Advantages: Good value, smart and reliable
Disadvantages: limited options, would be better if wireless
I have had this phone now for a couple of months, it is used in a busy environment receiving around 40-50 calls a day.
The shape of the phone is quite stylish and very pleasent and professional to look at, the receiver feels rather on the large side but very durable.
when in a call the quality is very good, both parties are able to clearly hear each other, however when on the speaker phone it doesnt seem to be loud enough even on the highest sound setting, also it feels like you have to be quite close to the phone in order for the other person to be able to hear you aswell.
The menus within the phone are very clear but are also very limited, you get only the basics, answer machine, settings, call lists, appointments and alarm.
The screen display is rather large and shows the date and time clearly, the caller display works however it sometimes takes a couple of rings before it actually shows the number.
The answer phone on this is by far the easiest I have seen, literally just press "play" and you away, then pressing either skip stop or delete to do the actions, couldn't be any more simple if you tried, and to turn the answer phone on its just a simple button.
The phone is a hard-wired phone which doesnt cause any issues if you dont mind standing with the phone when you wish to make any calls! however if like me you sit and dont go anywhere you can plug in a headset to this phone aswell as the receiver!
The keypad on this is of ample size and clarity, slightly curved it feels quite soft as you press the buttons, they dont seem to wear at all either like some other phones I have had in the past.
All in all, if you are after a basic home phone with a answer phone then this is a good value option.
Summary: If you want a good value answer phone with not a lot to set up then look no further.
