Perfect for home or business, two-line operation means you can conference in two outside lines to have a three-way conversation. Or place your current call on hold to make another call.
Now you can program each handset to ring or not at your discretion. For example, before you go to sleep, set the bedside handset to Silent Mode so that it wont ring for the duration of your slumber. In the meantime, the handset in another room is unaffected, and rings as usual.
Pros: Great phone, great sound quality, exactly what I was looking for. Lack of built-in answering machine is a plus; I have voicemail service on both my phone lines, having an answering machine is pointless. The fact that it takes off-the-shelf batteries is also a plus, my mom had a much older Panasonic cordless phone that she couldn't use anymore because the battery was shot, and a replacement didn't exist anymore. I'm pretty sure AAA batteries aren't going anywhere, and I keep them around for other uses, so it's a design element I really appreciate. And, with this frequency band, it doesn't interfere with anything else in the house.
Cons: As the other reviewer noted, the number keys are the only ones illuminated, which is a pain. The Talk/End keys have raised bumps, and the softkeys line up well with the screen, so it's not a dealbreaker with a little bit of practice. However, if you need to use Speakerphone, Pause/Redial, Flash, or Hold/Intercom in the dark, you're pretty much out of luck.
Other Thoughts: I have no idea what the other reviewer is referring to with regards to the wall brackets. I have both the base and the remote charger wall-mounted, and not only did that work well for both of them, it's a much better system than most phones, where wall-mounting seems like a tacked-on afterthought. The only thing I can think of is that they saw the product photo, where the belt clips are incorrectly labeled as wall brackets, and tried to use them for that purpose.

Pros: Good range and clear sound. Large phonebook (2 lists of 100 entries each) which can be shared. Multi-line sharing features allow each phone to control its ringing and line priorities. Additional remote units easy to add. Uses standard AAA rechargeable batteries.
Cons: Only number keys are illuminated. Line selection, answer and end buttons are hard to find in dark. Not particularly well designed, aesthetically or very solid feeling. Wall-mount brackets are useless.
Other Thoughts: There aren't many two-line wireless systems without answering capabilities, so this probably compares favorably with the competition. I purchased an additional remote unit with the base/remote combination.
