3 out of 5 eggsOkay but distant beeping sound

Pros: When playing a song, audio is better than my integrated sound.
Buttons on the device allow for volume and mute.
LEDs indicate status of the device

Cons: When the music stops playing, I notice a very distant beeping sound that gradually fades away.

Other Thoughts: I used this to replace my integrated sound card for a couple months. A side-by-side comparison led me to the conclusion that the sound was better. However, after the switch, when audio stopped, I was often annoyed by a beeping sound that I thought was coming from another office. It wasn't until I moved offices and the beeping persisted that I discovered the culprit in this sound stick.

1 out of 5 eggsStay Away!!!

Pros: It connects and installs easily to Windows 7

Cons: The sound quality is horrible, it has an insane amount of static through the headphones. It says 7.1 Channels but all of the emphasis is on the Virtual because it must be virtually 7.1 channels to them but to me not even remotely close.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this product. STAY AWAY from this at all costs.

5 out of 5 eggsNeat little device

Pros: Works as advertised, I bent mine in half accidentally putting to much stress on it with other cables and it STILL WORKED. Originally I bought it because the sound card on my pc went out.

Cons: Don't use it anymore because I had to end up reimaging my pc anyway so I got the sound card working again, and since I don't use it, I lost it somewhere in this house lol

5 out of 5 eggsStarTech Virtual 7.1 USB Audio Adapter

Pros: small, works great

Cons: none yet as of 1 week

Other Thoughts: I received this external sound card 3 days ago and it is working as I expected it to. The audio quality is clear and good on my headphones with no static or any other problems. On a Mac be sure to go to System Preferences and change the output choice to this device.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's the least expensive.

Cons: It breaks really easily, after a couple of months of having this card in my school, the adapter broke into pieces. Its really cheap. But you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend u buy it.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Works like I wanted it to. Takes stress off of my sound card and makes my mic quality better. Installed instantly on my Windows 7 machine and I've had no problems with software.

Cons: It is a little wide, so if you have two close USBs, it might block the other one.
