In My Own Words:
I'm interested in how people think, or at least how they can start to think differently. How they feel, how they make sense of things, how they choose what they choose. And what that does for them.

Interests
Learning. Performance. Art. Perhaps they're all the same thing.

Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000  (Retail Packaging) by Microsoft
Good:
- Sound output is very clear and the ear covers insulate effectively from background noise
- Microphone records much richer sound that a similarly priced headset I used previously

Not so great
- Ear covers are quite snug so I'm quite relieved to take the thing off after an hour's videoconferencing.

Overall
- Seems great value for money to me. If it really mattered to me on a day-to-day basis I'd go out and spend £100 or more, but for an hour here and there once every couple of weeks, this suits me fine.

Haven't had any problems at all with this product. It connected easily, and seems to last well on a charge. I got it because I wanted to use the iPad as a surrogate laptop on a trip abroad.

- Although it fits onto the front of the iPad well, I'd rather have a soft cover so I don't have to be quite so cautious about putting it down on hard surfaces.
- I'd also like to be able to use the iPad just by flipping open rather than levering it… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply does the job, 5 May 2013
This little device does exactly what it's supposed to. I bought it to share a LAN connection between an XBox and the TV. It took no set up at all - plug into the mains and connect the input and the devices to any of the five ethernet sockets. Job done. It works.

I have no idea whether there are any contention issues because in practice we are never using both connections at the same time. I thought the logic of sharing the full capacity for different sets of packets made more sense than getting two pairs of splitters and in any case I think at the time it was cheaper.
