Crud sound! – USB 3D Sound Adapter (Color Assorted) Reviews

posted by Hemingray on 10/25/2007 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
Plug & Play in XP, easy to use Does work with USB 1.1 just fine
Cons:
Sound is HORRIBLY littered with noise. Tried with an MP3 and could BARELY make out the music from the noise. Flimsy case. Mine is assembled loosely, connecting/disconnecting strain is placed more on the board. No microphone volume controls, Mic port appears not to work for me. Despite the box saying a driver CD is included, there wasn't one.
Other:
My ancient SB16/32 ISA cards would outperform this.
Bottomline:
Good I guess if you need an emergency replacement card until you can get a new one, the price is okay though. Could do with a better case design, and maybe a better chipset (or some method of clearing up the annoying static noises.
