Polycom SoundPoint Pro SE-225 ($173 at Zones.com) If you miss that slick corporate phone feel in your small office -- and don't mind paying up a bit -- check out the Polycom (PLCM - Get Report) SoundPoint Pro SE-225. For about double the cost of the Panasonic, you get a phone that feels like you are working at IBM (IBM). Most big-phone features are here: caller ID, even on call waiting; a 99-number programmable speed dial; and oodles of history directories and other telephone bells and whistles -- most of which, by the way, you will probably never use. In about a year's testing, I have been particularly impressed with the sound of the conferencing mic. You can even speak over other callers and still understand them. Polycom deserves real credit for this speaker -- and this phone.
