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 wanted something small to pair-up with a laptop VST host for live performance. This couldn't be any easier. Plug it in, wait 20 seconds and voila!, a low-laency audio interface that's far superior to what you're likely to find built-in to your average laptop. You need a pair of RCA-to-XLR (or whatever your mixer wants). Sounds great, takes up zero space.

      Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222 USB Audio Interface:

      I got it to transfer vinyl albums to CD and it's done a good job, along with audacity software, which you have to download I might add. Would have given 5 stars but haven't found the "huge" bundle of included software that's advertised, unless it's in the audacity software itself. Not sure about those "hundreds" of instruments, haven't found those. As for the audacity download, it's an old version, which seems to be ok, but I uninstalled that and went to the audacity sight and downloaded the newest version which is what I'm using now.
      On the upside, I'm glad to now have a way of recording my own music, guitar and keyboards, as well as my original intent which was transferring vinyl to digital. By the way, the inputs and outputs are 1/8" RCA, in case you were wondering if they were 1/8" or 1/4".
      The audacity software is great in my opinion. You can make really nice crystal clear CD's if you use the tools, just google for instructions on the various tools for noise and crackle reduction, compression etc.

          Purchased to use with my new (Late 2016) MacBook Pro, which only has USB-C inputs. The output is a hair quieter than I'm used to, but with Audacity's envelope function in the "Tools Toolbar", I can get the levels exactly where I want them. Sound great, easy to use...Love it.

            I needed to update my BR-1180 which I have since 2001. When I buy and apply this product to use it with my laptop gave me the best and excellent results. More than that, my clients are very grateful and that's what we're looking for. Very easy and handy to use.

              I am using this with a small home recording studio running Ubuntu Studio. It was Plug-&-Play with zero issues. I was able to record via Audacity instantly with what seems like zero latency. I couldn't be happier, this little box did exactly what I wanted.

It has worked but I like this better. It is more straight forward and the sound is better. I am going to get a second one and sell the Soun....sters.

                  This product is awesome. I bought two of these to use with Virtual DJ and set it up so that each deck goes to one of these - then I sent the headphone output of Virtual DJ to the built-in soundcard on my laptop. I tried these little boxes out on both Windows 7 and Windows 8 and in all cases, the unit was immediately recognized and installed. I didn't need any driver software whatsoever. The sound quality is great. I used these for a gig last Saturday and was perfect !! For the price, this is a great deal and I highly recommend it.
