REVIEWS

  • Hardware Asylum

    ...and the Creative Sound BlasterX Pro-Gaming G1 is a God send. Gone is the anemic stereo sound to be replaced with a full spectrum sound stage with full 5.1 interpolated effects.I would imagine most readers have an enthusiast level PC with a solid sound source already. For users on the go the Creative Sound BlasterX Pro-Gaming G1 is exactly what you need for bringing that same sound with you. It's simply small enough to fit in my Brainwavez case and powerful enough to make you smile.
