Buy the new Soundstation 2. It is much better then older models. With the right settings it works fine.

We often use the Polycom SoundStation in AG PIGs.  One caveat is you
need to purchase their Video Interconnect box to connect the sound
station to your sound card.  There also seems to be an impedance
mismatch which requires that you keep your inpout levels very low,
almost off.  Also, for the price I personally don't think the audio
quality is very good.  Polycom's audio seems to be tuned for use over
the phone which is much lower quality audio than the capabilities of AG.

My $0.02
