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.
Purchased 6 X2020 extensions and the X-50 server. 6 POTS line configuration. Easy install - the X2020 extensions configured themselves flawlessly. Wasn't aware that the system allowed for DID lines only for a VOIP configuration. Worked thru this issue by making a few simple configuration changes on the X-50.
Great work phone
The form factor of these phones are both visually appealing and physically comfortable to work with on a daily basis. We are using them for a Ring Central account and the setup was a breeze - even for the non-technical people. I would make one technical recommendation to purchasers: these do not come with a power supply. If you are a medium sized or larger office (not just 1 or 2 people), then I would recommend purchasing a POE switch to power the phones instead of the $15 power brick.
Excellent audio, quality Intuitive to use
The Cisco SPA504G is a very good phone. With HD voice supported, it delivers excellent voice quality in an intuitive and well-made piece of hardware. The OnSIP team is thrilled to see another manufacturer taking steps to bring HD voice to midrange phones that won't cost customers an arm and a leg.
Better than Alternatives
Please don't judge this item by the other reviews. Most of the issues they are describing are related to their provider, or PBX. Overhead paging, call transfers, dropped calls, etc... are all problems with the system the phones are connected to, not the phone it's self. I suspect those reviews are from disappointed CEOs who don't know the difference between a handset and the PBX.
Sound Quality is Great! Rich audio with deep tones.
Neat design, Intuitive to use, Great audio quality on handset and speakerphone
Naturally, we're most excited about the introduction of another entry-level phone with wideband audio support. With affordable IP phones that support wideband, more and more people will be able to experience first-hand just how good their calls can really sound. Hopefully products like the 335 will shift HD voice from a perceived luxury to the industry standard.
Works nicely for me
The review that gave this phone 1 star because of the PoE issue wasn't reasonable. To be clear - the phone does not come with a power adapter. You will need to buy one separately or use a PoE (Power over Ethernet) injector or switch to power the phone. I don't mind this at all - in some locations, it's easier to power it with PoE, and I appreciate not having to pay for an extra adapter I won't use.
This is not a consumer phone.
Quality entry level product
The Soundpoint 331, Polycom's new desktop phone, is a direct replacement for the Soundpoint 330, the brand's entry-level IP phone. The two phones are identical except that the 331 has additional memory to support future feature enhancing SIP software upgrades expected in late 2010. According to 888voipstore, the Soundpoint IP 331 is a "cost-effective solution for cubicle workers as well as call center operators who use a 'hard' phone in conjunction with a 'soft' client running on the PC".
Item was not new as offered
The item was previously used but offered as if it were new. To set it up has been a big problem as it is password blocked so new firmware must be downloaded but the version managed by the phone is old so the one available it Cisco right now is not useful. I have not been able set the phone to use it as it should have brought at least the passwords stablished by the previous user/administrator.
Excellent build quality
In closing I'd like to return to an impression that I first had some years ago when I first started using IP phones. If you work for a small company, or in a home office, and live on the phone as much as I do, then life is just too short to get by with a marginal phone. You can't appreciate the difference between "good enough" and something that is truly exceptional to use without trying it for yourself. The difference in cost is not as much as you might expect.
Great personal and conference VoIP phone
I bought several of these phones for employees at my office last year. They've worked very well as office phones and even as conference phones with up to three people sitting around the phone. The sound quality is very clear.
There are a few caveats that apply to all VoIP phones. First, before you can use a VoIP phone you must configure the VoIP server, in our case Asterisk, to associate the phone's MAC address with its phone extension.
Excellent handset and speakerphone voice quality
The overall design successfully incorporates both sharp edges and rounded corners, and gives the phone a very sleek look. The Polycom 550 is probably one of the most visually appealing desk phone we've reviewed so far.
Poor speakerphone quality
The Snom 320 is a 2-year old SIP business phone, and the middle tier in the company's 300 series. It has more features than the Snom 300 including additional line displays and a better semi-graphic LCD, but at a considerable price increase. The Snom 360 and 370 are even pricier still and have larger LCD screens, as well as another suite of features that are not included in the 320.
