Late in 2009 my quest for a portable conference phone lead me to try the Ipevo X1-N6 Internet Conference Station. On the surface the X1-N6 has an attractive set of capabilities and a very attractive price point. Unfortunately, the unit that I purchased from my local Fry’s Electronics did not meet my expectations, so after a few weeks I returned it for a refund.
When I posted my experience with that device it caught the attention of the manufacturer. They had some theories as to why the unit I had behaved as it did. They asked me to return to the unit to them for investigation, but by then I had already returned it to the retailer. Since they could not pursue that situation further the manufacturer promised to send me a sample unit when their next production batch arrived from the east.
As you might imagine, I was pleasantly surprised when after several months they again contacted me to say that the new shipment was in hand…and further that one was on its way to me. It arrived on Tuesday.
Some time in the next week or two I’ll be giving it a try, and will certainly post my findings. Many thanks to Ipevo for making good on their offer after considerable time had passed.
Oh, yes. I never did find an ideal solution for a road warriors speakerphone. That search, which started at Astricon 2009, continues. If you have experience with what you found to be suitable hardware I’m certainly open to suggestions.
