Summary: I don't use the microphone, so i don't know how well it works.
Pros: works perfectly. small. convenient. replaces a laptop built in sound card that wasn't great and caused static on connection. Would definitely recommend to anyone that is needing a headphone jack replacement.
Summary: Overall a great product, made me realize how much better my music can sound. I would recommend this to anyone that uses a laptop (or a desktop and doesn't want to mess with the internal hardware) and wants to improve their sound quality.
Pros: Very small. Greatly improved the sound quality when using both the Steelseries Siberia headphones, and my Creative 2.1 speakers. It is great for people like me which use laptops and do not have an option to upgrade their sound card.
Cons: For some reason my microphone randomly stops working, or people say that I start to sound "weird". I am not sure if this is caused by the sound card because I only have 1 microphone which could be starting to age.
Summary: there is no "hardware acceleration" with this like pci/pci-e cards that help games run smoother by processing the sound, but hey, it's usb!
Pros: this does its job as a usb sound card very well, i can hear things in games that you don't hear with integrated sound. music also sounds really well with this jacked in. i have the icemat version with an icemat siberia headset
Summary: Very good. Worth buying for gamers, a must buy. I love it. It's very good. Nice. As others have already commented it worth buying, definitely you'll see a huge difference, suitable for playing PS3 games or PC games as well.
