Excerpt: Basic 4 line telephone for small office use. No call waiting. Make sure your read the installation info before you have someone come to wire, or you may end up having to call them back to re-wire. Each separate telephone requires two separate jacks: one jack for lines 1 & 2 and one jack for lines 3 & 4. HINT: if you place a call on hold and someone picks up the line on a different phone, your phone will beep (annoyingly) every few seconds.
Excerpt: The phone is all nice and pretty, but I was shocked that despite the screen shown (similar to the old phone we are replacing), there is no caller ID on this phone. Who makes an office phone without caller ID these days? Now we have to return it. Grrrrrrr.
Summary: This phone is perfect for my home office. My house does not have enough phones lines for all for but I am using two of the four lines. I did not know that you needed 4 phone lines but not to big of a deal for me. The price was great and the phone has the look and feel of an office phone, which made my office look for professional... Would purchase this phone again!!!
Pros: Many options and 16 one-touch auto-dial numbers Scan through missed calls
Cons: Speakerphone. I do not understand how this can go unmentioned by others on NewEgg. The speakerphone is completely useless. It does not catch the first several spoken words, and drops words intermittently. We have 4 units in our office, and all 4 exhibit the same behavior. Because of this, I admittedly have not gotten familiar with the other features, as I cannot wait for the day where we join the present century and either go VOIP or get a decent phone system that can...
Summary: The unit is an excellent purchase for the amount having paid, if I had to pick one thing to change about the phone it would be the "robot male" sound in the answer end, a soft female voice is what I would prefer, but nothing else. Great Phone.... Thank You.
