      Comments about StarTech.com 7.1 USB Stereo Audio Adapter:

      The sound went out on my HP desktop computer. It is integrated in the motherboard so I couldn't install a plug in board. This was suggested as an alternative and I didn't expect it to work. But I plugged it into the USB port and my computer found it, installed the drivers, and it worked! It couldn't be easier!

        Comments about StarTech.com 7.1 USB Stereo Audio Adapter:

        Provides excellent audio quality from rap to metal. Symphonically, cresendos/decresendos are distinct and clear. 4 stars given on initial impressions. One star withheld, since it is new and time will tell if it deserves 5 stars for ruggedness.

            Comments about StarTech.com 7.1 USB Stereo Audio Adapter:

            Bought this product when my built-in sound card went out on my HP Pavilion with SRS Sound. This little sound card ROCKS!!!! Better sound than when the original sound card was new. The bass is amazing, have to turn down the bass so my Bose Wave Music System can handle it.... enough said. Way better than paying hundreds of dollars for a new motherboard or new laptop. The only disadvantages are that you have to be careful with it when it's in the USB port and you can't use the built-in speakers in your device, both things you'd expect from this type of sound card, but well worth the price to get me by until I can afford a new laptop.

            I bought this to listen to music at work. My computer stereo jacks were removed. So this did the trick, temporarily! It quit after 6 months of use. Buy a more reliable product!

                The microphone jack is not for stereo. You cannot take the stereo line out from your audio system and plug it into this adaptor. It does not provide a USB alternative to the stereo microphone jack in a laptop.

                  This is an excellent device if you for some reason have problems with your original audio port, mine had been broken and this was the perfect replacement saved me alot of money
