Uniden 2.4GHz Cordless Phone (EXP4241)


ORDERING INFO

SUMMARY: Inexpensive phone. Generally works well, but occasionally gets short bursts of interferance.

I have multiple cordless phones spread throughout the house. I had a VTech cordless phone in my living room, unfortunatly the volume of the phone was very quiet. When I turned it up, it would get louder, but then I would have a background hiss. So I decided to replace it. The best phone in the house is an older Uniden, so I decided to get another Uniden phone.
Not wanting to spend alot of money if I didn’t need I started at the low end of the price scale. The Uniden EXP 4241 only cost $15 (actually $14.99). Always following the directions, I let it charge for 24 hours before using it. The sound quality is pretty good, way better than the VTech. We have been using the Uniden for a while now, and it works well most of the time, but occasionally we will get short bursts (lasting about one second) of noise coming through. They don’t happen very often. I am not sure what causes them, so they might something unique to our house or area. We have a lot of electronics, computers, electric heaters, etc, so it could any one of those things causing it. I have also noticed that there is a slight background noise when we are running the microwave oven as well, but I have heard this is common with the 2.4Ghz phones. Overall I think this is a good phone for the price. I have paid more for worse phones. The EXP 4241 is black, but there is also an Uniden EXP4240 which is the same phone except that it is white.
