Review: Uniden UIP1868P 5.8 GHz DSS Expandable Cordless Phone with Whole-House VoIP System and Corded Base
Posted in: VOIP Product Reviews
Easy set-up – Plug & Play!
The Uniden 1868P is really very easy to set up, and you can be making calls in next to no time. Simply plug the network cable from your DSL internet modem/router into the WAN port on the 1868P and attach your computer by plugging one end of the included cable into the LAN port on the phone and the other into your computer’s ethernet port. This system is designed to take full advantage of all the features of Packet8 internet phone service, supplying seamless integration with voicemail, call waiting, and other VoIP functions.
Value for money
In terms of what you get for your $75 outlay, this VoIP system is hard to beat. The unit has a substantial feel to it, with an overall impression of quality build. The aesthetics won’t be to everyone’s taste, but it’s otherwise difficult to find fault with the design. Included in the box is: Base unit with built-in router and Packet8-compatible system, corded handset, coiled handset cord, cordless handset, remote charger stand, battery pack, battery cover, two AC adapters, RJ45 network cord, instructions, Packet8 service activation information.
Great sound quality
When we used the Uniden 1868P, we experienced some great call quality, especially when compared to other Packet8 phones. In all instances, there was no echo and very minimal delay, even on “long-distance” calls. Providing you have a quality DSL provider, we’re confident that you’ll love everything about this VoIP phone package.
