Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not working at all I got this as a Christmas gift from my parents last year. I'm finally getting around to using it and it is not sending a signal to my receiver. I can see the blue light blinking on top of the box but there is no red light coming from the S/PDIF.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy install, no added software Was installing this on a Windows 2008 Server, and was concerned about having to install extra software that might cause some issues with the software we are currently using. Thankfully, the driver was already in Windows, so no added software, which meant that no ill effect to the system. Just, now we have sound. Very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from powerful and simple I broke my headphone jack on my laptop and this product fixed all my problems quickly with no effort other than to plug it in and change a couple of settings in the sound options. Very happy customer right here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than any internal audio card I have had one of these for over a year now. Best thing about this card is the ability to have more than one input working at the same time. Windows DRM since Vista has disabled the ability to have Line in and Microphone working at the same time. Since I have two computers, one connected to line in on this and a microphone for talking to friends it does exactly what I need. I have purchased several audio cards and spent hundreds on some that couldn't perform as well as this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as promised! This is an excellent audio addition with a 5.1 or 7.1 speaker set. I can work much longer when listening to music through this unit.
