Very happy with purchase

 

Decent sound, easy-to-use, small, Speakerphones/keypads/CallerID on handsets and base, intercom

No central directory, so time-consuming to enter numbers on base and handsets

2 years and only one problem

 

Good reception. Good value for all the functions you get.

Memorized phone number process is clumsy and list is different for each phone.

Okay phone, but a little poor on features

 

Seems to be reliable, clear sound, not much interference.

volume control could amplify more, quirky operation on some features.

I love this phone

 

The cordless phone comes with speaker for hands-free talking.

A bit more than what I'd usually pay for a phone.

Awesome Vtech I5881

 

Handset speakerphone has excellent sound. Phone has super clear reception. Very comfortable handset.

Contact lists have to be edited separately from base/handsets. Base speakerphone sounds thin/weak.
