Summary: The headset works well. Plug it in and it works. It worked well with Rosetta Stone, which is why I got it. It is comfortable. Logitech says this is a noise canceling mic and it may actually cancel some noise, BUT, it makes lots of noise by itself. I have done a small amount of recording with it and there is quite a bit of hisssss. This is not something you can use for a quality recording, although the vocal probably will be intelligible.
Summary: I recently used this for the first time when communicating with a computer programmer in the UK via Skype. I was in the Dallas area and I was communicating with a programmer via e-mail about a project I needed done. We ended up screen sharing and talking via Skype and I used this headset during the duration of the call. The programmer said he could hear me very clearly. The sound quality was great on my end as well.
Does the job, but better headsets exist at this price point

Summary: My employer purchased this headset for everyone in our company so that we can use Skype instead of the phone to be in touch with our new European office. Having evaluated for a week, I am afraid that I cannot recommend it. While the headset is perfectly adequate for VOIP applications, it suffers from a number of significant flaws when compared to other headsets at this price point.
Summary: I bought this for gaming purposes to chat with my sister. The first day I used it no problems. After that my husband said it didn't work when he tried to use if for a work conference. When I tried it I couldn't get it to work either. I did some searching and one sight said to update windows. I did that and it worked again. For one day. Today I tried it again and my computer does not recognize it again. I tried to update again without results.

Summary: I got this headset after being poked fun at by my friends in Ventrilo. My other headset's mic just blew out so i was only able to hear them and not speak, resorting to typing back my responses... Pro: Overall this headset is not bad. What surprised me the most was the good construction and comfort when worn over many hours (barely noticeable - in fact you are more aware of the cable than the headset itself). I never got a complaint about the sound quality over Ventrilo.
Summary: WARNING: Do your research if you plan to use this item with Mac OS X and Skype - there seems to be an inherent problem with this combination. If you Google this you will find several forums mentioning "choppy" sound with Skype, although the headset seemingly works fine with all other software. This therefore suggests the problem is with Apple/Skype drivers not the headset per se, but it is very disappointing if that was your primary purpose in buying it (as mine was!).
Summary: I had absolutely no problems with this product until I tugged on the USB lead accidentally. It was a minor incident, as in a very small but sudden tug on the cable. After this, the product no longer worked. After contacting the retailer, I was advised that it was past the product guarantee of 7 days from purchase. Now looking for a more durable headset.
Summary: Comfortable. Sounds ok. Perfect for Skype and stuff like that. BUT.. there is currently a bug. Choppy audio with Mac OS X Lion. It doesn't occur with Snow Leopard. Example: [...] There are **DOZENS** of URLs from various forums referencing the exact same issue. Works fine under Windows, but not on Mac OS X Lion (10.7) Otherwise, it's just fine. Don't go returning it because of that issue. It's not entirely unusable, just not really ideal.
Summary: The USB plug works in some of my older computers, but not in a newer Lenovo thinkPad. it goes in 2/3 the way and then blocks, leaving a loose connection that comes and goes as the cable is moving around. Customer support insists that it is a standard USB plug and say it is not a known problem, but I read reviews and I know I am not the only one. All other USB devices uncluding another Logitech (now dead) headset used to work on my laptop.
