I was surprised at how well it worked after I adjusted the output level on the device. It's as lightweight as an empty cigar tube (almost like there's nothing inside of it) and feels a little cheezy, and the USB connection seems a little loose, but it works great. Simple plug and play. The sound quality is great.

The gain knob works well enough, but when using either a microphone or a DI box connected to a guitar, the noise/gain ratio is absolutely terrible. In order to reduce the noise to acceptable levels, the volume in applications is far too low. I have been very disappointed with this purchase. Not going to buy another interface without hands on testing beforehand, because this has been a nightmare.
