For the small price, this little unit beats the big-priced sound boards hands down.
You can spend 8 times the cost of this unit and get less sound quality (pops, crackles, drop-outs) like I did. I've used this little gem for Online Karaoke, Internet Streaming as well as recording analog recordings to a digital format.
I'm simply thrilled I took a chance on this product.
As a professional broadcast engineer with decades of experience, I highly suggest you pick one of these up and forget about the expensive soundcards.

Purchased this unit as a simple interface to record out writing sessions in the warehouse. Set up included a single mic into the mixer which sent the signal to the U-CONTROL UCA222 into my laptop. Works great with simple apps such as Media Player or Media Monkey as well as records great into Audacity, good sound. I pulled up Fruity Loops Studio 8.0 though to play a track and sounded like crap, lots of skips and pops...(Not my system I have it tweaked very well). This is a driver issue! Only comes with standard USB driver no ASIO support for this unit. Still I would recommend to a friend for a simple and very portable interface for listening to basic media tracks.

Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222 USB Audio Interface:

I purchased this in an effort to accommodate the digital optical input of my Audison Bit Ten D sound processor in my car. It is the only sound card/USB-optical convertor that provides native system wide USB digital audio out on my Samsung Galaxy S4. I have a Fiio X3ii that provides higher bit rates up to DSD quality but only works with a limited set of apps for the phone. For the car this product works best because with the compatibility, it is worth sacrificing the small ding in audio quality.

      Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222 USB Audio Interface:

      Almost everything is right, except for the sound, that is not the best I have ever heard, but I'm blaming myself because I don't have high quality equipment, that is going to come later. I'm using the UCA222 to transfer vinyl records and tapes to digital, and I'm sure that quality is going to be there eventually.
      Next time I'll have to buy anything that you might sell, I'll check with you first before I make a purchase.
      Your service was fast and reliable.
      Thank you.

        Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222 USB Audio Interface:

        Pro's - better sound quality than Mic inputs on laptop. Inexpensive.

        Con's - one channel is slightly lower volume than the other. Plastic, seems cheap, but has not broken in over a year.

        I run headphone out from Mackie 12 channel into RCA input on the unit into USB on older laptop running XP and Widows 7. My tech told me not to buy "cause if you can get them to work they break right away". "I have had no problem in over a year". It is plastic and very light. "I wish it was more robust!" I am careful to keep the input level DOWN to not overdrive the unit. Set up was plug and play. I purchased to get better fidelity when doing live streams. It does that job well but I have to adjust slightly for balance. I have used it a couple times to record into Adobe 1.5 but not enough to rate performance. Un-aware of a better product in this price range.

          Excellent device. However, the device doesn't come with the boxed software shown in the item description and the product picture. This isn't a negative on the device itself but, rather the way the device is being described on the website.

            Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222 USB Audio Interface:

            The sound mini jack is not replacable on a laptop, yet many mini plugs are so cheaply made, that they can come apart in the mini jack. Straight USB converters are only as good as the soundcard in them. RCA patches, help, making for a clean sound.

            Eventhough I set the USB sound as default, and the USB ports to stay on at sleep mode, Windows 7 Pro shuts it off. And does not wake it back up. So I have to unplug and replug the USB each time, or have no sound.
