Released August, 2007
The Pros:When it works the range is fairly good, works all over the house. Handsets are brightly backlit, work well in the dark.
The Cons:Noticeable lag/delay when dialing a number, buttons react slowly. Frequent clicking and buzzing comes through the handsets. Playback from answering machine is poor quality, hard to understand what people are saying.

As for cordless operation, the unit functions at 5.8GHz for enhanced range, greater sound quality, and vastly superior security. And its Caller ID holds 4t names/numbers, but does require a subscription. Additional features of the VTech CS5121 include numerous convenience functions (9-number speed dial, any answer key, last number redial), wall mountable, and a pager/handset-locator.
For a more affordable model, consider the CS5111. It maintains the same features, save for a digital answering machine.
