Excellent for the price, be aware of the limitations

It works fine under Windows 10 (newest update). I got it as an alternative to the UCA222, which did not work as seamlessly for me and I returned. This is Behringer's most basic U-Phoria series interface and if simplicity is what you want it delivers. It is of a cheaper build quality than the UMC202HD which costs twice as much, but it still has adequate sound quality for field purposes and I like its smaller size. One little thing took some getting used to--"direct monitor" blends the left and right signals into a mono output which is sent to phone jack and RCA outputs, though of course the stereo separation is maintained in the signals sent to and from the computer over the USB. This is no issue if you are recording and monitoring only one channel at a time, but if you are conveying stereo output from, say, a mixer, "direct output," does not reflect exactly what you are recording on the computer. It also works as a playback interface when used with Android devices and a USB adapter (the UCA222 did not). PS. I don't think this is the best interface if you want to convey a blended stereo signal off a mixer or such to the computer. Inputs 1 and 2 have different uses and they are not "matched"--for that you need a device with at least two matched inputs like the UMC202HD, 204HD, and up. Still, if you are doing multitrack recording one mono track at a time, or if you want to send your voice to the left and the instrument to right for blending later, and and the 48kHz sampling is the most you need, this is an awesome gizmo. I recommend it over the identically priced but buggy UCA222 as a budget interface for high quality personal recording.
