A microphone of solid quality, at a mostly reasonable price
Eddlicious, 15.01.2018
I've used the Rode NT-USB to play and record my singing and guitar playing at the same time, and for my first ever condenser microphone it has been a delight.

PROS:
+ The quality of sound is very good, with high pitched sounds not causing any distortion if you've got your audio settings in check
+ Microphone has an audio jack built in to it, so that you can listen to your own voice through a headset, which is practical for those learning to sing
+ Quite literally plug and play, with it only taking as long to get working as your computer takes to recognize it
+ I've had no complaints about background noise when used to converse with VOIP (Voice Over IP, voice chat - e.g. Skype)
+ Microphone's build is very robust, it being primarily made out of metal, yet comfortably weighed

CONS:
- The plastic stand is not quite heavy enough to support the microphone in most positions
- Microphone doesn't have its own gain and volume knobs, which limits the amount of adjustments you can make to its sound.

Overall the Rode NT-USB is a microphone of decent quality, at a relatively affordable price.

No more micro/voice complaints
cha*, 22.03.2021
This is a great microphone for both work and streaming/gaming. The sound is crystal clear and pleasant to listen to. The first reaction I received, without mentioning a new mic was "you sound crystal clear, what a difference..new mic?" Safe to say, this was an excellent purchase.

The microphone is well built and has some weight to it, It looks nice too. If I had to pick one con, it would be the plastic stand but this is not an issue at all. I do not believe this microphone has a mute option, but I must say I have not looked much into this as I use a stream deck to mute/unmute my mic.

Furthermore, this microphone is significantly larger than the rode usb mini. Something to bare in mind.

Before I made the purchase, I was looking at the Shure SM7B Microphone, which adds a bit more body to the voice; This is a very popular mic among streamers, but it also costs 2-3x the amount of the rode nt-usb and does not come with a stand (I think).

All in all, a great microphone for everyday use.

Cannot be used with iPad
Demi_A, 10.05.2021
It is a decent mic, the audio quality is good but unfortunately mine came with a defect as it gives a shriek feedback-like noise from the left ear when the headphones are plugged. I am sending it back.

Another thing is that it cannot be used with the iPad (mine is 2019) as advertised. Even though I bought the adapter also from here as advised, the iPad gives the error saying the equipment is taking too much power so it doesn't work.

Bought one for a friend and one for my own.
Danster, 22.08.2020
I first bought this microphone for an oversea-friend, to do some voice-over for a short animated film I was working on. She delivered nicely sounding voice-over, and this made me decide to buy one for myself to be used recording some software-related tutorials.
Since the pandemic it now is used on a daily base to communicate with colleagues, as we're all working from home. It might be overkill for this type of job, but I haven't heard any complains from colleagues about bad quality of sound.
The only drawback (might be an advantage, depending point of view) is that co-workers are reporting they are filled with delight each time they call me, hearing birds singing in my backyard, as I have the window open right behind me.
