I bought this so I could playback audio on my HP Microserver. The product was sealed in my arch nemesis : plastic packaging, though thankfully I already had some scissors so opening it was a breeze. After neglecting to read the instructions, I simply plugged it in along with an audio jack to my speakers and I could hear sound! Great!
Initially I was pretty happy with this product, apart from the connector which felt a bit flimsy, and concluded if you are going to be plugging in and removing a lot of audio cables from this directly plugged into a usb port, it's probably going to break within a few weeks.
A few weeks later, I decided to finally get around to playing a game. To my horror I found the sound wasn't working at all... which left me a bit dumbfounded to say the least, as I hadn't even moved the stick or the audio cable. Upon moving the stick around ports it suddenly started working again, though I noticed I was only getting mono sound. After fiddling around with the cable a bit more I suddenly got stereo sound.
Safe to say, while I was initially impressed, after experiencing the long-term reliability of this product - or rather the lack of it - I cannot recommend it.
