5 out of 5 eggsWork great

Pros: It works

Cons: It's plug and pray. Install the drivers that comes with it and it should be fine.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Optical audio quality

Pros: Bought this thinking I'd only get a slight improvement over the laptop's garbage sound since external stuff like burners and HDDs cost more, but nope. I ended up getting amazing quality in every way. So far, I've used optical SPDIF out, played the song "Tubular Bells - Mike Oldfield" with my 1010 watts speakers (DD Pro Logic II) cranked way up and had zero distortion and quality loss, I think it might of sounded even better than the sound card in my expensive gaming rig.

Cons: The only thing I'm worried about is the longevity of it. If the quality is this amazing, how long will it last before something makes sense as to why the cost is so low?

Other Thoughts: I will report back if something does go wrong with it or if I have something negative to say about it, till then, I couldn't possibly be happier with this little thing.

5 out of 5 eggsI use Windows7 and have this item for 7 months now!

Pros: I have bought two of these. One purchased 7 months ago and one bought for my Mom as a gift with her Christmas bundle from Newegg.com & DELL Direct Computers.

Cons: I only had an issue when trying to use this in an ASMedia usb 3.0 port; it worked initialy and then stopped working all together. Installed in native usb 2.0 port and there is no problems.

Other Thoughts: I have had the sound fail on me with computers in the past, before I became tech savvy. Since then I would never do without the old favorite PCI Creative Sound Blaster. But, these days you can't find them and the reliability in the reviews I have read of the newer pcie x1 Creative and ASUS products are frightful for such a very expensive add-on in todays marketplace. I have used C-Media in the beginning of 2005 with an old AMD 3400+ Campaq computer and it worked well and the driver was good, unlike anything from DYNEX which was garbage. Startech has brought me to a renewed respect for C-Media and this is a plug & play unit that does not require the disc for the C-Media6204 driver to be installed. Windows7 will set up the C-Media driver through Optional Updates automatically.

1 out of 5 eggsOk...lets not get hasty..

Pros: Ok...please take my former review with a grain of salt...This thing has lasted EXACTLY a week before it has started acting up. If your computer goes into "sleep" mode, this thing does not work without a re-boot. Star Tech "support" is a total joke. I don't think they comprehend ANY English. One day you plug your speakers into one port, then the next day, THAT port doesn't work, so you try the NEXT port and then that port works...Works good out of the box, but then quickly fails..

Cons: See above...Think I will go back to an internal sound card.

5 out of 5 eggsThis thing ROCKS !

Pros: Inexpensive, super easy to install, basically just plug and play. Loads drivers automatically, even without the disc. Very good sound on both surround and head phones. Much better than the standard "motherboard" sound card. Just keep in mind that this is not a $200+ sound card..But for the price, you can't beat it with a stick !

Cons: Honestly, I can't think of any..

5 out of 5 eggsGreat External Sound Card!

Pros: This product worked exactly what i needed it to do. I wanted to set up 5.1 Surround sound, and it did it with no problems. It was and still is a great product that i would recommend to anyone in need of a sound card for fairly cheap.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Great product! I'm going to use it for years!

3 out of 5 eggsNot exactly

Pros: Size and price

Cons: Did not transmit Dolby Digital 5.1 to home theater via optical cable.

Other Thoughts: Nice looking unit that will give you 7 channels from your laptop to your home theater system, however it is in Prologic only I wanted 5.1 (7.1) Dolby Digital and this won't do it. Returned.
