This review is from: SABRENT USB-SBCV USB 2.0 External 2.1 Surround Sound Adapter
Plug in and it works in OSX, Linux, Windows. LOUD if you want it. Gives you an extra audio output and input, separate from what you have now.
jacks are surface mount, which means you can't put any force on them, or they WILL unsolder. Re-soldering with leaded solder is possible, so if you can solder, it's not a bid deal. Otherwise, you've been warned- plug it in ONE time and leave it alone.
I took a star away for the flimsy design, as it's a minor hassle to repair the device (for me); others might take away 5 stars, as a solder joint failure takes away all utility.
For me, it's a minor hassle to re-solder the jack connections.
This device isn't going to replace a pro audio interface at a ten dollar price point.
If you have two video screens, you can now watch two movies with a separate sound track for each movie, at the same time by addition this device and two video player programs.
