5 out of 5 eggsFunction Exceeds Expectations ...

This review is from: SYBA SD-CM-UAUD71 USB Sound Adapter

Pros: I purchased this as replacement sound for a computer with an integrated sound card that failed. Not expecting much more than to be able to hear error messages and listen to informational videos this little bugger has out preformed and is able to provide me with a semi-rich sound and when paired with a decent set of speakers does very well.

I was also desperately short on PCI slots so the USB interface was just right for my needs.

Very easy to setup and install ... plug into USB port in a Windows 7 or better OS and let the magic happen.

Cons: none as of yet, but again I'm not expecting life altering sound. Just functional is what I wanted and this exceeded that level of expectation.

5 out of 5 eggs1.3 years and still going!

This review is from: SYBA SD-CM-UAUD71 USB Sound Adapter

Pros: works, reliable, and still going strong after 1.3 years on a windows 7 machine.

Cons: as others have noted it's a bit wide, and would likely cover other usb ports. I used a usb extension cord to move it out of the way

Other Thoughts: I am not an audiophile. I cannot comment on quality. For myself, it worked perfectly. I bought it to provide sound to my asus motherboard when the onboard died. This has never once given me problems in the 1 year, 4 months since I bought it. I just bought a new motherboard, so this will be retiring until needed again.

I recommend you buy a USB extension cord as well; too many people are breaking their device by leaving it attached to their computer tower and then accidentally bumping into it.

4 out of 5 eggsgood product

This review is from: SYBA SD-CM-UAUD71 USB Sound Adapter

Pros: It works as advertised. Plug and play, no drivers necessary. Mic and headset inputs work on PC, volume button and mic mute button all work well. I can use my Beats By Dre Studio headphone with integrated wire mic, intended for use with a cell phone (sound input and mic output combined on shared wire) on my PC. All I needed was to buy an extra Y-splitter to split the mic and audio outputs from the headset into this device, and I can use my headset for online gaming.

Cons: 1) The volume is kind of loud. At the lowest setting, it's just a little louder than comfortable.
2) I intended to use my Beats Studio for my PS3 as well, but the PS3 does not output the sound to this device, so I have to connect my headset to the TV. The mic on the device works fine, but I have to get a separate mic for it.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks

This review is from: SYBA SD-CM-UAUD71 USB Sound Adapter

Pros: Cheap, works without having to download any drivers. Have the option of using your speakers at the same time if you are on a laptop. The sound quality is decent.

Cons: Can stutter when playing youtube videos from chrome. I'm not 100% sure that it's not a software issue though so I won't complain too much.

Other Thoughts: I think that for a $10 usb sound card this is a great deal but don't expect to run high end speakers from this adapter.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked great for Hackintosh build

This review is from: SYBA SD-CM-UAUD71 USB Sound Adapter

Pros: These work great in a pinch if your Hackintosh audio simply will not be recognized.

Cons: It's a bit large for my taste, but there is also a smaller model that I will try next. No reason to deduct an egg that's for sure

Other Thoughts: I have done several Hackintosh builds but on my last two, the Realtek audio would not work, regardless of the kext I tried to use. This gave me the audio I needed, without requiring any setup. I would be comfortable shipping one of these to a remote client to 'repair' any audio issues they have in the future.

3 out of 5 eggsOk, cheap, but useful.

This review is from: SYBA SD-CM-UAUD71 USB Sound Adapter

Pros: Readable by OSX, and Windows without drivers or any other software. Easy install, just plug-and-play.

Cons: Not very high quality microphone input. OK quality output. Note that it just simulates 7.1 surround. It's not true 7.1.

Other Thoughts: For the price, it's a good deal. What can you expect out of a USB sound card for $10?

3 out of 5 eggsA few days later...

This review is from: SYBA SD-CM-UAUD71 USB Sound Adapter

Pros: USB connection works. So does volume control and mute.

Cons: Size of USB device blocks usage of multiple ports. Distortion is common, at times to the point where dialog is unintelligible. I checked the headset on another computer with the Sound Adapter and without and there was no fault with the headset. .I may have to look into purchasing another similar device.Some have mentioned that several USB devices connected at the same time would cause issues. The only other USB device plugged in is a Bluetooth receiver for the mouse.

Other Thoughts: Maybe you get what you pay for. Maybe there is substance to some negative reports. Always thought they were written by those who couldn't spell and didn't know how to either use, set up or purchased for the wrong purpose.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

This review is from: SYBA SD-CM-UAUD71 USB Sound Adapter

Pros: Needed to use headphone with microphone on laptop without mike jack (has built-in mike). Installed software of W7 - volume control and mute works on device. Don't know about 7.1 sound - don't think I have anything that has it or would know the difference if I heard it.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: Inexpensive, seems to do the job, durability - only time will tell.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Awesome, Easy Install

This review is from: SYBA SD-CM-UAUD71 USB Sound Adapter

Pros: Install was as easy as plugging it into the USB 2.0 port. No software install required for Windows XP Pro SP3. Inexpensive and good audio quality. Bought this to give my 8 yr old daughter sound again for her computer. She sheered off the integrated audio jack on her Pentium 4 3Ghz computer that I gave her as her own. I plugged this into a USB extension cable so that if she accidentally tugs at the headset or PC speakers again it will easily disconnect from USB connection. Fix then is just to plug back into USB extension cable. Has been working for almost a year now with no problems!!!

Cons: None
