We bought this to evaluate its suitability as a headset adapter for use with Skype on Macintosh. We found that it is inferior in all respects to a similar product by the same manufacturer, the Syba SD-CM-UAUD USB Stereo Audio Adapter, C-Media Chipset, RoHS. Avoid this 7.1 version and get the simpler one for the same price that lacks the chintzy buttons, has correct color coding, a smaller and shorter housing, better build quality, and is better identified in OS X.

As other commenters have noted, the exterior buttons are very flimsy and do feel like they could break with a strong push. Their only function is to send a signal to the computer to change the software volume level, which can also be easily done using the volume control in the operating system or via the keyboard if it has multimedia buttons. On many computers the USB ports are inaccessible anyway, so why bother adding these cheap buttons that weaken the whole case, when many people can't even reach them?

The jacks are color coded in yellow and black, not the standard pink and green that headset jacks use. For what possible reason? Yellow plastic was cheaper? They are also labeled with tiny icons that are very hard to tell apart, and the labels are not next to the jacks but on the top face with all the buttons.

The USB plug on our unit is angled off-center, again suggesting shoddy construction.

On the plus side - it does work as advertised. Although the device is identified as "Unknown USB Audio Device" by OS X, it does input and output sound fine, and loudly. The chipset is advertised on the box as the C-Media CM119, and it's a USB 2.0 device. The "virtual 7.

The adapter is as easy as it gets to use right out of the box and worked well as a substitute to my faulty laptop headphone jack, but the quality of the device itself is very poor. I have had mine for a month or so and it has fallen apart completely. Upon receipt, I noticed that the outer case was already separating, and within a couple of weeks the headphone contacts began to disconnect so I had to continually find the "sweet spot" to get any audio to come out of the headphones. As cheap as it was, it served as a good experiment but it is not something that I will waste my time or money on again.

This is currently shipping **withöut** the sofware CD indicated in the Product Description, which states:

"Package Includes:
1 x 7.1 Channel External USB Audio Sound Card Adapter --

Nor does the software seem to be available for download on the Internet.

I've read many of the reviews on this one, and I'm not disagreeing with them, but for what I'm using this for it works pretty well with a few caveats.

First of all, I'm using this on a PowerMac G4 Cube with an Apple Studio Display, and have only used the buttons on this a few times, so I haven't experienced the button failures that others have.

I'll try to outline the unit with my experience.

RECEIPT and UNBOXING:

Pretty standard packaging, nothing fancy here. The unit was well packaged and was received without damage. It was delivered pretty quickly and no shipping issues to note.

HARDWARE:

It feels pretty solid to me, the casing is a solid plastic. It uses a standard, full-size male USB connector to plug into the computer, or laptop. There are three buttons on the case, volume up, volume down, and mute. The buttons feel pretty solid to me, you don't have to apply a lot of pressure to actuate the buttons and I suspect some of the failures might be due to using too much pressure, but again I haven't used the buttons that much so I don't know how long they might work if used regularly.

There are two lights on the top of the unit, the green light indicates that sound is being transmitted, the red light seems to be an indicator for the microphone input which I have not used yet.

There are two 3.5mm inputs on the end of the unit, one is green for the audio output and the other is yellow for the microphone. Kind of odd to me since most mic inputs are colored red, but not really an issue.

This is advertised to transmit 7.1 channel surround sound, I don't know as I have it hooked up to a clock radio with stereo sound only, but it sounds plenty good in my experience.

I had this item for a few minutes and noticed that the sound was coming out of only one of the speakers. It started falling a part after that. Horrible Product. You get what you pay for.

I ordered this USB soundcard with some reservations after reading mixed reviews, some good, some excellent and some really sad experiences. Mine is a happy one when you consider the low price I paid. The sound quality might be better IF I get a better set of headphones or quality ear pieces. I purchased it for my 15" HP 505 Laptop which has crappy speakers and the headphones would barely get more volume than the speakers.

I have Windows Vista - and at first I was not getting any results when I plugged it in my LapTop. After tinkering with Vista's sound controls for playback - I simply made the USB soundcard my default source for speakers. A few other slight tweaks and after rebooting the sound was noticibly louder! Loud enough for me!!! I have no idea how good the mic input is, have not had an occasion to try it or worry with it. By the way - I am not real tech saavy on LapTops or PC's so its not too problematic if you have some experience with setting up software and doing small minor adjustments on your computer. Its not hard at all to set up IF you need to set it up. I understand some people simply plug it in with no problems whatsoever.

for less than $10 you cant expect super exotic sound or special effects or any of that. If more volume for your headphones is what you need then this is something you will want. The sound is not distorted or rattly - its fairly well clear. While it included a small driver install disk you dont need one if you run windows Vista or XP. It gets detected when you plug it in and installs the proper drivers. If not - you got the disk with drivers on it.

Last of all you can use it on your PC, its not LapTop exclusive. Useful if you wish you had mic and headset access on the front of your computer - if you have a USB port on the front - plug this USB soundcard in and you're good to go. Feels sturdy, no loose parts. Im happy with my purchase
