I had ordered one of these but got shipped the non usb version by accident. I am told they are pretty much both the same so I figured I'd write a review here as well.
To start off, the description that is given by Behringer is totally wrong for this unit. they say it's an 8 channel. That is totally false. it is actually on a 6 channel unit. You get the (2) XLR mic inputs channel 1 & 2. Then you have two sets of stereo 1/4

I got this through Amazon Warehouse Deals (just a tiny meaningless mark on the side) so my judgement is based on the reduced price. The overall build quality is very good - with the exception of the phantom and 2-track buttons which feel cheap - and the sound quality is great for a home studio. The downsides are the headphones adaptor (it has a weird shape so unless your 3,5mm jack is very thin it won't fit) and the phantom power which is just +15v, not the usual 48. I only found this on the manual, not on the specs. If you need +48v phantom power you should get the Q802 model.
Still a great product, given that you get it for the right price.

The build quality is mediocre - it does feel cheap compared to my Mackie mixers. What makes me absolutely nuts is that Behringer didn't think to include a MUTE button on the inputs, which is really important when you are working several open mics at once and need to shut one down. The sound quality is fantastic and I use this puppy a fair bit for portable podcasting and livecasting (have attached pic of my setup). I'd recommend this if a missing mute feature isn't a deal-breaker.

Excellent replacement for my previous XenyxQ1200 (or something like that). My MPC 1.9.4 software and iMac OS El Capitan (10.11 I think?) recognize this as

Amazing value for the money! I bought this for my karaoke setup, and it is better than I had hoped. Very low noise, good controls, solid construction, and great feature set for the price. The best feature is the USB input/output, which can be used as a monitor channel or to record the main sound directly from the mixer. It even works in both directions at once! I originally wasn't going to buy the USB option, but now I'm very glad I did! Great product!

This mixer was great for my Shure SM7B.
Has phantom power so it was able to power the microphone correctly. Sadly it stopped working and I had to buy another one. However, because it was such a great mixer, I thought it was worth it.
I like that this mixer was able to have dual channel use for 2 separate audio devices and for multiple users to hear with headphones. It made for great use when friends were over and we would podcast for fun.

Hey this is a nice little unit I would buy it again. Easy set up works well and no problems.
Some people complain about the wobble on a counter or desk well fix it get the felt feet and mount them under the unit and that problem goes away. This also lifts the unit for better cooling a bit I believe.

This is a great mixer for the price. The only con is that it does not have an on/off switch. I use a switch panel on a rack so this wasn't an issue for me. I've been using Behringer for a long time. It's gets a wrap for being a
