Summary: well, I wanted to try an Mbox after learning that my Tascam US-800 was not compatible with ProTools LE 8, so I gave it a whirl and as soon as you know it the Mbox started and the sound of my recordings were amazing. I usually do recording with clean vocals, guitar, and bass so it works well with all those. I might just get the Mbox with more inputs.
Summary: Downloaded the latest drivers from the website before I plugged it into my windows xp 32 bit desktop. Works flawless with Cakewalk Sonar producer. Great sound for vocals. I don't care about the bundled software. Phantom power is a plus.
Summary: Having ordered my soundcard two weeks ago, when it arrived last week I was overjoyed, It was one of the best buys of my life! I use the Mbox with Pro Tools LE8 and love it has two input which let me have a mic and a guitar constantly plugged in, It inputs with astounding quality and as long as your using it right you won't need to buy another untill you have a 32 input DAW in a professional studio! Pro's: It has brilliant sound quality.
