5.0 out of 5 stars Plug 'n' play and good quality sound 30 Mar 2011
By Felix
Verified Purchase
I bought this because my headphone jack had stopped working in my laptop.

It worked with Windows 7 as soon as I plugged it in (and changed the default sound device on the control panel).

I was worried about the sound quality having read reviews of other external sound cards, but this one sounds amazing! There is excellent output on all channels. If you're worried about sound quality, get this one, it won't disappoint! Plus it's so cheap!

2.0 out of 5 stars An answer to a problem but not great 15 Mar 2011
I bought VIGO USB because the headphone jack input on my macbook has gone after just 18 months use by a careful owner. The helpful chaps at Apple have mounted the £0.50 headphone input to a £400 logic board which no one will touch, only replace, so I needed another way to listen to stuff on the road. This does the job at a fraction of the repair cost but the sound is only OK and it is not very robust. You have to push the headphone jack in quite firmly to get it to work properly and then the casing threatens to fall apart. I will be going for the preventative tape repair suggested by other reviewers. So, if you have an emergency need like I do, its OK, but only OK.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stopped Working After a Few Weeks! 12 Sep 2012
By Ed
At first this product worked fine, it installed it's own drivers etc with no issue, then it suddenly stopped working for no apparent reason and wouldn't work with a different USB port or on a different computer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Does the job... or does it? 1 Aug 2012
By yar231
Verified Purchase
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.

Perhaps my mistake for going for the cheap option. This broke within two weeks, as the soldering inside is very poor. Read more
