Summary: Initially, I thought it was worthless, but when I realized they really meant hold the button for five seconds, it worked like a champ. I was probably shy by 1/2 second (how picky can you get?). Put it in the garage at about 80" high, at least 50 feet away, and through two exterior walls, and it works like I am sitting on top of the base unit. clear as a bell!
Pros: Inexpensive, Compact, Easy to use, Exceeded expectations, Convenient
Summary: Got the extender so the phone base we put in my husband's shop would work better. You would almost think the base is in the house, that's how clear it is. The shop is a good 275 feet away from our home. This saves the expense of putting in another line. LOVE IT!!!
Pros: Inexpensive, Easy to use, Exceeded expectations, Convenient
Summary: This little gadget works VERY well. Completely simple to set-up and register to my current Panasonic phone system. My base unit is on the first floor rear of a modest two-story townhouse. I placed the extender on the upper level in a front room. I now have solid coverage up to two houses away, front and back, with virtually no static. I'm very happy with this thing. I plugged it into a UPS Battery Back-Up unit that I have in my bedroom for a C-PAP machine.
Pros: Inexpensive, Compact, Easy to use, Durable, Exceeded expectations, Convenient
