Panasonic KX-TCA94EXB Headset by Panasonic
I bought this to as it matches the phone I'm using and some people said the plantronics M175 I was using was too quiet - I thought maybe compatibility issue, and I should get the Panasonic one.
Well this is a lot worse - sounds quiet and muffled, no option to adjust mike volume, not really usable. (Tried with fully charged batteries in phone just in case - though phone mic works fine with any charge.)
Obviously I could talk really loudly, but I don't want to shout on the phone all day, and in any case the handset speaker phone comes over loud and clear with my normal voice - just I can't use it when sharing an office.

Given 1 star as zero doesn't seem to be an option.

Having taken this on holiday as my only novel I had little choice but to plow on through the introductory chapters, which are pretty dire as writing goes. Having persevered and got stuck into the story, I loved the book.
I don't think Greg shows an arrogant approach to development - more naivety and ignorance, more than compensated by a genuinely big heart. Like many of us, he starts out not knowing how little he knows. What he himself learns from the people he went to help is as much an education as he hopes to provide in the schools he builds.
If you after a finely wrought work of fiction, don't bother with this book, but for an eye opening and inspirational story of life in… Read more
