This system is great with only a few minor let downs. The range is superb it is still perfectly clear when I am in the back of our pasture which is about 350 feet away from the house plus we have metal siding and the base module is in the front room so that is threw 2 walls!! The intercom is a great function, we have been using it as a baby monitor while we wait for our new baby monitor to arrive. Just set the phones to intercom and pop one next to the baby and can hear the moment he starts to stir. Also great for being able to get a hold of my husband when he is outside so I don’t have to scream at the top of my lungs for him. The multiple redial function is really handy, the caller id having so many numbers is good (with a let down though, see below), and the directory is more then big enough for our needs. The phones are sleek and compact and I just love hands free/speaker phone after years without any. They do not seem to interfere with our wireless network at all. The let downs I found though were;
There is now belt clip for the hand sets and as of yet I cannot find a standard one to purchase or one specifically made for these hand sets which means you either have to carry it or have a packet big enough for it.
The intercom does tend to fade in and out when on speaker phone, I think it is almost like a walkie talkie that when it thinks there is noise coming one way it cuts out the other direction. Plus it varies on speaker phone as to what volume it will play, IE when using as a baby monitor suddenly the music from the crib would play loud all of a sudden then go back to quiet background noise, the baby crying would go loud then quiet. I do not think this is the speaker phone as on normal calls and speaker phone you do not get this.
The caller ID is great but it does log every time a person calls so if the same person calls 5 times then that is 5 of your caller IDs with all the different times they called. Now this could be nice but it means that the amount of different calls is limited, with our old phone we could sometimes go back weeks to find people that had called where as with this we could barely go back a week if we had missed calls.
The phones themselves I found to be a little quiet compared to our old hand set but I have got used to it now that it is still clear. hope this helps.
