Summary: Any type of home phones are ancient anymore but these are great if you want them and not use cell phones all the time around the house.
Pros: Wow!!! Where do I start. They don't die after 40 minutes of usage. Heck they don't die after 5 days usage. I LOVE THESE PHONES. Last phone I had .. Yea bran new out of the box. 1 1/2 day total out of the battery. Yea!!!! These 5 days they finally drop to 2 bards out of 3. Caller ID is beautiful ....
Summary: I have over thirty years professional electronics experience so at first I was skeptical about the longer range and clarity claims that were advertised. But after experiencing it for myself, I can honestly say this is the absolute best phone we have owned over the last fifteen years.
Pros: Great range. Best clarity of any cordless phone I have ever owned, including my last two major Japanese brands! Easy to operate, no extended menus to go through to get to where you need to be. Price was about half of what I have been paying for other brands that were not as good.
