Maybe good for Internet calling, but not so much for speech recognition software

I work in IT, and often have to demonstrate / recommend products such as Dragon NaturallySpeaking / Dragon Dictate for people. I also use that program for my own work, and I wanted a better microphone for home use, to replace the one that I got free with an early version of Dragon back in 2005.
I have tried this Plantronics microphone on a Mac and two different PCs, and ensured that it was set up properly using Dragon's audio setup tools. In each case, the accuracy level was significantly lower than my old microphone. Therefore I'm going back to using the one that came free in Dragon's box all those years ago.
The Plantronics USB microphone, however, is a different story - I'd highly recommend spending a little more and buying that one instead.
