Excerpt: I was nervous to purchase this item because it was 'special order', however it has worked exactly to it's specifications. It was cheapest through Office Depot by over $150! You need a specific line for this phone, and it works best if they call YOU instead of you calling out to access the conference feature, but you can use it both ways... The directions that come with the unit are VERY slim... basically just a picture, not written directions on how to use the unit.
Summary: Comments about Polycom VoiceStation 300 Conference Station*: You can’t beat this price! I own a webdesign company and we have a fairly huge client base scattered all over the world. Someone here always needs to talk with the client to make sure we are all on the same page so we decided to test it out. The sound quality is crystal clear, our conference room is huge and we are still able to hear and be heard up to 10 feet away.
Summary: Comments about Polycom VoiceStation 300 Conference Station*: It was likely because it was being used in a large conference room, but people on the other end of the call complained about garbled voices. Our experience with the product was poor. Testing in a smaller office it worked well.
Summary: We did a conference call with 12 people sitting along a rectangle table and this in the middle, the people at the other end could not hear anyone on my side if they were more than 6' away from this phone. I actually had to have people get up and change chairs in order to talk to the person on the other end.
