The one I bough has failed from start. I got a replacement, but this has also started to develop a problem when it stays more than some minutes connected to PC (around 10 minutes).

Very satisfactory

Tim426, 19.06.2013
The Samson C03U has proved to be very easy to set up and use, with the USB drivers causing no compatibility issues when using with Audacity, Ableton Live 8 or Logic Express 8. Arguably its best facet is the number of features available - the switchable pickup patterns (omnidirectional, cardioid and figure of 8), 10dB pad and high-pass filter have all proved to be very useful. The microphone has produced clean and crisp results when used on male and female vocals, saxophones and acoustic guitar. The only issue to have arisen so far is the presence of a small amount of background noise, possibly the fault of the USB cable as opposed to the microphone itself. The desktop mic stand provided is usable but the use of a shockmount and boom stand is far more preferable.

Overall, this is a very reasonably priced condenser microphone and, thanks to the number of features offered, it easily stands out from other competitors in this price-bracket.
