Works but bad hum from Mic – USB 3D Sound Adapter (Color Assorted) Reviews

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

Pros:
It was plug and play on XP on two notebooks - nothing to do but plug it in. When output audio happens green light on unit comes on. You can't go past the price.
Cons:
Can't use this for the Mic capability - there is a constant hum. I'd imagine because the componentry is so close and compact it's picking up hiss noise from itself. Even with an extension usb cable it still had bad humming (input only) - so not from being close to the computer.
Other:
Would be good if you needed to replace just the output.
Bottomline:
Don't buy this if you want to use this for voice conferencing or podcasts.
