I would buy this product again.


I purchased this due to my hearing loss and have found it to be helpful in terms of understanding the caller and not asking them to repeat. The handset is very user friendly and the caller ID display is helpful as well.

Great Phone for the hard of hearing


This phone is the only phone I could find where there was just ONE of them, and had a 2.5mm headset jack, AND could get the volume up loud enough so I could hear and my caller could hear.

Easy to use with large number pad and clear connection. Much easier for older person to use than most new modern phones.

Only lasted 1.5 months!!


Very disappointed in this phone. It only lasted 1.5 months before it began having so much static we couldn't use it. The 14-day policy didn't cover it, so I had to end up going through the manufacturer and we all know what a hassle that is!

Good phone for hearing impaired.


Replaced a discontinued Staples phone that had died after several years use. Once I figured out how to use it, it works quite well. Salesperson at Staples store was also very helpful pre-purchase.

Issues with setup - otherwise great


Handset would not register with base on original phone. Uniden tech help was TERRIBLE but Staples was easy to work with; had to return it and order another phone; it worked fine but the expansion headset then wouldn't register; switched it to the other...

Improved our lives


Our daughter and son-in- law gave this to us as a gift, but also to make their life easier when they visit. This is a superior phone to our previous set-up (Radio Shack), allowing conference calling and clear reception. As older folks, we particularly...

I plan on buying another handset.


I bought this phone for my mother who is very hard of hearing. She can actually hear the caller and now can have a two way conversation.
