I was originally going to gift this item, of course after I had a chance to play around, see how it worked. Well needless to say I will no longer be gifting it, because now that I've tested it, I decided it was way too nice and I want to keep it! My son and I were playing around with it on my MacBook recording Christmas songs. It was a lot of fun. I had a little trouble at first setting it up, but with the clear photos in the instructions I fingered it out in no time ! The microphone had a nice clear sound, and it is very eye pleasing. The handle is sleek, and has such a nice feel to it.
