This review is from: Plantronics Savi W740 Multi Device Wireless Headset System (83542-01)
Pros: Super lightweight unit. Phone + PC + Cell phone all on one device! No software needed, just works. Easy to use. Over-the-ear bracket very comfortable.
Cons: Some better features do need software install on PC. Confusion on switching devices. Not the best hardware quality from Plantronics. Sound quality also less than norm for Plantronics. Over-the-head bracket gets really hot on ear. Behind-the-head bracket very flimsy and difficult to use.
Other Thoughts: I've been using this for about 1 day now, and I like the unit over all. I've used Plantronics for years and stick with them due to past quality. This device however doesn't seem to have the same quality as past Plantronics devices. Both in the hardware, as it seems extremely flimsy, and the sound quality which is much more "tinny" than previous Plantronics devices I've used. I did find the over-the-ear bracket on this unit one of the most comfortable I've used. I usually hate these types, but this one is very good. The other two brackets didn't impress me, as the over-the-head one made my ear VERY hot. And the behind-the-head bracket just didn't seem to want to work well for me.
I like the unit overall, and will use it a lot with all 3 connectivity abilities it has. Enough for 5 stars. But I'm concerned that this is the new pattern for Plantronics with cheaper materials and construction lending a less robust device.
