I had a Panasonic 2.4gh system that I had had for over 10 years. When it went south I wanted the same setup. I found the Uniden and decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did it's better than the old system. My old system if you dropped the phone it would discharge the battery and you would lose the call and have to recharge the handset before you could use it again. The Uniden has a plug that the battery plugs into so no loss of contact.. The Uniden stores more phone numbers. I don't have to have an answering machine as this one blinks when there's a message on my call notes which is great if the electric goes out because one of my lines is a business line. I also like that I can have more phones attached to the base unit than my last phone and that they have a waterproof one as well since I do have a pool. The base unit is smaller too so it doesn't take up as much room on my end table. The only thing that I don't like is that the phones that aren't the base phone don't have wall mounts. All of the Panasonic's did have this and I liked the phone that I had in my kitchen to be on the wall. Since this is the only drawback I'm very happy with my new phone and will look at buying Uniden again if it lasts as long as my Panasonic did.
I had previously purchased a TRU8866 with one additional handset. Due to an electrical storm surge, my base unit shorted out. I purchased the new TRU8866 base unit with phone and reprogrammed the original two phones to work with the new unit. No problem. The instructions were clear and concise. Now have three portable, cordless phones that work great! This is an exceptionally nice 2-line phone for someone who has a home business and wants the home and business phone number on the same handset. Individual phone numbers can be programmed for ringer tone level and individual handset can turn on/off the ringer. 2nd line also makes phone conferences with two other people easy.
The Uniden works pretty much as advertised. It presents less static than our old Panasonic set, which is why we bought it.
1) The intercom UI is lousy. You have to scroll down a list of stations rather than just entering the intercom extension number. Many keystrokes instead of 2.
2) The handset speakerphone is almost unusable. Everyone I call complains that they can't hear me.
That notwithstanding, a reasonably good system.
Uniden makes good phones, and this is one of their feature-packed model. There aren't many 2-line phones out there that have all the features this model has. However, there is one downside: the voice mail boxes this phone comes "equipped" with, well... aren't quite available: the voice mail buttons ( 2) are in fact designed to work with your local phone company voice mail service (paid monthly). In other words, it doesn't have a digital answering system! The phone can be extended to 10 headsets, can be used as a monitoring device... and what not, but doesn't have an answering system!
This is a good 2 line phone. It sounds good, haven't heard any static yet. The one thing I notice missing is when you try to return a call using the caller ID, the phone does not put a "1" in front of the number stored in the phone. This means that the phone out pulses 10 digits, not 11, for calls to another area code, which means that you dial a wrong number or the call does not go through.
