USB Creative Sound Blaster Card

28 March 2019
I am ecstatic with the performance of this little device. It's amazing that technology has shrunk software to fit into such a small space. Although my choice of price was in the low end, the performance is exceptional. Much more advanced than the on-board sound device.

Excellent choice

24 February 2018
Excellent plug and play device. I got delivered it within 24 hours... Good job Pbtech....My only worry was about the item was linking it to the recording app Audacity. The card got detected by Audacity itself... Only problem with plug-in two big sized jack same time. Overall the purpose is met and a good choice... I like creative brands always...

Didn't have a huge impact on sound quality vs my desktop's on-board, though the software is useful and it's hardware acceleration did improve performance in FL studio. It did improve sound quality on my windows tablet however.
