Summary: I returned the phone. The clock on the phone doesn't work. It would go up to 2:59pm and then instead of going to 3:00pm, it would go to 2:00pm. Also taking incoming calls would sometimes make the clock just freeze for the duration of the call. Very strange! Also the display on the base unit was little difficult to read, even after adjusting the contrast, unless the room was very bright. You can not tilt the display as you can on some phones.
Pros: DECT 6.0 doesn't interfer with wireless internet
Summary: Bought this phone because our small office has 2 incoming lines and we wanted a "do not disturb" button, conferencing capability and an answering machine that would answer the other line when one was in use. This phone has all of those functions and more, however it WILL NOT KEEP TIME. I returned the first one to Best Buy (quick and easy return) and reordered a second one thinking that the first phone was defective and I couldn't possibly get a second defective phone.
Pros: Good features like do not disturb and conferencing, easy to set up
Bad battery life, bad connection to base, not recommended.

Summary: Purchased this unit to use in a 1500 sq ft office. Right off the bat, I had issues with the handsets not "sitting" on the base well so you think it's charging and the next morning you look at it and the battery is empty. Sometimes the handset sits there with a completely blank screen, and you have to try a few times to "re-sit" the handset in the base and pick it up again for it to pick up the main phone base. Also, the battery life in general is painfully low.

Summary: I bought this phone to replace an old Panasonic. I also have Uniden and AT&T phones with corded bases and cordless handsets. Previously I had a Vtech system. This is by far the best phone system I have ever used. The detailed planning that went into this phone is amazing. I have been using it for about two weeks and haven't found anything to complain about. It has wonderful range and battery life and I love the alarms you can set on the cordless handset.
