I'm spoiled by ASIO devices on pc's and needed a spare to use "whenever". The only thing that bugs me so far is that is seems to use only windows default drivers and the link is for a generic ASIO driver. It could be just fine and maybe that's what you get for the price. Device manager and other system programs do not recognize it but do seem to use it effectively.
