Pros:Excellent Distance & quality, voicemail alert light, great ring variety & volume, battery life
Cons:None after 2 years of ownership
The Bottom Line: Excellent phone that has wonderful sound quality & range. Tons of great (& useful) features. After 2 yrs, still going strong w/great battery life, too.
We've owned this phone for 2 yrs & haven't had a single issue with it. It's easy to set up & use. It has a lot of great features: Caller ID, Ringer Volume (I believe 4 volume settings), Ringer tone (a bunch of rings to choose from ranging from normal ring to classic songs...I have it on Jingle Bells for the holiday season), Speakerphone, Address book (you can even save a phone # & edit the display name), Belt clip....probably missed a few. The battery life is still great after 2 years. One great feature with the expansion set is you can see if someone is already using the phone before picking up - it'll say "in use". We don't use the answering machine, but a voicemail service. My favorite feature is the small orange light that illuminates when charging will blink if someone has left a message on our voicemail system. The Dect 6.0 frequency is the only one to buy - those 5.8 gigahertz have such poor range we could barely walk out the front door with our old phone. This phone I can take across the street to the neighbors & get great reception! If you don't buy this particular model or brand, you MUST buy a dect 6.0 frequency. It truly is the best. I did my research on this phone before hand & purchased it at Office Depot after reading such great reviews. I would highly recommend this phone.
