    If you are looking for a superior alternative to the quality of your laptop or desktop's 2.1 analog onboard sound, then you should without a doubt consider this sound card. For the performance, portability, and features that the X-Fi HD USB offers, it is a very solid solution.

    Good sound quality with a ton of high end connections for hooking up to a hi-fi or high-impedance headphones. The difference between this and on-board sound is palpable, whether you're playing games, watching movies or listening to songs.

    Nice device. Decently constructed. Very good sound quality (though at this price point not true hi-fi of course). Good value for money.
