Plantronics CT12 Cordless Headset Telephone
Multitasking is that who you work, then look out for Plantronics' friendly-roamer, CT12 hands-free. This super handy DSS model having 2.4GHz is pocket sized and also sports a clever headset. Though there isn't an answering machine, and the microphone is not as effective at negating noise, the CT12 is a good choice, more so for home office.
The handset design of the CT12 makes it durable, meticulously thought out, and its dimensions being 4.125" (W) x 3.125" (D) x 4.125" (H), pocket-sized perfectly. It's trimmed, low profile base is attractive. Controls on the keypad have well thought of labeling while maneuvering is a delight, those with bigger hands could feel that the keypad being somewhat cramped. The headset can be put over the head or ear; in both positions you feel ease. In spite of the small size of the device, Plantronics then too managed space to put in comfortably readable 3 line, illuminating LCD. That's not all, our headsets have FireFly, at the mouthpiece fag end there is a red light that pulses as the phone is being used. With our peripheral vision it somehow fell in sync, a little annoying for us though.
Let's have a look at its features; they are quite standard in the Plantronics CT12. There's a quick dialing for ten numbers, phone book memory - 100 names, caller ID supported & call waiting plus ten ring tones. Not included is an answering machine. Because Plantronics CT12 has been made as a hands-free convenient through the headset that come included, you won't find a speakerphone too. The life of the battery is first-rate. We successfully passed the five and a half hour talk time exceeding almost an extra hour, but on the ten day standby battery time the phone could manage somewhat 8 ½ days. You shall be happy with the call quality. As per Plantronics, its model CT12's upper most distance is hundred feet away form the ground unit. Thought it wasn't pushed to the limit the results from a distance of fifty feet were outstanding having negligible to no distortion. Voice clarity was appreciable, yet with tests conducted us, there was quite a bit of behind noise through the CT12's headset noise-canceling system that was what is is meant to do, not awful, but advertised claims weren't met. There was considerable intrusion, may be the reason being that we too work in a Wi-Fi testing setting (Wi-Fi setting use similar frequency as those by 2.4GHz phones). As for overall ratings - the quality is fine, plus the devise works.
Supposing you face intrusion with a wireless hub/router upon working with Plantronics CT12 phone, manual alteration of phone's feed give clearer functioning. TELEPHONE CORDLESS HEADSET from Plantronics (CT12 2.4GHZ) offers thirty-five feeds that routes via upon SELECT/CH key pressed on remote. But choosing frequency manually for routing is not possible as it the unit resets itself automatically when switched off.
To eliminate interference, it can only happen with Plantronics CT12 placed in a separate room other than the computer or else call your wireless service provider and ask them to chance the frequencies of the router. You could request them to stop frequencies used by CT12.
