Summary: The voice quality is good with the handset. LCD is adequate in bright to fairly dim lighting. Batteries were expected but still a bit of a bother. I've had the phone about 3 weeks now - no issues. The ringer was flagged in earlier reviews as being too loud. It has 3 settings - really loud, quite audible and off. Those choices were sufficient for me.
Worked for approximately 3 weeks and then non-functional

Summary: One of these telephones (I bought two) stopped working after three weeks. It's ironic that I've received this request for a review today as I was just about to write an email to Amazon to see what can be done.
