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.
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.
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.
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 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.
Works great, but took some effort to get it to link to a remote TFTP server
The phone works exactly as advertised. I needed to set this phone up to work as a VOIP extension at a remote office. I needed it to connect to a Talkswitch 848VS (talkswitch is now owned by Fortinet). When all the settings are correct this device works great.
The reason I am not giving this device 5 stars is because the directions that came with the phone did not explain how to set up the phone in the manner that I needed.
