I own a laptop computer which has decent onboard sound capabilities, but I recently discovered that it only has one audio input -- a microphone jack -- which is mono, and therefore is not suitable for recording stereo sources. Due to the fact that there is no way to install a "real" sound card in it, I needed an external solution. This USB sound system from Creative fits the bill. It didn't make a dramatic -- or even noticable -- difference in the quality of the audio coming out of my speakers; however, it did allow me to digitize my old cassette tapes and vinyl records, which is the main reason I bought it. If your computer can't accomodate a real sound card and its audio abilities aren't good enough for what you need, this might be the solution you're looking for.

My Dell PC has an integrated soundcard, which provided mediocre-at-best sound quality whenever I tried to listen to Internet radio stations through my compact stereo system. I researched a whole slew of internal sound cards but read too many complaints about software glitches/slowdowns which made me balk at forking out $80 and up for them.
This USB external card does what I need perfectly: at a very reasonable price, I now get CD-quality sound from online music radio stations (the corporate FM stations here in Houston are just too pathetic for words) and without ever having to install any additional software on my PC, so zero noticeable resource drain. Sure if I ever decide to do surround sound (unlikely in my already-cramped home office) or do some cross-medium recording (unlikely due to my lack of time) I may regret not buying a more expensive card---but in the meantime I'm VERY happy with this sleek little baby. Simplicity, functionality, and cost-effectiveness...I couldn't ask for more!
And yeah, the sleek silver casing and flashing blue light are pretty cool too.
BTW, some awesome Net stations with zero commercials, awesome playlists, and free too: di.fm (the classical and modern jazz channels), kexp.org, radioparadise.com

I bought this unit simply as a replacement for my Dell laptop sound card, which was very noisy. What I got was much more.

I use my PC when I am learning new tunes on my guitar, so I usually have my sound card line out going to a small mixer where I mix in my guitar effects unit then ultimately out to a set of powered speakers. The MP3+ fits perfectly into this set up with no noise. I can also change my setup by dropping the mixer and running my guitar effects into the MP3+ line in. This allows me to record my own rhythms to play against.

An unexpected bonus was the fact that I can create tunes using Finale Guitar and then record them to mp3 format simply by selecting midi as the recording source in the media source software. Recording to mp3 is not an option in Finale Guitar, but with the MP3+ it becomes one.

The software that comes with this unit is great for folks like me. Wave Studio and MediaSource Player allow me to record from albums, mp3 players, cd players, XM radio...whatever and trim, fade, cut, loop, slow down, speed up etc.

Not having to deal with a power chord is icing on the cake. I highly recommend this unit to anyone that enjoys playing around with music as a hobby.

I've tried this ($), a M-audio mobile-pre USB ($), and a Tascam USB122 ($) on an emachine 5310 laptop. So far it's the best performer of the lot. The others (at more than 3 times the price, minimum) exhibited drop outs in record and playback audio, and had much quieter and distorted headphone outputs.
Pluses for this over the others also include a smaller, lighter housing, digital (on optical) I/O, dolby 5.1 pass through on optical.
minuses include a mono-only microphone input, no simultaneous digital input with analog monitoring at 44.1khz (seems fine at 48k--there's a mutually exclusive hardware switch governing this behavior). And the driver install puts and AOL trial icon on your desktop. Absolutely infuriating. Oh, and it's 16-bit only, and the timing drifts a bit when doing overdubs in a multitrack recorder like Adobe Audition (cool edit pro). I've yet to try this digitally, I suspect it might work better in this mode.
All that said, install was so easy XP didn't even need the drivers installed to recognize the card (albeit as generic usb audio) for basic operation. The drivers were only required to be able to select inputs for recording and for the tone shaping controls.
My intent for this device is as a tiny input in the tape loop of a stereo system--yep, the final nail in the coffin of my cassette deck : ), and maybe for some rudimentary field recordings using an external microphone preamp.
Bottom line, the thing sounds good, it's nice and small, and hey, it's only ($).

Although not as good, as the Creative Labs USB Sound Blaster Audigy2 External Sound Card, it gets the job done. My only problem is the lack of a SPDIF output for speaker systems. If you have a receiver that supports optical or even speakers it does transform a laptop into a stereo system. I only use it for input from games, and for that it works very well. Buy this instead of the Audigy2 if you already have optical speakers or a receiver that supports optical input.
