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

Pros:
Plug and Play (but most will want to install a driver such as Asio4all) Feels very high quality Sounds amazing I use with Foobar 2000, Asio4All driver and Sony XBA3 headphones. My laptop headphone-out is awful, and now I can listen to music without any hiss The volume knob is a great addition over other entry level DACs Nice packaging
Cons:
Strangely, even though they rave about it being all aluminum, black, etc... they include a great USB cable. Small complaint but it doesn't match the otherwise good looks.
Other:
Price could be a little lower, but for me, buying from Deal Extreme is worth the couple of bucks difference from some no-name on Ebay.
Bottomline:
Buy it if you want high quality sound from your computer.
