We needed an extra phone in our bonus room, and this model was compatible with our base (D1780). Upon arrival, the battery was already half charged. I simply placed the new phone in the cradle of the base unit and it was instantly registered with the base, even copying over our phone book. Although it's a refurb, it looks brand new!
I have had Uniden phones for years and compared to some other brands that I have used Uniden tops them all hands down. Uniden is easy to use, the instruction manuals are plainly written and easy to follow. I just purchased an additional handset and it was extremely easy to add to my existing system. This is the first time I used the order online system and it was so efficient I will only buy Uniden products online from this point on.
I purchased 4 refurbished handsets about a year ago. They arrived quickly, looked like new, installed without a problem, and still perform as good as new. This product is a super economical alternative to buying new, and meets or exceeds every advertised claim.
I was a long time user of an earlier version of this series, with which I was very pleased. This recent replacement set is not an improvement (required due to a lightning strike). Indeed, the new system has poorer sound quality and some features are more cumbersome to use. After trying other manufacturers, this is the still the best for me. I realize landline phones are becoming dinasours and technology improvements are apparently following.
