Cheap junk

 

Two Lines

Cheap junk I think. It didn't last a year before the "Enter" Button stopped responding making it impossible to use the set up menus. It also seems to hang loose on the wall no matter what I've done to try and tighten it up and then when we try to dial,...

Excellent Phone

 

Needed a stand alone cordless phone for my business. Worked perfectly out of the box. Caller ID, speakerphone, and headset plug were the features I was looking for in a cordless.

awful phone

 

bad phone the worst phone I ever owned. the big buttons don't work, every time I dial, I get an error message. I dial with other phones and pick up this phone to be able to talk. It is brand new and a waste of my money.

Basic 2-line phone

 

I was not looking for a high-tech phone with tons of features when I purchased this phone. It is a basic 2-line speaker phone with the customary features (hold, mute, etc.). Works fine for what it is, an inexpensive, standard phone.

Partially Defective

 

Most likely, I'll keep this unit as all I need it to be is a basic phone. The poor connection for the LCD backlight makes me question how well this phone is made and how long it will last.

Phone works quite well, calls are clear, mic is sensitive. Looks decent for a plain business phone

The menu is not easy to navigate, lights are too bright an annoying, LCD backlight was broken on arrival. (Doesn't stay lit, just flashes randomly and intermittently when activated)
