Pros Size, portability, crisp sound and ease of use
Cons falls off visor easily, on/off button a bit hard to get to
Summary Bought this from QVC at 49.12. Doubted the quality of the Motorola name from past trouble but I must say, WOW. Great sound, easy to use out of the box. Great ring and great time of use on a charge. Good idea for everyone that uses a cell phone in the car.
Pros Easy pairing with iPhone. Speaker is decently loud though slightly tinny sounding. Small size, & portable.
Cons That BLUE FLASHING light. Don't say you weren't warned! Let's hope future releases will eliminate/address this!
Summary This paired with my iPhone very easily, but the BIGGEST complaint (and a reason why I'm only rating a 7) is that the blue flashing light is very annoying, and cannot be turned off. (This signifies that the unit is paired.) During the day, you don't notice it at all. But when I commute home every night, it is a pretty annoying distraction. Why make it so big & flashing, Motorola? I had read this in other user reviews and thought - no biggie, right? But driving at night, while this is clipped to your visor, it's very prominent, to say the least. I've now tucked the unit between the visor and the header so the light is less distracting, though now the speaker is slightly muffled. I consider that the better trade off! (At least the microphone is still pointing towards me.)
Overall, easy to use (at least with iPhone) and handy size is good.
But I'll say it again - that BLUE FLASHING light. Don't say you weren't warned! Let's hope future releases will eliminate/address this! Good luck.
Pros slim design
Cons I wish the volume could be louder
Summary Easy to pair,setup and use. I find that the volume at its highest setting is still too low. All in all , I like the unit and the safety and ease it provides while driving.
Pros -compact size
-good battery life
-allows you to drive without holding your mobile phone
Cons -typical speakerphone voice delay (especially when opening an incoming call)
-ambient road noise degrades voice quality (more of an environmental issue than manufacturing defect)
-volume controls could have better tactile feel
Summary The intended use for this device is obvious, and I wish that more motorists used these or at least the dorky-looking Bluetooth headsets while driving. I have my T305 paired with an inexpensive Samsung SCH-R430 MyShot phone, so it will work with whatver phone offers Bluetooth 2.0, and the pairing could not be easier.I'm not sure if it is is the interface with my inexpensive phone, but I simply stopped using this device after a few months of use. It works with my current phone (Samsung MyShot), but there was an annoying echo whenever I was on a call, even though the receiving end of the conversation could not detect it. I felt that I was yelling into the mic more than anything else, and I just lost interest in using it. Now I have a $60 paperweight in my glovebox.
For me, this device works best when you are not driving at highway speeds. On the highway (at least in my vehicle), people have a harder time hearing you and vice versa. This is primarily dependent on the acoustics in your vehicle. There is also a few second "delay" when answering an incoming call, which seems to be generally common in speakerphones. Most everyone I have spoken to while using this device say that they can hear me well, and I can hear them well...as well.
While I keep the volume at its fullest level, the rocker controls for the volume could have better tactile feel, but once you figure out which button lowers/raises the volume on the speakerphone, you should be okay. I see that a lot of people complain about the flashing blue LED on the device, which I do notice, but its not enough to gripe about it. Overall, it is a helpful little device.

Pros HANDS FREE BABY AND NOT IN EAR!
Cons Microphone quality is suspect
Summary My car was built BEFORE the Bluetooth-in-radio/head unit craze, and I wasn't about to install a different head-unit. And, in a fit of impulse-buying at CostCo, I immediately had to have one of these.
For me, hearing the caller is excellent -- the speaker is loud and clear. The buttons are easy to use, and I can use voice-dialing with by Blackberry.
The downside is that callers have a somewhat difficult time hearing me, often claiming that I sound as if I'm in a tunnel.
With all that being said, this was a bargain at $40, and since I lost my Blutooth headset, this has been a Godsend in the land of "heands-free-cell-phone-use-only" here in Chicago.
