    "Total Waste of Time"

    February 8, 2013  |   By 58-Hippie

    Version: Realtek High Definition Audio Codec (Windows Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8 64-bit) 2.68

    Pros

    None that I can see.

    Cons

    Installs junk software and alters browser home pages... and DOES NOT update the Codec or the Audio Software.

    Summary

    I'm currently using the Realtek HD Audio Manager... 6.0.1.5864 ... Audio Codec: ALC889A ... Direct X 11.0 .... It seems to be buggy now, after some recent system changes, so I thought I'd update it (the original install is from Nov-2009). I'm running MSW Vista Biz 64, so this looked like the answer. Despite the bad reviews I thought I knew better. I'm no PC Genius, but I'm smarter than the average bear (I've built or rebuilt at least 8 PC's since 1992). I'm convinced that this really is a total waste of time, and that this is just junk software.

    Updated on Feb 8, 2013

    Update... a few hours later.

    The Realtek Semiconductor Corp. web got me an update to v6.0.1.6662.... I have yet to see if this will help (one display bug still exists for the MSW Volume Control window).

    If this site allows links... for the Realtek ALC889A codec... try starting with:
    http://www.realtek.com.tw/products/productsView.aspx?Langid=1&PFid=28&Level=5&Conn=4&ProdID=173

    My MB is a Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H ... running an AMD Phenom X4 9750 Quad-Core Processor ... 4GB RAM

    Have Fun! ... Happy Computing!

    :-)

    September 25, 2012  |   By radion001

    Version: Realtek High Definition Audio Codec (Windows Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8 64-bit) 2.68

    Pros

    "Nice upgrade."

    November 12, 2011  |   By ronrwr26

    Version: Realtek High Definition Audio Codec (Windows Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8 64-bit) 2.65

    Pros

    Download from CNET was easy and went well. Installation of the upgrade worked fine. At start of install a dialog tells you there will be 2 reboots. I had to reboot 3 times... no problem. The improvement in sound quality is noticeable. Be sure to take the time to check all the SETTINGS incorporated into this new package. Quite a few nice additions there.

    Cons

    None. Nice improvement all around.

    Summary

    It's worth taking the time to download and install this new package. Thanks CNET and Realtek!

    "No sound after this update."

    October 16, 2011  |   By IanatCumbria

    Version: Realtek High Definition Audio Codec (Windows Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8 64-bit) 2.65

    Pros

    No pros for this update in my book. All cons.

    Cons

    My sound was fine until this update was automatically installed, now I don't have any. Reinstalling has not fixed it either.

    Summary

    Never update over a weekend, cause there will often be no techy help available until the Monday if you hit a snag.
