Pros: Works well with Google Voice; can add up to four Google Voice numbers.
Cons: Still having trouble with faxing. Website feels a little clunky. Not having built-in WiFi but having to rely on a separate WiFi dongle is a little annoying.
Overall Review: Worth getting for that work-from-home environment.
Pros: Nice and bright without being totally blinding, assuming you've got a diffuser on.
One-button control is easy to figure out.
Cons: Shuts off rather quickly (~20-30 minutes) if it's not on-cable while lit.
Diffuser tabs may interfere with the micro-USB cable if the cable's hosel is thick.
Overall Review: If you're looking for a simple light to keep yourself lit on a video call, and can keep it on-cable the whole time, this will work. I bought two and am generally pleased. The peach diffuser works best for me for indoor purposes; the white one is better when outside at dusk.
Pros: Reasonably good battery life.
Good audio quality when playing music.
Cons: On Zoom, Teams, or Discord calls? Audio quality is terrible to the point of almost unintelligible.
Boom mic doesn't work at all on Linux, and frequently fails on Android as well.
Overall Review: I wanted to be able to walk around during meetings, and earbuds weren't cutting it for me. I was hoping for an over-the-ear solution at a reasonable price, but this wasn't it. Keep looking.
Pros: Lightweight but sturdy enough to hold a large laptop with room for a mouse.Wipe-down ridiculously easy.
Cons: Surface scratches easily.
Overall Review: I bought two more after I got the first one. It's great for working from home on the front porch, and as a quick table indoors as well when needed.
Pros: Easy to use controls on both unit and remote.Tip-over guard is quite handy.
Cons: No instructions in or on the box.Adjuster bar for tilting the head strips the screws off the back waaay too easily.Too much heat escapes off the top and not to the front.There's almost no heat at the low (500W) setting.
Overall Review: You can forego the middle pipe of the stand to keep it lowered; I found that helped out a bit.If you have a covered porch or garage, it's probably fine, but my porch doesn't have any roof or overhangs, and it's not as effective.
Pros: Very comfortable and supportive.
Adjustments are easy.
Assembly pretty simple; took only 10 minutes with two people.
Cons: Minor cracks in the plastic around the reclining lever. Cosmetic; doesn't affect function.
Top pillow hard to keep aligned, but maybe we're using the strap doohickey wrongly.
Overall Review: Still good, very happy.
