Incoming calls are almost inaudible, even when you turn the volume up as high as it will go. The recorded voice that announces the messages, however, is grating and deafening even at the lowest volume setting. (Can you see where this is going?)
You have to turn the volume all of the way down in order to survive the message announcements, and then all of the way up to hear the incoming messages themselves, and then pray that you get it turned down again in time before the next message is announced. There is nothing in the display, either, that indicates the what the volume setting is at any given time.
The buttons look nice and large and easy to use, but erasing a message on the unit I bought requires multiple mashings of the delete key, and even then it's not a sure bet that the message is gone.
The user's outgoing greeting sounds muddy and garbled when heard from the caller's perspective (I called in from my cell phone to test it out), but is nearly as loud as the pre-recorded message announcement on the receiving end.
If I could give this thing a rating of negative five stars, it still would not be low enough to express my displeasure. I can't wait to go out tomorrow and buy something else.
