I just want to chime in and say the UMC204HD along with the other "higher" models of UMC have their own ASIO drivers.

Do not use ASIO4ALL drivers as they won't work as well.

I believe the drivers are on the Berry website and cover XP to W10!

Exactly this, otherwise I wouldn't have bought it!

Enjoy it Arpangel! It's a fine little box and has served me well. Hopefully if more of us buy them SOS will do a review! ;)

Verily thou art forgiven son. Go in peace!

And thanks for suggesting hearing about latency etc, Dave. I'd love to see hard numbers! I tried to get them myself but couldn't work it out in Mixbus. I use Reaper now so maybe I could try again.

I just couldn't find a reason not to buy it, it seems to tick all boxes, and seems well spoken of by lots of people from different backgrounds. It's not going to be used for anything major, but even so, I'm sure it could stand comparison with a lot of other stuff that's more expensive, it's just the fact it's got Behringer written on it that would put some people off.

Agreed, I've had a couple bits and pieces by Behringer so far. The Vintager GM110 guitar amp I had was fantastic, and I regret getting rid of it.

I really do think they have an undeserved bad rep.

Yes they do, and it was deserved in the early years, but despite all of the ethical/moral reasons people have about the way they do business, I think we have to admit that they've become a very innovative company, and now, they have some good new products that are game changers. And the quality of there products is as good or better than anyone else's at a particular price point, so who on earth wouldn't at least consider their products? It makes no sense not to.
I have compressors, monitors, pedals, and now this interface, no problems from my previous purchases at all, and 100% reliable, despite not being looked after as much as they could be.

Not undeserved, but I do think that they are far better now and deserving of a cautiously open mind.

Yep, they do a lot of good stuff nowadays.

But avoid the DI120 like a plague!

Thanks, I've never had cause to use a DI, but if I do......

Got home, opened box, installed latest driver. Works fine with W10.
Build quality excellent , sound, more than excellent, better than a lot of more expensive things, or at least "as good" seems clearer, more open, than my Motu, it reminds me of my Focusrite Saffire sonically.
Latency, about 2.7ms but I haven't tweaked it yet.
All in all, I think it was a good choice.

I’m glad I’m not the only one that thinks the sound is more than excellent! Seems very crisp and clear. Absolutely no muddiness to my ears!
