good landline phone

Old school question here, folks, but can anyone recommend a good landline (not cordless) phone for an office setting? I had an AT&T 955, but it's gone buggy (buzzy, actually) on me. I like the aesthetics of it otherwise, but if anyone has any ideas...

I know almost nothing about phones and not much about your needs, but I've got a Panasonic HAC VB-44225-B right next to me that seems to be cutting the bacon. Not sure if that helps.

Oops. Looks like it needs some kind of special digital line. Probably not helpful then. Sorry.

I'm in the same boat... looking back at the days of a nice western electric phone we used to have... built to last. I need one for extensive conference calls from home office. May want to use a headset.

Polycom. They make awesome phones of solid construction with great features especially speaker phones. Check here. Scroll down.

Seconding Polycom. My SE-225 is a lifesaver for conference calls -- it's a fabulous individual speakerphone (also comes with a switchable rear mic in case you occasionally have several people "around"). No special phone line required, I've even hooked it up to Skype via a hardware adapter.
