Simple and effective – USB 2.0 Virtual 7.1 Channel Sound Card Adapter Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Doesn't require any drivers under Windows XP. Build seems fairly sturdy. Sound quality seems quite good.
Cons:
Couldn't get the volume buttons to work. The leds are quite bright and are a bit distracting in a dark room. But a little tape fixes that problem nicely
Other:
I bought this for a friend whose sound card had died. They plugged this one in, let Windows detect it and install native drivers, and they were off to the races. It gave their old computer some continued life, and made them happy to be able to hear their music again.
Bottomline:
Seems like a good choice if your computer's sound card is broken.
