Most Favorable Review
Labtec 980183-0403 Silver Desk Mic 534
Labtec 980183-0403 Silver Desk Mic 534

Pros: Very good sound. A lot better quality than the other Labtec mics. I would choose this microphone over all other desk-mics. Okay sound pick-up.

Cons: Thin cable, like all Labtec mics. And again, okay sound pick-up. Only comes in one color.

Overall Review: There is some very minor wind sensitivity. This can easily be overcomed by talking at angle though. This mic is excellent for both chat clients AND recording. It truly is a great mic. The other Labtec mic is very good as well, yet this would definately be my choice. In my opinion, this is one of the best desk mic's I've seen in a while. Although not very popular, still a mic worth trying out. I'd really like it if it came in Black though.

Decent in well lit room

Rosewill  RCM-3201V  True 1.3 M Effective Pixels  USB  WebCam
Rosewill RCM-3201V True 1.3 M Effective Pixels USB WebCam

Pros: The red indicator and microphone quality is definitely a plus (for something of this calibur). With a good amount of light, the picture quality is decent. Motion blur is fairly minimal in moderate lighting conditions.

Cons: Unlike some of the upper-tier webcams, this cam requires A TON of light coming into the room to get a good quality image. Otherwise, the image quality is complete junk. The manual focus is also a bit of a hassle, but is to be expected of a cheaper webcam.

Overall Review: Overall, I personally believe that this webcam underperforms in moderate lighting conditions. If you have a well lit room (maybe something with a skylight, or glass house), I think it will do fairly well. Otherwise, I'd buy something with a bit more punch.

Great

LOGISYS Computer LT400PL 80mm Purple LED Case Cooling Fan
LOGISYS Computer LT400PL 80mm Purple LED Case Cooling Fan

Pros: Attractive LED. Keeps system 8° cooler than before. Recently purchased a second from Newegg.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Don't use the motherboard pin connector unless you turn automatic fan speed off, otherwise use the molex connector. The pin connector for some reason shorts out the fan, but if you use the molex connector everything should be fine. Plus, the molex maxes out the fan speed.

Good for recording!

Pros: See "Other Thoughts".

Cons: See "Other Thoughts".

Overall Review: I highly recommend this mic for recording purposes. The sound quality is excellent if you can find the right angle to talk. Like other users have pointed out, talking directly into the mic may cause some wind sensitivity, but directly speaking may give you the best volume levels. The mic's absolute best use, would be for podcasting and recording, as you can adjust many different factors of the recording, as opposed to live chat. In basic terms, it is THE best desk mic I have used. Like the other user said, it is best used for podcasting.

Great for podcasting!

Labtec 980183-0403 Silver Desk Mic 534

Pros: Excellent sound if situation is right.

Cons: Sounds windy if you talk too close.

Overall Review: I use this mic for podcasting. Before, I used a $30 mic that was good, but was really overpriced. That mic broke, so now I use this! And it's almost equal to the old one. Very good mic.
