Summary: I bought this phone to allow me to communicate with home while on the move. I use both Mac and PC so this was a must . I had been using a bluetooth headset with Skype but this proved troublesome. Now I have this headset my troubles have all gone, sound is great and the way it interfaces with skype and controls the app is cool, meaning you don't need to press the keyboard on the mac. With Skype you can also call uk and europe landlines for only a few pence per month.
Excerpt: After trying a few other phones with skype (with little success), I found the Ipevo Free-1. It is at a bargain price, and provides you with great features, such as a list function and an alphabetical search through your skype contacts. I thought it was going to be a lot bigger, but it's not really bigger than a small ruler, and its design is contemporary and stylish. I wanted a voip phone that cleared up the sound on skype - this almost eliminates the echo.
Pros: Small, compact, great sound, ease of use, great value for money
Summary: I love the looks of the Ipevo USB phone. It is light and easy to operate and has quite a long usb cable. The most outstanding quality of this phone is the sound quality !!. It sounds even better than a regular phone. This phone is a must for any Skype user !!!!.
Summary: I recently ordered 2 of the Free-1 phones to use with Skype. I made the order on the 16th January, I received the parcel in the afternoon the next day. The phone has exceeded my expectations - it has fantastic value for money and the sound quality is great. The quality of service from liGo is excellent, I couldn't have asked for more. My purchase was worthwhile to say the least and I intend to continue purchasing from the site in the future.
Excerpt: Ok, so I wanted to get stuck into the Skype revolution. The intense lure of free phone calls is something that no one should really resist! I chose the IPEVO Free-1 based on the small size, affordable cost and simple aesthetic appeal. As I received the phone through the post from Amazon, I was quite taken aback by the incredibly small size. At 151mm x 38mm x 25mm it could quite possibly be the smallest phone I have ever owned (even comparing to mobile phones).
Summary: This one does at least work well on a Mac with OSX 10.3.9, whereas the Cyberphone driver is only for OSX 10.4, which they do not mention.. The Cyberphone driver for OSX 10.3.9 did not work on either of two machines in spite of looking just like the 10.4 version.. The Ipevo is also a lot neater especially if you carry it around with a laptop. Now hoping that Ipevo will produce one to work with SIP, Gizmo Project rather than Skype looks like the future..
Excerpt: If you've already read my review of Skype, then you'll be well aware that I'm not a true zealot. That is not to say I don't acknowledge its usefulness though, and in my day to day life, I use it often enough to warrant a small extravagance to make it that bit more convenient. For those without any knowledge of Skype, you may be better served by reading that review first, then returning here.
Summary: Son d'excellente qualité. En passant par les services SkypeOut, il est impossible à votre correspondant d'imagier que vous l'appelez par un systeme VOIP D'un point de vue ergonomique, la nécessité d'ouvrir un driver est un léger handicap, la molette de défilement dans la liste des contacts Skype est parfaitement opérationnelle.
Summary: Fan de nouveauté j'ai tout de suite voulu essayer ce téléphone VOIP / USB et c'est à mon avis un modèle quasi parfait. Tout d'abord ce téléphone st un produit de la société IPEVO basée a Taiwan et spécialisée dans les téléphones VOIP compatibles skype. (VOIP = Voice over IP, soit voix par l'Internet Protocol) Ne soyez pas surpris de le retrouver sous la marque Freecom, cette dernière a en effet décidé de le commercialiser sous sa propre marque mais au départ le produit...
Pros: Excellent son, fabrication splendide, pas cher, solide
