card. The strengths have become weaknesses.

Weakness: The card makes a loud shrilling sound after so many minutes of continuous play, and it locks up my computer. This card is feces (I cannot use the other word), and believe me, that is a compliment.

This card sucks! It makes a loud sound and locks my computer. The support is not good as well. It takes the support engineers 7 days to respond to one question. The suggestions the support personnel have made have not worked and they even suggest I make hardware and BIOS changes to my computer. DO NOT BUY THIS CRAPPY CARD. I am going to sell mine on ebay and give someone else problems and...

Well worth the investment....

Strengths: All

Weakness: No Linux Drivers

Well worth the investment. Although Creative has backed off on the software bundle that they used to include, I would have given it the best rating, but Creative does not have Linux drivers.
