General What is your overall opinion of this product? Excellent choice for most uses. It has all the connections you could want, both analog and digital. The converters sound very good. My only gripe is that the levels are sensitive to peaks and tend to show "overload" too often, even when there isn't any. The Main Output is on the weak side. But the headphone outputs are strong, and having separate controls for two is great. All in all it's solid performer. But not on the level of high end Motu Focusrite units. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How well are the controls and connections laid out? It wasn't bad, compared to other units I've had. For MAC, there's no software to install, which is convenient. The manual is almost useless. And it doesn't tell you that when you want to switch from USB to FireWire you have to hold the Digital button for about 5 seconds after it powers on, not just until it powers on. After that you're good to go. Note: The unit will stay in whichever mode you chose (USB or FireWire) even after you put your computer to sleep and wake up again. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? As stated above: Connection options are excellent. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? As usual with Behringer, you get a lot of features for the money. It's just not of the same quality as same other brands, but better than some.
I Love this thing

I have to say everything else in this price range is either portable or just not up to speed this product i say beats everything in its price range.
