A phone for the modern home. If you've dropped your landline, and use skype for your calls, you may feel like something is missing while tethered to a headset. IPEVO's Skype USB Handset is a great alternative to bringing a phone back into your home. The design impressed us, as it was lightweight, compact, yet easy to use.
We also think the "hollow" mouthpiece design, an attempt to minimize echo effects, is an added bonus. The phone itself sits innocuously in a small base and could disappear into any desk. We really liked the division it allowed between phone activity and your computer activity. With Skype's caller ID available on the phone, you're able to use it much like a standard landline.
Available in either white or black, they retail for around $45. There is a cheaper LCD-less version that costs half as much, but it's the LCD screen that sets it apart from a standard computer-based phone.
