[AG-TECH] Anybody used the SOLO USB microphone?

 I am testing a new US Robotics unit which I picked up for a bargain


The unit works quite well for 1 to 2 people around a laptop.
It is very small & light.
Echo cancelling works
It needs no drivers with XP, truly plug & play.
Automatically takes over all laptop sound in & out
Has local Mute & volume controls.

Here in UK it is less than half the price of the Duet.
The box says it's Skype approved also.

I am using them with some 'portable' PIG systems as they are cheap,
effective, and idiot proof.

Using them with skype, haven't tried ag as I can't get the ag setup
working but they're good bits of hardware. Used both the solo (home) and
pcs (work), good kit.
