Have 5.1 analog output and digital (optical) input / output.
Great for using your laptop as a media center without a receiver.
I've build a XBMC media center on a Core2Duo with Intel GPU laptop. As I don't own a receiver yet to decode the 5.1 audio from digital signal on HDMI, I'm using the laptop to decode the audio and output it to the analogs outputs.
Build quality is not good. When I received it was not working (it kept connecting and disconnecting from USB).
Later I found that it had some bad solders on it's circuit. I remade the solders and now it working 100%.
Very good solution if you have a laptop that can't output optical digital signal OR 5.1 analog audio. If you own a PC with a free PCI slot you will probably find better (and cheapers) PCI audio cards.
Buy if you want 5.1 analog out or optical digital audio on your laptop.
