When checking around for products I was amazed at how expensive some of this stuff was. Equally there was some very cheap stuff out there but I had no idea if it would work. Fortunately I stumbled across the IPEVO FREE1 phone and various reviews that said it worked on Mac OSX (if you download the drivers) so I ordered it.
Straight away I have to say that this whole buying experience was excellent - Amazon are usually very good for me but this time they excelled; my phone arrived less than 36 hours after I had ordered it and even with Free Super Saver Delivery. It cost me £17.99 which is one heck of a bargain.
When it arrived I plugged it into the USB port on my Mac and it worked as a phone instantly. However pressing all the little buttons on it did nothing so I went to the IPEVO website and downloaded the drivers, realised that I have to run a little separate program as well as Skype, ran the program and off it went. I had a choice of ringtones on the handset (all pretty basic), where the sound came from (I could have it from the computer's speakers or the Free1 handset), how loud various bits `n bobs were. Basically all the things you might need to change. It's got some useful buttons on it that scroll down your Skype contacts list so you don't actually have to touch the computer to make calls and stuff.Read more ›
Then I had the chance to test this IPEVO unit, it worked like a charm, very fast dialing, convenient buttons and superb audio quality, you can barely tell if it's a regular or an IP phone.
The most important: it's lightweight.. Just a few grams, ideal for carrying it arround in your laptop bag.
You can easily program the three custom buttons to do whatever you like: redial, listen to voicemail, review lost calls, etc.

This is a great little handset for the money. It was smaller than I expected, but very comfortable to hold and use. It works great on my Macbook running OS X 10.6. Read morePublished on November 19, 2009 by Kelli Shaver

This is the best voice quality and best echo cancelation of all the products I've tried out there. I even saw that Skype was using it at the Festival de Cannes for celebs to call... Read morePublished on May 30, 2008 by Henri Duong
