ASIO 2.0 and WDM drivers work great in NI Reaktor 5, Reason 2.5, Sonar 4, and all media players. With a single ensemble loaded in Reaktor 5, a buffer size of 128 samples (1ms latency!) is possible with my Pentium 4M 3.2gHz, 1Gb Ram, Sony Vaio laptop with no problems.

Sound quality is very good. Pretty flat but low bass is slightly pumped up and high treble is a little too flat with ATH-M30 headphones. Sounds slightly better than the M-Audio Duo USB, Delta 66 PCI w/ Omni I/O mixer, and Firewire Audiophile.

It's fragile though, looks like it could break in half easily.

This card is great whether you just want to hear music as clean as possible, or want to do some low-latency mixing/monitoring but don't like the breakout box options. The card is pretty rugged, survived many a trip in my laptop bags cramed with other junk. It has an attractive blue light and a wonderfully clean sound that will make you want to re-rip / encode your mp3 library to higher bitrates. VST performance is great thru ASIO on PCs running ableton. Haven't tried on a mac yet. only thing hold me back from a perfect score is that i had to try a few units in the store before we found one that worked flawlessly. (locating drivers) I don't know if that was an isolated case or maybe my computer just wasn't being nice to external devices that day... hmmm...
