Summary: Sounds to me like a few of the people got a bad unit. Ours has been great - 2+ years and still strong, still like new. Never a problem, never an issue. Batteries lasted DAYS, reception was fine. Great for the price. If it doesn't have a feature you wanted, that's your research to blame, NOT the phone.
Summary: This model has VERY POOR sound quality -- no one can hear me unless I yell into the phone. Have no options to replace phone since its functions are not included on all models. Purchased this phone because it had a particular function that was important to me (called "announce only: where it gives callers a message/information but will not take a message, thus will not exhaust incoming message space while on long trips).
Summary: Owned this phone for little over a week when it stopped letting us dial out. Could hear a dial tone but the phone would say connecting, and then could not connect. Returned it and got a better phone, not worth the hassle even for the low price.
Summary: We bought this phone b/c a previous vtech phone served us well. This one, however is just missing too many key features that I took for granted. For instance, there is no speaker phone feature (was great for when I was put on hold) and the ringer volume control only works if you press it WHILE the phone is ringing, and then resets to "loud" for the next call - in my house the phone keeps waking up the baby and I can't set any handset or the base to silent mode.
Summary: Very short range making it useless for the purpose it is sold. Remote phones have a MAXIMUM range of less than 30 ft in the same room. Less than 20ft if a wall seperates them. LED displays have several dead pixels. You have to guess at what it is displaying.
Summary: Well, I think that this phone should be more functional. It can't intercomunicate between handsets, It can't answer two or the three hanset to the same time, and don't have speaker. Only the fisrt hanset can to pass the call to the others. In the other hand, the signal is excellente and have three handset suplys my requireds. Exists another product that have all i mentioned, but only have two handsets.
Summary: The item was not operational when it arrived. Rather than return it through Amazon, we called the Vtech company to ask for technical assistance. They were patronizing and not helpful, especially after it was identified that the equipment itself was faulty. We eventually got a replacement phone, but not without a lot of hassle and inconvenience. I will not deal with this company again.
Summary: I bought this product a year ago and just recently purchased one for my mother. I must say that the performance is unmatched. The range of the phone is excellent spaning over three houses in length. The digital screen is easy to read and clear. The operating instructions are very easy to use both on the headsets and on the main system. The answering machine is clear. I trust this system and would recommend it to anyone looking for a new good home phone system.
Summary: I own the product and tested and returned more than 6 other higher end phones. This by far has the best sound quality, you don't even know it is a cordless. All the digital phones are hollow sounding, as if you are in a tunnel, this is analog. The features are fair, but if sound quality is most important, especially as you get older, this phone is great.
Summary: Received one call, the message he left was NOT audible. When we called him back, he said our greeting message was terrible as well. Had the phone for one day which was one day too long. Looking to get a Panasonic KX. Great reviews on it. Blessings to all.
