Top Customer Reviews
A couple nice features:
PAGING: you can page any of the other handsets from your current handset. This comes in handy when the wife needs something and can just page me instead of coming down to the basement to find me.
MONITORING: you can monitor any of the handsets remotely from another handset. Just press a button and you'll be listening in on whatever is nearby the handset of your choice.
TALKING ON MULTIPLE PHONES: contrary to a previous poster, you CAN talk on multiple phones at the same time. Perhaps they were thinking of another model, because we talk to our parents on two of the phones at once quite frequently.
ANSWERING MACHINE: We haven't messed with this much, but there are 3 separate mailboxes and you have the ability to check messages through the handsets as well as the base. We haven't had a need for this, but I can see where it could come in handy.
I'm not sure why this phone has received such mediocre reviews. I've been very satisfied with it overall. If you need long range, perhaps you should look at other options. If you're not as concerned with the range and want a solid, nice-looking phone with good features, this is the one.
This product has three mailboxes, each of which is connected to its own light on the base unit when there is a message in it. These lights (actually, more like individual parts of a circle) flash when there is a new message and there is a display of how many messages total there are on the base unit. You can leave yourself voice memos in any of the mail boxes.
The message quality itself is average - a little tinny but not bad. The default announcer's voice is female, robotic, and slightly annoying. You have the ability to record two outgoing messages and easily switch back and forth between them - nice for the holidays, for example.
The handsets are lightweight but slightly awkward ergonomically. You can name and choose from several different ring tones for each handset in order to distinguish them. As noted, there is a paging function that works best if the phones are all on the same floor. The product comes with three handsets and you can add another if you would like.
One feature we really like is the intercom function, which is easy to operate and makes communicating from different parts of the house much more fluid. There is also a function that allows you to monitor sound in any room there is a phone, which could be useful if you have small children... or for other purposes that are beyond the scope of this review.
I've only had the phones for about a month but in that time we haven't had any problems. Reception is good all over the house despite a wireless router, Bluetooth devices, microwave, etc. Pretty happy with the product so far.
