Other Thoughts:The Skype internet telephone service is excellent, however I was hoping that this telephone would be just a plug in and use device. Unfortunately even if the PC you plug it into has Skype, you cannot use it unless you load driver software which means you cannot use this telephone on public PCs or Internet Cafes as they do not allow this.
<br/>If you want a telephone with good features that is always available beside your always on PC then this is a good unit, however if you travel around a lot and have to grab access where you can, buy a ZipLinq microphone headset and carry a wireless capable laptop.
<br/>Personally I am now using a standard microphone & audio earphone headset plugged into my sound card on my PC at home for skype.
Other Thoughts:This was a inexpensive USB Internet phone that I got to do 'proof-of-concept' testing on Skype. It worked fine and so did the software that came with it. If I get more serious about VoIP, then I'll move up to a better one or cordless.
Other Thoughts:This product gets 5 stars in design and implementation. The buttons are where they should be, it feels like a phone, it "talks" like a phone. Definitley a must for every Skype fan. It also works with SkypeIn and SkypeOut so you can send and receive calls to this handset. Crystal clear voice quality. Absolutley brilliant. If I had, for the life of me, find a glitch in this device, I would say it takes a split second more than it should to scroll down on the list of skype names.
Other Thoughts:This phone works. The driver is a minor issue unless you have a Mac.
<br/>For those who complain about delays in voice, the phone is not the one to blame. You need to learn how VOIP works before making your statement. IRAQ is not next door. For a network packet to prapagate to Iraq, it has to travels thru hudreds of hubs. 15 seconds sounds long but not all that unreasonable considering sattellites are involved in the transmission.
Other Thoughts:In the past few weeks i've placed 3 orders with the site and my first order arrived and was 100% satisfied with the company. I am still waiting my next two orders but the customer service by email has been quick and easy to work with.
