Price, usb cable included
Very limited optical support under windows 8.1
Purchased this to fill a specific requirement for a USB digital audio output and in spite of several attempts at different settings and/or drivers it simply does not fully meet those requirements.

Output seems to be limited to 48Khz 2 channel PCM, and supporting software doesn't appear to have any control over the audio. There isn't even a balance option let alone working EQ.

I suspect the issue might be related to poor driver support under windows 8.0/8.1 but haven't tested under windows7 to verify. It should also be noted that this issue seems to be an issue with all USB c-media chip based audio products (even the higher end creative model is suspect).

Would have given it a 2 rating, but wasn't sure if it'd make it onto the site with that... Would definitely not purchase again.
