Uniden DCT648-3HS
Pros
* Bright easily read display
* Phone is small and fits in hand nicely
* Message notification light on handset and blinking led on base
* Messages can be accessed on any handset as well as base
* Handsets can be named (example: bedroom, living room, etc.)
* Speakerphone in handset and base
* When using the speakerphone on handset and base the other caller couldn't tell that I was using a speakerphone
* Very good volume on handset, and equally as good using the speakerphones on both handset and base
* Speed dial numbers can be assigned to numbers 1 thru 0 on the keypad
* Battery condition icon
* DirectLink Mode (a pair of handsets can work like walkie talkies away from the base unit)
* Room Monitor (one phone can call another and the second phone will turn on the speakerphone allowing you to listen in that room)
* Different ringers can be assigned to a phone number in the directory, so when that particular person calls that melody or ringer will sound.
Cons
* I was frequently getting a tinny sound coming from the handset. Also was hearing my voice in earpiece on the handset which is quite annoying.
* In the speakerphone mode on the handset the sound is constantly getting low then comes back.
* Only a 2 digit pin code for accessing messages (I wish phone manufacturers was use at a minimum, 3 digits. It wouldn't take much for somebody to guess a two digit number)
Conclusion
Uniden seems to have done their homework when designing their new 2.4GHz phones, but the issues with the handset and speakerphone detract from an otherwise excellent phone in my opinion.
Other Uniden phones that I've tested in the past have never had the issue with the tinny sound.

I have two phone lines, and each has one of these Uniden systems with a base unit and 3 handsets. The base units sit next to each other, over the top of my computer, and there is no interference.

There are a number of specific things I really like about this system:

- The built-in answering machine can be accessed from any of the handsets. If there is a new message waiting, a light flashes on the handsets to alert you. The base unit also has the option to beep at you until you listen to the message. The answering machine is very customizable

- The handsets have a speaker phone, and I can switch back and forth from speaker phone and I have never had someone on the other end say "are you on a speaker phone? you sound like you're in a tunnel" (like they always did on my old phone)

- You can send the phonebook entries from one handset to another.

- There are lots of ring tones to choose from. You can set up different ring tones for different callers (if you have caller-ID)

- When you want to add a handset to the system, you just place it in the base and voila it's registered.

- You can use the handsets as walkie-talkies away from home. You also use them as a baby monitor.

- The handsets are small and lightweight and accept a headset. I put on my headset, clip the phone to my belt, and can talk for hours.

- With my previous phone, I had constant problems with accidentally hitting the mute button while I was talking. I have never had any such problems with the uniden.

- The battery life seems great. I recall one marathon 5-hour phone call, and the battery was fine.

- The sound quality is great.

- The display is very easy to read. You can name your handsets.

I initally bought these phones before and took them back to the store, thinking I didn't like the small size, in large part because they could never sound as good as 'normal' sized phones. (I have a big head, so there's a long span for a phone to cover. :) So I finally settled on the AT&T E2715B/E1215B, a 2.4 G set with two handsets. However, I kept coming across these Unidens and re-reading the reviews and finally broke down and tried them again.

As a comparison test, I switched back and forth between AT&T and Uniden in both receiving and making calls (left myself messages at work). In normal handset use, the Uniden blows the AT&T away! It has much fuller sound and 'presence' in both listening and speaking, whereas the AT&T sounds like a radio using only a little tweeter. However, I thought the AT&T's speakerphone to have a little better sound. The headset quality is comparable between the two, although each has different tone - the AT&T being more treble, the Uniden having more bass.

That said, I actually prefer the AT&T phone's ergonomic shape and the way it fits my hand, simple uncluttered layout, larger buttons, and green backlight (over the Uniden's garish orange). Just not sure I'm ready to switch to a cell sized phone permanently.

Since I like talking on a headset more than a handset, I did one more comparison test of the Uniden against the 900 Mhz GE cordless headset phone I've used for a couple of years. Both come across with a quite decent sound, but the Uniden comes across a bit louder and clearer.

Some negatives of the Uniden, most not unique to this brand of phone:
1. As noted by others, I've noticed 'burps' with 2.4 GHz phones while using the microwave, not too surprising with both devices working on the same frequency.
