    Comments about MXL AC-406 uCHAT USB Desktop Communicator:

    This unit was purchased for group and personal web conferencing. The combination of mic and speaker in one unit, along with an input for connecting up to (4) external mics if desired, and an output for routing to headphones, makes it versatile and scalable. We tested it using Adobe Connect in a small conference room with 8 people, the other person connecting from a remote location using a Macbook Pro. The quality of the microphone is warm and clear and the high degree of input sensitivity is great for use in conferencing situations. The one knock I would give this unit is that the speaker has a bit less volume than would be desired, it sounds a bit "tinny" and it will distort easily if the person on the remote end does not adjust their input gain correctly. Otherwise, this is a great unit and highly recommended.

        Plug and Play worked as advertised. Picks up sound from a good distance (you don't have to hover over it). And the cable was a nice 9 ft length (for hitting the center of a conference table).
