Forget Linksys!

Graham L., Newegg
2 May 2008
  • Summary: Typical Linksys product, dies after about a year of use.
  • Pros: Good sound quality and battery life. Durable.
  • Cons: Started loosing connection with base station after about 6 months even after fresh windows install. Eventually had to restart computer after every phone call to get it to work.

User Review

Mark G., Newegg

  • Summary: Go for it.
  • Pros: Great phone for skype phone service. Just enough features to make the phone useful without crazy unneeded frills. Great sound quality.
  • Cons: The booklet says there are extra headsets to work thru the same base unit. I have yet to find.

Generally good phone

Adir S., Newegg
26 March 2007
  • Summary: worth the price (and I got xx$ rebate)
  • Pros: Good quality, very good speaker, good reception in the apartment (one bedroom apartment). Easy installation
  • Cons: Very low buttery - needs to be charged all the time. Not very easy interface (no one button redile, phone memory and skype diling lists are seperated) No external phone input (I knew it when I purchase it. I don't really need external input)

Buy the CIT400 instead

Robert P., Newegg
26 March 2007
  • Summary: I was hoping for more from it. The CIT400, while a lot more expensive, just works and does it pretty well actually. This model was underwhelming to say the least.
  • Pros: It USUALLY does what it's supposed to, and with adequate results but I was expecting a little more...
  • Cons: Having to switch audio devices has become something of a pain. Battery life is horrible - just leave it on the base when not in use or you'll find it dead.

Unuseably flaky

Pedro R., Newegg
15 March 2007
  • Summary: Tried new drivers and all the different settings, registration/reset procedures, and other tricks I could google up. Nothing would reliably keep the handset communicating with the base. It's a home phone, not a gameboy; it's useless if it's not reliable.
  • Pros: USB base separate from charger Nice backlit display
  • Cons: Fiddley sound settings Won't maintain connection to base

Phone was good while it lasted

Anonymous, Newegg
8 March 2007
  • Summary: I probably would have rated it higher if Linksys tech support was easier to deal with. It's been 2 weeks and I still can't get an RMA from them.
  • Pros: Decent quality phone. Did what it was supposed to.
  • Cons: Died after only 40 days. Will not even detect the base station. Product has a beta feel to it.

Works Great

Sougata D., Newegg
17 February 2007
  • Pros: What can I say. It works and without a flaw. It is a nice compact size with a lot of great features. It has good range. I can walk into the next room or even outside and I still get good reception.
  • Cons: None so far

Peter B., Newegg

  • Summary: I plan on using it with my Trixbox and the Xlink softphone when I get a chance.
