2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent sound. Plug and play, no muss no fuss.

Cons: Purchased 7-25-10 stopped working 1-8-11

Also would have been nice if this thing plugged right into USB instead of having a 3 foot USB cable.

Other Thoughts: A $35 dongle for use with laptops and the like should be more durable if it's going to be traveling. There is no external sign of damage so I assume it's just a bad solder connection has come lose

2 out of 5 eggsGood Sound, Horrible Hardware

Pros: The sound quality was a very nice change compared to standard sound. I used this because I wanted a quick switch audio card.

Cons: It has very smooth installation with the CD provided, but once you lose the CD, it is absolutely TERRIBLE. I downloaded the Driver and it just kept saying Please plug in the Audio Card, which I did about 400 times, and the bar kept moving and once it was at the 100% mark, it just failed. Steel Series REALLY needs to update their driver software. I have a useless piece of carp in my hands right now.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat sound for laptops

Pros: works perfectly. small. convenient. replaces a laptop built in sound card that wasn't great and caused static on connection. Would definitely recommend to anyone that is needing a headphone jack replacement.

Cons: none so far.

Other Thoughts: I don't use the microphone, so i don't know how well it works.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for laptop users

Pros: Very small. Greatly improved the sound quality when using both the Steelseries Siberia headphones, and my Creative 2.1 speakers. It is great for people like me which use laptops and do not have an option to upgrade their sound card.

Cons: For some reason my microphone randomly stops working, or people say that I start to sound "weird". I am not sure if this is caused by the sound card because I only have 1 microphone which could be starting to age.

Other Thoughts: Overall a great product, made me realize how much better my music can sound. I would recommend this to anyone that uses a laptop (or a desktop and doesn't want to mess with the internal hardware) and wants to improve their sound quality.

5 out of 5 eggsformer icemat

Pros: this does its job as a usb sound card very well, i can hear things in games that you don't hear with integrated sound. music also sounds really well with this jacked in.

i have the icemat version with an icemat siberia headset

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: there is no "hardware acceleration" with this like pci/pci-e cards that help games run smoother by processing the sound, but hey, it's usb!
