Summary: Good points Battery Life Great - used for hour and half without making dent in battery - previous dect phones have always started to bleep after 30 to 45 minutes... Skype setup excellent and easy. Bad points Slight delay when syncing with Skype addresses on account (Mac/ PC) Other thoughts Could do with Option of MP3 ringtones etc.
Summary: Good points easy to set up already had skype so just pluged it in and logged onto skype account, that's it. No more turning the computer on to make/receive skype calls. Good sound quality,easy to use.
Summary: Good points Easy to use and set up. You can use one phone for Skype and one for land line at the same time. Clear colour screen with intuitive menus. Bad points Perhaps a few alternative or downloadable ring tones would be a nice touch but there are some which are fine for everyday use.
Summary: Be aware that this product is dispatched by Pixmania, and it comes with European plugs. This small matter isn't mentioned anywhere on the website, and apparently it's against UK law - but I digress... You'll need two adaptors to get it working - unfortunately Pixmania only bundled one with mine, meaning I had to wait an additional 15 days before I could even try the thing.
Summary: First of all I would agree with those who have commented positively on the general build quality and general ease of setting up for this phone. In particular I was impressed by the fact that I was able to simply plug the base station into the router, turn on it and the phone and then log into skype: no messing about with IP addresses, network passwords, etc. I have a few recommendations and observations which might be useful for prospective buyers however: 1.
Summary: WhatÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s best about this skype phone/land line is that it works with either an ADSL USB modem or a broadband router, unlike some other skype phones. If you use skype a lot, another perk is that you donÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t need to be tied to your pc to use skype. The unit was easy to install and set up, and I was able to inslall an additional non-Netgear GAP compatible phone. Sound quality is good. All in all, very good value.
