I recently picked up one of these and I'm really happy with it.  It
has decent preamps, which is why I bought it - it always seems like I'm
short a preamp channel or two when recording a band!  Its ability 
to be a USB audio device was a bonus, but a well-received one.  I've not
done any serious testing of it, but my experience is that it's quiet and
has decent A/D converters.  A real bargain!

On top of that, it will take either XLR or 1/4" inputs and provides
phantom power if needed.  It can run off a 9v battery, an AC adapter, or
a USB connection.  A lot of thought was given to how to make this 
device as useful as possible.
