Cordless Phone Review: GE 25841GE3 by jimmycanuck

Last month, I had a rather bad experience with the Motorola E52 multi-handset cordless. I’m quite pleased to say that the set I replaced it with, GE 25841GE3, is getting a much better reaction from me. Sure, it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of the E52 – no intercom function, no funky blue backlight, no snazzy ringtones – but it performs in the one area that the E52 didn’t – range and reception. Asides from the occasional electronic interference in what we affectionately call The Command Center (the farthest point in the house from the base, which also features a gaggle of wireless things – laptop, baby monitor, game controllers, etc..), this bad boy sounds as clear as an Eskimo’s ear.

Lacking all of the above mentioned features that the E52 has does come at a price, or should I say, a reduced price. Whereas the E52 has an MSRP of $119, these little fellers will only set you back $69. My only gripe isn’t with the product itself, but with the misinformation GE has put on it’s website. They claim this set has “Melody Ringtones.” To me, that suggests the fun and funky types of ringtones you’d hear on a cell phone. After all, that’s what the E52 had. But alas, it’s just a selection of three pretty standard rings, just like you grandma’s phone used to make.

All in all, this is a phone I could definitely recommend to anyone. A lot of sites will give you some sort of arbitrary numerical rating to it’s reviews, but I won’t waste your time with that mumbo jumbo. I’ll just tell you if it’s worth picking up for what they’re asking, and in this case, yes, the GE 25841GE3 is definitely worth the 69 bones they’re asking.
