Easy to use, but you might need a powered USB hub

on 12/13/2004

My Environment is a Dell Latitude CPi (Pentium III 650 MHz) running Windows XP SP2. Installation is a breeze! Just plug and play. There are drivers on the CD but are not required (atleast not with my environment). Its no 24-bit sound device, but digital optical I/O and analog composite RCA I/O make it a good value for the money (< $40). Problems: (1) Sounds like a whammy bar on an electric guitar--the pitch of midrange notes in music are bent severely. I added a powered USB hub and this problem went away. I did not have this problem on my IBM Thinkpad (no USB hub required). (2) Intermitent sound gaps--no sound at all for a fraction of a second. This problem also did not seem to reproduce on my IBM Thinkpad. It could be a problem with my Dell or a Dell quality issue. Not sure.

I bought one of these for my dad. He has an old PII-400Mhz machine with Win98, and he could never get a soundcard to work in it. The S.B. MP3+ did the trick perfectly. I was worried that an old machine like his wouldn't be compatible with a newer USB device like this, but so far so good, and I'm getting one for myself now! (For the price, it's worth it to free up a PCI slot in my box, AND be able to move my mic in to the front AND have a headphone jack that kills the speaker outs)
