Nice and cheap – Virtual 5.1 Channel USB Sound Card Adapter - Black Reviews

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

Pros:
-Easy to use, just plugs into usb port -Recognized instantly on linux, haven't tried Windows yet but I expect the same -Build quality looks good, packaging was good too
Cons:
-A little wigglespace when inserted in usbport, so when there's tension on a cable it might get loose
Other:
Really happy with this purchase.
Bottomline:
I got two of these for different reasons: One is used as a replacement sound card for an old laptop I use. The soundcard broke down a couple of months ago, totally fried, and this little dongle allows me to have sound again, though not from the internal laptop speakers, sseing as they are directly wired to the soundcard. The other is to be used as a second soundcard on one of my other computers to use with music mixing software, to be able to prelisten to tracks before sending them to the main speakers.
