Sleek, svelte, sexy...and it works great!
 
Vtech's phones were always a bit clunky and inelegant, but this one's a sleek, svelte, sexy winner. It looks great in any contemporary interior.The handsets (I have five) feel like remote controls -- long and fairly thin -- but that doesn't affect how easy and pleasant they are to handle. The keys are more responsive than on Vtech's previous phones, and more thought went into the user interface and the electronic menus -- it's all pretty easy to figure out, and operating the phones b...

Could be much better, esp. for the price!
 
When I first got this phone, after much research, I have to say I really liked it. The range isn't nearly as good as an older 900 Mhz DSS phone I have (and I'm not sure why they did away with that technology as it works great and doesn't interfere with wireless networking). But as time goes on, there are little things about this phone that are really starting to bug me, like a pebble in my shoe, and I have to admit I'm having a bit of buyers remorse.First, when you clear the caller...

Took three times but I found a winner!
 
I'll jump right in and say what I didn't like about this phone. The handset speakerphone is extremely bad, constantly cutting in and out made the phone unusable in this mode. I called Vtech customer service and they told me to unplug the phone for a couple of minutes and then plug it back in and try it, but that didn't help either. Figuring I got a bad one I went back up to Office Depot to get another and guess what, this one did the exact same thing. Vtech has a problem with these phones.

Stylish, but with some flaws...
 
We purchased this phone primarily for its styling, but from the reviews it seemed like this phone did everything. From a styling perspective, it was everything we hoped for. It is very elegant in its simplicity. The base units all have metal feet (not just plastic). The handsets are very simple, yet look good in their base units and are well designed to stand upright on a flat surface.The base units have a lighted ring on them that shows the handsets are charging, and helps you t...

Excellent Cordless Phone
 
After researching cordless home phones for only a few days (compared to months researching an LCD TV) and despite some of the negative reviews of this phone I decided to purchase it anyway, figuring that if it wasn't up to spec i would return it.First off, this phone is replacing a Seimens which had caused interference problems with my wireless network in my home. That phone was a 2.4 GHz so my choices were narrowed to a 5.8GHZ phone only.This phone was without peer in t...

Nice phone system, but not perfect for my needs
 
I've been on a hunt for a 5.8GHz cordless phone with a color screen, downloadable ringtones, downloadable pictures for Caller ID (CID), and multi-handsets.In my quest I've tried Uniden, Panasonic, and now the VTech. The Uniden was the best in most cases; small, great screen (large digits that help this eye-sight-challenged guy to see the numbers and names), and the ability to "push" phonebook data from one phone to the others. Nice. However, the Uniden lacked some key things, name...

VTECH i5871
 
I've had this phone now for about three months and I have to say it's the best cordless phone I've ever had. The sound quality is very good for a speaker phone. I've asked the party on the other end before if they could tell that I was conversing with them on a speaker phone; while not as perfect as speaking directly into the phone it has never bothered the other party for me to continue the coversation while using the speakerphone.This phone has so many features and they are remar...

Love the Vtech i5871
 
My wife works from home, and consequently spends lots of time on the phone and the phone voice quality and ease of operation is very important to her. I bought this base and two extension handsets when they first became available to replace a mishmash of unmatched wired and wireless phones we had. I was worried that she wouldn't like it for whatever reason, but that turned out to be unfounded and she's now a complete convert. These aren't cheap, although prices have come down since I bought, but...

Excellent system...Must have....Good Visuals
 
I absolutely love this phone. Great reception, Great visuals. Easy to use. Simple design. This was important, as I hate clutter on phones. This has few buttons with great features. Two Cons: The minor con: Have to program each handset individually, but I don't really care ... I would still purchase this phone. The Major Con: It is not yet MAC compatible. Only Windows. I can get around that with my windows laptop for work, but hopefully Vtech will correct this oversight in...

Looks/sounds great, but not as easy as I expected
 
What everyone else has written about the style and sound are right. But I bought this (expensive) phone because I thought that when vTech WROTE ON THEIR WEBSITE "Share phonebook directories between handsets" they meant it. But they DON'T. Each one has to be plugged into the PC individually. Yuck. It would be SO much better to "push" the addresses from the base to the headsets. Also, their software (requiring a comma-delimited file that can't recognize Personal AND Business numbers, can't h...
