Range is horrid

 

Unless you're going to sit right next to the receiver - pass on this product.

The cons outweigh the pros. And, I can't think of any besides the nice styling of the phone. Too bad it doesn't work very well

The range is horrid. I can't get 20 feet away with 1 household wall in between without getting scratchy signal loss. Same thing at work. We bought 2 sets of them. Both are the same lousy signal

Worst Piece of Electronics I've ever Owned

 

You get what you pay for. I want to buy one of the Panasonic Gigarange sets with multiple handsets but they don't ever seem to be in stuck for now... advise you stay away from this unit.

Not Fancy but takes alot of abuse

Uniden DXAI5588-4 5.8 GHz Quad 1-Line Cordless Phone

 

When our old Panasonic cordless phone and answering machine was beginning to fail, basically, the dial pad was not working and buttons hard to punch, we were looking for a replacement. The replacement was on our Christmas list and the portable phone ...

Four phones and digital answering machine, life is good

Tinny tone and interference on occasion, what, what, what

Huh????

 

Just a quick review on this one. I am absolutely shocked at the reviews here! I guess I was lucky and got one of the "good" ones. I have had this phone since November 2004 and used it for both home, and a home-based business. I bought it because the ...
