Summary: The good and the bad 1. looks good 2. feels good 3. easy transfer and updates of address book from computer 4. loud ringtone 5. good speaker function 6. functions as a clock when on station but, and these are big buts: 1. when calling someone we regularly get no response or "wrong number" response when the number was correct (even with the automatic dial function). 2. Often we have to call someone three times until they can hear us.
Summary: I purchased 4 of these phones with a range extender about a year ago replacing a B&O system that had been worn out. The good news is that the handsets seem well made, have a substantial feel and have survived about 12 months of typical family use pretty much unscathed. Setting up the handsets was easy, the range extender not so. I followed the instructions and it just wouldn't work.
Summary: The Gigaset SL910A is a superb looking wander phone. I purchased it as we have lost the 1471 missed caller identification and I was told that as this phone had a caller recognition it would show me any missed calls, it doesn't. All caller recognition works on the 1471 scheme so if you can't get that then a caller recognition screen won't work anyway. As it is made of metal it is quite heavy compared to a mobile phone.
Summary: Worked absolutely fine for about 4 days then...dead...tried other phones in the socket, they worked fine, the unit wouldn't charge, I was left with a very gorgeous looking brick! Shame because in the short time it did work i was quite impressed.
Summary: Bought this to replace the BT cordless phone that had given up the ghost. Read some of the reviews and they seemed favourable to buying the product. Will say that it is a good quality and solidly constructed. However this phone has started to turn itself off when trying to make a call. I am unable to access the menu of the phone and it seems to have a mind of its own. I will be contacting Amazon shortly to see what can be done to rectify this problem.
Product ok on its own but NOT with others; Manufacturer help lousy

Summary: Needed to replace 3 phones. Researched and emailed Gigaset CS (Belgrade?) around a dozen times pre-purchase. Wanted to see and handle the phones but, although recommended retailer , JL canu2019t stock the huge number of variants from Gigaset. SL910 wasnu2019t available as a trio set so bought 1 of these and 2 S820.
Summary: I bought to replace my old Philips set. Good idea to have home phone with touch screen. But this screen is slow. Functions poor. Bluetooth and Internet are useless. You cannot transfer the whole address book . You have to do it one at a time. No where near any basic smartphone. Good features. - brighter time display especially at night. Good look and feel. I will not recommend this as a special homephone for lack of technical features. Sorry.
