I bought this (like many others) because my headphone jack had broken on my laptop. As far as sound quality goes, it is par with my laptops sound card (as far as I can tell).
Pros: It works. Sound quality isn't bad.
Cons: The price is a bit steep in comparison to a few other usb audio drivers found on Amazon, but I decided to go with this logitech since it was a brand I knew.
The design of the USB is convenient and doesn't block other ports, but is also a major flaw. Due to the weight of it, if you leave it hanging it will continually disconnect and reconnect the driver (though not a major problem if you're on a flat surface).
The worst part about this device (mentioned a few times already) is that it cuts into static. And whenever that happens, I would have to plug and unplug the driver, and restart any application that was running if I want to hear sound on it again. It is very inconvenient for gaming.
Other Thoughts: It is good for a temporary replacement, but if you are looking for something long term, I'd look somewhere else. You might get better luck with the other brands that are offered.
