Had high hopes after reading the description and reviews. With so many products on the market today, we can find remarkable products at great price. After using for 3 days I determined this is neither remarkable or a great price, so returned it and will likely go back to Panasonic.
- well packaged, simple to set up
- lots of features
- good volume level as stated
- speakerphone is easy to turn on/off and had reasonable volume
- multiple tone settings so you can adjust the sound to meet your preference/hearing needs
-lacks the refinement/product maturity you find in a Panasonic or Uniden cordless phone
-ringtones are so shrill I had turn them off and rely on other phones in the house to alert to an incoming call
-announcement of the caller ID is a great feature, but this phone also speaks the numbers as you dial them. Cannot independently control these two features. Should be able to turn off the dialing option and leave the caller-ID announcement on.
-speakerphone is not full duplex (which I would not expect in a low-cost device, but was hoping a phone this expensive would have full duplex) so same old problems of having to wait for caller to stop speaking, conversations are not as natural as desired.
