THE GOOD
Easy set-up: Just plug it in, no drivers
Magnetic pop filter and heavy desk stand
Good amount of tilt and rotate adjustability on its stand
Sounds better than standard laptop mics and is on par with other standalone mics
The mute button is handy, and dual polar patterns provide flexibility for recording
Affordable
THE BAD
The build for the microphone module itself is somewhat cheap
Front-facing USB port is bad for cable management
Slightly wobbly magnetic pop filter
Knobs require more force to manipulate
Volume knob only adjusts headphone monitoring volume, not input gain
