Physically, the Scarlett is built like a brick outhouse. Heavy and stout, it just feels of quality. If I had any minor nitpick for the unit, the only thing I can come up with is that the silver knobs are plastic; I would have preferred (and would have paid for) aluminum knobs for a superior tactile experience when turning the knobs. But, the plastic knobs do the job, and they look reasonably good, so there are really no issues here.
Finally, over the past few months, I've made heavy use of the Scarlett and have not experienced a single problem with it. My previous interfaces were (a) Mackie Blackjack, and (b) a Tascam US-100. The Mackie was very good -- and was built like a tank -- but was limited in expandability. The Tascam worked only for a single device and it only showed up as a generic "USB Codec" within OS X and Logic X. The Scarlett easily eclipses both of those interfaces in flexibility and native OS X and Logic X integration, and is the equal of the Mackie in terms of build quality.
I am one happy puppy, and have already recommended a smaller Scarlett to one of my band mates so that we can record and collaborate remotely. Despite this being my first Focusrite purchase, I am, needless to say, a total fan of Focusrite at this point. Definitely, a well-earned five star rating.
But every couple hours, randomly, the input or output lines turns into static robot noises until it is reset. This happens in the middle of games, of skype calls, and in the middle of recording sessions. Entire sessions of work have been turned into useless trash without my even knowing it until listening back later.
And thus, I contacted tech support.
And for months and months I got sent through every single hoop they could imagine. Every tweak, every test, beta driver updates, and everything else you could think of.
But today I draw the line. Today I am fed up with Focusrite. I am fed up with their attempts to blame everything on my numerous computers for interfering with their product. Their hardware is simply broken, and they refuse to admit this and replace it. Simple as that. I guess their outsourced support is just that cheap to pay by the hour.
I hope yours works great if you get it, because you are not going to get useful support if it isn't.
Do not buy one of these.
*It worked great for almost one week, then a loud droning sound started up and I spend hours upon hours trying to trouble shoot.
*I was given another cable and even bought two more to no avail.
*I borrowed another computer to test it on to find the same issues.
The person I was in contact with was nice but what follows is why I will never purchase a Focusrite again.
*Started the process to get it repaired...... It took almost a MONTH from my first email just to get the RMA, and cost me $13 to ship.
*I was never given updates during this time or contacted at all by American Music and Sound (the guys who would "repair" it) and just to get my RMA I had to hound the Focusrite person I originally talked to.
*Shipping was 7 days from me to them and was back in 14 days (including 7 days for shipping) So about 7 days in their shop.
*I set every back up.... and almost fell out of my chair. Not only was it NOT fixed the sound was louder and now just touching it caused it to skip like there was an issue with the power cable or the jack itself.
*I also apparently cannot return it and cannot afford to keep shipping it back just so they send it back still broken
This was a big buy for me and I am stunned that at $100 this spent most of its life not working, and now I'm out all this money.
I cannot recommend this product at all or this company.
