pretty bad with win 7
15 November 2012
Excerpt: this is a great mic dont get me wrong, but you will pull your hair out setting it up, i had to go through reinstalling it many times through the maintenance drivers section and then used driver genuis and load it in as microsoft usb headset to get it to work, quite the hassle.
Summary: If you are running Windows 7, this will not work. This is a known bug that is known to Logitech. It might affect Vista, too. In any case, unless you are running WinXP or earlier, I would look for something else.
Cons: Does not run on Windows 7 Design is a little clunky
Summary: I am running Windows 7 x64. Does the "pre-amplifier" function not work with that OS? I read that if you don't mind voiding your warranty you could open this up and reverse the soldering contacts to fix this issue. Can anyone confirm this as a fix?
Pros: Easy to hook up.
Cons: The mic only registers my voice when I am less than one inch away from it or I yell.
Summary: Not sure what happened, I have one of these mics I've owned for well over a year and it works great. Recently ordered one of these for a client, and its not even the same mic. Looks the same, but performance is not even comparable. I RMA'd to NewEgg thinking it was a fluke.
Pros: Older manufactured ones seem to work very well. I have one that is well over a year old, works great from well over 2 feet away on my desk.
Cons: New manufactured ones are total garbage. Have had two new ones in the past week, that you pretty much have to put your lips 1" from the mic for it to even remotely work.
Summary: Windows 7 64-Bit clean install, very fast build. Microphone properties Mic Level set to 100%, but when doing the speech test, it barely registers on the bar graph, towards the very bottom of the green area. I can't get it to go in the yellow or peak at red even when yelling directly into the mic.
Pros: Well. The green light turns on, and it records your voice- with a catch
Cons: You have to be RIGHT up to the mic for it to record acceptable volume. Check Logitech's support forums (wish I had) - this is a common problem. THey solve it by sending you another one with the same problem. I bought the mic to set on my desk and issue voice recognition commands for things like m...
