Wings Fall Off

 

The only Playmobil product I've ever seriously disliked. Normally their quality control is great but on this one the plastics of the wings and the joints don't match up well and the wings tend to fall off. The other dragon sets available right now are...

Nice phone, but "not all that" (several annoyances)

 

I bought this phone about a year ago, and this review is based on my using it for approx 1 year... The reason I picked it was that it was the latest-greatest speed transmission (5.8Ghz), and I really liked the look and feel. And also there was a nice ...

Ok look, feel, sound, and range. Good answering machine features.

No base-unit battery & clock gets reset, no central phonebook.

Best 5.8GHz expandable phone system by far

 

1) Co-existing with 802.11b (2.4GHz) wireless networks: I'm a techie, so this is my biggest concern. I was reluctant to get this phone system when I found out that it uses 5.8GHz to transmit from the base to the handset BUT uses 2.4GHz to transmit ...
