Creative Labs X-Fi Fatal1ty Quality Issues.

While I had to take my Creative Labs X-Fi Fatal1ty to Fry's. Apparently Creative did not test it in systems with SCSI cards. Some nForce 4 boards also have problems. Basically what happenes is the system gives you huge static bursts when playing any sound and accessing SCSI disks. Personally I think I will wait until a new rev comes out before trying again. Below is the link to the thread.

1st. 2006 Blog entry....

Ok it's been a while & a lot has happened. So lets start with the most important thing. I am getting married some time in April. I have been with my fiancé for almost a year now & we are really happy. Now for the other stuff. I got my XBOX 360 December 23 2005 & all I have to say is WOW. It's one of the most well thought out machines I have ever seen. The announcement about the HD-DVD add-on yesterday is a little odd but all in all I am very happy with my purchase. I still have not had time to play with my X-Fi card much but hopefully I do soon. What else....oh yea the dual core optimizations in the latest nVidia drivers suck, I have disabled them for the time being. It also sounds like HP is getting close to releasing Windows Mobile 5 for the hx4700 & hx4705 soon. Honestly I can't wait for that. Speaking of my hx4705 I finally got myself a 1GB SanDisk Ultra II SD Plus for it. The little USB fold over is fragile but it is cool.

See you on XBOX Live!
