Simple, solid phone for the price
on October 25, 2002
After reading tons of reviews for cheap 2.4GHz phones, I stumbled across a few recommendations for this product. I have to admit -- for a ($)phone, it's more than I expected. The handset is very solid and comfortable, and it sports rubber grips on the sides -- why, I don't know, but I'm sure it'll become apparent soon :) The sound quality is superb, except for a slight annoyance -- sometimes, your voice funnels back to the earpiece and it can get pretty loud. I only noticed this during my first call -- after that, it was a non-issue. Perhaps it was due to a low-battery, since I hadn't fully charged it before I made my first call.
The phone has all the basic features of a caller ID cordless phone, and they all work as expected, so I won't elaborate on that. Most people are just concerned about sound quality, and the sound quality on this phone is great. It's also very stylish in a very understated way -- there aren't tons of buttons, lights, and garish colors on this thing, but I like that and it was a factor in my purchasing decision.
Probably the only BAD thing about this phone is the ring volume isn't as loud as I like. I live in a small apartment, so it's not such a big deal, but to some it may be. You have a choice of three ring tones, and the loudest one is the most annoying, sadly enough. If the only drawback to a ($) phone is its ring volume, then I think we have a winner.
