No Win 8 support

Summary: It will work with Win 8 if you are willing to do some homework and play some tricks, but don't install it on Win 8 computer and expect it to work properly. Here's how I made it work in Win8 (my memory recall), so please forgive the lack of exact file names.
Pros: This product works good for Skype conference calls, for improving the audio both ways (hearing & talking). Works with Win XP, Vista & Win 7.
Cons: Polycom officially does not support Windows 8 or 8.1 and they will rudely shut-you-down if you ask for any help with drivers for Win 8 or even mention you actually have it working with Win 8, but are having any problem. Sad, but true.
Awesome Travel Buddy .. Great speakerphone & mic...
4 October 2007
Summary: I've had this for a few days now -- I am a field engineer. I travel a lot, and have needs to communicate with colleagues, customers and partners during business hours. During the down time, I need to reach friends, family & relatives that are in a few different cities around the world.
Pros: * Crisp Audio & Clarity * Compact, Light and easy to carry with.
Cons: I'm being picky here.. Really no weaknesses. Would be great if it came with a dial pad. But really useful tool.
Summary: Overall, I am very pleased with this device due to its call quality and would recommend it to others. Software: Instructed to load from CD, however, CD did not load on autorun. Produced error: cannot find ‘file:///res/MainFrame.html’.
Pros: Call quality: minimal echo. Great! Powers up with only USB connection. USB cord is wrapped in internal enclosure when done. Headphone jack for more private conversations. Skype launch button.
Cons: Larger size than other Skype speakerphones. More expensive than other models. CD install could be more fluid. States that it only works with XP.
Summary: I've been using my laptop speaker for 4 years and after a Lync meeting with poor reception where I was repeating things over and over I decided to buy the polycom and never had reception since! Not sure why I didnt pick up one of these sooner.
Summary: This is simply a fantastic communicator - the clarity is exceptional. However, it doesn't always work and the Polycom homepage is worse than useless, telling you more about the features that telling you how to get it to work!
