Summary: I have had the phone for 2 years and it works really well. I had to have this type because when comcast installed my phone the only one telephone outlet would work. The only problem I have had is the main base unit, you have to put the phone in just right for it to charge (after about 1 year). I have switched the phones and still did not charge properly unless I pay close attention to how I set the phone in. The other 2 base units have worked fine.
Pros: Inexpensive, Easy to use, Durable, Convenient
Summary: Many advanced features (intercom by handset #, monitor a handset in a different room, etc.)...We typically put phones back on the cradle -- but when not used, battery life has been great -- a problem we had with our last system.I believe the system limits to six handsets, FYI.
Summary: This is an addition to the base unit and 2 satalite units it came with. I have added 2 satalite units to the set total. I love the way you can input phone numbers just like a cell phone and it shows on every unit. We use them alot for the intercom feature due to our house being very large and 3 floors. We do get some crackling on the phones, but I believe that is because the base unit is so far away.
Summary: I bought this phone to add to my set to compliment for use in my shop, which is about 100' away from the house. I needed a good cordless anyway, so it dawned on me to buy another phone for my set. The main reason I bought it is for the intercom feature. I was thinking of buying a hard-wired intercom but decided that this would work perfectly.
