Summary: I have had this unit for many weeks now. I use it for MS Lync conference calls and it is just amazing, especially for decent price. Pros: -Easy to set-up -Easy to operate, extremely user friendly, no need to keep a little booklet for future reference (I had to do it with a previous brand) -Clarity of call is crystal clear. -Handy little carrying pouch. Cons: -None so far...
Summary: Well pleased with this speaker. Good quality sound. I purchased it to use with Microsoft Lync for meetings and would definitely recommend it to others. Easy to use and install. You can mute, volume up and down easily,versatile, and economically priced. It can also be used to listen to music on your computer. While not stereo quality, it gets the job done.
Summary: This speakerphone performs very well. if I had any complaints, it's that it picks up too much with the mic. So you have to be careful typing, mouse clicks, or setting things down on the table. But aside from that it was great. So much so that I upgraded to the 510 for Bluetooth. It's a decent cost difference so if you don't need a Bluetooth speakerphone, save yourself the money and get the 410. I dropped a star because the BT would make it perfect for me.
Summary: This thing is really great. The sound quality for being a desktop mic is quite good. It works well as a speakerphone in most voip apps as well. Skype and Mumble work fine with voice recognition. Teamspeak however does not work too good, and echos back (but teamspeak isn't too great to begin with). It has some service/drivers that integrate with various voice apps, you can enable/disable the ones you need so that the answer/hang up call buttons work.
Summary: What a great device! It literally sounds better than the expensive land line conference phone that was in the conference room I was using. Had it hooked up to my computer and people at the other end of the table could hear and when they spoke the people on the conference call could hear them clearly. Works great with Lync. Great sound and easy controls! Used to use a headset in my home office but now I just use this.
Summary: This speaker phone has drastically improved calling into meetings. I often have to call into team meetings, and now that I've left this with the team, I can finally hear all of them. It works well in small or medium groups. Recently I even used it to have a couple people join a workshop remotely. They reported that they could hear the presenters as well as the audience. Way way better than just using video chat on your computer or calling into a phone.
Summary: If you're looking for a conference speaker/microphone, look no further. This little device provides crisp clear audio, and the microphone picks up your voice without effort, this means you won't have to scream like a mad man when you're in a conference call. It's portable, and simple to use. Literally plug and play. I like the fact that it comes with a case. Definitely a 5 star product.
Summary: I've been using this for a few days now and I'm really impressed. When I plugged it in, it was recognized by Windows 7 and Microsoft Lync 2013 right away with no issues. I've used it a lot for Lync meetings and as a general purpose PC speaker (system sounds, Spotify, etc.) and it sounds great. Very clear, plenty of volume. I haven't experienced any echoes or other problems with the speakerphone function.
Very useful meeting speaker with no battery life issues.

Summary: I struggle to give a utilitarian device a five star rating. This is a USB powered speaker/microphone. It works well with MS Lync and the sound quality and volume are appropriate. The main advantage of this device is that it doesn't have to be recharged at part way through the day. I previously had a bluetooth plantroics device which would work for five hours and no more.
