Thanks, OP.
Unfortunately, the Piano Keys are out of stock.

Anyone else having problems using the code? Trying to buy a pair of Aurvana Air (and it says they're eligible for the discount) but promo code won't apply to price at checkout.

I had a minidisc and then got a Sony Walkman that could read MP3's from a CD. Moved to a Creative Jukebox

Then ordered something exotic called an "iPod" from the US on something called eBay in 2002. They were some days.

Tried to apply the code to the Creative Live! Cam Connect HD that i saw on website reduced from 79.99 to 55.99
Codes didn't worked at the checkout page, except for the SUMMERSW35 that was applied to the original price of 79.99, bringing the price down to 51.99
Not a bad price for a webcam with onboard H.264 encoder , pity it does only 720p video

@offtopic : since many people cover the laptop webcam with paper/sticker, maybe the manufacturers will go back to laptops without webcams, or make a physical hardware button , to connect the webcam pins to motherboard when you need a video chat

Yeah, figured out it doesn't apply to already discounted prices - just the original RRP

It really is all about the quality of the digital analogue conversion.

If you are sending your sound to an external device digitally, like an AV AMP via HDMI or speakers/headset with Bluetooth, then a sound card will make no difference.

If you've analog speakers/headphones connected to the on board with 3.5mm jack then there will be likely some improvement if you use the analog output of the sound card instead. How much depends on how cheap the motherboard is and how good the speakers/headphones are.

If you've already a USB DAC it is the same thing effectively but a good soundcard will likely do a better job and have more outputs for 5.1 setups etc.

I had an issue where the webcam would start on my work laptop when I opened webex but I sorted that. Never had any other reason to cover them. Am I being naive or is everyone getting paranoid?
