Summary: This phone is a piece of garbage. The most important aspect of a phone is its clarity during conversations. This phone has loud persistent static even when near the base station that makes conversing on it irritating and unenjoyable. All the other features on this phone are moot considering the terrible static. I will be smashing the phone to pieces once I get my new Panasonic 6.0 DECT.
Summary: The system itself is fine, but the static on the line is crazy! I can use the phone in only one room of the house, which defeats the point of multiple handsets. Another big con: There is no speaker phone option. Every day the static and range worsens. There are better phones with the same (if not better) options- buy them!
Summary: The other reviewers are correct that the range is very poor with lots of static. Also, only one handset can be used at a time, which limits the usefulness of having multiple handsets. Calls can be transferred from one handset to another, but you cannot use more than one handset at any time to talk. This phone was cheap for a reason, and it does a disservice to the Uniden name.
Summary: It's a fancy-looking, weak phone. So was the one we returned last week (different make/model). Cordless phones are such a lose-lose situation: they either have terrible battery memory (despite mfr. claims that battery memory issues are a thing of the past) or they have no signal. What's good?
Summary: I bought this phone, actually DXA/5688-3 from Target for about $70. Tried it for a week and it's going right back. Reception was terrible. It would get fuzzy not even 25 feet away. I should have known better. My last phone, a Panasonic was great. Replaced the battery 3x over 5 years. Figured it was time for an upgrade. I am going to return this one and go with the KX-TG1033. I should have stuck with the Panasonic to begin with.
Summary: This is a excellent product. Good directions on how to hook up, program, and use. Big buttons, clear sound, and slick look. This was a gift for parents. They are not into electronics but had no problems hooking up and using.
Summary: I wish reviews had been posted here before I bought mine. They were on super-clearance mark-down at a brick and mortar store so I should have known better. The worst reception of any cordless phone I have owned over the last 20 years. They can't reach rooms about 30 feet away, ON THE SAME FLOOR, with only SHEETROCK WALLS and no appliances as interference. Unless you live in a studio (in which case why would you need 3 handsets) these won't work for you.
Summary: I bought this with misgivings because the last Uniden I bought has never worked (too much static to hear anyone!) but since the previous phone was a cheap model I hoped for better with this one. NOT! Even the base unit was filled with static even 20 feet from the base! When I returned it, the clerk mentioned that her last uniden did not work either--too much static and she could not even make calls with it, so she threw it away. Uniden used to be great, but not anymore.
