Netgear SPH200D (Skype)

CNET
5 September 2014
  • Summary: The Netgear SPH200D enables phone calls on Skype and traditional landlines--but it falls a bit short of competing models on design and features.
  • Pros: Internet and landline calls on one cordless handset; no connection to your PC required for Internet calls; relatively simple setup; phone book stores up to 500 Skype contacts; built-in speaker phone on handset; up to three additional handsets can be added.
  • Cons: Can't answer a landline call while putting a Skype call on hold; occasional lockups require batteries to be removed to initiate a reset; iPod-like white design may clash with more traditional home decor.

  • Conclusion: Overall I’m extremely pleased with the Netgear SPH200D. It’s an excellent solution for anyone wanting to use Skype without having to have a PC switched on all the time and also means that we only need one handset for Skype and Landline calls.

Netgear SPH200D Skype Phone Mini-Review

Tracy and Matt's Blog
22 July 2007
  • Excerpt: Matt has given me the Netgear SPH200D phone to test and review as I am the one who uses the phone at home most of the time. The Netgear SPH200D can make both landline calls and skype calls without the need for a computer. It uses DECT technology just like most household cordless phones do these days.

Netgear SPH200D

PC Advisor
4 March 2007
  • Summary: The Netgear SPH200D isn't the first Skype phone to work wirelessly over a network. In fact, it's not even the first Skype phone from Netgear to work wirelessly over a network - that particular accolade goes to the SPH101D. But it may just be the best we've seen yet.
