Summary: Purchased as a replacement unit for my dying V-Tech units: I like how compact and good-looking it is. All the visual design aspects have been well thought out by Motorola. Unfortunately for them, as it's sold as a 'voice-transmitter', it also happens to be the one thing it's not so good at. Oh, let's call a spade a spade: it fails as a telephone, hence the two star rating from me. If it were a really easy fix, I'd trade it for something better in a heartbeat.
Pros: Comfortable Handset, Compact design, Easy To Setup, Pretty
Cons: Lacks Features, No handset jack, NO HEADSET JACK, No keys backlight, Overpriced, Poor Sound Quality, Poor Value, Produces Static, Unintelligible speaker
Summary: I bought this phone a month or so ago but I need to get another one soon! This phone is so lightweight and unstable it definitely is not suitable as a bedside phone. The sound quality is scratchy and sounds like it is breaking up . I can't even use it in another room as an extra phone it is so bad.
Summary: I concur with most of what the others have said, both positive and negative but my phone has an extremely high pitched noise - think dog whistle - that lasts for a couple of minutes at the beginning of a phone conversation but then usually disappears, it drives me bonkers. It isn't super loud, you can still have a conversation but enough that it feels like me ears are ringing. Lastly I don't find the volume sufficient, and yes it is turned up.
Summary: It's so hard these days to find a good, basic, single-line phone that isn't prepackaged with an answering machine or additional handsets. The Motorola L301 fits the bill perfectly. And, of course, reasonably priced extra handsets are available if you want them. Add to that the fact that the phone is fairly easy to set up and has a short "getting-used-to" period, and what more could you want?
Pros: Comfortable Handset, Compact design, Easy To Set Up, Good Sound, Good Speakerphone, Strong Signal, Wide Range
Summary: It's so hard to find a basic, single-line phone these days that (a) doesn't include a message machine and (b) doesn't come pre-packaged with (and pre-priced for) additional handsets. This phone fits the bill. (And, if you're so inclined, reasonably priced additional handsets are available.) The phone is a cinch to set up and works perfectly. What more could you want?
Pros: Comfortable Handset, Compact design, Easy To Set Up, Good Sound, Good Speakerphone, Wide Range
