Summary: I got this phone system on sale for a good price and really liked the look of the phone. Unfortunetly it doesn't work as well as it looks. My biggest issue is that it just feels clumsy. The LCD screen is slow to update, and the buttons don't seem to respond quickly. The sound quality is ok.. but didn't sound as good as my Panasonic. Also it had more dropouts than the Panasonic too.
Summary: I have the same complaints about this phone as Robert listed in his March 15, 2009 review. These and the below "nits" make the phone a hassle to use. In addition, one cannot just pickup another one of the handsets to get on an existing call, or to use if the initial handset's batteries are about to die. Using a different handset on an existing call requires the additional handset to be conferenced into the call by putting the call on hold and calling the other handset.
Summary: 1. No shared phonebook. Four handsets, and you have to enter shared numbers individually into each handset. You may want this feature if different people are using each handset. An even better idea would be to have the choice of each entry being shared or not shared. 2. Have to delete or review each call received for each handset, otherwise the handset says missed call. 3. No option for announcement or outgoing message to be silent.
