    Pros:

    Cons:
    None other than slow shipping time but well worth the wait for the price.

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Automatically recognized under windows and linux, no drivers needed. Getting it working might need a restart and messing with settings, especially if you have other audio devices as well. Good enough audio quality for general use although perhaps not for au...
    Cons:
    Build quality is so-so. The case might easily break if it falls on floor or goes through several insert-remnove cycles. Nothing...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    It is cheap and simple. Does what you need it for, for few money. Easy to configure for windows and Linux. I'm using it with a raspberry pi and works perfectly, with a Debian distribution.
    Cons:
    It is not the most beautiful one. and If you need it urgently it will take some weeks to arrive.
