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. As my phone jack is in an awkward location in the house this lets me place the handsets where I want without having to have a 'master' answerphone handset in a poor location. Easy to use, simple to set up.
Summary: The base unit is small, and can be hidden away. The handsets are comfortable, clear and well-featured. It is possible to share directories between the handsets, and it is also possible to set up the system so that all can participate in the same external call (like 'real' household phones: no need to go through a clumsy call transfer mechanism when a shout will do).
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: The slightly complicated manual has caused one or two false reviews from other reviewers, who have missed things. The handset backlight does have options for the backlight, enabling you to set it to switch itself off in the cradle and stay on as long as it is in your hand (or off). One reviewer suggested it could not be switched off and stayed on all night. This is just not true if it is set up right.
Summary: Robust. Useful features. Good reception range. Perfect for my small business. Came recommended by an expert in phones. clear and simple instructions that an old man like me can master. Best system I have had and I have had a few in my time.
Summary: We bought this phone to replace a similar product which had started to give trouble after many years use. We found it fairly easy to set up - we are both retired in our 60's though moderately used to working with technology. One advantage over the old product is that two or three people can listen in and talk at the same time, which is great when chatting to family members who live some distance away from us. The ring tones available are limited - but so what!
Summary: I have been struggling with this phone for several months and I now admit defeat! I am about to pack it up and put it in the cupboard and I hope to never have to use it again. Why? Here are some of the things that have been driving me mad: - the sound quality is dreadful - I bought this phone for my business but my clients are constantly telling me that they can't hear me clearly enough (so I have to dial back in to calls using another phone - a Panasonic!
Summary: After a lot of abuse, the time came to replace our BT Diverse 4010. this proved more difficult than expected as the Diverse was ahead of its time. Although didn't particularly want an answer machine went for this model for its robustness, as it accompanies us in the garden and garage/workshop.
