Easy to set up, expandable, all that good stuff. Easy to read numbers/ buttons, loud ringer. Only reason not 5 stars is because I purchased this because I have a little difficulty hearing. I'm sure using VOiP doesn't help, but this product says it's compatible, and yet, I still have to ask people to repeat things. It's better than other lower prices products by far, and I didn't want to spend a fortune, so, for the price, I'm generally pleased. I love the speaker phone, a definite plus!
*update- not sure how we didn't notice this right away, but this phone does not work when you have to 'make a selection', I can sit there all dang day and press "1" and never get English. But, a family member got ill, life moved on before I could do anything, so when I have to call the bank, DirecTv, etc, I pull out the actual landline and plug it in. I'm lazy I guess. Just noticed this review and am grumpy so decided to finally complain. :) So, dropping from 4 stars to 1star, since it's a pain. And no, it's not just THIS phone. I also purchased a compatible extension elsewhere, same problem. VoIP problem? Don't know. Push a number button, it makes no noise at all when you're actually ON the phone. Booo.
