I purchased this audio unit as an upgrade from a 2-in/2-out firewire box and could not be happier. The price alone is hard to ignore when trying to balance a studio budget while still getting the most functionality possible. This has allowed so many different possibilities in terms of recording setups and also performs like a dream on a minimal recording setup (Macbook Air with SSD). I'd had several bad experiences of some lower specification audio units not performing when multiple tracks are recorded simultaneously however with the Saffire Pro 40 I have tested it almost to capacity and not had any issues using ProTools 12.
My only gripe would be that the mixcontrol software that is needed to create different headphone mixes etc is not very intuitive and looks a little dated when sitting alongside Pro Tools 12 and various other modern software suites. Having said that, it works as specified and provides some great features that make this box a very strong tool for the home studio. Another plus is that the unit is rackable so it can be installed in either a fixed or mobile rack which would provide better protection both in studio and on location.
I use this in my home studio and for band practices and its great as the pre-amps are very nice, the give a good quality sound and the amount of inputs is just super. Midi in and out are included as well making things even more useful.
Pros: Its very solid piece of kit, has loads of inputs and good quality pre-amps that you would expect from Focusrite.
Cons: the only thing I found difficult was getting the software set up , but once set up its was fine. It has a fire wire connection (which is ok as I'm using a Mac with a firewire port ) so if your PC or laptop has no firewire port I'm not sure if you can use this, there may be adaptors available but check that out before buying.
