My main objective for an external soundcard was to find something cheap that would have better sound quality than my crappy onboard realtek, which suffers from horrible interferance. This device worked as advertised, and it is cheap. It shows up under windows XP with no problem and no added driver, and the sound is nice and clean.

Also, the line-in is nice and clear and my friends can now understand what I'm saying without the 75Hz buzz from my graphics card.

Maybe this is mean, but I took off one star because I haven't been able to get it to work under linux. It seems to me that if the device is properly designed to the USB sound spec, then it would (as several other USB devices have, on the same comp). It shows up as an Alsa device, but has garbled sound. I've been told I can try overriding the playback frequency, but haven't done this yet.

I also tested it on an old comp (which might not even meet the specs for WinXP) with USB 1.1 and it actually works, though it pops occasionally. I don't recommend it for old comps.

I also have not tried the optical output.

The only reason why I don't give this one star is because it wasn't 100% broken.

It arrived in what looked like some promising packaging, but upon taking it out of the plastic I find that microphone port #2 is busted and misaligned; that goes to show a significant lack in quality control, but I was expecting at least one fault at this price.

Upon plugging it in, the computer (MSI GP60 / WIN7 64bit) seemed to recognize the sound card easily, however, 3 of the OUT ports were not working. I tried adjusting the settings but to no avail. I assumed it was a driver issue and tried to reinstall the driver from the CD that came with the soundcard. Well, not to my surprise, the CD was crap and the computer would not even see it in the drive. I then went onto the Sabrent website to download the drivers directly but even after that, the ports still would not function at all. I would just use the fiber optic cable, however, you only get 2.1 with that.

This purchase was a complete bust and I'm back to square one with an inability to use my surround sound system.
Frankly, I don't think Amazon should be allowing Sabrent to sell this **** on their site.

I would send it back but the return shipping costs just don't make it worth it whatsoever.

My final verdict:

DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT!

EDIT: I've dropped my review down from 2 Stars to 1 Star and if I could give it less than I certainly would. The product has officially "crapped out" recently and creates an unusual disconnect error with the computer that is horrendously annoying but fortunately fixable; the product received however is totally dead and the fact that it ever worked in the slightest degree is completely amazing to me as it was damaged when I had received it.

As somebody mentioned, it has a ton of options to configure. Good, but product now sits beside my speakers (5.1ch Philips) but not connected.

Suddenly, in the middle of a movie, the audio gets all cranky and static-y, the only way you can get back normal audio is to disconnect the USB connection and reconnect. What happens, though, is that your USB audio disappears while disconnected and all the players just don't get on. Either you have start watching all over the online-video or close the media center and reopen. Tried changing cables and all, but nope, no luck.

Really, is it worth that hassle?? Nope.

But otherwise, the device drivers install fine on vista without a problem. The software is good too, just that the noise factor didn't allow me to enjoy it for long.

Usage: barely a month.

May be because I bought a used item??

Oh and it doesn't have the name Sabrent on it ANYWHERE!!!!

1. No instructions. Company home site is no help.
2. Card has 10 plugs all identifiable by abbreviations. The abbreviations are not easily translatable. The abbreviations maybe from the German word. What is "C/B out"? "SS Out"? "HP Out" is headphones and "F-Out" is full out I guess. If you plug in the headphones, the sound is cut off through the F-Out plug. That means there is no monitoring.
3. The optical output plug worked for several hours. I do not know if it is the Sabrent card or the D-VAC converter that is the problem.
4. I sent an e-mail question to the Sabrent tech support without a reply. But it has only been 3 months so maybe they are still working on their answer.
5. If you play through computer speakers then the sound volume is sufficient, but if you plan to broadcast through a power amp to large speakers then you will need a good quality pre-amp. Let me stress the term "good quality". The microphone pre-amp on mixer boards are not powerful enough for good quality sound transmission.
6. I will have to replace this product with another external sound card.

I have an Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 motherboard and the on-board sound has always been an issue where it will pick up a variety of interference. I decided to look for a USB sound solution that would give me at least true 5.1 surround sound and that's when I came across this Sabrent unit. It was well below the price on the Creative USB soundcards so I decided to give it a try and am very happy that I did.

I plugged the unit into a USB slot and downloaded the latest drivers and installed them. Ran my optical cable to my surround speaker system and I was up and running. No more electronic interference and as of yet no system glitches when playing back audio at all. The sound quality is very good and I'd say a pretty substantial improvement over my motherboard's sound.

I tried the unit briefly with headphones and the sound was excellent with more than enough volume.

It's amazing at this price point to have both analog and digital outputs and if you still have a need for analog mic inputs you'll find two of them on this device. This item does include an optical cable, but it's very short so if you need more than a foot or two you'll want to order a longer cable.

The bottom line is I don't believe you can beat this for the price if you're looking for a USB soundcard. The setup was painless and the sound quality is excellent.
