I haven't had a look at the Siemens or Motorola ones, but the brands have a good enough reputation that I'd be prepared to trust them.
We went for the Parrot 3000 Evolution in the Clio, mainly because it was the cheapest hands-free option at the time, but also because it's about the most unobtrusive option once installed.
With no display, the 3000 relies on voice control. Frequently used numbers can be sent to the kit via Bluetooth and associated with a voiceprint. Believe it or not, the Parrot's voice dialling is considerably more reliable than the factory system that I have on the Laguna.
Known callers' names are also spoken by the system when the phone rings, giving you the option to answer only to specific people. Caller display and manual dialling are still available from the phone's display and keypad, though you'll need it to be clipped into a dash mount to be legal in the UK.
