Summary: Over the past 2.5 years, I have purchased six of these for my home. They are all working perfectly and I am constantly amazed how advanced they are. The only problems I have encountered has to do with the battery, but I believe battery problems are common for all phones. My former top-of-the-line $300 Panasonic phone system had battery problems too.
Summary: I threw my Panasonic system in the trash when after 4 years I tried to replace a handset only to find out it was no longer available. The Uniden systems have handsets that will work with current and older Uniden systems, so if I need a replacement handset 4 years from now they will have a handset that will work with my system. That is good customer service.
Summary: Bought two of these to go with the CLX 485 in our house. Works great as a total system. The middle-aged adults in our house love the simple and large buttons, as well as the color display (easier to see). Great to be able to both get alerted to messages on the answering machine (alert light) and to check the messages from this unit without having to walk to the base station where the message machine is...
Summary: I previously had a pair of 900 MHz phones but wanted a multihandset system using one base/phone jack when we bought our new house. I bought the Uniden mostly because I could get 3 handsets and a base for $130 after all the rebates. Next closest with a decent feature set would have been $200+. The range of this 5.8 GHz system can't compare to the 900 MHz setup I had, plus it's a little pickier about base station placement.
Simply the Best Residential Phone System I've Used

Summary: I gave a detailed review of the base system, but the handset merits comments separately. I have purchased handsets for every room in the house, and because I don't like using the clip to carry it with me everywhere, I use them. They're easily customizable through the PC interface, although they can be customized without it as well. Each handset gets its out name, so transferring calls or paging a handset is simple.
