Pros Priced just right, and puts out quality sound. Good software included.
Cons Mine seems to be going out after 14 months...on a 12 month warrenty.
Summary I have owned this card for 14 months as of today. And last night it started to die on me. I paid 29.99 at a local and I did not get the extended warrenty...O well. As for the perfromance of the Creative SB Audigy SE, I give it a solid 7.1. This is a good card if ypou want just a little bit more from your PC. Creative also just realeased a new driver making it compatiable with Vista and also fixing some of the XP bugs. Also I should note the Creative customer service is also about a 7.1. Everytime I had an issue that was not addressed in the knowledge base or on the Creative forums, all it took was one email and I had my answer in less than 12 hours. One time they even called me and helped me over the phone with some software issues. All in all the SB Aud SE is worth every penny. If you plan playing a lot of music and or gaming you may want to think about the next card up. Well it off to Frys and time to U/G...Later & Out, RJ

Pros works good with windows 2000
Cons Does not work with Windows 98
Summary I bought two of these cards, one for a windows 2000 machine and one for a windows 98 machine. This card will NOT work with windows 98. The install program pops up with an error that you need to upgrade your operating system. Manual install of the drivers will not work. On the win2k machine this card works well for gaming and playing music.
