My rant for Creative Labs


:fu2:Creative Labs.

I'm never buying another Creative Labs product. I'm tired of their bull**** support for their ****ty products.

Ever since installing Vista, and using CL's available drivers (last updated March 17) for my Audigy 4 Platium sound card, I can't even stand to turn my speakers on because all you get is skipping and choppy sound..... even the little sound effect that tells you when you have a new message on MSN skips for god sake.

I'm so glad that the only company that has the copyrights to 3D Gaming Sound has such **** support for their **** products! Vista's only been out for 3 months now and the Betas were out for how long before that?..... you'd think that they could at least put together a driver that actually ****in worked! Instead when researching what the hell is going on, I find their so-called "product support people" saying that the audio drivers are conflicting with the video card drivers...... WHY THE **** would an audio card affect a video card in this day and age? This isn't Windows 3.1 folks! That is completely unacceptable!

Next time I build a system, I'm not buying a sound card - just using the on-board sound. Most mobos offer 7.1 surround these days, so what more do you need? I'm tired of wasting my money by supporting a company like Creative Labs and the bull**** that goes along with their products.

i've used live and audigy 1 and had no problems with either.

if you get choppy noises... go to direct x audio and turn off acceleration. it happened on mafia for me.
