This review is from: White 3.5mm Microphone Earphone Socket USB 2.0 Sound Card Speaker Audio Adapter
Pros: My built in sound card on my otherwise very nice computer died. This gizmo was only 47 cents. It arrived obviously straight from China with no instructions. I plugged it in to a USB port, plugged my speakers into it, and voila, sound! Pretty slick.
Cons: It blinks a bright red led when working - will have to use some black tape.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: DELL Desktop Computer Inspiron 3650 Intel Core i5 6th Gen 6400 (2.7 GHz) 8 GB DDR3L 1 TB HDD Intel HD Graphics 530 Windows 7 Professional English 64-Bit with Windows 10 Pro License
Pros: If there were any, I'll never know.
Cons: Tried initial setup five times. Each time I clicked "set Up Homegroup, the installation froze and I had to do a hard shutdown and start over. Finally I skipped that step and then tried to join Homegroup from the Control Panel. I got "A Homegroup can not be set up on this computer." (It's a hard wired netbook on which I've used three other computers on that node with no problems.) I went to Dell Support and was told to download and run Dell Detect. I downloaded and tried to install it three times and all I got was the message "Please download and install a more recent version of this software." That's six hours wasted and I will not spend a day on the phone with Dell fixing a new computer.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cheap. Support didn't respond to two phone calls, but got back to an email with instructions to fix a failure to load the OS. It's a working Win 7 computer for $150.
Cons: Surprisingly slow for a 64 bit machine but my grandson won't know the difference until he experiences a different computer, which may be a while.
Other Thoughts: I ordered a second for a backup.READ FULL REVIEW
