Good sound, but driver problems
The card was easy to install and connect to PC speaker system, drivers & software installed w/no problem, 5.1 audio sounds great. HOWEVER, the drivers are almost 2 years old and when installed it caused my Windows boot time to go from about 10 seconds to over a minute. The initial Windows loading screen would appear, then the screen would go black, optical mouse would turn off and the PC would just sit there with no activity for a minute or more, then bootup would continue normally. Uninstalled the driver and bootup went back to normal. This was true for the Turtle Beach driver (both CD and web site) and the driver Windows finds from its database. No card is worth a 1+ minute bootup time, so it's being returned.
