good product

zia, Amazon
11 May 2011
  • Summary: I received this product on time which was good from Amazon. Also very happy with the product so far as I am only using it for one month. Very stylish and easy to use phone. I think it is a first cordless phone I am happy with and hope it stays like this.

Not built to last

Claire, Essex, Amazon
23 April 2011
  • Summary: I bought the ID555 2 years ago and about a year in, the LCD display on one of the handsets packed up; the screen has been totally blank ever since. The handset still works to receive and place calls but without the screen, functionality is very limited.

Looks can be deceiving

Rob Cooper, Amazon
23 April 2011
  • Summary: We've had this phone for just about a year now and we are already looking for a replacement. Yes the phone does look great, not only the handset but the whole unit looks great in the hallway, but I'm afraid that is all it has going for it.

A joke

Mo "mo79uk", Amazon
19 April 2011
  • Summary: I saw this phone in the high street where it seemed to be marked down from £39.99 to half price. Normally that would ring loud bells (unlike this product), but I trusted the Philips brand and it looked like a nice handset. But after 24hrs it's been relegated as a backup phone. Why?

Disappointing

Peter O'Regan, Amazon
15 April 2011
  • Summary: I would only rate this phone as "OK" rather than good. The build quality is poor enough - light and flimsy plastic - and this is most obvious when you press the keys as you don't get a clear positive response from them.

Poor quality, high price

CED, Amazon
12 April 2011
  • Summary: I bought this phone for the message display on the base (to be able to see if there are messages from a distance) and because I wanted something different from the "pod-in-a-bucket" format.

Design flaw in this phone

Roger, Amazon
5 April 2011
  • Summary: Please don't waste your money on this phone. It might look fantastic but it is has a design flaw which means that after a few months or years (depending on how lucky you are) the ringer will stop working and default to Silent mode. At which point it can't be reversed.

Great phone

S. Jenkin "Pesky Pixie", Amazon
3 April 2011
  • Summary: Very easy to set up and simple to customise options. It looks great, the whole unit has a very sleek design - small and neat and the blue light of the answerphone looks cool. Very impressed with this phone and the answerphone, had it for a couple of months and no problems so far. Recommended!
