Have you ever felt like you want to experiment with HDVoice but just can’t justify the cost? Would you like to try a truly superior SIP desk phone…but are facing a serious budget crunch? We all face such issues from time to time. I am reminded of this as I find that VUC sponsor E4 Technologies has come into possession of a group of refurbished Polycom phones, and is selling them off at some pretty attractive prices.
Their most recent shipment of refurbished Polycom goods includes some Soundpoint IP650s, IP550s and even Soundstation IP7000 conference phones. All these models (pictured above) are G.722 / HDVoice capable. For the truly budget conscious they also have some entry-level Soundpoint IP331 models that are not HDVoice capable.
With the coming of the holidays perhaps this is just the thing you need to affordably upgrade the VoIP Geek in your life?
Notice: On the basis of my personal experience with E4 I recommend them as a vendor, and I do use Polycom gear. I have no direct connection to either E4 Technologies or Polycom. I do appreciate the fact that E4 sponsors the VoIP Users Conference.
The HP mini 5102 has only been shipping for a few months. I’ve only had mine for about a month. Even so deals are starting to show up.
These corporate class netbooks are head & shoulders better than the consumer offerings you’ll see at retailers. Today’s email list of overstock and refurbished systems from the HP SMB Outlet includes 20 different configurations of the 5101 & 5102…starting from only $297!
The SMB Outlet even have a number of systems that are not the Smart Buy configurations.The Smart Buy configs are kinda bland, but faster to ship. To get the more interesting options you had to order a custom configuration and have it made to order. This is why it took three weeks to get delivery of mine…and it cost just shy of $800.
I routinely buy refurbished items through the HP Business Outlet for refurb’s & overstock. Last time one of their sales staff started sending me his daily list of available merchandise. There’s usually a handful of HP thin clients being offered as shown in the following screen shot.
