    Pros: Reasonable price. Functionality of phone and answering machine features. Styling.

    Pros: Looks nice, has a good feel, belt clip is strong
    Cons: Poor range, short battery life, low battery signal comes too late

    Summary: From the minute we got this phone, we noticed that the range was incredibly short. We had been told that we needed a 5.8 Ghz model to avoid interference from a wireless network router, so that is what we bought. We live in a small apartment (maybe 50 ... read more

    Pros: Cordless, answering machine on base, inexpensive
    Cons: What? You want me to wake you up and pour you cocoa? Hello?

    Summary: Apparently I'm dumb. Every single time I go out and buy something without reading the almighty reviews online I always end up burned. But I needed a phone to replace the cordless from ancient times that lost the ability to type the 1, 5, 8 and "Talk" ... read more

    Pros: A lot of features for the money, clarity is excellent, answering machine is flexible
    Cons: Not digital - but who cares?

    Summary: I've used Uniden cordless phones for years and years and have always been satisfied for the most part. I've used cordless phones at other people's homes which were made by other companies and they really didn't measure up, especially on the cheaper ... read more

    Pros: Most features: answering machine, caller ID, ease of use.
    Cons: The only one that matters: being able to have a conversation (RECEPTION).

    Summary: Bought the EXAI5580 for about $25 on Woot.com. Nice style and I like the answering machine. However, as soon as I get over 11 feet away from the base, the reception on all of the 20 channels is just horrible. I have tried pressing the channel button and ... read more

    Pros: Ease of use.
    Cons: Volume goes down sometimes on its own, and cannot hear the person.

    Summary: I bought the phone because the buttons on my old cordless phone stopped working, and so I mainly bought this one because the buttons looked like they would last a while, which has been true. I hardly ever use the phone now though because I cannot hear ... read more

    Pros: Are you kidding me? I have nothing good to say about this piece of crap.
    Cons: I don't have enough time to explain; it's terrible.

    Summary: There is absolutely nothing good about this phone. I have had it for a week, and already it has stopped working. When I press the talk button, the screen blinks a few times, and the phone beeps and turns off as if the battery is too low. Thing is, the ... read more

    Pros: Inexpensive, built-in answerer and caller-ID
    Cons: Poor reception

    Summary: I purchased this phone on-sale to replace an old 900 Mhz cordless phone with answering machine. This phone included answering machine and caller-id, and it is 5.8Ghz so it should also have better reception. Unfortunately, reception is worse in every room ... read more
