	To add my 2 cents, we them in use here on our Informatics nodes (one 
even rides around now on the mobile AG cart) and have often received 
compliments on how good the audio sounds. It's pick-up range isn't bad, 
but like any microphone you're going to have problems if distance varies 
greatly between one speaking participant and the next.
