The problem with the 5720 is that there is not ENOUGH power amping the sound. Mine sounds flat; low-quality sound. Rumbling bass. Kind of like a cheap alarm clock-radio. I spoke with Alan from Sager, and his "hypothisis" was that the pentium m chip had to make a sacrafice with it's power becouse of the needy gpu and monitor. My solution is a pair of usb headphones by logitech or LTB or even Sennheiser. The Logitech's reviews are flawless and are only 40.00. The great thing about these are that you don't have to use your PCMCIA slot for sound (although the soudblaster card is great). No matter what laptop you have, a pair of powered usb headphones will ALWAYS sound better. The only drawback is if you hook the 5720 directly to your sound system. You would definately want the soundblaster then.
