I've had a wireless netgear router for a few years now and its been excellent, so when I started thinking about finally ditching the skype headset for some more practical VOIP handsets I went straight to the Netgear site to check out their offerings. I was a bit concerned that there seemed to be so few reviews around on their products in this area, but decided to take the plunge with both the SPH200D and one additional handset (the SPH150D).

Its taken me a while to get around to setting them up, more because I was preparing myself for a long haul installation, but last night it took me about 15 minutes to get everything up and running - superb easy installation. Mind you I did already have skype installed on the PC with all my contacts etc, so no need to run the CD and do that part of the setup. The SPH200D picked up a connection with the base station as soon as I plugged it in - you then just put in a default PIN and add country and local dialling codes and you are done. If you have skype already on your PC it synchronises your skype contacts in just a few seconds. (By the way there is no power up button with the base station - you just plug it in and it just works).

With the SPH150D (the additional handset) you follow a similar process but when you register the handset make sure you are next to the base station as you need to press and hold the pager button on the top of the base station until it starts flashing. I made the mistake of just pressing it once at which point it does flash but simply pages the other handset ! (Handy for when the kids have hidden it)

This should get your additional handset registered and you can now intercom the other handset (very handy also, kids love it so watch out).

And so for the crunch - making calls.

This product is awesome - great skype and normal phone.

3 small problems:
* no in built answerphone for the landline
* no contacts held in the phone - you have to enter them all into skype
* when i first set it up there was no sound. trawled the web and found out that i needed to hit the reset button which fixed it. netgear support emailed me three days later with the same recommendation.

apart from the small gripes, awesome. i am also amazed that it just configured itself and i was online!

I have had this phone (with extra handset) for about a year.

As soon as I bought it I identified a number of issues, some of which have been discussed in other reviews. I have raised all of them with NetGear support and none of them have been resolved. I have dealt with many 'bad service' organizations before, but NetGear's support of this product is special in that it is exists as bunch of resources (off shore) but it does not exist as support. People acknowledge the support requests but never, ever address the problem. They also have a neat trick whereby they close the request automatically after a period of inactivity (their inactivity).

The phone itself has the following issues:

Caller ID is supported, but the phone does not look up the caller names in the phonebook. So you need to memorize numbers in order to make good use of this feature.

The phone provides support for landline voicemail, but if you live in the UK and your voicemail access is a four digit number (e.g. 1571) then the phone will not accept this number because of its US centric number validation.

The phone also provides (allegedly) a voicemails present indicator (landline). This doesn't work.

The phone automatically converts numbers in the history that begin with 011 to + (so a Leicester number e.g. 0116 123 4567 becomes +6 123 4567) when you dial the number from the call history (oddly this conversion is not applied for missed calls). This US centric feature is not very helpful since the number fails to connect.

The phone is provided with a number of truly awful ringtones. When the phone rings, it counts the ring pulses and plays the ringtone for that number of pulses even when another non-NetGear phone has picked up the call.

Be aware that this product is dispatched by Pixmania, and it comes with European plugs. This small matter isn't mentioned anywhere on the website, and apparently it's against UK law - but I digress... You'll need two adaptors to get it working - unfortunately Pixmania only bundled one with mine, meaning I had to wait an additional 15 days before I could even try the thing. I ordered this as a Christmas present for my partner, but by the time I'd received the second adaptor it was well into January.

The product failed to operate as claimed - Skype worked, the landline function didn't. I spent several days phoning the Netgear support centre and getting fobbed off with suggestions such as 'check the cable' and 'reset the unit' etc, until they finally exhausted their list and agreed to replace the product. They gave me two options - I had to either take a day off work and wait for their courier to pick the product up, or pay a non-refundable £15 charge for them to send a replacement directly. You may be wondering where Pixmania was throughout this process - they had stopped answering emails after skipping off into the sunset with my £100.

When I got the replacement, to my joy I saw it was a UK version - and when I fired it up, it worked first time. It's a great product, simple to use, slightly dodgy ringtones, but overall it's great.

To sum up, I recommend this product - but what I don't recommend is buying it from Amazon! The same product was available from the high street chains last time I checked, and you'll be guaranteed to get a UK compatable version.
