Summary: I bought the Uniden DXI 8560 and in 4 months the extra handset died. You can't buy the extra handset, you have to buy the SET again. The sound quality for the speaker phone sucks. It cuts in and out. They are just OK. You get what you pay for. I'g going to throw them away. Uniden should be ashamed.
Summary: These phone are great for my purpose. I would not like using this type of phone set as the only phones in the house. I use it for my VOIP where the base has to be connected to my PC. I only use it for long distance calling and this gives me one set on each floor. I have regular independent phones in use on my landline.
Summary: The worst thing about this product is the speakerphone - keeps cutting in and out. Horrible. There are virtually no features on the phone. When unused, the display is blank. No day or time on display. You can only store 10 numbers. You can't transfer numbers from one handset to the other. There is no voicemail button. There is no mute button. There is no room monitor. Should I go on? I just got it today and am making arrangements to return it already.
Summary: Unlike the previous person (who rated the phone a 1), I have had no problems at all with these. We replaced an older GE set that was horrible with these and wow what a difference. We have had these phones for just over 6 months, and I can say that I have experienced 0 (zero) dropped calls. The voice quality is also good, and I really like the backlit keypad. We live in a rancher with a basement so I have the main handset upstairs with the extra in the basement.
Summary: I chose these phones because of the good experience we've had with our Uniden PowerMax 5.8 GHz phones. I had no idea there could be such a difference in quality between products from the same company. The PowerMax phones are excellent products. In contrast, the DXI8560 is absolutely terrible. The sound quality was very poor. Calls sounded fuzzy on my end, and were both fuzzy and faint to the person on the other end of the conversation.
