USB-6008 and LabVIEW SignalExpress

Subject: NI Low Cost USB-6008 with "LabVIEW SignalExpress LE" (not LabVIEW)
If you look at the USB-6008 spec on NI site (Keep in mind that the analog outputs are  software timed =set Signal Value at a time). 
This will prevent you from using SignalExpress to doing Continuous or NSamples on the outputs(which require a hardware timed USB daq).
If you need to do hardware timed task(for continous or NSample) type conditions look into NI USB M Series type USB daq.
Next I will discuss about LabVIEW SignalExpress and LabVIEW.
The reason  for the  (not LabVIEW) on the top is that the two products are very different, but the name of the data logger looks like you may be getting LabVIEW and SignalExpress (IT is not so).
"LabVIEW SignalExpressLE(lite edition)
"LabVIEW SignalExpress"                       = Application for datalogging/and datalogging related task(main focus)
"LabVIEW"                                           = A powerful graphical programming tool for creating Applications.
If someone tell you they only want to acquire data( LabVIEW Signal Express is a posibility)
If someone tells  you they need an application to acquire and  control consider a programming tool.
I would lean to the programming tool side for the ever popular "Oh, I need it to do this also, if it does that" request.
