Not sure why all the reviews are for the " Alesis RAL I/O2 Express grey" Amazon listing - it's the same product, but this is the listing I saw first.

This is a reasonably well built bit of kit. Yes, it's just plastic but, unless you're in the habit of dropping or standing on your gear, it'll be fine. It's got a useful selection of inputs and controls for most 2-channel recording - say a guitar/DI and mic, or a couple of mics. The supplied USB cable is a useful 1.8m (6ft) so you can spread your gear around.

The mic inputs are surprisingly clean - there's definitely a bit of noise at high gain, and a small amount of hash from the USB circuitry, but quite respectable given the price. The phantom power seems quite clean and ran 2 condenser mics just fine. The guitar input mode noise floor is relatively high (depends on pickup output level and impedance, so use a DI box or effects unit to buffer the signal to get the best out of it. With a lo impedance source the guitar/line inputs are also pretty clean.

I have not used the MIDI ports much, but I had no problems during a quick test with digital piano and keyboard.

As for software, I have not bothered with the bundled Cubase LE at all - I've used Cubase SX before, but I have other software now. It seems a bit of a cop-out not to supply proper ASIO drivers but rely on ASIO4ALL, a free 3rd-party driver. However, ASIO4ALL works just fine for me on WinXP and Win7/64bit so I'm happy enough.

The only area I can find to complain about is the headphones output. I used the IO2 with 32ohm phones and it had no bass at all.
