Comments on Recent Purchases

  • Curtis: about 18 months ago, I purchased a new system (better camera and micrphone). It is the VSX 5000 unit, which was about $3000. Refurbished units are about 2/3 of that. I also bought a VTX1000 phone/micrphone extension which is about 700 new and 400 refurbished. ur VTX 1000 unit provides the phone-line connection.
  • Paul: We purchased a new system polycom QDX 6000 in December for $2800 from www.govconnection.com (you can get a better educational price if you call). So far, we have been happy with the system. The only downside was that our old polycom .H323 system also doubled as a teleconference system. The new system does not connect to a phone line. I do not know if VSX 5000 does.
