I was initially weary of whether to buy this mic until I started searching Youtube for unboxings and testing. After, I was very impressed and bought it straight away with express delivery yesterday, received it today.
Setup was a breeze and Windows 7 detected the microphone straight away, recording is and was just as easy. Rather than using the editing software that comes in the box with this I've been using Sony Vegas Pro (that video editing program has some nifty audio editing tools) and the sound is nice as well as crisp. With three options via the switch on the side of the mic to choose from, I find the best for podcasting and/or youtube is the -10 Decibel setting although it does tend to be quiet (this can be overcome by a little equalization in your editing software).
If you're intending to buy something that's better than your average PC microphone or for another purpose, it's an ideal replacement. I personally purchased this for my Youtube tutorials and such.

- Ideal replacement for
average PC/low quality microphones
- Comes with editing software
- Minor con with the -10 decibel being too low in volume, but easily fixed
- Good for Youtube and
Every penny, amazing quality
