    "Love it!...Good mic...It wasn't until I started shooting video that I realized how limited my microphone on my DSLR was, so I purchased the RODE external mic that captures clear sound SO MUCH better and is so much more effective for my video....This is a good quality mic however, I would recommend the mic that has external batteries so you can use the microphone on more devices than just your camera."

    "Love it...Not Bad...I love this mic it works perfect, but if your buying it from bestbuy you might have issues with the threading at the bottom of the mic for aftermarket stands I had to swap 3 times until I decided to exchange the mic and get a keyboard....However, I ended up just buying a cheap $7 USB adapter that has an off/on power button so I can leave the microphone plugged in and just press the button on the adapter when I need to use it."

    "It's ok...love it...The microphone has decent quality sound, but make sure to turn your volume up to max though for input mic settings and make sure you adjust your distance to the mic as needed, I suppose depends on your surroundings as well....It's a little taller than I would like, and obviously from the picture on the box you can already see its kind of bulky, made to look vintage/sort of lol and I love the look :) I personally just like things a certain way and the microphone is something you don't use all the time."
