This review is from: StarTech MUYHSMFF 3.5mm 4 Pin to 2x 3 Pin 3.5mm Headset Splitter Adapter M/F M-F
Pros: It can be used to split a 4-position combo audio port into a 3-position (stereo) headphone port and a 2-position (mono) microphone port. Really! The (Newegg) title is misleading: the ground is common and so there is no way to split the other 3 (signal) positions into 2x2 independent signal positions. (For those born after 1965: 2x2=4; sorry for this stinker but once in a while I have to vent). If the mike socket is 3-port indeed, its 2 signal positions must be shorted in the splitter.
For the one-egg reviewers: if you receive the wrong product have it returned. And if you have connection problems try to figure out where that bad connection actually occurs. Startech does not make bad stuff but if you are so unlucky to receive a lemon just have it replaced. And do not pollute the reviews!
Cons: The icons on the separate black sockets are pretty much unreadable. So take apply a small piece of pink/green heat shrink on the mike/headphone socket.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Use it with an Intel DP45SG mobo and Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 processors. Tests turn out well compared to benchmarks. Fast enough to check my e-mail and make notes.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: I am not an expert memory tester/benchmarker. This is to let know that it works with the other components.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fits, works, quiet
