I also really did want to buy the Focusrite Saffire 6 USB, but
unfortunately it does not seem to work. See these discussions:

As far as my research goes, similar devices are:
– Presonus Audiobox
– M-Audio Fast Track Pro
– M-Audio Mobile Pre MK II (it's in my list, but I can't remember if
it works as flawlessly as the others)
– Lexicon Alpha/Lambda/Omega Studio

They are all selling for 100-200€ in Germany (apart from the Lexicon
Alpha, which is smaller and cheaper).
There is also the Roland (or Cakewalk or Edirol) UA-25(EX), which
seems to be a favourite for many people, but it is discontinued and
disappeared out of the big German stores only some days ago.

I am not decided yet which device to buy. Is there one device, that
has clearly better (or worse) quality than the others? Especially in
regard to the mic preamps? I heard only good of the Focusrite preamps,
so I'm quite sad that it does not work. (Looking at the Focusrite
Saffire Pro 40 as well, but I need a small USB device first for use
with my laptop.)
