    I use Polycom IP501/550's. They have a Ethernet pass through port and understand VLANS. I don't actually use the pass through port normally although I have a couple of places where I do. No problems.

    We've got HP 4120s here (Lync 2010 VoIP) which have the second NIC for a PC and haven't had any issues on desktops and even a printer!

    Use both scenarios without issue on our Cisco. Do check though that if you want Gbit to the desktop that the phone is 10/100/1000 compatible.

    We use Cisco Phones like this. The phone is on vlan 4 and the PC can we on any VLAN you specify. The config is done on the Cisco switch.
