The Quattro3 (Q3) is a high-quality conference speakerphone designed to be used in combination with a computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Quality and Effectiveness: I tested the Q3 with Skype, Google Hangouts, and attached to my smartphone and found it worked just as well as a traditional speakerphone in small or large rooms.
