Reviews and Problems with Sabrent USB-SND8 External Sound Box
Showing 1-6 of 6
Perfect solution for great sound without an internal card install.
21 November 2013
Summary: When I made the decision to purchase a small form factor desktop computer I sacrificed the ability to add an internal sound card. The system only has a Stereo-out jack so this seemed like the perfect solution (although cutting a hole in the side of the case for the sound card to stick out of would have been cheaper, this one is much more aesthetically pleasing). Installation was a breeze and drivers are included for Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8.
Summary: I recieved this product and it didn't work at all. I could not exchange it becuase Wal-Mart did not have any more. So I do not know if this is a good quality product or not. I'm going to say it is not and buy it elsewhere.
Summary: Product is working great. However, if you have a short run 30'-40' of ethernet, use about 50' - 60' of ethernet cable and loop the excess. On short runs the signal may be too strong and cause some erratic behavior. The little extra cable did the trick.
Summary: I wasn't sure what to expect with these adapters. I wanted to setup an inexpensive surveillence system on my home. I first plugged in my webcam to make sure that it would work on the computer. After installing the webcam I simply plug one of the USB entenders into my computer and plug the other USB extender into the webcam and connected about 90 feet of cat5 patch cable in between the extenders. It worked without any problems.
Summary: If you notice the product discription it does not specify that it is USB 2.0 compatable. Attempted to use over a distance of 30 foot with undependable results. Best bet is spend a few bucks more for a quality USB booster cable and extension.
