A full featured IP deskphone in the $40-$50 range
The GXP 1405 is lightweight and compact. Depending on what you're used to, the hardware quality may leave something to be desired. For example, the base and handset could feel a bit hollow to you if you're accustomed to the thicker plastic found in Polycoms.
Cannot recommend Grandstream
We used this and several other Grandstream voice and video phones for about a year before giving up on them. Grandstream phones are about the lowest cost IP phones available. They will work as a basic voip phone, for dialing and receiving calls. That is about all I can say that is positive about them. If you want to use ALL the latest VoIP and PBX features, Grandstream will leave you wanting. The firmware is buggy and features often don't work correctly.
Very affordable, Feature-packed
We were impressed with this phone, which is no surprise considering that we also liked the GXP 2020 when we reviewed it last year. The GXP 2100 does just about everything comparable VoIP phones from competing manufacturers can do at a fraction of the price.
Built-in volume controls and ringtones
Hawking Technology's Net-Talk is a USB "Internet phone," which is to say it's a phone for making VoIP calls with an existing Internet connection. The lightweight device is compatible with the four major instant messaging services that offer voice capability (AOL, Yahoo, MSN, and Google), but it's primarily designed to work with Skype.
Very affordable - A lot of bang for your buck
The Grandstream GXP 2020 Enterprise SIP phone is in the company's GXP series of phones, a line that focuses on devices that are "feature rich, auto-provisionable for mass deployment, easy to use and competitively priced". The company specializes in very affordable VoIP equipment and the GXP 2020 is no exception. At around $80, this phone is probably one of the most affordable 'executive class' phones on the market.
Excellent value, supported by VOIP providers
We purchased a half-dozen of these for my startup because they're supported by Vocalocity (our VOIP provider), had the features we want, and the price was right. It's a solid, few-frills, get-the-job-done VOIP phone. Excellent sound quality, and it's attractive on the desk, too.
My only complaint is that the phone uses icons (a picture of a hand for "hold", a piece of paper with a folded corner for "setup") instead of words.
Great features at affordable price
If you do a quick search on this phone, you'll find several glowing reviews of this phone and for good reason. We thoroughly enjoyed testing the SPA-942 in our office, and would recommend it wholeheartedly to any business looking for great cubicle/desk phones at an affordable price. Although the speakerphone did not deliver, the sound quality, the backlit display, and all the other great features won us over.
Incredibly stable, powerful business tool
I recently oversaw the purchase and installation of Cisco CallManager and Cisco IP telephones. This was my company's first venture into IPT and we did so with both guns blazing, so to speak. Our standard setup is the Cisco IP Phone 7940 series. This phone has proven itself to be rock-solid, stable and powerful. We have experienced 100% uptime with our VoIP telephones and response from users has been terrific.
Very good detail reproduction
The one printer that clearly stands out from the pack is the Canon i960. The combination of speed, color fidelity, detail, and price makes it a fabulous product. The Canon i900D and the Epson Stylus Photo R300 offer excellent value and are also fine choices. The HP would work well for people who print black-and-white images often. The Olympus P-440 is just too expensive for its limited usefulness.
