    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    -green blinking led for activity. Never seen that before on a sound card.
    -Extremely cheap.
    -Small
    -No hiss when not playing

    Cons:

    -Small hiss when playing music files.

    OtherThoughts:

    - I use Vista and the generic microsoft drivers are taking care of a pleasant Plug and Play expresience. However the volume is unbelievable hard. If you dimm the volume to 1% in the windows mixer and winamp it's still to hard to hear my collega's talking.



    This is unworkable because some time windows/programs generates a short sound signal and you will grow deaf in the long run with this device (if you use an earphone).



    Din't test the micrphone.

    Bottomline:

    I bought one because my onboard Dell laptop generates lots of irritating hiss. Very annoying if the music is on a low volume or no music is playing at all.



    This little device's hasn't had that problem. But the sound quality when playing is not that good. I won't recommend it for permanent use.



    Hey for the price it's a bargain.
