The phone is well packaged and comes complete with all necessary cables. The handset is lightweight but seems well built and has a large and clear LCD display with backlight.
Easy to set up and install - but you do have to remove your current version of Skype first from your pc. The phone's software is supplied on CD but automatically downloads the latest version from it's website. Only Windows is supported
To make a call you just enter the number you want on the keypad or the internal phonebook and select one button to call with Skype or another to dial with your landline. The phone and it's software on your pc sorts out the different dialing prefixes etc.
Crytsal clear reception on both Skype and landline, both equally good. You can hold simultaneous conversations on Skype and a landline and switch between them. You can also view on the phone's LCD screen which of your Skype buddies are online and call them directly.
Be aware that to use the phone's Skype capabilities then your PC must be switched on with Skype running. Another minus is that the full user guide is available only on the CD or online. The printed guide supplied is good but is brief and it is necessary to consult the full manual to understand all then phone has to offer.
After waiting for ages for Amazon to supply it directly in the end I ordered via an Amazon reseller and received with 48 hours by courier.
I can reccomend this phone 100%.

If you are a regular Skype user then you should not be without this device. It works seamlessly and well with your PC's Skype connection as well as flawlessly as an everday cordless phone.

I have chatted to friends in China and Poland from the garden of my UK house with a crystal clear Skype connection. Just enter a number and choose one 'Send' button to dial normally or the other 'Send' button to dial via Skype. It rings with separate tones for incoming Skype or landline calls and even allows you to hold simultaneous conversations on both systems.

Downside? Well, you have to visit the website on a regular basis to check for software updates to integrate with new versions of Skype. Also, a few more ring tones or the option to import external ringtones would be nice. Also, the mono LCD screen is a bit dim sometimes. Otherwise - 100%

I have had this phone for almost a year. The concept is good - it really does allow Skype to be used just as you would use a normal cordless phone. I intend to continue using cordless phones with Skype.

Why the low score? When I got this it was the only product out. When I replace it - which will be soon - I will not be buying from this company again.

Here are defects in this phone:

1. The phone is bulky.
2. The case has a cheap feel to it.
3. The buttons are cheap and rubbery and make it almost impossible to use to dial numbers - as I mainly use this to select friends off a contact list for Skype calls this does not bother me as much as it will bother other people.
4. The phone's headphone socket has a pointless and cheap rubber cover. If you actually use this a few times the rubber degrades and the plug cannot be re-inserted. Minor point? yes - but a sure sign that whoever tested this phone DID NOT CARE.

and now a MAJOR point.

5. The phone is likely to FAIL. The LCD screen on my phone has started to fail after almost a year. Each day a few more pixels seem to have failed. By now almost half the screen does not work, leaving partly formed digits and letters. I can just about make out the names of people I know for Skype dialling - and that is with some difficulty. I am unlucky? I know of one other person who has had the phone for the same length of time - she has THE SAME PROBLEM. Either a rare fault happened to occur for 2 people or the phone has a faulty lcd.

Great concept - disappointing implementation.

Excellent piece of kit. Simply plug into your phone line and a USB port on your computer and Skype becomes easy! All you Skype contacts are shown on the LCD. Should you want to use SkypeOut all that nonsense about adding +44 to UK calls is redundant, just enter the number as usual. The only difference is you leave the area on for local calls.
Until you get a truly stand alone Skype phone that is not reliant on a computer, this is the best solution.

I brought my dualphone in November 2005 and have no regrets. It has all the standard functions of a digital cordless phone plus the ability to connect to a PC via an USB port. This enables it to be fully compatiable with Skype and even show you who is online on its backlit lcd text screen. The phone enables you to make free skype to skype calls and Skype out calls away from the computer in another room. The dual phone web site has regular updates. Two minor negative points are your computer has to be switched on in order to use the Skype service and the software does not automatically update, so you have to visit the web site and check for updates yourself. Over all I think this is an excellent product and currently the best available cordless phone for Skype as it allows you to manage both standard landline and Skype calls. Theoretically if everyone you knew subscribed to skype you would never have to pay for a phone call ever again!
