Summary: The best I can say about this product is that it generally works as advertised. I connect the base station to a USB port on my computer and, as long as the computer is on and I'm logged into Skype, I can make and receive calls with this phone. The range is pretty good--my computer (and the phone's base station) are on one end of my 2BR apartment and the phone has a clear connection even when I'm on the other end (maybe 25 yards).
Summary: I was looking for a cost effective skype phone friendly enough to be used by my wife. After reading lots of reviews I finally decided by the Linksys CIT200 Skype phone. It was a good decision because the phone works properly and what is more important my wife liked it and used it very easily. The only problem I found is that this phone does not have driver for Windows Vista 64 bits what forced me to connect it to my old computer, what was not my intention.
Summary: I bought the same phone as my boyfriend so we could talk on Skype. Although his phone worked just fine mine had several issues that had to be mechanical in nature. Some of the issues I experienced was that it would not let me dial in numbers directly to the phone, I had to save them as a contact and then it would allow me to dial from my phone. It also just sometimes wouldn't work, and sometimes would. It was very unreliable.
Summary: Pros: Works great with Skye, Comfortable in your hand, good sound quality, color display, good price. Cons: Computer must be on all the time, phone replaces your mic and speakers, no direct dialing from phone that I have found, you must use contacts entered into skype to call. Great idea and great phone. It is comfortable to hold and works very well with Skype. Sound quality is great. I got Skype to replace another voip company whose service wasn't that consistent.
Summary: I've used this product for several months now, and I'm happy to tell a bit about it. Pros: >Good range. I live in a multi-story home and keep my base on the 2nd floor. I am able to use my phone upstairs and down, and even doing laundry in the garage. It reads well through walls, and I have not once been disconnected. >It's small--the base fits in my hand and both phone and base are easily portable.
Summary: It is small, easy to use (even the speaker phone is a little boring to activate during a call). It will cut your current computer speaker sound, so don't choose CIT200 during the instalation screen at control panel. If you change only inside the skype options menu you will have both linksys phone and speakers working.
Summary: The phone itself is only as good as the Skype service. The quality of the line leaves much to be desired sometimes. The other problem is that you can only setup new phone numbers on the computer and not on the phone directly. Otherwise, the product is as advertised.
Summary: The CIT200 Linksys Skype phone does its job. It connects to the USB port of your PC, and allows you to make Skype calls from its cordless handset without the need to be at the computer. Your Skype contacts are all available on the phone itself, clearly displayed on the color LED screen. The sound quality is quite good for Skype calls, and the equivalent of a land-line for Skype-Out calls. The phone falls short in several key areas, however: 1.
Summary: The Linksys CIT200 performs acceptably. It serves fine as a cordless phone. I know some have complained about the rechargeable batteries, but we've not talked long enough for this to be an issue. We've had some sound problems, but I'm confident that they are related to the skype service, not this device. After messing with the Windows XP sound settings, we were able to achieve a comfortable speaking and listening volume. Two complaints: 1.
