5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says, and stays out the way, 28 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Behringer UCA222 U-Control Ultra-Low Latency 2 In/2 Out USB Audio Interface (Electronics)
First of all, I want to say this: if you're going to buy a product, read the entire description first. Although the item claims to offer a massive music software bundle (true), you do have to download it from Behringer's website (it's free).

Okay, onto the review. I recently bought the Behringer 802 mixer, and obviously I needed a way to connect it to my PC. The PC I have is a Dell Optiplex SFF 990 (i7-2600 processor). I looked around for PCI solutions, as I'd prefer to stick a card inside my PC... but since my PC is Small Form Factor, my choices were next to zero. So I had to choose either a USB or firewire solution (the latter isn't worth it at 5 times the cost of the USB solution).

I had a think about the issue of latency. It's one of those things that can be 'anticipated' by your software, so long as it's not terribly high. And for the price, I expect it to do at least a good if not great job. As it is, this USB Audio Interface does an excellent job. The latency is low, so this gadget does what it sets out to do.

Some reviewers have complained about it not being 32bit or whatever, but again - read the entire description before buying it - or do a Google search for reviews/specifications. It's unfair to rate this item (which is inexpensive) to something that's far better but costs far more. It's like saying a Ferrari is better than a Ford - which car can you afford to buy? Things should be compared to other items of a similar value or with similar features.

This item is perfect for:
* Beginner's home studio
* PC or Mac with limited or no internal connectivity (i.e. no space for PCI cards)
* Laptop users
* Portability - take this 'dongle' with you if need be

This item is NOT suitable for:
* Rich people - buy a power PC/Mac, and install an expensive (but very good) PCI audio interface
* Those who want the best - again, you'll need money for the best
* Anything above 'home studio' quality
* If you don't like the colour
