I love the good-looks, clarity, range, security, features, handset weight + size & blue backlighting on both the corded unit's display as well as the handset keypad & display...also cool ring tones.
I had a unique requirement...I have a Plantronics S11 headset & headset amplifier that I discovered were NOT compatible with the Uniden phone system...I was getting this bad echo. Upon calling Plantronics, apparently most corded/cordless phones have this issue with the Plantronics S11...I figured a way around the issue though by splitting the line in two, pre-s11 & running my headset system through a secondary phone (AT&T 957 business phone)...meanwhile hooking up the other end of the split line to the Uniden phone system, thus giving me all of the cordless capabilities of of the Uniden & it's 4 handsets + echo-free operation of my headset...WHEWWW!...moral of the story...call Plantronics for a list of compatible systems BEFORE investing in a new phone system! Hope this helps someone out there!
A few things I like about this set are as follows: 1) the number of handsets included were the exact amount I needed 2) the blue light lights up before the ring to alert you 3) the handsets are slim and comfortable in the hand 4) living in the hurricaine state, it is necessary to have a corded phone.
The only thing I don't like is something I found out after the fact that I just thought all newer model phones had; a headphone jack. Overall, we are enjoying the new set.
The price was good, shipping was fast. These are not compatable with my other uniden phones. Phones are very sensitive. Most of my conversations are cut off or dropped, like a cell phone. I like the look, but I like the bigger ones better and was easier to see and use. All in all I really don't like these phones.
I got this phone system to expand my Uniden Whole House VoIP Phone System UIP160P from Packet 8. I have the system with 5 handsets and all work flawlessly The phone has a corded base phone/answering system that works with your old phone system when the power goes out. This system does have a few quirky features. Every handset has its own phone book. You have to save a call to the phone book on each hand set, you can even have a call from a certain number ring one way on one handset, a different ring on another handset, or not ring at all on a particular handset. There is a feature to add caller info to all handsets, but you can't do it all at once, you have to add it to each handset one at a time. Overall this is a great system with lots of features and is fairly simple to use, just keep the manual handy for the first few weeks.
I bought this to have corded phone for use during power outages and to have extra handsets to keep in various rooms. Instructions not too hard to follow. Loose signal at distance when body gets between phone and house. Reaches a good distance if nothing between phone and house. Voice at distance much better than my old Uniden phones. Have more difficulty finding old caller ID than old phones--too easy to push wrong button and lose track. Think price very reasonable.
