Pros: Physical build quality.
Cons: Could not get the software working. Probably compatibility issues with Windows 7. I could put more effort into fixing it, but based on reviews from other websites, I'm not about to try to succeed where so many others have failed.
Other Thoughts: I bought this hoping to get surround sound from my PS3 onto my PC 7.1 speakers. Too bad I'll never know if it works, since I couldn't even get it working with the computer itself. I installed the software and restarted. After that, an icon should have appeared in the system tray where I would be able to configure the sound box. There was no icon, so I decided to get more up to date drivers from the website. The ZIP file I downloaded appeared only to contain XP and Vista drivers. However, there was a Setup.exe that was the same software as on the CD. Maybe this software would be improved over the one I just installed. Well, there must be an incompatibility with Windows 7, since installing installing the software from the .exe file immediately crashed my computer. This is quite annoying considering the box this device came in said "Windows 7 Compatible."
I'll be returning this thing pronto.
