PIECE OF JUNK!Oct 09, 2010
Like a few others the first one I picked up had the wires pulled out the back and could not be recognized by my computer as a USB device. I had to go back and trade it in. Now I have an even bigger issue. It installed just fine, even prompted me for registration, but when I open the Audio Control Panel it does not show up, so it has essentially become a $40 CTRL ALT DEL button under my desk. I have tried everything suggested on the help files and even contacted customer support with no response. Do yourself a favor and buy something that doesnt have a World of Warcraft sticker glued to it that falls off at the slightest touch.

Broken upon receiptJul 21, 2010
By Darian Grey
Like the first reviewer upon opening the box I saw that the plastic at the connection point for the usb cable had come unglued and the wires were exposed. Not acceptable for a $30 addon that is more of a luxury to than a neccesity when using the headphone. Very disappointed that creative and Blizz would allow a product to be shipped in such a state.

It works! After you load headset drivers though...Feb 22, 2011
By Brian Rhoden
A long time ago back in the stone age of computers, I had done the same thing with a Radio Shack cassette footpedal that hooked into the "remote control" of the cassette recorder so you could start and stop the deck. I rewired it to the matrix of a disassembled keyboard to create a quasi macro footpedal to press a key.
I am happy to see after 20 years, someone has brought my hack job to a usable peripheral. I only had one problem with it, and that was if I used "Alt-Ctrl-" and a letter... in would work as a push to talk for my VoIP software but in WoW it would ignore the "Alt-Ctrl" and press the letter key which had an unwanted ability firing off. So I assigned it to the "~" character.
Another word of note, if you have no programs running, it will play the window "asterisk" sound and that's annoying to people on the other side of your VoIP.
If you don't own the WoW headset, you will have to download the headset drivers and install them, it will know you have just the footpedal and will allow you to configure the footpedal separate.

World of Warcraft Tap ChatAug 01, 2010
By PC Gamer
The Sound Blaster World of Warcraft Tap Chat seems like a solid piece of hardware, even though it is much smaller in person than it appears online. I bought this product with notion that the only system requirements were a USB port and Windows 7, Vista or XP. Turns out the support for this item is almost non existent and it appears to only work if you have the Sound Blaster World of Warcraft Headset. This item does not come with any software and when installed it has a default setting to open up windows task manager, rendering it useless as a secondary option for push to talk etc.

trouble with not having a driverFeb 27, 2011
By Amazon Customer
Not plug and play. It doesn't have a very easy way to get the driver. The instructions to the website are not helpful. Had to email soundblaster and I was in a very bad place when I did, but the responded with a more specific location of the driver and I got to change the key and able to make Ctl Alt "Key" work.
Use this site, scan your download of course and tap chat away.
