HP x-fi sound card?

#4
OEM - No manual, no support, no cables, probably no CD or a CD that may only install into an HP machine, no or minimal warantee.

Or it could be the identical card as the retail SB x-fi with an HP sticker glued on over the SB sticker. Only way to know for sure is to buy one and try it. For $55 it is tempting but be prepared to get a card that is not useable.

If you buy it post back and let us all know how it goes!

These cards can come from multiple sources:
-HP messed up and ordered too many and is now surplussing them.
-The manufacturer guessed wrong, made too many and HP doesn't want them.
-There is something wrong with them and HP quality control rejected the lot.
-An HP reseller went broke and they were sold at auction.
-A truck load was stolen and they are being fenced through ebay.

Well I bought a real X-FI instead, so I guess we will never know.
I just wanted to know if some people knew more info on these cards.

If its to cheap to be real.. then its most likely "cheap"

In the past, HP Creative cards were genuine and used generic SB drivers. But you're right, you'll almost certainly not get a driver disc. Easy solution, find a HP model that uses the card and download the driver from the support site.
