We've got some GXV3000s around. Overall, the voice quality isn't bad.
It's no Polycom, but it's as good as the rest of the Grandstream line --
no better, no worse. Video quality is actually excellent, and it's a
The firmware, however, has Grandstream's usual issues and bugs. The
biggest one that annoys us is that the screensaver for the LCD works
when you boot up the phone. However, after the phone rings, the
screensaver turns off and won't work again until you reboot the phone.
It also suffers the same issues with most of the Grandstream's regarding
NAT. They seem to be unable to do a keep-alive through a firewall to
keep a proper port open, so they'll routinely lose their RTP streams
after a short period of active time. We've had to port-forward incoming
RTP ports directly to the inside Grandstreams, which makes DHCP
unusable. However, that did solve the RTP issues.
We've had that issues with all the Grandstreams, though.
Our staple phones are still Snom 320s. Inexpensive, durable, and
reliable. But no video.
