Guide Review - Snom 300 IP Phone

The Snom series comes in three similar models: 300, 320 and 360. There is a big price gap of around a hundred or more dollars between the 300 model and the other two. That is one of the main reasons I prefer the Snom 300 over the others. Many of you might, however, choose the two others, since according to many users, the plus you get from the Snom 360 is well worth the price. Here are some of the differences:

The backlight
Snom 300 - 2 X 16 character display
Snom 320 - 2 X 24 character backlit display
Snom 360 - 128 X 64-pixel backlit display

Display Lines
Snom 300 - 4 lines
Snom 320 - 12 lines
Snom 360 - 12 lines

Snom 300 has two Ethernet ports allow you to connect to a LAN and a PC at the same time. The phone has full-duplex speakerphones, which is quite rare in phones of this level.

The phone has programmable function keys that allow for the configuration of six free users and administrator.

Also, multiple lines can be allocated. Call centers find it interesting since it is equipped with what is becoming popular as phone feature - a level of flexibility that enables personal adaptation of the phone to specific uses and behavior.

The voice quality of the phone is quite good, but not exceptional. The quality can be compared to other phones within this price range on the market.

This German phone solves the problem of power compatibility. It is accompanied by a power supply which accepts mains cords in the US, Europe and elsewhere in the world.

The Snom 300 phone is a nice phone for its price which can fit into many environments: at home, in the office, in call centers and business etc. If you prefer better presentation and more features, you can opt for Snom 320 or 360, but with a considerable increase in price.
