SAm, Sheffield Technology Geek

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Once you get it configured it sounds great.
Well priced.
Simple to install.
Bad points:
Configuration is as always with Creative products a nightmare. If you try to install it without using the CD you will have problems.

Drivers are bloated and install loads of stuff you don't need.

Sam, Sheffield I like Technology

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
A great price, good features and excellent sound quality.
Bad points:
The drivers are still as bad as Creative drivers were in 1995. Why oh why Creative dont just supply a normal windows driver that doesnt require all the bloat to be installed to work is beyond me.

Ian, Trowbridge

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent Sound Quality.
Windows 7 Compatible.
Also compatible with my old creative 5.1 Surround speakers!
Good software set up.
Speaker connections colour coded the same as my previous computer.
Bad points:
No Game port although this does not bother me one bit, but could be an issue for some!
