Top customer reviews
* The EL52100 has a much better speaker in the base unit. Messages can be played back louder and the sound is clearer.
* The buttons on the base unit are easier to use and they are labeled clearly so you can read their functions easily.
* The display on the handset is smaller and not as easy to read, though still usable.
* The base unit is fairly industrial looking and not as aesthetically pleasing as the EL52213.
* You apparently cannot add additional handsets to your system later on if you decide you want them.
* You have fewer choices as far as the number of rings that you can choose before the answering machine picks up.
If you are looking for a basic cordless phone with answering machine, this unit should meet your needs. It is a no-frills unit but it works satisfactorily. In my tests, I found that neither model's battery life was as good as my Panasonic cordless phone, especially if the base unit lacks power or is unplugged. If the base unit doesn't have power you cannot make calls even if your phone line is working. You cannot get a battery backup for the base unit. For both models, whenever the power goes out, you have to reset the internal clock. I don't understand why they could not include a small coin cell to retain the time. This is hugely annoying if you live in an area where you have power interruptions. However if you pay your local phone company for caller ID service, you can have the system set its time automatically that way. If you need to be able to listen to your messages in a noisy room, model EL52100 would be a better choice because the base unit has more power. The audio quality of both models is less than stellar but it is understandable. I hope my review will help you make the right choice for you.
The range seems pretty good. The sound is loud and clear, not extremely loud, but better than I've heard on many cordless phones I have trouble hearing on. The phone can be wall mounted. All the functions seem to work reliably. The clock / calander sets itself with caller ID info the first time you get a call after a power outage.
I've seen reviews stating the ringer can't be turned off. That is false. The base ringer can be turned off using the volume controls on the base and the handset ringer can be turned off in the menu. You have full volume control over both ringers and there are many ring tone choices.
There are a couple complaints about shortish talk time on the battery pack. That may be true. The phone uses a battery pack made from 2 NiMH AAA cells rated at 400mAh. Decent cells are rated much higher these days. I'm going to make my own pack using 1000mAh cells, which should more than double the talk time, but will also increase the charge time from empty.
All in all, it seems like an exceptionally nice phone at a bargain price. But, it may not be for you if you tend to have long phone conversations, unless you replace the battery pack with a higher capacity one. There are higher capacity battery packs available for this phone, just search the model number and add the word battery. I saw several 750mAh packs that would almost double talk time over the stock battery.
EDIT: I did make my own battery pack using two 1000mAh AAA NiMH batteries and the connector from the stock battery. I recently did a 2-hour phone training session using the phone and the battery wasn't even half drained. So, I can now say for sure talk time is beyond excellent with an upgraded battery. Not sure how long the stock battery would last because I replaced it soon after buying the phone. Still like this phone very much!!! It's probably well worth the price, even if you have to upgrade the battery. You may have noticed there are few other phones in the price range that even work properly and many are getting horrible reviews.
