I was going to write about this Uniden phone myself — we use it here at home — but Neal already did a great job of it on his own blog.
Here’s a link to an entry a few months ago about a great set of phones. They are perfect for families, especially if you have little ones. In my blog, I include a link to Amazon, but you can find the same product at places like Staples or Best Buy.
My (Asha’s) only problem with the room monitor function is that it rings twice when you activate it — not so good when it’s sitting next to the baby’s crib. We leave it just outside our daughter’s bedroom door, and it doesn’t bother her, but I could see it being an issue for lighter sleepers or reluctant nappers.
