Gadgetell Review: Plantronics Calisto Pro Series

 

I have used my share of VoIP phones out there, so when Plantronics sent me the newish Calisto Pro Series, I didn't have too high of expectations. However I became impressed quickly with the great Bluetooth integration, among other features. There are...

I installed this in my detached office behind my house. This unit made it 200+' across the street to my neighbors house. The headset did go about 30' but had some static. It also has a handful of different ring tones

After a few months the range & battery life diminished. The phone could only make it to the middle of the street & battery life dropped to half even after following the charging recommendations. I was lied 2 about the MAC OS X 10.6 software rele

Plantronics Calisto Pro Series Cordless Landline/VoIP Phone, Silver/Black

 

Before I purchased my phone I did the necessary research to ensure that I would be happy with the product in the future. What I did was to first call Plantronics and ask if the VoIP software was compatible with Mac OS X 10.6. I was told that the...

Plantronics Calisto Pro Series Cordless Landline/VoIP Phone, Silver/Black

 

Bought this to replace a Plantronics CT11 that has served me well for many years but was time for an upgrade. I tried a few different models and finally decided to bite the bullet and spend the $330 (Canadian Dollars, Office Depot) on the Calisto. Like...

GREAT sound quality

while it looks good on your desk it does take up a fair bit of real estate

Plantronics Calisto Pro Series Cordless Landline/VoIP Phone, Silver/Black

 

Over all I like the concept of the phone, did not mind the unit was a little bulky, but I don't think I would buy this phone again. I would prefer the unit that I have has perfect success (CS series). I use that in the office and wished i spent the...

BlueTooth capability for the home phone

The key pad is too small and hard to read, poor lighting. I , I alway have to tilt or reangle to read the numbers. Connection gets garbled, Could not make out words, and must redial on most calls

Very disappointed Calisto Outlook Phonebook

One of the few 'home or office' phones that will sync contacts with Microsoft Outlook, but does a poor job of that

Outlook Phonebook Utility limited to 200 names requiring manually selection of contacts

Love the bluetooth option, but it's kind of scratchy sounding.

This phone can do what many others cannot- if you really need all of your telephony to run thru one phone, by all means...go with this one

Display is very small and poorly lit

Sweet lookin phone

 

Dont get me wrong the phone is excelent, but a two story building with lots of walls, and electronics seems to reduce quality. My grandparents love it, so if its good enough for them its good enough for me.

It is sleek, sexy and made by a great brand. Got it to allow work to go on without any cables or neck bending. It has a lot of options a phone book, and the bluetooth headset to top it off

The headset seems to always have interference having a slight hiss even on top of the dock. The regular phone is kinda weird, the speaker is on the back so you dont get direct to the ear audio. I am pretty sure that the phone has an answering machine...

Good Value, Great Design, Quality Construction

Bulky, Overpriced

Great.. except it won't stay charged

 

I really like my Calisto Pro phone/earpiece.  Everything about it is fine, except for after using it for about a year it started having a hard time staying "connected" to the charging base. I have to wiggle it around a million times before it finally...

Love the bluetooth technology

Earpiece won't stay connected to the charging base, so it goes dead all the
