Works As Designed - Design Suggestion
Stupid easy to connect, works fine (odd that the lens is purple but the light is red; that's fine, though). I'm thinking I'd like it better if it was more like a domed beacon, to remind me that I've left my headset powered on.

Actually - Only lights when headset is on
The light only comes on if your in headset mode, but not actually on the phone. For example if you just hung up, the light is still on.

I love this product. Can't tell you how many times people will start chatting and I'm actually on the phone listening to the person on the other end. This saves me the headache of hand signals.

Perfect Product
The Plantronics Online Indicator works perfectly with our Plantronics lifter. It lets anyone coming into the office that customer service personnel are on the phone. Makes for a professional sounding business. EASY installation, just plug it in the lifter.

First I want to say I find your costumer service representatives to be awesome. Any time I have inquired about a product they are very professional, polite, efficient, helpful and knowledgeable. As for my online indicator I don't know why I didn't get one sooner it is terrific. No one knew when I was on the phone before because my hair would cover the light on my Plantronics hands free head set. Now everyone knows when I am on the phone.

Good product
Like the online indicator. Wish it had a clip to attach it to monitor, rather than just a flat base. Cord is a good length, lights are attention-getting.

Lights should be on both sides of the unit. At best this unit only gives visability of 180 degs.

Plantronics Online Indicator review
The light stays on after the phone line is transferred to another extension. My Bulb indicator light did not do that. So if I get distracted and don't hang the phone up after transferring, people think I am still on a call.

Plantronics Online Indicator
I really like this product and it has improved people interrupting my calls not knowing I am on the phone. The only thing I dislike is the fact that it blinks. I find it a little distracting and would have preferred a steady light to the blinking or the option of switching back and forth.

Could not do without this little flasher! I needed to put a message above and below - When lights are flashing---I'm on the phone. Most people ask, "What is the light for?"

I love it!!! My co-workers never knew if I was on the phone. Now there is no doubt about it. They tend to be a little quieter when the light it on.
It is really pretty too!

This online indicator for my headset is wonderful. I work in a very busy office and this let's my co-workers know when I am busy on the phone. We all just love it!

What a great idea! Helps fellow co-workers and customers know when you are on the phone so they don't interrupt your phone call!
customer image Dixie Crawshaw
I am very pleased with the indicator however I think I would be more pleased if it was larger. Those that I need to see it when they come in to the office are at least 15 feet from me so I have to continue to point to my headset or the light with a big sign on it telling them that I am on the phone in order to stop them from talking until I get off.

works pretty well
my associates like the product. However I wish it came with double-sided sticky foam for attachment.
customer image First Last
I like the product so far. One comment that was made was that I travel back and forth between several different offices and short of posting something flashing on my forward, other persons still don't know I am on the phone. Is there any such device for persons that are very mobile throughout their day, but very on the phone as well?

Blinking Lights Only
We are a medical clinic and these are very helpful for our doctors while they are dictating over the phone. However, we cannot use them in our Neurology department because of the large number of patients with seizure disorders who might be affected by the blinking lights. Plantronics unfortunately does not offer a "steady" light option and our techs don't think they can do an after-market modification to this model

New flashing lights
This is a major improvement for our call center! People do not walk into my office and start conversations while I am on the phone. The moving lights help attract attention. The device has flexibility and can be used in many locations. A small strip of double-sided tape enclosed in the package, would be nice. We were fortunate to have some available. I have already recommended the device to our front office!

Better Than Expected!
The display light works wonderful! My co-workers appreciate being able to "now" see when I'm on the phone as soon as they walk up. The light isn't ornate or too bright that it draws disruptive attention when the phone is in use. I LOVE IT! Plus....Headsets.com put tootsie rolls in the box with the shipment!!!! Great customer service, thank you :)

Light only indicates you are on the phone if you are using your headset w/lifter; if you pick up the receiver manually the light indicator does not show you are on the line.

Plantronics Online Indicator
This is the 2nd one of these that I have purchased for my office. The first one was for my receptionist and it has helped her profusely by stopping people from just assuming that she isn't on the phone and talking to her. The other one I purchased for myself and it has been great. No more interruptions from unaware people. :)

As simple as this concept is, this is an awesome product. People can now tell that I am on my headset and either wait until the lights go off or come back later. Awesome product that I cannot recommend enough!

Genius Device!
The rating elements really do not apply to this item. I cannot, however, say enough about it. It is an ingenious accessory to a headset. The primary lament of people who come to our busy front office is that they never know when I'm on the phone. Problem solved! The device is mounted on my monitor in full view. First people are attracted to the pretty blinking lights. And then they are grateful for what it does. Would recommend as an essential item to partner with a headset.

I like it but two things - I still had to put a sign up to say if the lights are flashing,I'm on the phone. Also, the phone didn't come with any way to put the indicator up - double sided tape, pins, etc.

This item works as described.The only suggestion would be to include instruction as to where it plugs in. I had to inquire through on-line chat to find out where to plug it in.

I like the indicator. It will help alert others in the office that I am on the phone. They can't tell since I wear the wireless headset. This will give them a way of knowing without interrupting me.

I like the Plantronics Online Indicator, it keeps interruptions to a minimum while on the line, and when I sometimes forget it reminds me to disconnect the call from the headset.
