This product is so underrated in amazon UK, I just wish I knew Obi100 existed before, it'd have saved me and my family so much money. This is my 2nd Obi100 and the 1st one I bought it from amazon.com before realizing it's also available in amazon.co.uk, which means cheaper/faster shipping :) (not available in amazon.fr)
Just to tell you how much I like this produt, I have now 4 of them (2 Obi100 and 2 Obi110) that I'm sending to my family all around the globe... and I'm considering buying more. Why? because I have a landline here in France that allows me to call 104 countries for free and my Obi110 is used as gateway. So that any of my family member can call the 104 countries for free. Guess what? my ISP is called "free" :)
What about the features?
- regular US phone number at home (through Google Voice or Call Centric or ...)
- many codecs available (including G.729) = low internet bandwith countries can be reached
- web-based remote administration of the device (I can configure the Obi devices wherever they're in the world)
- easy configuration
- less than 30£
- last but not least: Obi to Obi communication!! It's peer to peer and it uses many different ports (not only 5060), thus avoiding IP/port blocking from some third world ISPs.
Just try to find an ATA that offers half of this... oh yeah, the OBi110! Consider buying this latter if you want to use it as a gateway to landline. Have a look at amazon.com, I've never seen such a high customer rating:
