White 3.5mm Microphone Earphone Socket USB 2.0 Sound Card Speaker Audio Adapter

4 out of 5 eggs Interesting, but it works 09/14/2016

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.

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.

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.
