The Creative Sound Blaster Z Sound Card ships in attractive packaging, making it very clear it is ‘Sound’ related. There is also a transparent window, so you can see some of the card inside.
The back of the box lists three key features; Audio Realism, Crystal Clear Communication and Advanced Home Entertainment Audio.
The soundcard is packaged carefully and is tied to a stiff cardboard tray. We do like the Red colour theme.
As you might expect, Creative include a CD for all the drivers and software, although of course, they can also be downloaded from their website. We would actually recommend you get the drivers direct from the website, as they may be updated.
One of the other key features of this Sound Blaster Z Sound Card is it comes with a ‘beamforming microphone’, as discussed earlier.
