In February 2012, I posted a review of a new headset that I had just purchased. The review, titled Plantronics Savi W745 headset – a review, provided a quick overview of the 745 headset and I gave it the following recommendation:
This headset is easy to setup and is crystal clear. Highly highly recommended. If you have multiple devices like I do, check this headset out…it is worth the money. More than worth the money.
I just wanted to do a follow-up to that review. Here we are a little over 4 years later and the Plantronics Savi W745 is still going strong without a single problem. The headset has survived a move from Dallas to Tulsa, it has been dropped many times, thrown across the room (accidentally of course), had water spilled on it (more than once) and it just keeps working.
I’ve got the headset connected to a Cisco SPA525G VOIP phone, my macbook pro via a usb cable for Skype /facetime calls and my iPhone via bluetooth. When I get a call on one device, all I have to do is hit the ‘answer’ button on the headset and I’m connected.
I couldn’t be happier with the money I spent 4 years ago….and I’m quite surprised that an electronic device purchased 4 years still works. That’s actually the sad part isn’t it? I expected to get about a year out of this headset and was happy when I got 2…but 4 years of daily use is phenomenal in the world we live in today.
To second my review from 4 years ago…if you are looking for a headset and have multiple devices, get this Savi headset (or an updated model if they have one…but I don’t see any new versions out there).
