The Polycom VVX 201 is a low cost entry level business media phone suitable for common areas and cubicle workers. Similar to the Polycom VVX 101 in design and execution, the device is ultimately a mid range baseline phone that brings Polycom's high standards to a basic option.

Polycom VVX 101 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24

The Polycom VVX 101 is the entry level phone in the successor line to the Polycom Soundpoint IP. The previous VVX line was a wonderful leap forward in design and functionality, which utilized recent software innovations to inspire designs in hardware. Polycom also engaged in forward thinking with the release of its UC 4.0 software.

Polycom VVX 600 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24

The Polycom VVX 600 is an upgraded version of the Polycom VVX 500, the first phone we reviewed out of Polycom’s expanding line of Business Media Phones. The two phones are nearly identical in build, except that the newer VVX 600 has a larger capacitive touch screen (4.3” wide, 480 by 272 pixels versus the smaller VVX 500’s 3.5”, 320 by 240 pixels). Like the VVX 500, the 600 comes with an RJ-9 headset port, and two USB ports. The phone comes standard with PoE support, which means if you're not planning on using PoE, the power supply accessory is extra. The VVX 600 supports 16 line appearances, 4 more than the VVX 500.

Polycom VVX 1500 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24

Industry giant Polycom is no stranger to telepresence and video conferencing solutions. They have a complete portfolio of telepresence and HD video solutions that range from what they call ‘immersive telepresence’ all the way down to ‘personal telepresence’. ‘Immersive telepresence’, according to Polycom, provides a “natural, across-the-table experience where every meeting participant is shown in true-to-life dimensions”. Their ‘room telepresence’ solutions are optimized for conference halls and lecture rooms while ‘personal telepresence’ solutions cater to individuals or small team workspaces. None of these categories have products that are particularly wallet-friendly. I suppose that's always been a part of the problem with trying to get people on board with video calling. The perception is that it’s just too darn expensive, and in many cases, it's true. For small and medium sized businesses that don’t have an enormous communications budget, these solutions often don’t make economic sense.

Polycom Soundstation IP 6000 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24

The Polycom Soundstation IP 6000 and 7000 VoIP conference phones were first introduced back in 2008 to replace the aging IP 4000 model. Earlier this year, the more petite IP 5000 was released for smaller conference rooms and executive offices. Together, these three models make up all of the currently available SIP VoIP hardware in the company’s long-running Soundstation series, a line of conferencing products that goes back to the company’s beginnings in the early 1990s. If you’ve ever wondered why we say Polycom speakerphones are a cut above the rest, now you know—they’ve been perfecting it for almost 20 years!

Polycom Soundpoint IP 550 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24

If you know anything about IP telephones, then you also probably know about the Polycom Soundpoint IP 550/650 models. Polycom has long since established itself as a leader in the industry and high-end devices like the 550 show why it deserves the attention. In short, this is a good phone. In fact, it’s a very good phone. The question is whether or not this phone is right for you, and if it’s worth spending that little bit extra for the added benefits.

Polycom Soundpoint IP 335 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_grey_24

One of the first phones we reviewed as part of our OnSIP team reviews series was the Polycom Soundpoint IP 331, the direct successor to Polycom’s 330 model. At the time, one of the few complaints we had about the Polycom 331 was that the phone did not support wideband audio--but then again, the 331 was an entry-level phone, and few if any entry-level-priced IP phones featured HD voice.

Polycom Soundpoint 331 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_orange_24 star_grey_24

The Soundpoint 331, Polycom’s new desktop phone, is a direct replacement for the Soundpoint 330, the brand’s entry-level IP phone. The two phones are identical except that the 331 has additional memory to support future feature enhancing SIP software upgrades expected in late 2010. According to 888voipstore, the Soundpoint IP 331 is a “cost-effective solution for cubicle workers as well as call center operators who use a ‘hard’ phone in conjunction with a ‘soft’ client running on the PC”.
