AdditionalComments about the TravelMike: We haven't seen a product as innovative and exciting as this one in several years. In fact, only the basic TableMikes (3-in-1, 6-in-1 and 9-in-1) match this product in functionality. We have been working with prototypes of this device for more than 6 months and absolutely love using it with our laptop. For physicians that dictate in and out of an exam room, this product can easily fold down when on the move from room to room and when moving to the car, home or satellite office. It is so small that it can fit in your pocket or a small space within your computer case or portfolio. We find the overall quality, both in terms of build and functionality a solid 10 out of 10. The downsides? It's expensive. Also, although it does a superb job in canceling external noise, we wouldn't recommend using it in a room with loud competing noise. Mild to moderate noise it will handle fine.
