Using with Windows 7 it plugged in and worked straight away with no fuss. It did produce some white noise of its own so I had to turn down the levels in Windows mic properties to 20%. The PG42 USB produces a nice warm sound compared to my old dynamic mic (PG48) and this is evident using decent monitors or headphones. However, my old mic did have one feature that I wish the PG42 had - an on/off switch on the mic. I'd like to be able to switch it off at the mic when not in use without having to unplug the USB connection. It can, however, be muted in Windows using mic properties.
The included shock mount does the job well but I will have my eye on the rubber suspension bands as they might deteriorate over time.
