Having got fed up with the irritating echoes on Skype through the computer speakers, plus the fact that talking into a microphone in front of your PC isn't very relaxing, I decided to get a Skype phone handset. I knew what I wanted - a corded handset, nothing too expensive, that worked out of the box. I also wanted - and this was the tricky part - to find one that would also work on my Mac and not just the PC.

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.

Excellent little phone. Voice quality is great, no annoying noises on line. Installation on mac is really easy. You only have to download the driver on the ipevo web page. Great choice!

I bought this product over a year ago. Before this one, I had a couple of generic USB phones, all of which were bulky and issued many problems as they were hard to configure and sluggish (they had a keypad, and dialing a number was slow and used many CPU resources!).

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.

I think IPEVO free.1 usb skype phone is a great product. It makes skype calls much more comfortable for a very good price (30 usd + s&h). It's very compact too. It's usb cord is 2.30 m long (7'6"). Works great both on my Toshiba Satellite L45 running Vista and my iBook G4 running OS X 10.4. You need to download the "drivers" from [...] to get full functionallity. It's actaully a small application that you have to keep running. Apparently the "start skype" button doesn't work on Vista, but that's probably because it's a beta version of the driver, I guess it will get fixed.

I bought this because my wife didn't like using the computer for Skype, we dumped the land line. It made calling real easy. It is a little smaller than expected, but sound quality works great for my situation. Buttons are responsive and it feels solid. The way it allows you to navigate through Skype is a plus. The one downside is the software, you have to make sure you get the settings correct both in Skype and the IPEVO software and get them both to open at login. Other than that, it works well for the money and keeps me from paying the "man" and the wifey happy.
