I recently had the opportunity to test the Futiro Luna USB VOIP phone with Skype Pro. The Luna has been a major asset on my desk in the past weeks, making it easy for me to both call and answer from a sleek, slim phone connected directly to Skype. Not only does the Luna look great, it also sounds great, and it even includes a speaker phone mode.
On the front side there are 16 buttons and a volume control. The buttons include 0-9 keys, #, *, a call button, hang up button, back button and a speaker phone button, with an LED above that to let you know the status. Near the top sits the standard speaker, and on the back is the speaker phone (mic and speaker). It is slightly weighted, so it will not topple over, and features a coiled USB cable.
The Luna has integrated very well into my workflow. For the last few days I stopped making calls with my land line and used Skype Pro. I found it to be almost flawless. It integrated perfectly with Skype Pro, and behaved exactly as a traditional phone would.
Using Skype Pro, the call quality was fantastic. I even had a comment from someone who I was speaking with asking how I got my phone to be so clear. At $3 per month, Skype Pro is super affordable, especially considering it includes unlimited calling within the United States and Canada, free voicemail, and a discount on a SkypeIn phone number.
For me, the Luna was almost perfect. I would have preferred a longer USB cable, but I was able to easily deal with this issue by adding a USB extension cable in.
Despite some issues in the beginning with the Futiro Luna’s software, it is an amazing product. Along with Skype Pro, it is a perfect solution for long distance calling. I would recommend this product to everyone who frequently uses Skype, or to those who make many long distance calls.
