    Surprised there's no mention of free Samsung smart phones at T-Mobile this Friday and Saturday only (free after rebate). Galaxy SIII for free seems like a heck of a deal and I just might be buying my first smart phone this weekend.

    Not a bad card. All software based, but cpu's have tons of power now days. My only complains for that card are
    1. THX enhancements do not offer the same quality/options of CMSS-3D from old X-fi cards
    2. The card is more quiet then a normal cards(analog). I can only guess its a limit of the 5 volts it gets from the USB port. I am not sure what opamps it uses, but if they are not rail to rail, they may be limited to a MAX 3.8-4 volts of swing(or 1.9-2 volts about and below 0). While I would figure that should be enough it was noticeably lower then even my onboard audio(and much quieter then my X-fi).
    3. Line-in and Mic-in seem to be shared so only one at a time.

    On the other hand, it sure was an upgrade for my laptop audio.
