Summary: I've never had a better phone. It has all the features of cell phones and land lines. And only one phone jack is needed. Uniden TRU9360 5.8 GHz Expandable Cordless Phone System with Call Waiting/Caller ID
Summary: We've had our Uniden phones in operation for almost a month and are very happy with their performance. A neat feature is the alternative rings that can be used for different callers. Setup was easy and we have had no problems with the phones as of this writing. We also have an older model Uniden that we've had for about three years with no problems. I'd recommend this company's products unhesitatingly.
Summary: This phone does NOT have speed dial. You MUST scroll through its address book to select an entry. Who was the moron who made that design decision? It's like buying a modern car and finding out it doesn't come with anti-lock brakes or cruise control. (And, yes, I called the company just to make sure I hadn't missed speed dial in the manual.
Summary: great phones! I already had uniden phones but they were 2.4 and interferred with the signal for the laptop computers as well as static from the microwave. these are wonderful and we've had no more problems since we got them.
Summary: Overall, this is a fairly good phone system. It has many useful features and the sound quality is good. This system is listed as a top pick of Consumer Reports There are a few quirks which prevent 5 stars. (1) You cannot make calls (i.e. use speaker phone) while phone is on the base. I would rather not have to take the phone off the base to conduct a conference call. Many other systems allow you to use speaker without removing the handset from the base.
Summary: My last 3 or 4 handsets have been Uniden. This has been over the last 5 or 6 years, because they last a long time. My TRU8866 (correct #) is so good, I got new batteries. Ordered this unit for my buddies big house, with 5 extra handsets because it was the latest and greatest. Gotta get 5.8 these days cause that doesn't interfere with home networks. Good set - light, good reception, nice looking, built in speaker, small base unit. Highly recommended.
