my 2 cents. I use the M-Audio mobile pre with my laptop.

It is quite good for a 16 bit. It has a lower noise sound floor than some
so-called 24/96 recorders.

For someone who is incredibly cheap like me, and wants good sound it is hard
to beat.

I don't object to the size, it fits in my laptop case.

It uses USB power, so it only needs 1 chord.

Uses any 2 XLR mics, even has phantom power and a headphone jack.

I have found that it has none of the usual problems associated with USB
sound modules like digital dropout, or sound glitches. It must have a decent
buffer. Latency is settable, I use it on medium, and it is fine running full

I have been considering this one, but I have no expirience with it.

Looks very nice for the money; 24/96 portable.
