Summary: Problems that I had were because there were 2 audio drivers - one is 5.1 and the other stereo. I use it with true 5.1 headphones - Roccat allows me to test each sound channel so it does work fully for 5.1. At full volume there is hiss, but it is negligible and could come from the laptop?
Summary: I have 2 of these for a duel DJ set up, 2 laptops, Exteranl harddrives and soundcards. All is well on one laptop but the other seems to have difficulty seeing the soundcard. After 3 or 4 start ups, extreme pain in the ass, it sometimes sees it but not always.
Summary: It does what it needs to - I have only used it in order to get a Line In port on a laptop which didn't have one - and it does this absolutely fine. It is smaller than it looks in the picture, so don't be put off by that.
Summary: I purchased this item after reading various reviews,which i took with a pinch of salt.After all they sell by the thousand,so a few bad reviews are to be expected.WRONG!Things started well,all installed & running within 15 mins.Then, click, no sound.
Summary: Some of the reviews on here are just silly, this external sound card for £20 does what it says on the tin, it works on a Windows Vista Laptop fine..(the drivers come on the disk), you can hook up 5.1 speaker systems to it, not sure if it supports 7.1 properly.
Summary: I generally agree with ShineBella - the instructions are all wrong, check the internet. Apart from that, there were no set up problems, The driver included is quite good too. In fact, when it wants to work the sound card works well too, but at roughly £20 it is just a cheap sound card and I'm not...
Summary: I needed a new soundcard as I had just purchased a 5.1 setup. As I already parted with alot of my hard earned money for the speakers I didn't want to pay much more for a soundcard. BIG mistake.....
