Summary: We had to return the product as it turned out, our old unit is still working. Not a day after receiving it (too late to cancel as it was already shipped), we shipped it back. It took several weeks and several follow-up before the company did return our refund and they deducted some fees.
Summary: The phone has two network connections that are not secure, so the slightest movement can dislodge them causing the phone to lose its connection. Phone cord connections are not new and, in fact, the connection to the handset is quite secure, as you expect with phones who have handset and phone line connections. It is absurd and stupid to have these connections so insecure that important calls can be disrupted so easily.
Summary: Geez, bought these 2+ years ago. Never reviewed. I use these for my business....these are VOIP phones and I use Vocalocity. I'm an executive recruiter, and I had been using Packet 8 (or 8x8) phones and service for the prior 1+ years to my buying these cisco phones. Where the packet 8 phones were horrendous...these cisco phones have been fantastic! I'm sure my voip provider has something to do with that (along with my internet speed, connection, etc).
Summary: I have owned this phone, and a few other from the Cisco range, for about 3 years. I use callcentric, and the phone was easy enough to setup (for a computer aware person), For the most part the phone has been very reliable, some problems i had in the past i can not say for a certainly were actually a problem with the phone, i had a WiFi router that i attached this to via Ethernet, i think the router was dying in the Ethernet ports.
Summary: I am really a fan of Linksys product. their interface is very good. The phone just works great and I can manage 4 phone lines with this product. Set up is not that hard at all. There is minor problem with phone. The quality of the speaker phone is not loud enough. If you compare it with that of regular home phone, the speaker is better. If you compare it with speak phone in most of high quality office phone, it is not that good.
Great phone, should have come with a power adapter!

Summary: Overall this was a great phone with everything that I needed. The only problem is that it comes without a power adapter and that is very annoying since you have to wait another few days to use the phone once you realize there is no power adapter in the package!
