Very Close
 
With the CIT400 Linksys comes very close to having a 5 star gadget. I'll break my review into several parts. Setup: 5 stars - it couldn't have been easier. I plugged the base station into my home network and turned the power on. It was that simple within a few minutes I was making calls. I already had a Skype account so I'm not sure how simple it is the sign-up via the phone. Design: 3 stars - the phone feels like it was designed by a router company. Nothing really...

Skype works but not very user friendly
 
I use Skype as my only long-distance service, and wanted to be able to use it without being tethered to my computer by a headset, or if the computer is off. I also use a land line for local calls, and as a backup when my internet connection goes down. Since the CIT400 can handle both skype and a land line, and I don't want two phones on my desk, it seemed like an ideal solution. As Borat would say... NOT. Why? While the sound quality is fine, the phone is extremely inconvenient to use. Some exam...

Great for Mac Owners!
 
I have a mac and am trying to supplement my & my wife's cell phone usage with the computer. We have a family plan through cingular and pay about $100 a month, and we don't have a land line at home. I tried getting a uConnect adapter to hook up a normal cordless phone and realized that calls would not ring through the phone and I had to dial out on the computer to make calls.... very annoying. As far as I know there is no way to hook up a mac to a normal cordless phone and have it be usefull. ...

Short-term usage is positive
 
Got this thing a week ago and had it hooked up in about 10 minutes. Base station plugs into your network and your POTS line. The handset gets charged for a few hours and when you bring it up it asks for your Skype username and passwords. Having been a Skype user for months, it figured out who I was and pulled down my address book. Very easy setup (not sure how more difficult it would be for a non-previous Skype user), and it doesn't need the computer to work. So far, call qualit...

Additional handsets supported but not available
 
If you are interested in a multi-handset setup. Don't be fooled by the product description or the user manual which states several times that multiple handsets are supported.They might be supported, but you won't be able to purchase any additional handsets.

Excellent product
 
I previously owned the Linksys CIT200. This phone was great, but required the computer to be on all the time. It also had a tendency to disconnect from the Skype program, which was easily fixed by unplugging the usb connection, and reconnecting. This didn't please my wife however. My love of inexpensive phone calls led me to purchase the CIT400 as a solution. Setting up the phone could only be easier if someone came to the house and took it out of the box for you. Just plug it in, enter yo...

Buggy firmware
 
Great look and feel. Very easy to setup and was up and working in 5 minutes. The handset is very nice. However, periodically the unit will get stuck in startup mode and one gets the message "System is starting up" on the handset. On previous occasions a simple power-off/on cycle fixed the problem. However, my unit never got out of the start-up phase within 20 days of the product. The technical support folks at Linksys were very helpful, but could not get the problem fixed and asked me to return...

The BEST Skype phone !! Unbeatable ! Superb !
 
If the CIT 200 was great !!! This one is "just" SUPERB !! Really a MUST HAVE ! I always wanted to have the stand alone Skype phone, and the reason I waited and did not jump on the "mobile-like ones" was the battery factor and the issues aabout logging on other networks when you were away from home... Now this one is just THE ONE !! plain and simple.. Installation could not be more simple. Take out of the box, plug at your cable modem (or a rout...

Only works some of the time
 
Have had this phone for several weeks now. I also use a quality of service packhet conditioner on the line to ensure voip calls get priority.When it works the phone is fine. Howeverevery 2 or 3 days it decides to reset itself to default values. That means it looses the area code entered, preference, everything back to standard factory settings. There is no warning that this has happened, no rhyme or reason to it.(the phone is used about 1 to 3 feet from the base station)<...

Not too good
 
I preordered this phone. Very "plasticky" cheap feel to it. Although sound is OK, I find it has more functional problems. It has backlight for numbers but they forgot to make the numbers in the keys transparent so you can see there is light BEHIND the keys but it does not come through them so you can't see them in the dark. If you want to skypeout and dial +1 and the number but make a mistake and press the green phone key you are dialing through your land line. Ok, so you bring up the call...
