Advantages: Good call quality
Disadvantages: Naff ring tones
We upgraded to this three phone set from BT a few months ago after our old phone had an unfortunate meeting with a sink full of water and met a soggy end. The phones come with three seperate bases, two of the bases are merely recharging ports while the third one is the hub for the answerphone as well as charging the phone handset while it is connected to it.
What I like about these phones is the simplicity of design and also the fact that they are easy to use, sure they have a lot of features but the instruction manual was very clear and easy to read and a lot of the features are intuitive or automatic making the use of them easy enough.
Of course the call quality is very important and I have been impressed with the quality of the sound and also the rather good range that they have. No crackling or lost signal issues have arisen over the last couple of months of use. The technical spec says they have a 50m range indoors and 300m outside, I cannot say that I have tested either claim, all I do know is that they work just fine in my house.
The phones seem to be holding their charge really well, difficult to say how long they would last as having three phones they tend to be strewn around a bit however there were certainly no issues after a 90 minute chin wag the other day with a friend (thankfully on a free tariff deal so hubby will not go mad)
The answer machine can store 12 minutes worth of messages and the phone system has such things as caller id, a secrecy button, intercom and a key pad lock which will be useful for when little miss starts to get older. The phone can store up to 50 contact numbers which is not a lot but enough for those you call on a regular basis.
We paid £65 for the set which compared well with other triple phone packages however this was a sale price. So far I have not really found any major faults with this cheap phone set other than the ring tones are a bit naff. Certainly one to look out for if you are on a tight budget but want extra handsets.
