I've got one. Works great! Even bought mine refurbished.

We have had this exact set for about 3 or 4 years now. Works great...has several handy features (e.g., listening to answering machine messages from any of the handsets...not just the base), terrific range, and excellent call quality. Totally recommended. Oh, and they're tough...our kids have dropped one handset down two flights of stairs and there wasn't a scratch on it.

I've had two Uniden DECT headset bundles. They both share the same problems: the keypads wear out quickly. (After a year or so of service.) I often use the Caller-ID view to scroll through the list of calls that came in (every day or two). After a couple of years, the button to bring up the CID list stops working. I just move the headsets around until they're all failed.
I've taken them apart, cleaned the connectors with isopropyl alcohol, etc. and it's just a fail.

I love the DECT sound quality and range, and I'm looking for a replacement set yet again. It'll probably be DECT, but it won't be a Uniden.

@rhmurphy: The last two Unidens I had, about 3-4 years, and 5-6 back now, had the same problem: after a while the keys began to get harder and harder to actuate, and eventually failed. It wasn't this model granted, but it left a bad taste in my mouth about future purchases of Uniden phones.

@craig616: Yes, actually, people do. I have a landline phone because my mobile phone costs a fortune for international calls. Using Vonage for our home phone saves us a mint every year.

And, of course, there's lots of folks with no mobile phone coverage at their houses. So, yes, people still use these.

And yes, it works with a Mac. :)
