NEC DT310 DTL-6DE Digital Phone Handset

The NEC DT710 6DE phone is an entry level IP phone in the DT300 series line-up and uses the same handset design platform as the more basic NEC DT710 2E. The difference is the cheaper DT710 2E offers no display, no soft keys and only has 2 programmable line/staff buttons. Although they are both the cheaper DT310 models they are vastly different with respect to usability and features. If you’re after a phone for kitchens, retail showrooms, lobby’s, foyers etc then go for the cheaper 2E model.

NEC DT310 6DE IP Digital Phone Terminal

The NEC DT710 6DE phone is an entry level IP phone from the NEC DT310 digital series line-up and uses the same handset design platform as the more basic NEC DT310 2E . The difference is the cheaper DT310 2E offers no display, no soft keys and only has 2 programmable line/staff buttons. Although they are both the cheaper DT310 models they are vastly different with respect to usability and features. If you're after a phone for kitchens, retail showrooms, lobby's, foyers etc then go for the cheaper 2E model. The better digital phones are from the NEC DT330 digital series handsets .

For an entry level phone the DT310 phone with 6 keys is actually very good. For starters the DT310 offers 4 context sensitive soft keys directly below the screen as well as a help and exit buttons. Context sensitive buttons are keys that present users with the most logical on screen options depending on what feature they are using at any given time. It is incredibly effective and quite common today with most phone brands. It makes daily phone use much easier for the DT 310 6DE phone handset.

The NEC DTL-6DE phone also offers users 6 programmable buttons that are configured in a traditional pbx handset style below the LCD screen. These buttons can be customised however you want to show phone lines, staff, speed dials and even phone functions. On the 6 keys you'll also find multicoloured LED busy light indictors that present with different colours to allow users to quickly and visibly distinguish presence (whether users are busy or free). If you need to see more than 6 staff at a glance you might want to look at the NEC DT330 12D phone handset which has 12 buttons and also features backlighting on the LCD screen for easier onscreen visibility.

If you choose to wall mount the 6DE handset you can also buy an optional bracket which is great for kitchens, warehouses and the like.

The DT310 DTL-6DE phone also comes with excellent call quality and hands free speaker phone. Unfortunately there's no headset port for corded headsets. However if you connect a wireless headset they connect differently and you will have no issues with them although they are the more expensive option.

The NEC DT310 6DE phone also features a silver navigator button at the bottom right of the handset that allows for fast access to system directories, speed dial, redial etc. A lot of manufactures have adopted this on their handset designs because it makes finding names much faster in day-to-day use.

A fantastic feature about the DTl-6DE, as well as previous NEC handsets, is the "help" button. NEC actually has a user guide built in to the handset and its great if you ever forget how to do something. It's only a small thing but strangely for a great idea it's almost unique to NEC phones.

Like all phone handsets you will need a spare port at your desk to connect to the phone system. You will also need another port for your PC. With IP handsets you can actually connect both your phone and PC from the one CAT5 (or better) cable. The IP range is identical in looks and normal features so if you want to go to IP check out the DT710 6DE IP phone . As a rule IP phones are more expensive but some of the benefits include: connecting remote users, hotdesking staff or where you may have limited cables available for all staff. Also when you plug in an IP phone it will automatically register to the telephone system which makes staff relocations a breeze - simply plug in, login and all your customised settings are carried forward, even your extension number.

For most users the NEC DT310 6E is an affordable and very good phone handset option. With the NEC UNIVERGE SV8000 phone system series remember that you can easily mix and match to suit your needs and budget (that includes digital and IP handsets on the same system).
