Polycom SoundStation 2

Non-Expandable

 

It's a great product. These phones are the best for conferencing

NewEgg needs to make it clear this unit is non-expandable

Not titled well

 

It looks like a nice phone

It is for a Avaya PBX, this should be in the title but it is not

Check model numbers carefully

 

There are two different versions of this same phone on this site with a price difference, but no explanation. This phone is the "EX" model that allows you to attach additional microphones to the system. These mics have handy mute buttons on them so...

This is the industry standard conference phone. Easy to setup, easy to upgrade firmware. Volume and clarity are excellent. Has a lot of bells and whistles if you need them

Others have claimed that they didn't know it required a POTS/Analog line. It does, and says so on the outside of the box. Will not connect to a digital line if you have a PBX on site

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

A Perfect Conference Call Phone

 

Bought to replace my original SoundStation which stopped working.

Great Conference Phone!

 

Management requested that I research and acquire a quality conference call system. I found one that had speakers and microphones located in the ceiling for almost $5000. They didn't want to spend that much. Researching many, many items and their specs,...
