Jan'2006 - bought the Panasonic KX-TG5431 (5.8G Hz/FHSS) - seems great, good sound quality throughout the apartment. Cost $90 and included an answering machine, so I could give away my old one and free up some counter space. (Product Review)
Feb'2007 - Wired Mag reviews some 5.8G Hz phones. They demand multi-handset support (which might become necessary if I switch over to VoIP and dump my POTS service). They don't discuss DSS vs FHSS, etc. They like the ATAndT phone.

- C Net says the industry shifts almost exclusively to DECT 6.0 technology, we are only reviewing DECT 6.0 models. DECT 6.0 phones operate in the 1.9 G Hz range and are designed not to interfere with other electronics in your home, such as microwaves, Wi-Fi networks, and baby monitors.
