Pros comfortable headset
Cons Will render useless any wireless device in range
Summary Once I added this device to my home office it managed to make useless any device within range including routers, print servers ect.
Pros Does what it intends to do
Cons Runs roughshod over any wireless device nearby
Summary While the phone itself does what it is supposed to -- it's also rather cost effective -- it's absolute disregard for "plays well with others" makes it an automatic box & return ship. Not only does the device completely jam the wireless Wi-Fi and the wireless Sonos system in our home when it is on a call, but it is meant to be a wireless bully by design.
The manufacturers instructions for wireless interference are to simply switch channels on every other wireless-enabled device in your home, rather than the other way around. And although the handset does offer a wireless channel-switching button, its design has no intention to do so for the working of other devices -- it's purely intended to switch frequencies for "offensive" purposes to get a clearer signal, any other device be damned.
So as a phone, you can't knock that it works. But don't dare try to run anything else on 2GHz nearby. Ironically, its best application seems to be for causing mischief and jamming the wireless signals of annoying neighbors.
Pros The phone is small
Cons Hard to remove from stand
Summary While my fingers are nimble enough to easily thread a needle, the design makes it hard to remove the phone from the stand in time to answer a call. Note that the cup in the stand is narrow at the base and widens at the top. This makes a gap at the top, between the sides of the phone and the stand, which is designed to let your fingers grab the sides of the phone. But the gap is only 1/8" to 1/4", which makes it hard to lift out in time to answer a call (you also need time to put on the headset). Basically one can only grasp the very top corners of the phone. Likewise, the top of the phone is lower than the top of the stand, so you cannot grab it from above. So if you wear your phone or leave it out of the stand all day this may not be a problem for you. But if you want to use the stand to keep your workspace neat and the phone charged, simply picking it up could be a hassle. Plantronics ought to redesign the stand so the phone projects well above it just like any other cordless unit.
Pros Great portability. Comfortable headset
Cons Interferes with my wireless router
Summary I love this phone. I also had the previous 900mhz model and made sure I stayed with the same product line once it went south. Unfortunately this 2.4ghz device completely shuts down my wireless router (including the wired connections) on a regular basis when making/taking calls. There is a channel select button, which generally resolves the problem for that call, but the specific channel can not be selected, leaving the reliability of my home network up to chance each time my phone rings.
If you do not have a wifi network I would recommend this phone, otherwise run away quickly.
Pros Compliment with the analog phone system at work which has speaker phone and voicemail. This system provide mobility, speed dial and hand-free.
