Poor outdoor range.

 

I've been using the Uniden TRU8888 for about six months now and though it was pricey and works fine as long as I'm inside my house, I'm ready to try something else. I literally cannot step one foot outside any of my doors without affecting the quality ...

Home office phone, best I have seen out there for what it is

 

Clarity, bells and whistles, expandability, look and size.

Surprisingly good. Solved all of my problems...almost.

 

I was having issues with my Panasonic 2.4 GHz interfering with my wireless network (not uncommon), so I decided it was time to upgrade. I needed a 5.8 GHz phone with a corded base (one reason is for a Plantronics headset), answering system, and...

Great: design, looks, display, functions, answering system, sound, speaker and handset

Appears to be incompatible with Plantronics amplified headset (M12). And is $170 expensive
