Excerpt: When I was introduced in Skype I was on a mission to find a webcam and a microphone for my laptop, as it would enable me to communicate more clearly when contacting my relatives and friends that live abroad. One of my friends who also used Skype recommended the Logitech Desktop Microphone and so off I was to buy one.
Excerpt: If you are one of those who would like to keep in contact with long-distance friends and family, Logitech desktop microphone is a necessity. I have a desktop at home that I store most of the contact information and to keep in contact with friends. Since I found out about skype, it has been made so easy to talk to friends and family. However, my desktop doesn't have a bulit-in microphone and thus I had to buy one so that the other party can hear my voice.
Excerpt: === The product === This is a desktop stick style microphone with a 3.5mm jack by Logitech. The microphone can be stood along on a desktop, or anywhere else you like, or can be changed on to a smaller stand which can then be stuck on the side of a larger style monitor, however, as I am using a laptop I have nowhere really to stick this and just end up plugging it in when needed and standing it up on the bottom of my laptop.
Excerpt: For people who often make use of either audio recording tools or something like Skype on their computers, they might find that they need to invest in a microphone to get the most out of what they are doing. For example, when I have used Skype without using a microphone, I have found it can be very difficult for the other person to hear what you are saying, and you sound very tinny and distant. This would be even more important if you were recording something for work.
Excerpt: The Logitech Desktop Microphone is a great little bit of kit. I purchased mine for the bargain price of £10 from PC World, though you can get it for £13 or so online. To be honest I'd have easily paid anything up to £20 for it. The Logitech name is one which is pretty well known for input devices - certainly I had heard of it, and it's not generally a cheap make either.
Excerpt: Logitech Desktop Microphone I bought this microphone a while back for use on our other computer when talking on Skype to friends. If I remember rightly, I picked it up for about £7.00 online. This amount is a great amount to pay for a microphone like this, though does it match up to standards or is the age old phrase 'you get what you pay for' applied here? Logitech as far as I know has a good reputation.
good quality, good namebrand, but a bit pricey for a microphone.

Excerpt: Well I recently moved over to the UK and needless to say calling the states is expensive. So I decided to go with the ever popular Skype! I needed to get a good microphone, and webcam to use. I picked up this webcam online for pretty cheap it was about 25 pounds or so. Kind of expensive I thought for a microphone, especially when I saw the headset and microphone combos. But I like Logitech and know its a good brand. Well I got this home and set it up.
