Pros: Looks great. Able to set up phonebook across base and handsets. Able to code in pauses, etc to quickly access voicemail. Uses standard batteries. Group Ringer ID. Haven't tried the answering machine.
Cons: Terrible ringtones. Some are too similar while others just are better suited to a nursery than an office. I read reviews elsewhere that mentioned this and I thought it wouldn't bother me. Beware. No individual Ringer ID. Makes it a bit awkward to set up but it's good to go.
Pros: These are great. They hold a good charge and go a very long range. They are also 2 line compatible so when paired with the 2 line base station you can conference call and use 2 lines. Also the intercom and local conference call options sound good and don't overpower each other like picking up 2 phones on the same line.
Cons: Color being black means they blend-in in an office environment. i with the indicator light on the top was bigger so it would be easier to find when ringing.
Summary: Not really a con for this handset but the two-line base has bluetooth and the signal is weak. Sitting within 3 feet of the base I get static on every headset I've tried, and complaints from people I'm talking to that I'm hard to hear. The handsets are NOT bluetooth capable, which you might expect they would be in a handset that costs this much. They DO have a regular 3.5mm headset jack so if you need to you could carry them around with a headset plugged in and use them.
Pros: This is a satellite handset for a two line (in my case) telephone base. It is capable of operating on line one or line two, which is significant if you have more than one line.
Cons: It's expensive, even considering the two-line capability it costs more than two separate handsets of a similar class of phone. One of the problems with cordless handsets is as you move about with them things can happen to them. They can get lost, fall in a sink full of dishwater, be dropped and broken, etc. At this price point you'll want to be careful you're not replacing handsets due to avoidable accidents.
