Phone also has a good long range from main base and no interference.Answering maschine also easy to use already pre recorded message.Top Nosh
Summary: Phones are ok, bit plasticky but lightweight and the menu system is easy to navigate and use. I've not got round to synching with outlook contacts due to the fact the connector is behind the battery cover. The main issue is the sound quality or more specific the lack of. Often callers sound muffled, tinny and hard to understand. Not a patch on my previous philips DECT phones that were over 10 years old.
Summary: Having used a low price BT cordless for years I was looking for an upgrade. I researched all models and arrived at the S795 twin, it had everything I required such as long battery life 45 minuits answer memory pleasing to the eye huge phone book memory the only question mark was the cost! but after using the Siemens for a number of weeks I am pleased I bought this twin unit as it is everything that I want from a cordless phone/ answerphone and easy to use.
Summary: I've had several sets of DECT phones over the years, and they've all suffered from poor sound quality. The Gigaset, however, is pretty good aurally, with a decent speakerphone (which is a first in my experience). Setup of the basic phones was straightforward, though the base phone had to go into the BT master socket as it didn't work on the secondary socket (probably a wiring issue rather than a phone fault).
Summary: I don't know how good all those peoples phones were in terms of sound quality before they bought this phone and gave it good sound quality ratings! I would say it was totally average sound quality and that includes the answer machine that sounds like something from the late seventies on cassette tape. As far as the caller ID functions are concerned, be aware that you must already have this function facilitated by your phone company.
Summary: I know it is a bit sad, but I get a warm glow of happiness every time I use these phones. They look good (OK not B&O good but then there is a significant price difference!) and most importantly they work brilliantly. The sound is very clear even at low volume settings, there is a good range of ring tones and best of all the settings are just so intuitive, it seems that everything I want to do I just go to straight away without needing to struggle with on screen menus or...
