Excellent sound quality, but poor software, and troubling cable
8 February 2011

The only thing to keep in mind is that despite prommising to release vista drivers since late 2006 (Polycom's first stated estimate for this was q4 2007, which then was extended to q4 2008), Polycom still has not done so (when ideally they ought to...
