5 out of 5 eggsGreat, inexpensive, quick sound card solution!

Pros: This USB Sound card is very easy to install (honestly just plug it up and voila!) Sound works and it sounds great! Good for computers with damaged jacks or if you need multiple outputs. The removable cap is great for travel/portable use (cap actually goes on one way). Even comes with an USB extension if you don't have enough space around the USB ports.

Cons: Doesn't take an egg off but the size of this one is kind of big compared to others. Then again that is why the extension cable was included.

Other Thoughts: Used this to fix a customer's sound problem on their Windows XP machine. Just plugged it in and bam! No need to even use the install disc! Cool that they provided the installation CD just in case!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great, now I can quit being screamed at for gaming with the ambient mic on my laptop. :)

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Doesn't like the cheap usb hub I originally tried to plug it into. Not enough of a deal for me to try and figure out why.

5 out of 5 eggsworks great

Pros: Plug and Play with Win 8.1 on tablet with hub.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Like most Startech products, you get drivers (didn't need), a manual and a device that works. You pay a little more but it works and there is tech support (didn't need).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Sound Card for Old Box

Pros: Easy use, portability, and quality sound

Cons: Protrudes from ATX case USB ports with desktop machines, but easy enough to be careful.

Other Thoughts: Had an old P4 dual core 32 bit machine that did not have a working PCI slot available. This is a linux box for teaching my son command-line operation, so the sound card was not a heavy consideration, but ZI believe this dongle has comparable sound to many older on-board audio chips. Now my son can listen to Beethoven and Mozart while he does his homework.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks Ok

Pros: Loud enough and decent audio quality.

Cons: All it does in the 6 ports on the backplane is pops and hiss. Works ok in the front ports.

Other Thoughts: The SYBA works fine in either front or back and I ended up getting it cheaper.

2 out of 5 eggsIt worked mediocre for a month

Pros: When I plugged it into my computer, it made sound come out of my headphones

Cons: Build quality was quite low, when i plugged it into my computer it sounded really loud even with my volume set to one, and sometimes I would have to wiggle it around for it to work, it's really big and bulky, and after a month of use the USB part snapped off without any abuse. There are cheaper, better options on this website that I suggest you did.

3 out of 5 eggsNot the cheapest

Pros: These are good if you break off the 1/8" plugin going to your laptop. You can bypass expensive laptop repair.

Cons: Price is pretty good but I just ordered one from wm for less than fifteen, tax included. Free delivery to the store.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great....

Pros: Plug and play, sounds as good as any MP3 player.

Cons: Not as good of sound as on board or sound card but....see other.

Other Thoughts: This was used to replace on board audio that I just couldn't get to work after reloading XP and in that context it works perfect, sound quality is very good...not the best but for $20ish I am impressed. Plugged it into an XP system and in less than 1 min I again had sound!

5 out of 5 eggsBlown Away

Pros: Cheap.
Easy to set up.

Cons: None at this time.

Other Thoughts: I got this as a temp replacement for my Current sound card. It went out after a year of service and had to be sent in for replacement. And i must say i am very surprised at the quality of sound this little device puts out. I build computers for a living and this thing blows away most on board sound cards i have ever heard. I would buy it again.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Well with Dragon

Pros: This sound device works better than any other I have owned for dictating into Dragon Naturally Speaking. I dictated the only poem I recall, which includes the phrases "beweep my outcast state" and "bootless cries," and this sound device rendered it perfectly. That is a first for me. Listening to the recordings, there is no discernable electrical noise at all.

Cons: This device has only two sound quality settings: 16 bit, 44,100 Hz (CD Quality) and 16 bit, 48,000 Hz (DVD Quality). If you are planning to don your expensive headphones, kick back, and listen to your Patsy Cline collection for a few hours, you may be sorely disappointed in the sound quality. The higher speeds available on other sound devices apparently really do make a difference.

Other Thoughts: I had a hard time setting this device up. USB 2.0 ports would not recognize it, and it worked fitfully on USB 3.0 ports, dropping out every time the mic was turned off or every time a song changed on VLC Media Player. Only after I inserted the included USB extension cable into a USB 2.0 port, and attached the adapter to the cable, did it work well.
