I use it as a Skype rigner – C-Media CM108 Virtual 7.1-Surround USB 2.0 External Sound Card with Hardware Volume Control and Mute Reviews

Pros:
Good small external usb sound card that dosent require drivers under windows xp sp3. Comes with a driver disk that adds some funcionnality.
Cons:
When you use it without the included drivers, the mute and volume buttons controls the default sound card. So if this is not your default sound card the buttons are kind of useless.
Other:
I didnt want my skype phone to ring trough my computer speakers. I configured Skype to use this card for the ringer.. works great!
Bottomline:
Its a good card to use with skype anyway because of the mute and volume buttons.
