Consumer review by: cb1993 (productreview.com.au)

Excellent

 

I love this phone, and how you can 'call' phone to phone if you wanted to speak to someone in the same house but couldn't be bothered calling out to them. I also love the button that then has an alarm-like thing that helps you to find wherever the...

I love the phone number storage system, so if for example you need to call someone, you can go into the recent calls bit, access their number, then call them. Very attractive.

The grey covering of the phone started to come off a while after I bought it, but that didn't pose a major problem to me.

Bad

 

My partner had a dual set of these phones when we met. WHile I liked the way they looked etc, the handset upstairs in the bedroom didn't seem to register when you pressed some of the buttons. We found this strange as that handset was hardly used. Also...

Silver Colour - different ring tones for different phone book memories

Buttons don't seem to work after a while.

Ive had this cordless phone for 2 and a half years and its still going strong and i have only replaced the batteries once. I love this phone. It has a number of great sounding ring tones you can select and also has a handset locator ring (which is very...

Great looking, feature packed, modern phone. Its multi-handset capable.

Works just as easily as any other cordless, has been long lasting and trouble free for me. A good cheap model cordless handset. Call come through strong, loud and clear and can walk all over my 40 sq home and fron/ back yards and still no loss in...

Great long lasting phone that has not had a fault for me in the years I have had one, uses 2 standard rechargable AAA batteries, looks futuristic and very modern, great color

Originally not a very well known brand, but other than that none found after 4 years of trouble free use.

Terrible

 

I had one of these for a while. It was pretty good at first, and I quite liked it. I didn't have any problems with the sound, but those damned buttons gave out fairly quickly. I'd be trying to dial a number and nearly breaking a finger making sure they...

It was cheap!!!

The buttons gave up the ghost VERY quickly.

OK

 

Too few numbers can be stored in the memory, but reasonable value for the money

Its light, looks good, reasonably easy to use, can be bought cheaply often with one or more extra handsets thrown in, extra handsets can be added to the system, can be wall or desk mounted, good range, microwave doesn't interfere with it as much as...

The LCD display does have tall characters but the lines are too thin and this makes the display difficult to read esp in bright light, not enough numbers can be stored in the memory (why bother putting the miserly 20 in two phone books?), the earpiece...

Bad

 

not as good as promised in advertising. not enough memory space and answering machine doesn't allow you to hear the message when it is being recorded - you only get to hear it afterwards

slim line and mine came with a free second handset

battery doesn't warn you that it is going flat, it will just cut you off. after a while it doesn't hold much charge and you must keep it on the charger when not in use. doesn't have much range

Terrible

 

I purchased 2 of these, 1 for me and 1 for my mum. Both gave us problems, and who needs that? Better off just buying something a bit more expensive that will do the job and last the distance

It looks great ie futuristic space age image Comes in great colours Is compact, can fit just about anywhere

The buttons are small and difficult to press The phone won't work properly after about 1 month! ie you can't hear the person you're calling very well and they can't hear you very well. If you ring Telstra or Optus, for a fee they will come out and...

OK

 

Works well. Clear transmit and recieve voice quality. The handset is a little small and light but seems robust enough. Screen could be a little easier to read (but that's probably my need of new glasses).

Light and easy to use. 20 memory locations but still not enough (my mobile has 500). 5 number redial is fairly handy. Hands-free feature is handy for conferencing. Completely secure phone conversations. Gives a different ring when a number stored in...

Can be mislaid easily. Thank goodness for the paging function. Seems to fill up with body fluid from the face and hands, making the buttons hard to operate after several weeks. Keeps ringing after the second phone is picked up.
