Well the performance on windows is what sucks.. which I guess means, yes, crappy windows drivers.

RTL numbers was only a tiny part of my point.. even at say 256 buffer, they are at the bottom of the heap for how well they can run a large project with lots of plugins vs many other interfaces.

I bought their first ever interface, the white firewire one with DSP effects, and they dropped support a year later.. it wouldn't even work on snow leopard. That left a very sour taste in my mouth, however when I was looking for a small usb interface, I did consider them again until I found out about constant issues with drivers all around the web.
