Excerpt: Telecommunication manufacturers have invested millions into their sector advancing the technology of cordless phones and when I purchased the iDect C51, manufactured by Binatone, I assumed a small portion of that investment would have been spent on this handset but my purchase was proof enough that...
Pros: Smart design, user friendly, quick set up
Cons: Terrible audio quality, volume too low, over priced
Summary: The twin phone pack I purchased looks the biz - piano black with a blue backlight. The unit functions ok. There is no missed call light, only the answer-phone illumination if you have a new message, no audible indicator telling you of a new message.
Summary: I have given this phone one star, because you can make and receive calls... buts that about it!!! The phone in in no way intuitive. The answer machine is a waste of time as you can't hear it due to distortion and the phone doesn't record the time of call.
Summary: This phone worked brilliantly, for a while. Then it went damm near silent. I replaced the connecting lead to the phone socket, tried some cheap box wired phone in the main socket and the one on the extension lead, they all worked fine. This box however, was damm near silent.
Summary: Nice looking phone but the quality is not good, not very good sound, not many ringtones, and you have to enter your address book on both phones, not able to copy over to the other handset. Sorry but sent mine back and got refund!
Summary: I bought it from Commet store on offer price, I expected qaulity as original price was £65. Sound quality is very bad. By the end of call, my ear aches. Answer machine sound not clear at all. I use speaker function a lot and it breaks my voice and caller voice too.
Summary: Great little handsets, sleek base units - looks good. Super clear sound, and quite a few ring tones to choose from too. Easy to programme and set up, no problems at all. Great value, would definitely recommend !
Pointless as i can't even answer the phone when it rings

Summary: Couldn't give less than 1 star. It deserves a half a star for design. The battery runs out when you pick it up off the base even when it's been say charging all night. If i press play (awkward to even do that ) it switches itself off. Pointless pointless pointless!

Summary: I bought this product because it looked good, but you would need good eyesight to see the buttons.I wish now that I had paid a bit extra and purchased a better phone. (although I still think it looks good)
