Summary: Works Excellent! All you have to do is call Customer Support if you need help confirguring it. Very easy to use. Insall CD (less than 2 minutes). Plug in USB into the Back of your computer and your phone is ready. You have to remember that once you plug in your phone, you have to then go back to your Skype Account and allow this phone model to "access Skype". In Skype: 1. Click "Tools" 2. Cilck "Options" 3. Click "Advanced" 4.
Summary: I admit I was a little apprehensive after reading some of the negative reviews, but at the price I thought it was worth a shot. I installed the software without a hitch (Windows XP), charged it for the recommended 14 hours, and made my first call this morning. The sound was incredible, no problems whatsoever, very easy to use. The USB station is at one end of the house and I'm at the other with no signal loss at all.

Summary: The Linksys CIT200 Skype phone has worked marvelously with my PC and Skype. I have two laptops, one with XP and one with Vista, so I opted to install it on the XP to avoid any Vista issues. At first I couldn't get it to work, but only because I hadn't installed all the drivers (tip: it'll seem like it's installing the same driver multiple times, but it's really different ones.
Summary: This phone did everything i expected it to do. Works perfectly with Skype and brings up my skype contacts when i push the button. as long as you know how to change your sound settings for your computer and skype. if you dont know much about computers and dont have a friend to help you set this phone up it might not work right for you. But if you do you will be real happy. the speakerphone is great, I cant imagine what the other phones can do for twice the price?
Summary: Good range and battery life - we use this phone all over the house and in the yard. Call quality is great. This was the best option I could find at the time. I didn't want to spend the extra $100 for a phone that didn't need a computer to work.
Summary: I purchased this phone for relatives in a foreign country. They were simply amazed at its functionality and practicality. The phone connects to your computer and interfaces with Skype to receive and make calls, either using Skype-to-Skype or dialing regular numbers using SkypeIn and SkypeOut. The call quality is amazing; it is clearer than a landline under the right conditions. Highly recommended.
Summary: I bought this for my mother-in-law. She makes lots of overseas calls she leaves her desktop computer on pretty much all day so this product makes good sense for her. It was very easy to install and test. I didn't see any of the driver issues mentioned in other reviews, but I didn't play with it very long. Mother-in-law hasn't called me for tech support on it yet either. The sound quality is excellent and it's pretty easy to use.
