        Easy to setup, this package contains everything to get started at a more affordable price than other options. Sure, you must learn the software to fully take advantage of it, but it took me one minute to do my first recording. It may take you longer to get used to it if you haven't used any recording application before. I love the heavy pedestal and the case, very convenient.

        Comments about Samson C03U Recording and Podcasting Package:

        I got this mic to handle excess voiceover work for a statewide television show; its power and pickup are studio-quality. Immediately upon plugin the driver installed and with less than 5 minutes of fiddling with the settings (omni/cardoid/fig8)I had it up and running. So easy and sturdy!

        Too bad they don't provide a diagram on how to put it all together, but that's not a terrible thing.

        The Sonar Cakewalk software, however, is a challenge. With no manual for operating it, I had to email the company. 5 days later they did send it to me via yousendit.com, so that was nice. However it is probably far more complex that I will ever need.

        Overall I give the C03U package (stand, shock absorber, cable, aluminum box) 5 stars and I am SO glad I got it.

          This mic is above and beyond what I was expecting. I am re-mastering and recording an old CD I had from the mid 90's. The ease of using and setting up this mic was fantastic. There are so many features I am glad I went with this microphone. It is definitely studio quality recording at a desktop publishing price.

            The product packaging and construction are very good. Sound good quality is not. It's muddled and just not crisp for a condenser. If you want quality voice capture, look elsewhere. I tested very cheap Olympus and Radioshack lavaliers and got better recordings with them than this mic.

                  Comments about Samson C03U Recording and Podcasting Package:

                  I am an actor who also does a lot of voice over work from a home studio. When I'm traveling, I also need the ability to record demos for consideration in V/O bookings. This mic is extremely portable, is extremely "plug and play" compatible with my laptop, and produces great sound. This is the perfect solution for a traveling V/O actor! The "SONAR" software that comes with the mic is a good match, but was not intuitive when it comes to configuring it and getting it to work with the mic. Fortunately, Samson is aware of the shortcomings of the software, and has many of the setup and configuration answers on their web site. I highly recommend anyone purchasing this great mic to check out the FAQ section on the Samson web site. Would I purchase another Samson mic? You bet I would!
