Summary: I bought it because Lync worked poorly with all my other devices -- this one works out of the box and easy controls. It's a good replacement for laptop speakers too, with excellent volume and clarity. Be careful... the microphone has amazing pickup. I was in a conference call and while we were waiting, stepped outside the house (with door open) went 15-20 feet into the yard and folks on the call heard me talking to my dog!
Summary: Sound quality is superb. Solidly built. Volume, mute, and disconnect buttons are on the top of the face of the speaker which makes using it a pleasure. LED indicators around the face of the speaker illuminate when the volume is adjusted. The usb cable is about 2 feet long and wraps around the device. They thought of everything. Well worth the money.
Excellent for Lync, Skype and other Audio/Video conferencing

Summary: The sound quality of this unit is excellent, and is on par with the quality of my Avaya 9611G desk phone when I'm less than 4 feet from it. It does a decent job with multiple users in the room as well, but everyone needs to be within 5 feet of it. I've used it with Microsoft Lync, Avaya One-X Communicator softphone, Vidyo, WebEx and Skype, and it worked excellent for all of them.
