4-0 out of 5 stars Good value
I just purchased this radio. It has an excellent reception comparable to portable radios that cost over [price], and the quality of sound is very good.

Pros:
- reception quality on both AM and FM bands;
- has a built-in power cord, may use batteries as well.
- attractive price for the quality you get.

Cons:
- a bit heavy, I assume primarily due to speakers (it has two, one of which is quite large) and built-in power adapter;
- cavity in the back to hide the thick power cord can barely accommodate the cord; I managed to back it back after several tries.
- vernier (non-digital) tuning and no ability to pre-program stations; at the same apparently due to excellent reception, dial range for stations is very large, so tuning to a station is not a problem at all.
- built-in power adapter makes a constant humming noise that at lower volume levels can be heard within 2-3 ft form the radio; I assume this is not a problem when using batteries.

5-0 out of 5 stars Astounding AM reception
If you love AM radio and are looking for a radio that has fantastic reception your choice comes down to two radios: the ccradio plus and the GE Superadio. These are the best radios on the market for fans of talk, sports, Art Bell, Phil Hendrie, etc. Which one should you buy? I have both (the GE for my office, ccradio for home) so here is my take on the two. Both have nearly equal AM reception. At night, you can easily pull in stations from hundreds of miles away (some say even over a thousand miles away but this depends on where you live). There the difference ends. The ccradio has a lot of features that I felt I wanted in a radio. It has a sleep timer, accurate digital tuning, automatic timer that turns your favorite show on at a predetermined time, scan buttons, lighted dial, power cord (not bulky adaptor), weather radio (with auto alert), memory buttons, tv audio of the network stations. The only flaw is that it has a grab indentation rather than a full handle. They are a family business and take GOOD care of their customers. The ccradio company LOVES radio and loves people who share their passion. Is it worth the [$$] for the extras? To me it is. The Ge Superadio has a rotary - and inaccurate - tuning dial. This will drive you crazy if you do a lot of channel switching. Some people tape graph paper to the radio and mark where they found the stations - it is that inaccurate. There is no timer, no alarm, no weather, no tv audio, no lit dial, etc. The sound is better on the GE Superadio, though. The GE SUperadio feels cheaply made and probably won't make it through many beach or camping excursions. The GE Superadio is enormously sized - it is the size of a small attache case or TV! If you only want to pull in one distant station and keep your dial set to that station, get the GE radio. That is all you need. It has great, almost legendary, reception without any bells or whistles. On the other hand, if you love radio, need the extras, change stations a lot, want something sturdily built that will last a lifetime, want to explore the large number of AM stations that are out there, go out and order the ccradio with slightly better reception (see their website to order). I am a radio person rather than a tv person. I have radio playing all day (as some people have tv going on all day). I sleep to radio (and need that sleep timer). I would rather listen to a talk show than watch a sit com. I would rather listen to Coast to coast, Phil Hendrie, and Rush than watch another rerun of Frasier or Friends. If you are like me, do yourself a favor and invest in the ccradio. You won't regret it. P.S., the FM reception will be better than you are used to, also.
Bottom line: The GE superadio is low cost with no extras and big and bulky. The CCradio plus is expensive, has every extra you could want (except a decent handle), more sensitive but does nto sound as good as the GE for music.

3-0 out of 5 stars Lop off two stars for build quality
The Superadio lives up to the reputation it has for AM sensitivity so I will not repeat it here. It is a joy to listen to.

However the radio case and knobs are made of the cheapest possible material. The entire set looks like it was made in a bargain-basement Chinese factory. Handle it roughly and I suspect it will fall apart.

I wish that the manufacturer would have a better cabinet and build quality. Would not mind paying more for better quality!

5-0 out of 5 stars simply the best
The superadio lll is simply the best AM tuner out there. I am 40 years old and I grew up listening to portable radios.this radio definately picks up the stations at night. Daytime is so-so as far as reception.I am hearing stations I never knew existed. It out performs my shortwave radio (radio shack DX 390). I definately recommend an analog tuner compared to a digital tuner. Digital tuners are very staticy/and lots of air noise. I cannot figure out how anyone makes money on this radio as you can find it for $39.99 on the internet.Its built firm and sturdy. the plastic housing is the hard plastic. I also like the seperate off/on button on top of the unit.radio is a bit heavy but no problem here- I like the sturdy feel.It does not have all the bells and whistles of the CC Crane plus radio. No back lighting which can be a drag at night. It is a true DX-ing radio as a true dxer can manually tune in the stations as compared to a digital tuner. As far as performance I rate it an 8/10...

2-0 out of 5 stars no better than my throwaways
after countless researching and reviews, I had to get it. I have a new AM station that's ~20 miles away broadcasting 10K day, 1K nights. My two current old and CHEAP radios picked it up but they would fade in and out. Well in a side by side comparision, all 3 are the same. I've not yet fooled with how many 500+ mile stations I can get but for pulling in a weak local station - it's a waste of money. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars It's great when they get it right!
I've been looking for a high-quality multi-line office phone for several months, and have had a few bad experiences. It seemed that I got what I paid for, which was low-price, low-quality, and I just couldn't find a good solution for less than several hundred (or thousand)dollars.

My criteria for selection (in no particular order) were: 1) 2 to 4 line support, 2) Speed dial buttons, 3) Caller ID/Call Waiting ID, 4) Headset support, 5) Adjustable volume for receiver (ability to make the caller sound louder), 6) Expandable (support for extensions that work together with each other), 7) Intercom between extensions, 8) Call Transfer, 9) Conference calling, 10) Speakerphone, 11) Line priority (which line is selected when you pick up to make a call).

The GE 29488GE2 Corded Phone not only includes all of these features, but even more than I could have expected. My biggest pet peeve about phones is when you can't hear your caller, and you have no way to adjust the volume. With the GE phone, you just touch the Volume Up button while you're on the call, and the volume is increased. This isn't a "fake" or "placebo" feature. The voice of the caller is actually amplified, and you can increase it to levels that border on uncomfortably loud.

The multi-line support (this one supports 4 lines), is integrated perfectly into the phone, and functions exactly as you might expect (definitely how I would expect). When the phone rings, you just pick up the handset, hit the Speaker button, or hit the Headset button (if you have a headset) to answer. You don't have to press the ringing line button first.

Likewise, to make a call, you just pick up the handset, and an open line is selected. The Line Priority feature lets you set which line is automatically selected when you take the phone off the hook to make a call. This is very helpful to me, because I have the phone programmed to select my second line, rather than using my first line for outgoing calls.

The phone has 16 speed dial/intercom buttons. Programming is a snap using the 4-line backlit LCD display. Each button can hold a dialed number and double as an intercom number. You can even program a button to use the numbers stored in other buttons to make calls. This is very handy when you have a calling card and need to dial several numbers before/after the actual number. You can program in your calling card and access numbers once into a button or two, and then reference those buttons in the dialing sequence you program into the remaining buttons. Even the length of pauses can be programmed.

The Caller ID display has a very interesting feature that lets you program the phone not to save any "Unknown" or "Blocked" caller information in the Caller ID history.

When you plug in a GE 29488GE2 phone, it immediately starts looking for other phones on your lines. Each phone can be identified by a programmable name and a station number, up to 16 phones.

Each of the 4 lines can be set with independent ringing options, such as volume, tone and whether or not Caller ID information will be displayed for that line.

You can also program the phone to automatically answer and go into Speakerphone mode when it is called via the intercom from another phone.

The phone is powered by an A/C adapter, but also has a battery compartment for 3 AA batteries for Caller ID backup.

It also has a data jack on the back that you can plug your fax or answering machine into, along with a switch that lets you select which of the 4 lines the device will access.

All-in-all, this phone has the most features and functionality for the price. Its functionality is very well integrated and it operates predictably. It is easy to program.

My only negative comments are: 1) It comes with two 2-line phone cords, but not any adapters to merge two separate lines into one cord. If you have two separate phone jacks on the wall, you'll need a 2-to-1 coupler for each set of 2 lines. 2) The instruction manual says you can only use one specific brand and model of headset, which you must order by phone from one vendor. This isn't terrible, though, because the headset is about $30 with shipping, but you should be prepared for this extra expense if you want a headset for the phone. 3) The manual gives great step-by-step programming and use instructions, but could spend a little more time explaining the features and what they may be used for.

I've tried numerous multi-line cordless phones, too, and none of them had the features, functionality or quality of this corded phone. At this price, I can afford to have several of them spread throughout my office, and I don't need to worry about fussing with a cordless and all of its related problems. This phone has some weight to it, too, so you feel like you're getting a quality product.

Bottom line is if you need or want a phone with these features, this is the phone for you.

2-0 out of 5 stars Almost a good telephone
Found all funtions of the phone to work ok. All volume levels were great and could be adjusted for headset, handset, and speaker. Design is great though display is a bit hard to see if phone is not propped up in the rear. The big disappointment is when putting a call on hold. My customer advised be that while on hold there is some type of ringing sound and the customer hears. This was a pain when I needed to put a 20 person conference call on hold. Everyone on the call heard the tones. My old IBM and my AT&T multiline phone don't have this problem.

Next disappointment was technical support. I contacted them regarding the tones being heard while on hold and was advised that all I could do was remove all power, phone lines and batteries for 10 minutes to try and get the phone to go back to factory defaults. I did this and the problem was still there. I asked to be sent to next level of support since the person I was talking to was just reading from teh manual and was told the she was it. Were it not for the 1 issue with a tone while on hold this would be a great phone. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars versatile phone!
Excellent versatility. I use this phone constantly - while I am working online, doing laundry or washing dishes. I just ordered another two.

3-0 out of 5 stars Decent, but lost features of the old model
I'll echo what most other people have already said. This is still a decent phone but it's far inferior to the old model. No mute, no second battery. If the old one used a jack instead of being fixed to the unit I'd still be using at least one since I ended up buying two!

3-0 out of 5 stars Nostalgic for the Older Model
I just ordered this unit, with which GE has replaced the older model. The older model (GE 2-9917) was clearly a "cult favorite" among many people, including me. (Obviously not a popular favorite -- considering how quickly it disappeared from the market.) The older unit was small, lightweight, and above all, had the best sound quality of any portable I've ever known. I gave several as gifts. I'll update this review when I've tried the new one for a while.

As noted by other reviewers here, the old ones eventually broke when the cord connecting the headset to the phone failed internally. (Didn't take much for this to happen.) Nothing to be done -- they were permanently attached.

Secondly, and undereported here, I think, the most significant design flaw was the clip -- a perfect example of industrial "overdesign" -- it hinged when it should have been fixed. No clothing ever designed worked with the hinged clip -- while a fixed clip would have clipped on just about anything. Users of the older model learned to either carry the phone around with them, or put in a pocket, which often resulted in pressing the buttons unintentionally. Sounds like the new one also has the hinged clip, but we'll see.

P.S. Do you think anyone at GE ever reads this stuff?

5-0 out of 5 stars I Love This Phone
I love this phone, a very good friend gave this to me as a Christmas present. I have a computer repair shop and having hands free while fixing computers is a MUST!. My life is saved with this phone. Not more neck cramps, no more dropping the receiver, no more putting down the receiver to look up information. It is comfortable to wear, very lightweight... I almost forget I'm wearing it. I walk around my shop and yards away with excellent reception. My friend is now buying one for himself. Thank you

2-0 out of 5 stars Noisy.
I also got this to replace the GE 2-9917A, whic I loved. I was happy to see that the headset was removable from the porable receiver, since I've had to replace the GE 2-9917A twice when the plastic head-holding bit broke. A bit disappointing that I can't find anyplace to replace the headset with the same model.

My biggest complaint is the amount of digital-sounding interference I get with this phone. Even when I'm 3-feet away from the base station, I get terrible buzzing, like a fax or modem signal. This started before I got a WiFi network at the office. This comes through at both ends (I get complaints from people I speak with) and happens about 80% of the time.

I also have a unit at home, where I wasn't having the problem until I had to replace the headset (with a much flimisier GE model that I found where I bouthg the phone) and now it buzzes like hell too.

I'm going to look for the older model to see if I can find it anywhere. I also think the lack of a second battery and spot to charge it is a silly omission. Overall the older model was a much better product. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars The Best Digital Answering Machine I Could Find
I literally got a headache shopping for a digital answering machine (. . .)I quickly found out that it is really hard to find a digital answering machine with more than 5 to 20 minutes total record time (this is for both stand alone machines and for ones that are phone combos). Another problem is a lot of machines only give callers less than a minute to leave a message. I also saw review after review of terrible sound quality for outgoing and incoming messages.

My husband cured my headache by finding this GE digital answering machine. I love that it has forty minutes of total record time, has a time/day stamp and remote access so I can check my messages when I'm away from home. I can also set this machine to give my callers from a minute to four minutes to leave a message. This machine is easy to use (I only needed to read the manual once). The sound quality for outgoing and incoming messages is really good. It is clear and understandable. I only detected very light background static that doesn't interfere with the messages. The machine's voice that gives instructions on use and time/day of messages is mechanical, but most of the time is easy to understand. This machine is loaded with features that work and are easy to use (I read reviews on other answering machines where the features did not work or were difficult to use).

Here are some tips of use. Make sure to use a 9-volt battery (not included) for backup during power outages. I saw another reviewer state that this doesn't work. I had no problems with it. All my settings and messages were kept when I unplugged the ac adapter from the wall outlet (I left it unplugged for 15 minutes). Whatever you do don't unplug the ac adapter from the answering machine base. If you do you will loose all your messages and most of your settings.

4-0 out of 5 stars 2 years and still going
I know several people have had reliability problems. We've had our GE for two years and it still works great. It didn't lose anything after a 24 hour power failure. (Don't forget to install the battery!) However, we did get caught once when we moved the answering machine in our new place and disconnected the AC cord from the base.

I love the many features. (See other reviews for details.) We use the GE as a traditional one mailbox answering machine, and we use the extra mailboxes to store messages out of the main inbox. 40 minutes of record time makes this easy. Switching between the primary and secondary outgoing greeting is as simple as pressing a single button. We've checked messages remotely with no problems.

I, too, wish the time/date stamp was at the start of the message. I also wish there was some way to rewind a playing message by only a few seconds instead of having to go all the way back to the beginning.

2-0 out of 5 stars Great features, reliability leaves a lot to be desired!
Not many of these separate answering machines around. After reading the various reviews, decided to purchase this machine. The features are great. It was easy to program, and loved the four separate mailboxes. Outgoing message (you can program two different ones) was clear when calling in, and incoming messages also quite easy to understand. Good volume control. Very easy to set up for use. One unusual feature is the line cord to the wall jack; it's fixed to the machine, and it's pretty short. Would prefer a removable cord. Anyway, seems great, huh? Well, after only a couple of weeks, it's broken! Calls come in, and machine picks up, but caller can't hear the outgoing message, nor can leave a message. Tried all the fixes in "troubleshooting," none worked; tried all new cords, everything we could think of. Look somewhere else - poor quality control/reliablity, and it doesn't even have any moving parts! Have an older GE with tape (switched for the extra mailboxes), about 7 years old, still works great! Progress??

1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible Sound !
The sounds quality on this answering machine is horrible. My wife yells at me at least once a week for picking an answering machine where she can't understand the messages. What good are all the fancy features in the world if you can't hear the darn message!

I've looked around and it looks like ALL the major digital answering machines have sound quality problems. I plan to keep looking but my just end up buying an old cassette tape answering machine - at least I can hear the message.

2-0 out of 5 stars Great features, but unreliable
In terms of features & price, this answering machine is one of the best deals you can get. With 4 separate mailboxes and 40 minutes of digital recording time, what's not to love, right? Well, after less than a year of use, the answering machine no longer answers incoming calls. After 4 rings, the outgoing message begins to play from the speaker, but the answering machine never picks up! It took my wife and I several days of not getting any messages to figure this out. Who knows how many important messages we missed because of this? Very infuriating.

We have since replaced the answering machine with a Sprint SP-812 that we picked up used from Craigslist.org for $10. The SP-812 only has 1 mailbox and 12 minutes of recording time, but at least it reliably answers the phone... and that's the most important feature of all. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Decent Phone
I recently bought this phone for a home office environment.I tend to agree with some of the other posters in that the phone could be better.The LCD display is hard to read, and the quality of the speaker phone and the handset audio could be much better as well.

Most of we consumers only think of AT&T, GE (now marketed with the RCA brand on some phones), Panasonic, as well as other typical consumer brands when it comes time to add a new phone. Obviously, it "is" easier to run down to Best Buy, Circuit City, Office Depot, Office Max, or Staples.But, do some searching online, and you will find that commercial-grade phones are available which are of much higher quality, and not too much more expensive.

For example, the ITT Cortelco Colleague-series phones are of exceptional quality, and they even have a line-powered model. No AC adapter or batteries are required - just like the old-fashioned Western Electric phones when "Ma Bell" was still around!Plus, they include every feature that all of the consumer-grade phones do - and, sometimes more.Another brand is Scitec, which supplies commercial phones to colleges and hotels.They, too, are available through online distributors.There are other commercial brands available as well; just do some searching and you will find better options at prices equal to or less than $100 for an excellent quality multi-line phone.

3-0 out of 5 stars Acceptable or Not?
I just received this phone to use in a small business office with two phone lines.My first impression was sleek, user friendly, well designed phone with a lot of nice features.The hook up was easy and the menu features pretty straight forward.The display is pleasingly larger than anticipated, which makes it easier to read and the information on the screen is very useful, especially the caller ID info including the phone line calling on.Ok, so why the average rating?Three reasons: 1. the speaker phone is terrible, reverb galoure, unreadible conversation and the speaker / microphone picks up all electic interference, ie. computers, flourescent lighting, etc., making it sounds like your talking next to a noisy washing machine and 2. the information screen is positioned at too flat of an angle, even with elevation stand, to read comfortably from my office chair and 3. the handset microphone is too sensitive, making your voice sound like your talking into the wind!To sum it up, it's nice looking, it's user friendly, the features are great, however the speakerphone and handset are inferior.What's important to you?

Perhaps some customers have had bad luck, but our phone works perfectly.The full-duplex speakerphone is clear and easy to hear.The headset works great, and doesn't conflict with the handset.It is easy to switch between handset, headset and speakerphone just by using the dedicated keypad buttons.The voicemail light shows when we have a message, and even blinks the corresponding line orange.Sounds good and looks good, too.It was hard to find a two-line phone with a headset jack and voicemail light, but this one has it all and works great.Definitely recommended.

4-0 out of 5 stars I'm ordering another phone
I do not understand the negative comments.I have tried several 2 line home phones and like this phone the best.

1-0 out of 5 stars Basically, it's a piece of junk.
My brand new phone wouldn't even allow me to set up basic features.I tried many times to change the dialing from pulse to tone, to no avail.It would say "ok" and then just automatically go back to pulse.The phone rang while I was sitting in front of it and then stopped ringing ... but I could hear it still ringing unanswered in another part of my house.I could not answer it because the call was no longer available on this phone ... it simply said "C4 Call Blocking".Tech support didn't have any suggestions other than unplugging it for ten minutes to allow the phone to reset.I decided to unplug it for life and try another brand. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice Product, But No Dual Alarm
I, too, ordered this clock radio phone (Model 26981GE3) expecting a dual alarm as previous reviews and the product manual (viewed from the Amazon link and the manufacturer's website) both indicated. However, because I liked the other features of this clock radio phone, I decided to keep it. The unit is easy to operate and understand, the phone reception is pretty good (a little occasional static but not bad), and the digital numbers are easy to read. I had recently purchased another brand model that had a 2.4 GHZ cordless phone and the reception was terrible so I returned it. The reception on this phone is much better than the other model I tried and I am happy with this one so far!

1-0 out of 5 stars No Dual Alarm
I have seen other reviews that the 26981GE3 has a dual alarm. GE's site is confusing as the top portion of the description states "Dual Alarm" but the specs does not. Another review in this site also states it has a dual alarm. But whem I received this from Amazon it had only One. The model was 26981GE3 but again only one alarm. I have contacted GE to find out but no response as of yet. I just returned to Amazon in hopes they might help. If I can get with Dual Alarm I think this would be a great product.

5-0 out of 5 stars The model for sale here is now new & improved - please read!
For those of you reading the two reviews above me, please take note that these reviews are actually for the model 26981GE2. The model for sale at Amazon.com is the new and improved model 26981GE3. (If you don't want to take my word for it check out the product specs & description on this site or go to GE's website to see all the features.)

With the newer GE3 model, the phone keypad is now lighted. And the single alarm has been changed to a dual alarm. What more could you want?

Personally, I can only wake up to music and not an annoying beeping sound of an alarm. So to eliminate clutter on my nightstand I have always had an all in one alarm clock/radio/ phone. My previous corded phone/radio/alarm clock had a manual radio turner. I got sick of waking up to the hissing of the radio not quite on the station. With the manual tuner and the bad reception in my house, every evening I had to adjust the radio to the channel to get it in clearly, but by morning the station had again faded to a hiss.

Most other alarm clock/radio/phones in the price range of this GE 26981GE3 have a manual radio tuner. Also some other models that sell for more than this model only have a manual radio tuner! With this new GE radio, the digital tuner locks the station and the FM antenna being in the power cord keeps the station clear. And with the radio preset, if my children change my radio station, I can just push a button to get it back.

As for the complaint of the large display being too bright, I prefer it. Without my glasses I am almost twice the limit of being legally blind. And it is a pain to try to find my glasses in the middle of the dark night to put them on just to see the time. Also my husband can look from across the king size bed and see the time without having to have his own clock on his nightstand. If the dimmest setting is too bright for you, take the suggestion of putting a smoky colored film over the display.

I have done a lot of research and the only other unit like this in this price range with the digital tuner and all the other features was the GE 26980GE1, but they stopped making it a year or two ago. (Just before I could buy it!) It was replaced with the 26981GE2 which is the radio reviewed in the first two reviews above me. But complaints about that model because it lacked some of the features the previous model had prompted GE to make this newer version.

Zenith makes one with a CD player included but the phone is not cordless. It does however have a triple alarm. But it sells for over $100.00! More that twice the price of this model! And when I listen to a CD, I want to listen to it on a big stereo (which I already have in my bedroom), so I choose not to have a CD player on my alarm clock.

This GE 26981GE3 is a great buy!!! But be ware, many online sites are selling the previous 26981GE2 for the same price as the improved 26981GE3! The unit looks almost identical so be sure to check the model number. Why pay the same for fewer features?

3-0 out of 5 stars Could be better
This clock radio has practically all the bells and whistles you can ask for. The only shortcomings that I found was that the telephone was the old fashion 900 MHG analog instead of the 2.4 digital GHZ. This can be a small minus as the phone has 40 different channels to tune to in case of interference. The other disadvantages is that the large clock numerals gives off so much light (even in low display mode) that you can use it for a night light. If you sleep with your head at the same height as the clock radio you will have the light in your eyes each time you turn in that direction. A solution for this problem would be putting a piece of dark colored cellophane over the lighted numbers. Also, the phone does not have a lighted keypad for night viewing and clock radio doesn't have the dual alarm feature.

4-0 out of 5 stars sleek, easy setup and great sound
It took me months to find a clock radio w/ a cordless phone that had most of the features I was looking for, and at a reasonable price. I bought 2 others that I returned. One thing to keep in mind is not all clock radios w/ phones had a lighted time on them. I returned one ( by southeastern bell) after I woke up in the middle of the night and looked at my clock for the time, and it was dark. What good is a clock radio in the bedroom if you can't see it with the lights out??. I also looked at a clock radio being sold at Frontgate. It had all the features I was looking for but they wanted $99.00 plus $15.00 for shipping. This GE model has all the same features except dual alarm and a night light ( how often would you turn on a night light on your clock for $60.00 more than what this one sells for. The phone works great, and even the radio has decent sound considering it isn't a stereo. Overall, this phone is a good buy at a good price. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice and simple
It's refreshing to know one can still purchase a simple and practical radio. Most radios I have seen in stores were very poor quality and were quite ugly. Also, most radios came with either a CD or cassette player which I don't need. This radio has decent reception and good sound quality. Great for the kitchen/bath or office use.

5-0 out of 5 stars Bang for a couple bucks
This little guy is perfect! I bought this radio so that I could listen to baseball games and talk radio on my headphones in my cubicle at work. I am thoroughly surprised at the quality of reception that you can get. I'm thinking about grabbing another one to keep around my house.

Here's the story - it's small, can run on 4AA's or off a plug, and it has a headphone jack. Are you sold yet? You should be. Darned inexpensive and useful. A purchase that you will not end up kicking yourself over. Oh, the only downside is the antenna - it's not adjustable. It just pulls straight up. With due fairness, however, it hasn't seemed to hurt the signal at all.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Solid Radio, For The Price.
I needed a serviceable little radio that would play my favorite FM and AM stations while I work the graveyard shift. While not traditionally a big fan of GE's products, the string of favorable customer reviews sold me on this unit. After two weeks, I can say I am not disappointed. For the price of a couple hamburgers, the radio manages to pull in the stations I like, at least until I get too close to all the old CRTs and their EM radiation, which is probably strong enough to render any reciever useless. At home, the story is different, will bell-clear reception on both bands and decent sound from the 3" speaker. Keep in mind that this thing is exceedingly simple, consisting of the power supply (AA batteries or built-in transformer--no bulky adaptor,) tuner, speaker, stereo headphone jack, and power/volume dial. That's it. And for a lot of people, that's good enough. Oh, and the case is nearly bulletproof.

After an additional month of operation at high volume, on the original batteries, this thing is still rocking. That's like almost 40 hours, by my estimate. This radio's the mack. Unless you get real lucky at a yard sale, this is the best $10-$15 radio out there.

4-0 out of 5 stars I'm not really a snob
This is a simple, no frills, no gimmicks radio. Believe it or not, it was hard to find a radio with those qualities. Modern radios are teeny-tiny, and have tons of "features". I needed this radio for someone who was visually impaired, had severe arthritis, and was well beyond the age of dealing with multi-functional gadgets. Fortunately (?) GE is still in the business of making things "the old fashioned way".

To me, the GE brand has always meant "cheaply made". To be fair, it once meant superior quality and cutting-edge innovation, but GE along with General Motors and a few other "Super Conglomerates", took a vacation from quality and innovation in the latter half of the last century. Now they're madly playing catch-up, and this little radio, even though it's a throwback, is the first sign I've seen that they're making progress.

It's a simple am/fm radio. It's a little too bulky, has very nice monoraural sound, and the knobs are a bit too small for arthritic fingers. Still, it's just what I needed, and it's the first GE product I've intentionally purchased in over thirty years. Either my standards are coming down, or they're actually improving their quality.

The price for this phone is just amazing. The sound and range are better than the Siemens we first bought and then brought back (that was a $120 phone). It is easy to dial, compact look but does not feel cheap. I am VERY happy with it and glad that I read the previous reviews.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great phone for the price
This is a great phone, Ive had mine for a while and it works great. The battery seems to last forever, I've only got it to begin to go dead 1 or 2 times, and that was only because I left it off the charger for a while. I also went on vacation for a week and I forgot to put it on the charger and it was still wasn't even near dead. You can also save 10 phone numbers on it. It has a long range too. It is also hearing aide compatible, has call waiting and many different channels in case the one you're on begins to break up. For the prize I highly recomend this phone.

4-0 out of 5 stars great phone
nice phone.
it does NOT have caller ID
It needs to be plugged in to ring. That's about the only negative point.
You can select which line is shared with a modem or fax (I don't use this as i have dsl, but it could be useful.)
Speakerphone works well.
Great value overall.

4-0 out of 5 stars A very solid desk phone
I needed a two-line desk phone for my home office, and this one is working out very nicely so far. Its sound quality surpasses many phones I've used in corporate settings, and its handset is a nice weight -- not cheap-feeling. It works well in speaker mode, and I'm also enjoying using it with a Plantronics headset I purchased. On top of all this, the phone looks good. If it displayed caller ID, I'd rate it a "5." But at this price, I'm still very happy with it!

1-0 out of 5 stars Never again
This phone was a waste of money. It's lack of radio frequency suppression means I hear the local spanish music station during all my calls. So does the person on the other end of the line. While this could be considered ambiance it is distracting when you are having a serious conversation. GE has offered to repair the phone, but in the mean time I need to buy another phone - it certainly won't be a GE model.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not the best
Having had good luck with GE phones in the past, I took a chance on this model when I needed a business phone. Unfortunately, my string of good fortune ran out.

The GE 29438GE2 is not a bad phone, but neither is it what I hoped. The positives are many:

1) Attractively designed and solid feeling.

2) Large buttons and keypad.

3) Sure feeling to the keys.

4) Good sound. Reproduces voices nicely both in the handset and the speakerphone.

5) LCD display is easy to read, with large numbers.

But there are a few damning negatives:

1) The battery seems to drain rapidly, even with the unit plugged in. A dead battery means you lose your presets if the main power goes out. Very annoying.

2) The flash is not lengthy enough and will not always get you back to a dial tone with a single push. (This is a problem with many phones, though.)

3) Bleed between lines. You can sometimes hear what is happening on the other line, as will the person calling. This is clearly inexcusable.

4) Volume control is spotty.

5) Cannot seem to adjust the sensitivity of the VOX. Likes to cut out if the background noise in the room rises even a little. (This seems to be an issue with all GE speakerphones.)

In summary, this is only a fair phone when compared with other models out there.

Skip.

1-0 out of 5 stars NOT RECOMMENDED
Two reasons not to purchasing this phone. 1) Because there's no Voice Mail light, & 2) the damn thing beeps every time you do something, and the person on the other end of a phone call hears it. It's embarrassing, unprofessional, and a very good reason to never touch this phone.

This GE product looks like it was built to keep costs down. It should stand for Generally Embarrassing. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars You Get What You Pay For
A bit disappointing -- the "Line 1" and "Line 2" switches feel flimsy and likely to break; you really have to click them in to get a dial tone rather than press softly. The speakerphone function works like a 2 way radio, i.e. you can't talk and listen at the same time. If you plan to use this phone as a business phone, forget it; it's a toy. The speakerphone is useful only for listening purposes, and switching between lines causes a quick burst of static, at least on my model. For the price I suppose it's OK, but if you need a work-horse phone with durability and a useful speakerphone, this isn't it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A very, very good buy
I tried five different corded telephones before I finally came across this GE 2 Line/Caller ID Phone. All the others had terrible audio feedback problems and I literally could not stand the sound when using them .

This particular model is very well made and has good audio and I have finally found an acceptable phone. (Beware, a lot of the other corded phones are marginal. Someone commented on another review that all the design effort is going to cordless phones and that therefore corded phones are little more than unwanted orphans. Some people cannot use cordless phones because they are electrically sensitive. Also, the microprocessors for some corded phones can sometime cause these same people problems. In that case they should NOT use touchtone phones where the keypad is in the handset proper. It is going to be an evil day for these people when they can no longer find an acceptable phone... It is difficult enough now to find a phone that they can tolerate. If you find a good one, you better stock up with a spare or two, just in case!) ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars not the best phone
This phone is very loud. The ringer is loud and the dialing is loud. There is no way to adjust the volume of the phone either. You can turn the ringer off, but aside from that you cannot make it less loud than it already is. Another problem I've noticed is that people have difficulty hearing me on the other end. I think this is due to the fact that this phone is completely straight, and therefore the mouthpiece of the phone is not near your mouth.

1-0 out of 5 stars I really recommend you don't buy this.
I just bought this phone yesterday from Future shop for $40.00. I let it charge for over 12 hours and there is still no dial tone no nothing. Take my advice and almost everyone elses. Don't buy it.

1-0 out of 5 stars GE 26938A Phone
In my opinion this is a very poor quality phone. I returned the first one I purchased because the speaker in the phone sounded cracked. The second one sounds the same way. It was cheap, though. I only paid $19.99 at Walmart.

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of money
We bought 2 of these when they were on sale 3 months ago. They do not hold a charge well, they have constant static problems, channel does not change as designed, etc. I'm very dissapointed. We have a Sony cordless that we've owned for 8 years- works flawlessly and never even had to get a replacement battery. I feel terrible that I wasted $40.00 on these "bargains".

3-0 out of 5 stars Not much but it's cheap!
The first one wouldn't start the initial battery charge. After a return to the store, the next one off the shelf was missing the power adapter. Finally, I got one that was alive and, so far, it is ok except that the display is not very bright and the numbers and symbols on the screen are too small. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars It was good for me
I have had this phone for about 3 years. It's been great. Considering that last year I threw it against my wall and smashed it into three pieces, when I put it back together it still worked fine. Now, it is starting to give me problems with the battery life, but if you'd been broken in three pieces, would you charge properly? I don't live in a high voltage area, so it picks up just fine. I can say this, it's definately not fragile!

2-0 out of 5 stars Good for shorter duration of time
As stated by <>,I faced the "same problem" just after the 1 year Warranty period expired :(
The phone has decent functionality and one would think that a GE product would be reliable, but we've been frustrated by the buttons on the handset, which quickly became unreliable. One has to mash on the "3" button repeatedly to get it to register, and the "redial" button is useless. This is not a matter of wear and tear because we hardly ever used the redial button.

1-0 out of 5 stars Nice looking phone - too bad it doesn't work!
Three months after we bought this phone we started having troubles.The phone would ring and we'd pick it up and hit the "talk" button.However, the phone would just beep - unable to locate the right the channel to begin the call.So we reread the manual and learned to hit the channel button after using the talk button, but to no avail.By the time we pressed the different buttons, the caller would be leaving a message and we couldn't even talk to them!Happens two out of every three incoming calls!We're looking for a new phone.

2-0 out of 5 stars Also had trouble with keypad
Sturdy, pleasant-looking phone that functioned well for more than a year -- however, now, the "Talk" button no longer works, and some of the number keys are also difficult, sometimes registering a number twice, or not at all. If they would have fixed this flaw - seems to be widespread after reading other reviews - it would be a fine phone. Good timing on GE's behalf - phone goes downhill just as the warranty expires.

1-0 out of 5 stars DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!
Yes, it may be cheap, but we have all heard the saying "You get what you pay for!"This phone worked well for a few months, but went downhill fast.Now, I never had an issue with clarity within the house, but once I steped outside it got fuzzy.(I cannot walk to my mailbox, which is not that far from my front door.)Anyway, the "3" button was the first to go.It got to the point that when you pressed the button it would not register at first, so you would press harder, which ultimately would make it register not only once, but three or four times!This became really frustrating, but I could deal with it until I found a better phone.Eventually though the "TALK" button started malfunctioning, which basically made my phone a giant paperweight.When you can't turn the phone on, it usually means you need to buy a new one!Anyway, I recently replaced the phone with a nice Panasonic 2.4 GHz/Fax combo, which works wonderfully.I also purchased a Uniden headset phone, which is also 2.4 GHz, and that was the best phone purchase of all and it was under $80. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Batteries, what batteries?
Only when you read the very small print on the box do you find any mention of "batteries not included" and the battery size (3 "AA" bateries). It wasn't until I got home and opened the box that I realized it didn't include the batteries. The LCD display is a little tough to read depending on the room lighting. Otherwise, it seems to be a nice unit.

4-0 out of 5 stars I like it, but one detail...
Very nice unit, the only thing that I don't like about it, is that it only takes batteries, you cannot plug it in. Best bet is to put rechargable batteries in it. One other thing that is not mentioned, unless I missed it, is that is has a timer on it, so you know exactly how long you were talking.

I picked my up at WalMart for nine dollars and ninty six cents, cheaper, plus saves you shipping costs.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works great ... when it works
I bought two of these units in March 2003. I needed "Call Waiting Caller ID" capability and bought these units after an awful experience with Radio Shack's comparable product. I was immediately impressed by how much better these units worked, and indeed they do everything well. They even have a call timer (which I wasn't aware of). The only bad news is that I've had one of them fail. A few weeks ago it started complaining of low batteries, even though I'd put batteries in both units at the same time. Removing the batteries then putting them back in solved the problem for a week or two, but then the problem came back. Finally, the problem came back for good ... even new batteries couldn't solve it. Then the display went nutso, it started displaying the call counter even though the unit wasn't hooked up. It did that even after having no batteries in it for several days (I thought that might reset it). So I've sent the unit back to the company for repair (Texas). We'll see. The other unit continues to work fine. I like this unit well enough that I'm even considering buying a third one for another room ... and keeping my fingers crossed. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Does not have the Range
I bought this phone and returned it within 14 days. The range of the handset is VERY limited. The handset started loosing its signal 20 feet from base! Made any type of mobility with the handset useless unless are in the same room as the base.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this phone
We bought two of these phones for our home office. They are terrible! When both phones are being used at the same time, they interfere with each other. There is very poor outgoing sound quality- our customers were constantly asking us to repeat ourselves. Also, the range on these phones is very poor. Whenever I would step outside of the room with the base, a clicking noise would start. This phone may be ok if you only need one (although it doesn't sound like it based on other reviews), but I would not get this phone if you need two.

5-0 out of 5 stars buying another
I've had great luck with this phone, good battery life and reception, small and light.

1-0 out of 5 stars How did this get past quality control?
We have this phone in our small business office, and it is without question the worst phone I have had the displeasure of using. I recognize that there are a number of sources of interference on the fifth floor of our office building, but the static is aweful. Even sitting less than two feet from the receiver there is static. Outgoing sound, as mentioned by other reviewers, is also poor. We are going to switch back to our (very) old phone because this unit is truly unbearable. It is mind-boggling that the folks at GE have actually put this device in the hands of real customers.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poorly designed/ and deceptive marketing
This is 2.4 GHZ ANALOG. It is NOT a DIGITAL! Digital is sharper and more secure than Analog. Years ago they started selling DIGITAL and I have no idea why so many are sneaking in poorer quality Analog phones without clearly stating so. Next time you go to best buy, etc take a look. If the phone does not say 900 mhz or 2.4 Ghz DIGITAL then it is analog. Retailer mix them all together and many associates don't even realize. I would recommend a 900 Mhz DIGITAL over 2.4 Ghz Analog. Another thing to notice is that many phone will say 2.4 Ghz with Digital Answering machine. This usually means that the answering machine is digital but the phone is not. It has to say 2.4 GHz digital phone. The companies are good at sneakingly getting us to buy cheap crap at inflated prices. This 2.4 Ghz analog phone should be less. They are hoping that consumers assume it is digital.

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad Phone
Reception is acceptable. Caller ID window is very small and the text font in it is incredibly small. After four months the speaker starting going in and out during every call. Sometimes the speaker would go out for a couple minutes at a time. Now I'm back buying another phone, not GE this time.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money!
We have had this crappy phone for one year. and its like we had it for 6 years. it won't dial the correct number, it makes loud funny noises, you have to press the key pad very hard to dial, and it doesn't last as long off charge like they say...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Purchase
I am very happy with my purchase. The best part about the phone is the headset. The quality of the headset is very good. I also like the message-waiting feature. The phone will blink when you have a new message on your voicemail. I would definitely recommend this phone to anyone.

2-0 out of 5 stars am radio comes in loud and clear
I have always had a GE phone and appreciated the quality and ease of use. This one has everything I wanted...digital answering machine, call waiting caller id, corded...and the am radio reception I didn't want. I can hear the local traffic and weather as well as the person on the other end. I exchanged it for the same brand thinking I had gotten a lemon...no luck. This one is exactly the same. So, it's back to searching for me. A few reviews mention the SW Bell, so I will try to locate one of those. Too bad GE lost a loyal customer:-(

2-0 out of 5 stars Lousy Speaker Phone but ok otherwise
I bought this phone because I wanted an inexpensive SpeakerPhone and guess what I got? A cheap unusable SpeakerPhone. The rest of the telephone seems to work ok, good contrast adjustment, Caller ID seems to work ok, voice clarity is ok. If you want a SpeakerPhone this one is not for you, if you want a decent corded Caller ID phone then it might work for you.

2-0 out of 5 stars Answerer quit working
We have had this item for less than a year. The answerer stopped working. Trouble shooting tips says, "Unplug power cord from the outlet and plug it back in". Simply, that doesn't correct the problem. Calling the 1-800 number does not give satisfactory information. It gives you a regular phone number to call for additonal help. That could be expensive. Over all, without usable trouble shooting advice, it's unsatisfactory.

1-0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing
I bought this phone about 4 months ago. It seems to have a mind of its own. It randomly does not record messages or caller ID. This happens at least once a day, but up to 3 times a day depending on call volume. It it weren't for my wall phone which also has caller ID, I would have no idea these people called.
I have sat next to the machine and listened to an incoming message and noted that the machine did not list it on the caller ID and did not have any history/recording of the call. It also randomly cuts people off about 30 seconds into their message. Other times it records a 2 minute message just fine. Very undependable. It also does not list incoming calls from the day in any kind of order. I will press the key to go through the calls from the day and get several calls dated from a day or two earlier mixed in with the current days calls.
Would not recommend purchasing this model.

4-0 out of 5 stars Happy Talker in San Diego
I have been more than satisfied with this GE phone. I purchased it nearly three years ago, and it has worked fine ever since. It is easy to use and program. Prior to finding this phone I purchased several others but returned them because of poor sound quality or other draw backs. I was in the process of ordering another phone like this one (as a gift) when I came upon several less favorable reviews. I was surprised since I have been so pleased with it. Maybe I've just been lucky. Or, perhaps, dissatisfied customers might be more motivated to write reviews than satisfied customers. (Note: I do not have caller ID and thus have not used those functions of this phone.) ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good Phone for the Money!
I recently bought the GE 900 MHz phone for like $15 bucks. I mean for a 15 dollar phone you really can't go wrong.. This phone has a 10 number storage feature and a on/off button on the phone for the ringer. Overall this phone is pretty nice but I think GE needs to do some adjusting with the sound. When you talk on this phone you can't hear what the people are saying hardly. But other than that the phone is awesome.

3-0 out of 5 stars Best you can get to save space - but lacking still...
The good: digital tuning, decent sound (not great, but good) for the size, doesn't take up a lot of space. The bad: listen to the other reviews about reception - I can't get an FM station on this device that I can with every other radio (including my car) I use in the house - and I am only about 10 miles from the transmitter. Most stations come in just fine, but if you are at all concerned about an iffy station, you will probably not get it on this device. Last complaint - no volume indicator and the machine resets volume to low level every time you turn it off, so you have to hold the button and wait to get the volume you like everytime you turn it on. The ugly: no one else is making a comparable product. If you want to save space in the kitchen, for now this is the way to go. Anyone reading these reviews who has some money to invest - go find someone to build a *quality* space saver CD player! GE, are you reading this? Can you *show* us the volume level and leave them in memory, and do something about the reception?

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible Radio
Wished I had read reviews 1st. Absolutlely terrible radio reception. I also get loud whooshing sound in background of fm stations, and can receive almost no am stations. Remote has never worked. Technical or customer assistance from GE is nonexistent. Only function that works is CD player.

4-0 out of 5 stars Enjoying my new Spacemaker...
We are out in the country and while, I cannot pick up all the radio stations, it's not necessarily because of the Spacemaker. I can't get some stations with my huge stereo system.

It was easy to install, and perfect for listening to music while you fix dinner. It's not going to be a BOOM BOX that will fill the whole house. Just enough for the kitchen. It looks nice too. All in all, a good buy and it was a wonderful mother's day gift.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works good for me!
I received mine as a gift, wasn't really in the market for one. I looked at the reviews listed and thought this might be a bummer, but I installed it anyway. I sure can't agree with the other reviewers, mine sounds great! (for what it is) I was rather shocked to be able to pick up just about any station I wanted, AM or FM. I'm pleased, nice little unit with a 40watt counter light. Couldn't ask for more.

2-0 out of 5 stars CD is Good, but noise maker occasionally picks up FM signals
My wife has been asking for a kitchen radio for the last month or two. So I searched through ... to see what was available. This one was, it seemed, the better of the bunch listed. Although all three listed had several unhappy reviews. So I thought I would look around some more before purchasing. By chance, I happened to see this model in my local Warehouse store. I stared at it and I thought 'I could just bring it back if the reception is really that bad'. ...

The reception:
I listened to the reception before installing it. It was really bad'It was really bad' did I mention it was really bad? To give you an idea, I live on Long Island NY, radio stations are everywhere, and close. I couldn't get reception of some of the most popular stations that broadcast to the entire island. Other channels came in better one stop away on the dial (i.e. 98.7 comes in pretty good at 98.5, but is just white noise at 98.7). Additionally, the unit picked up some channels from CT across the Long Island Sound, which is not unusual, I would just expect to get the station five miles away before the one 50 miles across the water. And no it is not hilly 'round here.
One caveat; The reception got a little better after install. This is due to the power cord acting as an antenna when it is bent at a 90-degree angle. I stress, a 'little bit' better.

The remote:
The remote works great from as much as a 20' away, and from the side of the unit too.

The overall sound:
The sound is good for a small package. You must keep in mind it is a 'little radio' not a boom box, it's sound is acceptable for a such a small enclosure.

The verdict: The jury is still out. I am now actively looking for a replacement. If I find one soon, I will return this in a heart beat. But, my wife intends to use the CD mostly and likes the idea of the additional night light. I'll give it a few days and see if she changes her mind' ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Faulty Design
This phone doesn't works properly, the audio level when speaking on the phone (i.e. the level that the caller hears) is much too low. I guess the amplifier design is faulty as you can hear the noise level increase at it vainly tires to compensate. I brought two models back to the shop for a refund. It is disapointing at it is the only phone I can find that has the all features I want.

2-0 out of 5 stars Inferior to our old speakerphone
We tried to replace our old speakerphone with a newer model. This one has a very soft speaker volume and makes loud noises if you get too close to the speaker. I like the old version better.

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible audio quality
I have purchased three of these phones now in an attempt to get one with acceptable handset audio quality. (I bought one in an attempt to upgrade my phone service; it was bad - terrible handset audio quality. I returned it to the store, replaced it and bought one extra thinking that the problem was solved. I have two phone lines, hence two phones. Also it is a 40 mile drive to the store!)

All three are essentially unusable. When you are speaking into the handset microphone, properly designed telephones provide some audio feedback to the handset speaker so you can hear yourself as you would when speaking normally in, say, a face to face conversation. The feedback on this telephone is terrible; it is highly distored and it overloads easily.

All in all, a 0 on a scale of 10 for human factors. For $... you expect some quality.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great corded phone!
I love this phone! I have found the sound to be quite clear (with volume settings), the set-up was simple with the enclosed instructions. Using it on the wall, the caller ID display is large and easy to read (has 5 different contrast settings). The speaker phone has clear sound and has volume settings; I like mine nice and loud. In fact, I can't find anything I DON'T like about this phone!

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent caller-id display if wall mounted
The caller-id text is large and very easy to read if this phone is wall-mounted. We replaced a wall-mounted Panasonic phone because we could not read the caller-id display, which had small text and was angled to favor a desk position. So far, the voice quality seems satisfactory. I like the fact that you can review the caller-id numbers while talking, which I could not do on the Panasonic phone. We have not used the speakerphone. ... Read more
