Low price phone but some quality problems
This phone is probably one of the cheapest phone handset available on the market. It has a speaker which works well, easy to read numbers, good display screen and ability to turn it off. However, I had problems with the mute button which stayed mute despite effort to cancel the mute. In the end, I just bought a new one as being the best option. I recommend this product for people who occasionally use their landline and for people who can use the speakerphone function when waiting in a queue.
Unusable and unreliable
I purchased this from Officeworks. A few weeks out of warranty the battery became faulty; as in the battery never stopped charging (the battery indicator never stopped blinking). Furthermore, adding to this annoyance, the ridiculous 'ECO mode' began turning on at random times during a normal call. This caused the call to become severely muffled, as the other person's voice volume dropped dramatically to a slight whisper (even with the handset's volume on maximum). I also found out that there is no way to turn off 'ECO mode'.
All in all, even though it was a cheap as chips handset ($10), the manufacturer should be putting a little more thought into the reliability of the product. Thus, even though I have bought this brand in the past and remember it was a reliable brand, I will not be returning after this experience. There is no use placing your brand on a product that has clearly not had much testing. More importantly, Uniden should learn that quality is far more important than quantity.
