I had a Uniden for many years and liked it. My wife dropped it so many times that it was starting to have a lot of static on it when using it. So I purchased a new Uniden. We are still getting used to all of the features on it but both of us like it. One thing I have found is that the features on the handset and the base are not in the same position. When using the handset a feature is in one place and on the base it is in a different place. If I were designing the unit I would have put all features in the same place on both units. Other than that I think it is great. And no static.
