Nice

John H., Newegg
3 December 2008
  • Summary: Polycom sells these in two different flavors, with and without AC adapter (no difference in phones). Before you buy please note that these are PoE only with OPTIONAL AC adapter. Also worth mentioning: although this is a two line phone, if you want the use of a message button you will loose one of...
  • Pros: PoE, Dual NIC's (doesn't eat up another switch port for both your PC and phone), very configurable, nice looking, sounds good. Comes with a network cable degausser. Oh and you can use the phone base for either wall mounting or ordinary desk base. Speaker phone works great both directions!
  • Cons: NIC's are kind of cheap. I own 7 of these dudes and had one set of NIC's die on me. The LCD screens sometimes flicker using PoE - probably not the phones fault so much as my switch, but I switch to the AC adapter anyway.

Excellent VOIP Phone

David L., Newegg
18 September 2008
  • Summary: Polycom makes great phones with great sound quality. Finally they're making reasonably priced phones too. To those who left a bad review because it doesn't come with a power brick: Come on! You haven't even tried the phone and you're leaving a bad review???
  • Pros: 2 line, great sound quality (of course: it's a Polycom), rugged, nice-looking, nice display, has a message button and indicator light. Low price. I have three - 2 POE, 1 wall power - and they've been 100% reliable for months now. Much better than the Grandstreams they replaced.
  • Cons: Figuring out how to replace the Line 2 button with the Messages button (included) was a royal pain. Doesn't come with an AC adaptor. Difficult for my big fingers to unplug the network line without first removing the stand.

Order a Power Adapter!!!!!!!!

Michael C., Newegg
28 August 2008
  • Summary: I'll try and remember to write another review when the phone actually gets powered up.
  • Pros: Phone looks nice. Seems to have a rugid case and well spaced/sized buttons for those of us with larger fingers.
  • Cons: NO WHERE did I see in the SPECS that there was an OPTIONAL AC adapter for those meer mortals that don't have Power Over Ethernet! Guess I'll scrap this project for another week while I wait for someone to ship me a wall-wart.

Dude, where's my power?

Kent M., Newegg
15 July 2008
  • Summary: Who sells a phone without a power brick? Yeah, I know PoE. I'll run right out and buy some of that PoE. Heard they got some out in calliforny.
  • Pros: Good phone, great features.
  • Cons: No power supply. Awesome. Its not as much fun pushing buttons when the unit has no power. :(
