Refreshingly easy to set up and use. Paper instructions provided on purchase, so did not have to log in to NASSA to get going. Clear and intuitive operating procedure and the sound quality is excellent. It probably does lots of functions that I will...

We have had cordless phones since they were first invented, replacing them every few years in the hope of getting improved versions. In order to have one phone in the house that would work during power cuts, occasions when phones are particularly...

Disappointed

  (Rating Hidden)

I bought the CS310A a month ago for £43.33 (incl delivery) from LiGo and am disappointed with the lack of value for money. The facility to remotely turn on the answer machine does not work and I am experiencing the worst battery life of any cordless...

Compared with something like an iPhone, this is frustrating and confusing. I would not buy this again.

Through a sock

  (Rating Hidden)

I've had the Gigaset 300A for three weeks now. I've made calls. People have called me. Everyone sounds like they're talking through a sock. Muffled and indistinct. Better clarity on my mobile. I'm quite disappointed and may have to get rid of it.

For a few pence more

The phone works fine. As reviewed. But the really really irritating thing about it is it comes with a disappointingly short power cord and phone line. So unless you have a powerpoint and a phone socket close by each other AND the place you want to keep...

Questionable durability

I purchased this quad set in December 2012. The handsets and answering machine worked perfectly - no complaints. Then, out of the blue, the speaker on the answering machine stopped working. all suggested re-sets proved useless. The answering machine...

Still getting to grips with all the menus/submenus. In contrast to above review, have yet to find the options intuitive. Quite a steep learning curve with much leafing backwards and forward through extensive instruction book seeking answers. Good...

Dear simon65Thanks for your comments. We test the range of each cordless phone by making a series of calls and measuring the call quality on different floors within our laboratory, through steel and brick walls. We determine the point at which we start...

Very poor sound quality

  (Rating Hidden)

Difficult to understand incoming calls because the sound quality is very poor. Callers sound muffled, as if they have "their head in a bucket". In spite of the good review I would not recommend this 'phone to anyone.
