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.

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.
