I've seen advertised external plug and play USB sound cards.

I know they are not high performance but are they, -

1) equal too/between, a low to medium performance PCI sound card?

2) better than current onboard sound cards?

I actually own Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit external sound card. Pretty cool little gadget. It has EAX HD support. Lots of ports on it to include mic in, phones, optical out, coax out, analog out and a DIN out. Sound Quality is actually better than you will be expecting. Not to mention that since it's outside an electrical noisy motherboard/case that benefits it. Not to say I would consider it over a PCI sound card. But for someone who wanted to hook the laptop up to a digital sound system it is acceptable. Read about it, do your research.
