Polycom SoundStation2W Wireless vs Wireless Expandable

 

The phone makes use of Polycom's innovative full-duplex technology and produces voice quality that is much louder with twice the microphone sensitivity of the previous version. This makes two-way conversations much more decipherable and audible. Secure...

Polycom 2200-16000-001

 

Phone work perfectly right out of the box and the performance was good. One issue is that it would not work with the phone system in place and had to be connected to a phone line that did not go through the switchboard

POLYCOM SOUNDSTATION 2W EXPANDABLE 2.4GHZ WDCT WIRELESS (PHASEOUT)

 

I would buy it again-and I did buy a second one.

It is a huge improvement over an ordinary telephone''s speakerphone. People on the other end compliment the voice quality

Only about one in twenty cellphones will work with the PolyCom. I had to buy a new cellphone to have the cellphone operating option. PolyCom should be able to put an off switch on it so it does not have to be continuously charged

Awesome product

 

The capability to carry the phone to someone's office and do a true conference call is a huge win for a small business environment.

This product is well thought out, well designed, and "just works". The battery lasts a long time in my experience, and the wireless has no interference issues, even with multiple 2.4Ghz data access points in the some building

It will lose its connection to base occasionally, but it is easy to pair again

POLYCOM SOUNDSTATION 2W BASIC 2.4GHZ WDCT WIRELESS (PHASEOUT)

 

Ok, for now!

Convenient and an improvement over our previous system

Picks up static - we are still not sure if it''s on our end. Range maybe not be as much as advertised
