Alternatives to Tascam US-800

My Tascam US-800 has served me (Fairly) well, however... I can no longer deal with its
terrible drivers. I know how my computer works, I've set it up right and confirmed on many
many occasions that the drivers for this interface bluescreen my laptop.
A great plus for this unit is the dual headphones
jacks. I really enjoy just having headphones in one and my Avantone MixCube (With
correctly made mono summing cable) in the other.
I can only find two other
interfaces with this dual jack setup...
The Lexicon IO-42 and M-Audio
Fast Track Ultra.
The Lexicon is VERY good looking, I love the way it looks!
Separate headphone jacks with separate volume knobs! Great design Overall. The
Ultra also seems nice but might be discontinued? (Not many stores seems to have it).
So three questions...
Does anyone have any more suggestions for an
interface with dual headphones jacks? Does anyone have experience with the two
specific interfaces I've listed? ...and if so... are they any good?
don't want to jump from one buggy product to another. If I could get a first hand
opinion of how the drivers (and other functions) on the others actually perform I would be
grateful. I assume the preamps on all of these units are basically equivalent given
the low price point? Nothing spectacular, but not entirely dreadful.
