This review is from: Obihai OBI100 VoIP Telephone Adapter with Google Voice & SIP
Pros: No more monthly telephone bills!
Call US and Canada for free!
Easy to set up
International calls are reasonable
Free obi100 to obi100 calls if in another country
Cons: Don't know how long the "free-ness" will last. If google voice starts charging, you're S-O-L. (But even if they did, I doubt it's as expensive as what I'm paying now.)
Not worth it if you have DSL that requires a phone line.
Occasionally needs an update, which my parents don't know how to do... so may require a trip home to fix if given to the less tech savvy.
No 911 calls
Other Thoughts: Other people keep taking these from me =_=
Originally got one for myself, then decided to give it to my mom when I found out she had relatives in Canada that she calls regularly. Ordered another one that somehow ended up at my sister's when she found out how the one at my mom's work (which is okay since she has kids and wanted a phone line for the school and such). Ordered a 3rd one for myself and my mom wants me to send it to her sister in in another country so she can make free calls.... Sigh. Time to order a 4th one... :/
Pros: 1. Silent
4. No heat
Cons: 1. Windows 8 is kind of difficult to figure out -- but that's a platform thing, not anything against the laptop
Other Thoughts: Purchased it when it was a really great deal. Very happy and highly recommended. Stylish, Cute, Light weight. Perfect for college. Everything I was looking for in an "affordable" portable laptop.READ FULL REVIEW
