Strengths of the product

Needed 5.1 on my laptop; this fit the bill $55, USB support for Win7.

Downloaded and installed beta Win7 drivers from Zalman no issues. Tried doing as previous poster suggested kept hanging my machine, opted for the beta choice.

Weaknesses of the product

Once you figure which cables to plug into the unit and configure your sound there is nothing to it, only a little confusion.

Additional Comments

I'd recommend it to alnyone looking for same.

Awesome OS support, good features.

Strengths of the product

- Individually controlled amplified analog outputs for fronts, rears, and center/sub.
- Windows 7 drivers worked Plug n play.
- Windows XP drivers (on provided CD) worked in Windows 7 and probably work in XP of course.
- Windows Vista drivers (on provided CD) worked even better.
- Coaxial / Optical digital output jack.
- Drivers provide DSP controls

Weaknesses of the product

- not much; maybe the large size compared to others but worth tradeoff.
- slightly confusing install process. (Use Setup.exe in root folder on provided CD if using Windows XP. Use Setup.exe in VISTA subfolder if you are on Windows Vista or 7)

Additional Comments

This is the probably the best among all the available USB sound cards. Plugged this into my Windows 7 laptop, it worked right away, but I didn't have 24 bit / 96 kHz playback so I tried installing drivers from CD but chose the XP drivers unknowingly. They are better than the stock Windows 7 drivers but still didn't enable 24 bit 96 kHz. So I installed the Vista drivers using Setup in the Vista subfolder that did the trick. It also installs a control panel item: ZM-RSCC V2 enabling more tweaks
