Summary: When my 10 year old gigaset handset developed an intermittent fault with the headset speaker I went with Siemens again as the build quality and performance of the old handset was really good and I prefer having the central 'box' separate from the handsets.
Summary: hand sets, produce clear calls are easy to use + set up, they look ok too ,they are described as robust? which was my main consideration. I don't think they look particularly robust, but no damage in the two weeks I have had them, so hope they are .

Summary: There were many rave reviews of this phone and as I was looking for something that would survive child (and clumsy me) use I decided to order them. Delivery was a little slow however after setting them up I was left rather disappointed.
Summary: This is a great phone. I got it from Bargains Direct, and they were most helpful, not to mention very, very quick when I had a problem. The instructions are extremely detailed, so even a technophobe like me can set it up, as long as I'm prepared to follow the steps as laid out in the instructions...
