I couldn't find the answer anywhere, so I called Startech. They said "they would get back to me" regarding Win7 64-bit compatibility. They never did, so I took the leap and bought it anyway. Bam! Worked first time out. I got this USB adapter because it has an optical Toslink IN, which is rare on a device like this. I'm transferring over old DAT tapes to WAV files.. and this works just handy-dandy-perfectly with my Win7 old DAT machine. Cheap, works, excellent.
I purchased this product to replace a normal consumer grade UPS I was using as a battery backup for my home server. I'm in the process of moving everything to a rack, so I figured I'd replace my UPS with a rack mount alternative in the process. The unit itself works great and I'm very happy with in. The only drawback (which I didn't find out until after my purchase) was that the SNMPWEBCARD accessory is poorly reviewed. I was drawn to this unit based on the idea that I would later add the SNMPWEBCARD, but now I'm having second thoughts. Nonetheless, I'm happy with my purchase.
I really appreciate APC's exchange program. Our previous unit was 9 years old and only replaced the batteries once. It was time for the batteries to be replaced again so I took advantage of the exchange program to get a new unit. The whole process was painless and worked perfectly.
Quick Note: My session timed out while writing my review and so I am now retyping everything... ...would have been nice had the page not lost everything (was literally on the last field, getting ready to hit submit) :( Short version: Have used a couple of APC UPSs for the last 5/6 years straight with two 24-hr/day servers running off them - they've run for over 40,000 hours and have performed fantastically, I attribute a lot of that to the UPSs doing their job. I weighed out getting a new UPS or just replacing the battery. Opted for the replacement and everything seems great so far. The replacement process was easy, though I should have taken more precaution when handling the batteries as I ended up with some acid on my fingers - nothing painful but I did have "rough" fingertips for 3-4 days after. All in all, everything is "just working" so I'm happy.
