Summary: If you use Skype or other VoIP from your computer, this is the best speaker phone. I first purchased 1 at least 5 years ago and it is still going strong. 1 bought a second so I have work and home covered.
Summary: This is a very old design, limited in many ways. It is barely satisfactory if used solely as an individual speakerphone, where the (only) user is right in front of it. However most users tend to use it when they have other participants around the table, almost as if it was a conference room speakerphone; or by walking around, instead of staying put in front of it. It does a very, very poor job in these scenarios.
Summary: I purchased the Polycom as I work from home and do conference calls via Lync off and on throughout the day. I sometimes find it difficult to hear and difficult to click on the mute/unmute button to speak on calls. This Polycom has solved both of those problems. It allows you turn the volume up to a more reasonable level when needed, and the mute/unmute button is right at your fingertips when needed. All you need is an available USB port to plug it in on your computer.
Summary: I bought two of these units - one for work and one for home. Somehow, I have an issue using this one with Skype on my home laptop. The one I use at work lasted about 6 months then there was a lot of status on the other end of the line (I was told).
Summary: This product is perfect for the home office as well as the travel office. It has clear voice reception and is loud enough to hear from across the room. It takes up very little space and comes with a carry case for you briefcase.

Summary: I read lots of reviews for the many usb/computer speakerphones and narrowed down to three. There were so many conflicting reviews it was hard to choose! I just wanted THE best one that works well. I ended up ordering and testing these three: - Polycom CX100 - Jabra 410 - Plantronics Calisto P420 I then hooked all three up to my computer...place a skype call to someone in another room in our office and one by one switched the audio devices in skype.
Summary: While you cannot walk around the office or house anywhere you please, you can walk around in a room and have a conversation or hold a conference call with ease. Clarity is fantastic. You won't be disappointed.
