Great cordless VoIP phone
3 simultaneous calls and up to 6 cordless handsets, perfect for small business or home office.
Range and call quality is amazing. All the basic features: Speakerphone, Transfer, Intercom, Message Waiting Indicator, etc.
Setup was easy, since our VoIP provider (voiSip) was able to do it remotely in about 2 minutes.
My only suggestion to Panasonic would be to allow more than 6 handsets.
Great audio quality Easy to use joystick
The Panasonic TGP500 comes with a base station, an unassuming black box that you can mount on a wall or hide in the corner of a room somewhere, and one Panasonic TPA50 cordless handset. Each base station supports up to 6 handsets, and up to 8 different lines. Each base station can also handle up to 3 simultaneous calls to the outside world, but you'll be able to intercom between handsets without taking up any of your 3 open lines.
Very good sound quality
Where the KX-UT113 succeeds is where it actually matters: voice quality. The speaker phone is nice and crisp. It renders both speech and IVR menus quite well. It's no Sennheiser, but it's leagues ahead of the execrable speaker that came with our pre-production UT136. The distortion control kept everything smooth sailing even when we blasted music through one phone line to try to overdrive the phone's speaker.
I purchased these items for both our US and European Operations so I could video conference with my other traders. Upon receipt of this device and upgrading the firmware to the latest it just got stuck. You wait three days to get customer support. End result they say send it back.
If you want to spend more time trying to get a device to work than actually making money using it, then get this phone. Going with Siemens. At least when you have a problem the turn around time is ONE HOUR !
Touch interface needs improvements
Whether you're on board with combining Flickr and desk phone or not, the GXV 3175 is an exciting product. The Internet browser application is the best one we've tried on a desk phone to date. GXV 3175 to GXV 3175 video calling worked seamlessly (no surprise), and there is evidence that video will play nice with others as well. The phone offers so many features that I'm sure we left a lot of stones unturned. Is it perfect?
