I bought this sound card as my new HP pavilion laptop seems to have a terrible microphone. No matter what i tried (including plugging an external mic into the laptop) It was either to quiet or it distorted. After trying the stores demo model with the same results i wondered if an external soundcard would fix my issue.

This Lindy audio adapter was so cheap it was worth a try and I thought if it solves the issue i'll then look for decent sound card later (no point spending out on an expensive one for an experiment i thought)

But the Lindy does all i need and the sound from the microphone and the headphones it perfect so i have decided to stick with this now.

After the headphone jack on my laptop broke, I needed a new means of hooking my stereo up to my laptop. As a musician and music lover (passionate but strapped for cash), this was perfect. The headphone out gives a fantastic sound. Not mad keen on the preset GEQ settings on the software, but with a little playing around I found my perfect output sound. The key shifting effect on the software is fantastic, and loses practically no clarity. A definite recommendation.

I had an old style headset for the PC (Green jack for headphones and pink for mic (or visa-versa)) and was going to buy a new USB headset for my PS3. When I saw this recommended on a few PS3 forums I thought I'd give it a go as my old headset was still working fine and cost me a lot new. The Lindy USB Audio Adapter allows easy conversion of my headset to USB which is accepted as soon as it's plugged into my PS3 without any problems what so ever (I use it for DCUO and the only issues I've had is with the stability of the microphone system within the game which is a software issue and has nothing to do with the quality of the Lindy unit).
Highly recommend this for any PS3 user who wants to convert the old style jack headset.
Cannot comment if it's good for PC, but it does come with it's own driver CD, but I'm guessing it's plug and play as my PS3 worked fine without any need of driver update etc.
If this works out cheaper than buying a new headset, then BUY THIS... great litle piece of kit to have.

After reading up on improving the accuracy when using Dragon naturally speaking, I found out that USB audio often gives much better results than soundcards onboard motherboards (unless the soundcard happens to be a high-end one). I can happily report that by changing from my motherboard's onboard Realtek soundcard to using this USB one the quality score from Dragon naturally speaking (effectively the signal to noise ratio) has improved from not more than 15, to a reliable 20. Without really doing controled testing, it does seem that Dragon is a fair bit more accurate using the USB card. Frankly given what a significant difference it makes, I'm surprised that Dragon supply their standard and preferred additions with analogue microphones. Recommended for anybody using speech recognition software.

I was having several problems with the onboard sound of my computer. 'No mixer devices' no audio on websites and media player said something else was using the sound device, but I was getting sound on a couple of games which was the odd thing.

Well this device fixed all my problems and I now get perfect sound coming through, it may even sound better (but that could be because ive missed it)

As others have already reported, the drivers that come with this won't install on 64-bit Windows 7, giving the message "This platform isn't supported".

Yet it is advertised as being compatible with 64-bit systems.

Clearly it isn't!

Being impatient I just 'plugged & played' this adaptor as soon as it arrived & it worked fine. However, when I subsequently tried to install it from the mini-CD I got the 'not supported by this platform' notice. I didn't even know I had the 64-bit version. Anyway, I emailed Lindy UK and received a reply a couple of hours later saying (I copy & paste from the reply): 'I wouldn't install the included software / drivers, windows has its own built in for these and should work without any problems'. And it does. I've hardly used it yet so my four-star rating is a bit arbitrary but I wouldn't give it five stars because Lindy should be a bit more up front about this issue. However - it works!

Absolutely brilliant for voice recognition which I do all my letters on when working from home, having made a few essential adjustments to the audio controls, it will now make the process much easier and quicker on my netbook than it used to be and will repay the money spent many times over
