Mic / Mixer setup

What do you guys think of the Behringer XENYX X1222USB USB Mixer?

Seems like a pretty good price for what you get.

USB 1 was basically meant for keyboards and mice, and did not have a lot of bandwidth. So USB 1 audio interfaces may well be pretty limited in their capabilities.

USB 2 and Firewire 400 both have approximately the same amount of bandwidth, 480Mb/s for USB2 and vs 400 Mb/s for Firewire. That's actually a lot of bandwidth, relatively speaking, so honestly, you're more likely to be limited by the device than the interface.
