I own one and have been using it with my Mac Mini and Garage Band 2 for about a month now. It works great for me! I've experienced no major issues, and the sound is clean and respectable. I can't speak for its performance in the Windows world, because my XP machine doesn't have a firewire port. On the Mac, there's no drivers to load. Literally plug and play.
Good bang for the buck, in my experience. Just understand that it is ONLY an interface device. It has no XLR inputs and no preamps. You'll need a mixer or other such device to provide those other options. Even so, the FCA202 and a small Behringer mixer will end up costing you a lot less than and other firewire audio interfce device out there on the market.
Very happy with it, I am.
