Phone Selection (color models)

Hi there, I'm looking at Cisco VoIP phones, and was wondering which model would be the lowest price with a color display? My initial research tells me the 7945, but I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything.

Thanks

Hi Shane,

You are most correct my friend :) The 7945/7965 are the lowest priced Color IP Phone models.

Hope this helps!

Thanks Rob, that does help.

Could you give me a quick overview of the differences between the 7945 and 7965? Is it mainly the additional programmable buttons on the right?

Hey Shane,

You are most welcome :) Yes, these models carry on the same type of relationship as the 7940/7960 and 7941/7961 did with the two vs six Line Key buttons.

Here are the Data Sheets for both;

Re: Phone Selection (color models)

Thanks again Rob, I read both data sheets. They mention that the key buttons can be used for "telephone lines (or combination of lines, speed dials, and direct access to telephony features)"

We will only have 2 lines, so I'm curious about what some other uses might be of the keys. Aside from speed dials, what are some typical uses of the "direct access to telephony features"?

Would the "four interactive soft keys" provide the same capabilities?

Re: Phone Selection (color models)

I've used the Programable Line Keys for Speed Dials, Busy Lamp Fields, Service URLs, Intercom Keys, MeetingPlace Express, Some of the Soft Keys like Transfer and Conference. And that was a quick list.

Most of those you can not program on soft keys as they require Programable Line Keys.

Most of our users have 7941s as they only have one extension and I can add whatever PLK they need.

Your decision is totally based on what your users need. I like the extra keys, but I'm a phone geek. :-)

Hi,

Though this Portable Product Sheet would come handy for phone comparison.
