So, your telling me they've been making giant cards taking up PCI/-E slots for years and all of a sudden they release something the size of a bluetooth dongle capable of the exact same thing.

Oh Creative, all that torture for what?

To be honest that doesn't really matter and doesn't even bother me. What I would like to see is that other motherboard company use Creative chips instead of crappy ones.

Gonna get any guarantees that it`ll work fully on any OSes ?

Or does GO! mean it`s basically stripped down enough that it`ll work on quite alot of things ?

creative need to give out their chips to mobo manufacturers i agree with that, all these 'HD' onboard solutions or even add in cards are still a load of crap compared to all the eax jazz you get with creative cards, saying that.. i made the move to auzentech and won't be going back to creative following the brawl that was x-fi on vista..

Agreed.

Creative's driver support has always been terrible, especially for Linux. We're still waiting for that X-Fi driver....

This thing isnt capable of EAX5.0 or anything past stereo output guys so it handles alot less than X-FI cards. For instance 5.1-7.1, EAX5.0, ect ect. Plus, id be willing to bet the USB bus bottlenecks it so you get garbage for sound sometimes.

I'd really like to have a review of that thing, though.

Well I'd like a good X-Fi, too, but currently my budget is kinda dried out.

what makes this ideal for LANs...? What was wrong with a PCI card inside your case anyway?

It takes up a slot which could be used for another thing. Its never been a problem to me, but it must be annoying for some other people.
