Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snowball Microphone This was a present for Christmas for my son-in-law. He was doing online job interviews and frustrated with his old microphone cutting in and out. He loves his Blue Snowball! Now he can chat with friends online, make videos for his new job, and the quality is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super mic So i got this mic because my daughter is an aspiring singer... we got it. Set it up ( btw super easy that a 5 year old could do it And then started putting it thru the paces seeing what it could do... we sang om top of it... super close and loud enough for the neighbors to hear... then we took a 5 step count back and did it again... keep in mind my daughter was singing adel and i was belting out some Type O Negitive ( imma rocker ) and no joke the mic clearly picked both of us up like we were on different mics... im blown away at this point. Thisnis a super mic for a super price... absolutly love this little thing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for handling large-scale data transfers What is our primary use case? I use AWS Snowball to help with large-scale data transfers for my clients. One of them uses FortiGuard for security purposes and backup storage. Since shipping Snowball devices to Pakistan isn't allowed, I find it handy for them to securely transfer and store massive amounts of data without relying solely on internet connections, making the process faster and more efficient. What is most valuable? The most valuable features of AWS Snowball for me are its security measures and its flexibility. What needs improvement? I think AWS Snowball could improve by expanding its availability to more countries. Currently, it is limited, and in my case, FortiWeb isn't accessible in Pakistan due to shipping restrictions. A broader reach would enable more people to use and benefit from the solution. For how long have I used the solution? I have been using AWS Snowball for a year. What do I think about the stability of the solution? It is very stable. I would rate the stability as a nine out of ten. What do I think about the scalability of the solution? I would rate the scalability as a nine out of ten. My clients are mostly medium-sized businesses. How are customer service and support? The technical support is a ten out of ten. How would you rate customer service and support? Positive How was the initial setup? I would rate the easiness of the initial setup as an eight out of ten. The deployment time for AWS Snowball varies based on the project size. Simple projects can be done in-house, while complex ones may take days or even months, depending on the specific requirements and the company's needs. What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing? While AWS Snowball is a great product, it is very costly. What other advice do I have? Overall, I would rate AWS Snowball as a ten out of ten. Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds fantastic I'm using this for my Zoom calls each day. It was very easy to set up and the audio sounds great. I've also tested it with podcasting and I am really liking the quality of the audio it is capturing. The fact that I can also use it for an interview with an omni directional recording is really nice. The stand is quality. The cord is long enough to reach the computer easily and get placed well on my desk. I am a big fan!
