5How could this be any easier?Jun 26, 2014
By MadMike
Easy to install, windows 7 took over. Connecting to website, the download was selected; one click and the software was installed. Leaving only the setup of how you prefer to listen. The channel to bass was available for boosting purposed 5.1 or 2.1 systems. The sound is great. No better sound anywhere for the price and ease of use..

4Highly Effective Software Audio SolutionAug 13, 2013
By Daniel H. Fang
For starters, there was quite a few hiccups during the ordering and installation process that marred my experience.
But I consider the product to be well worth it as it performs much better than the previous gen X-Fi MB2.

On the ordering side, Amazon insisted on charging me for $17.99 delivery. Creative's website says digital download only, while Amazon's product description said DVD-ROM.

I received the download link and serial number via email the next day, while I waited for the "DVD-ROM"... Two days later I got a refund from Amazon for the delivery fee. I am not sure if this bug has been fixed yet.

On the installation side, the installer is not particularly bright. It does not check for previous gen software and obviously won't bother to remove or disable it. I assumed the installer would simply install itself over and replace X-Fi MB2. After it seemingly successfully installed and restarted Windows, X-Fi MB2 was still running!

Lesson learned, so I had to uninstall MB3. Restart, uninstall MB2. Restart. Install MB3 again, restart. Finally then I got X-Fi MB3 working as the primary sound output for my aging ASUS F8SN.

I was instantly amazed by the clarity and volume of the sound. MP3s sounded better, DVDs sounded better, even my Skype experience was better. I was surprised my old laptop can provide adequate volume to fill my living room and two adjacent bedrooms with music without noticeable distortion or hardware damage.

Even better, the UI looks more stylish. It has been updated to the new SBX persona. But, beware as like most software designed for Windows 8. The Vista/7 era widget is gone. So the user has to adjust the utility through the system tray.

4The Soft ware it self is grandFeb 22, 2014
By noname
my only Beef is how its activated over time sense i re install Windows a lot and SB offers no way to back up the activation for future clean installs on the same PC with the same Hard ware like MS does .. ( and YES MS has said time and time again we can back up our activation but at any time if there is a major hard ware update or we re install it on another PC, we will have to re activate.

SO why can't SB do some thing in the same way ? .. well that said ..I only give them four stars ofc the reasons the way they do activation but i do tell others to buy the this product but beware of the activation its a pain ... but its is really awesome soft ware and as far, i know works with just about any sound card but I only use sound blasters cards and have for years ,

5Working OKJan 22, 2014
By Victor L. Cook "VLCook"
I have been using the X-Fi Notebook (54mm Express Card), but decided that I would need that slot for the addition of two USB ports. The X-Fi MB3 is almost as good as the Notebook X-Fi. The MB3's quality will depend upon your MB's sound card. Mine is a Sigmatel and had the Sound Blaster MB for 32-bit installed when I bought the computer. I install a 64-bit system and is the reason I bought the Notebook X-Fi. At the time, there was no X-Fi software for the 64-bit system. When I saw this X-Fi MB3 software would also work with a 64-bit system, I thought I would give it a try.

It works go enough to use with external wired speakers.

5Really good audio improvementJan 21, 2014
By Amazon Customer "fungusmental"
This software improved my aging gaming computer's audio quality greatly. I was only expecting minor improvements at best, but after adjusting a few settings this software made a really big difference - both to games and music. It even made one game crash less, which was very surprising to say the least.

Highly recommended, but check compatibility information before purchase.
