I would buy this product again.

 

I purchased this due to my hearing loss and have found it to be helpful in terms of understanding the caller and not asking them to repeat. The handset is very user friendly and the caller ID display is helpful as well.

Great Phone for the hard of hearing

 

This phone is the only phone I could find where there was just ONE of them, and had a 2.5mm headset jack, AND could get the volume up loud enough so I could hear and my caller could hear.

Great phone but glitchy to set up

 

The manual describes an easy setup but my handset did not program correctly and I had to take it back to exchange for another phone. The second one programmed fine but the expansion handsets had to be programmed on the main base - the manual did not...

Only lasted 1.5 months!!

 

Very disappointed in this phone. It only lasted 1.5 months before it began having so much static we couldn't use it. The 14-day policy didn't cover it, so I had to end up going through the manufacturer and we all know what a hassle that is!

Good phone for hearing impaired.

 

Replaced a discontinued Staples phone that had died after several years use. Once I figured out how to use it, it works quite well. Salesperson at Staples store was also very helpful pre-purchase.

Issues with setup - otherwise great

 

Handset would not register with base on original phone. Uniden tech help was TERRIBLE but Staples was easy to work with; had to return it and order another phone; it worked fine but the expansion headset then wouldn't register; switched it to the other...

This is a great phone for someone older, they can hear very well and the phone is larger for older hands to hold.

Improved our lives

 

Our daughter and son-in- law gave this to us as a gift, but also to make their life easier when they visit. This is a superior phone to our previous set-up (Radio Shack), allowing conference calling and clear reception. As older folks, we particularly...
