I bought these because there were three phones, and most importantly for the call announce feature. I am very happy with these phones. At first I was getting a bit of static in one of the phones, but it seems to have resolved itself. The call announce is good, if you input Mom and have a friend named Bob, it might sound the same when the phone announces them, but that is an easy fix, so I would say that I am VERY pleased with these phones and have already recommended them to my Mom. You really can't beat the price either. Thanks Overstock!
We've now had this product for about a month now and are quite pleased with it. It's meeting our needs very well. Pros: Easy to set up. Stores names and numbers easily. Not affected by any electrical interference (e.g., microwave). Buttons are big and easy to press. Caller ID features both a display and audio announcement (pretty good for being phonetic, although some pronunciations can be rather funny). All phones/bases can sit on a table/nightstand -- no need to mount on a wall. When a message is left on the answering machine, there is no constant "beep" to let us know a message has been left (it merely flashes). Cons: When calling home (e.g., the office), there's sometimes an echo-like effect where I can hear myself in the background while I'm talking. There is no headphone jack, so it's uncomfortable trying to talk on the phone and, say, using the computer at the same time (although there is a speakerphone feature). Overall: A good product for the price. It has adequately replaced our previous cordless phone which would only last a couple of hours of continuous use before dying out and needing to be recharged. We haven't yet tested all of its features, but it has been solid so far for practical, everyday use.
As stated above. Much nicer than I expected. Very well, I expected the main base of the phone to be bigger by the image but was pleasantly surprised at the size.

Great quality phones. They're sleek, good looking and all up to date features work well. I especially like the clear forthright instruction pamphlet.
