Summary: I was pleasantly surprised by the audio quality of the phone. I use it almost exclusively with a headset (RJ11) and could immediately notice the difference in the audio quality from my old NRX Evo 350. The microphone also worked considerably better with this phone. The handsfree speakerphone is not very loud but perfectly usable and along with the volume control and secrecy (mute) button it has everything I need in a home office phone.
Summary: This could easily have been 5 stars as it is a good phone at a good price. But even though the handset quality is excellent, there is just too much static and not enough call volume to actually have a conversation using the handsfree mode.
Summary: Simple, solid telephone. Loud ringer and amplifiable handset speaker, which is handy when there's a poor connection or the person on the other end is softly spoken. Speaker phone works well enough for a telephone in this price range - ideal if you're on hold whilst calling a utility company. For the first time ever on a home telephone I've programmed the quick dial buttons which was very easy.
