It's heavy and well made. Large speaker and quality microphone. No software to install, and has volume and mute buttons right on the unit. I've even used it to record podcast interviews. It's a tad on the bulky side if you're going to keep it in your laptop bag, but it feels like you could drop it down the stairs and it would keep working. It uses a standard mini USB cord, which is *not* hard wired into the unit which is a real plus in my book.
The Polycom CX100 is a little more portable (I have one of those too) but the sound quality on this Plantronic is a bit better. Highly recommended, especially if you're trying to still use your laptop speaker and mic for Skype or Office Communicator.

While I still like and use this speakerphone, the model I know recommend is the Jabra one here: Jabra Speak 410 Oc Speakerphone USB for Ms Lync It has better controls, is lighter weight, and the audio quality is slightly higher. See my full review there.
You can adjust the speaker loudness on the unit itself, up to ultra-loud- so if you're on hold, you can go about your business. And, it is a beautiful piece of equipment, much nicer than the picture conveys- black metal with a cool grill, solid, with blue backlighting. Love it!!!
Added 11/2012: I'm still using this, daily, couldn't do without it, have dropped it hundreds of times and it still works perfectly, it's SOLID. Also wanted to add that it has a fantastic omni-directional, echo-cancelling microphone, I use it to make voice recordings, it's top notch as a standalone mike.
Nevertheless, I'm very pleased with the product. Superb clarity. It was a cinch to set up the product on my Win7 PC.
Would buy again!
One word of caution: they have a VERY sensitive mic - one time we were in a conference call and someone whispered "I don't think that's going to work" and the customer heard it.
After getting the mic, a lot of those problems just disappeared. We could hear far more clearly as the external speaker's volume was louder and clearer than the computer's speakers. The mic on the device is also a lot more sensitive and picks up well from around 10-15 feet away. We do have some issues if it's not pointed towards those speaking (the mic is located in the rounded portion of the grill on the side,) but you just need to turn it towards you and it works perfectly. I'd love it if it had multiple mics and covered more of the room, but we just place the mic further back in larger meetings and make sure that it faces everyone and the other party is able to hear just fine. There doesn't appear to be any problem with feedback and the mic does an excellent job of cancelling out echos from the speaker.
I'm very pleased with this. It's expensive, but it's portable (less that 6 inches square and 2 inches high) and sounds great. It works perfectly with Skype - it transfers the control to it instantly without you having to do a thing. I haven't been able to get it to work with Google Talk or other programs, but I've honestly not tried that hard. I'm sure it would work if needed. A big plus is that it doesn't require any drivers to be downloaded to be installed on Windows - we've used it on XP and Vista without missing a beat as Windows already has them present.
Plantronics has always made higher end stuff that works well. I'm very happy with this and recommend it to any small business.
