Think twice before you buy this phone...

Summary: I bought this back in March, went through the install and everything worked fine. This morning...it was a brick. My diagnosis is that a recent Skype hotfix\update is incompatible with this phone. This Logitech model is from 2006 so it's rather old and Logitech doesn't support it anymore. Anyway, I was running Skype 4.2 (latest-and-greatest version) and all of a sudden the phone acted as if Skype was not running on my PC (showing "Skype Offline").
Summary: I am running windows 7 64 bit and the latest skype version, I installed the vista driver provided by Logitech on their website ([...]) and had to do 2 things to make it work, 1- uninstall msn live messenger (Do not ask me why! I read it somewhere on the internet) 2- set the Logitech mic and speaker as the default audio device (a true inconvenience) and it worked like magic, great range, clear sound, speaker phone, belt clip, headset output, independent phone base and...
Summary: I almost didn't buy this because from reading the reviews it didn't look like it would work with Windows 7. I'm here to tell you it works just fine. Just grab the Vista driver from this link [...] and you should be fine. Only real complaints are: -I can't figure out how to attach the belt clip that came with this phone. -Batteries that ship with this phone suck. Get some real ones. -you have to dial 001- before any phone numbers, even here in the US.
Get your WIN 7 64Bit Support (or lack of), Right here!

Summary: I will try to keep this thin. I was using the Linksys CT200 handset with Skype on XP for over a year and it worked fantastically. Great call quality, never a dropped call. I then upgraded in 2/2010 to an Dell XPS 8000 running win7 64bit. Phone worked FINE for a couple months. Suddenly It would drop calls after about the 20min mark. Then it progressed to dropping every 5mins, then it started a new game where it would not ring anymore.
Summary: This is a great Skype phone that is only now let down by Logitech. Ever since Microsoft released Messenger 9 there has been a confilct between the Skype Phone and Messenger. Well after repeated calls to Logitech I have given up. Logiteck do not seem interested in writing updated drivers for this phone. It is a shame as I do like the Phone but I must now go and buy a different brand.
Summary: I've had my Logitech Cordless Internet Handset for about 2 weeks and over all I am happy. If you plan to buy one you should know that Logitech has discontinued this product. As others have pointed out the battery performance leaves something to be desired. In order to get the full potential our of the NI-MH rechargeable batteries I had to use an external charger. Luckily I have one as I use NI-MH batteries in all of my remotes and what not.
Summary: Nice product for all you Skype users. Gives you portability from your PC to anywhere in the House/Office. I like the little menu in the task bar which allows you to switch between the phone and PC with ease. All voice mails can be accessed either from the PC or from the phone. No real complaints - battery life a bit suspect but it mostly sits in the power charging cradle so not much of an issue.
Summary: Have just bought the Logitech cordless Skype handset. It works as advertised - and is so good both my wife and I have one now as we work in the same room. Have not worked out how to get to contact a long way down the page using the handset yet- but I am sure there is a way! Great solution at a currently good value price.
