Audigy 2 - Not so good

Strengths: Good sound quality for the value

Weakness: Really poor customer support, card doesn't work as described.

I purchased the Audigy 2 as an upgrade to a Live card for two reasons, 1 - the live card wasn't able to keep up with the load on games; sound would get choppy, 2 - I wanted full 5.1 surround sound. I installed the card, purchased a Digital I/O Module and plugged it into a JVC Home Theater System. It sounds great, better than I expected; only problem is it won't output 5.1 surround. The JVC...

I have installed this card twice,...

Strengths: Decent sound, when working

Weakness: drivers just plain suck

I have installed this card twice, once on WXP, and now on W2K. It took me forever to get it to work on XP, it was not just a matter of no sound, or crashing games, like in a normal bad install, nooooo, this baby locks up the whole system. It crashes both xp and w2k on startup. I mean total lock ups, BSODs, system freezes, and restarts on loading. Major havoc. On w2k it was on a fresh install,...

Strengths: SQ is good. Haven't had install problems like other.

Weakness: Setup program is terrible. Not enough options.

I've had this card for 3 months with no complaints. For under $100, you can have great sound quality - assuming you can get it installed. I could get it installed on my fresh copy of XP Enterprise, but I wouldn't doubt others have had problems. The install program is terrible and does not have enough options. Overall, this is a solid 5.1 card.

Well... The sound quality of this...

Strengths: Nice sound

Weakness: Doesn't work well with windows XP all the time out of box webpage is horrible for understanding/ downloading what driver updates you want. Never got it to work on first installation try.

Well... The sound quality of this card is crazy and for gaming/watching dvd's azesome. But that's it. I have never been able to install sucessfully a sb live audigy or audigy 2 card. Seems that there is a bug with windows XP and errors with blah.dll cannot be found, please reinstall. Yeah, tried that and outside of the fact that their site goes in circles thier own drivers part of the wepage was...

Strengths: very good sound playback of recordings, its awsome ...i am no computer pro but i instaled i no problem and it has never crashed my computer !i dont know what these other retards are talking about.....

Weakness: needs more inputs and better ones i had to buy all sorts of adapters to modify it to my home studio
