Advantages: Built in answerphone and phone book.
Disadvantages: Battery life is decent but could be longer.
We have had this product for around a year now and it is proving to be reliable. This cordless phone set comes with two handsets and cradles, one of which has an inbuilt answerphone machine. The answerphone allows you to record a reasonably long outgoing message, and holds about ten minutes of incoming messages (not the best available but more than adequate for the average household). The handsets and cradles are very compact and stylish. The cords for the cradles to charge up the handsets are several metres long, which is useful if your electric sockets are in inconvenient places. Each handset has an inbuilt phone book (the two handsets synch whenever you add a new contact) which is simple to use and very convenient. Several ringtones are available, and you can even set each handset to have a different ringtone. Ringtones can be set at a wide range of volumes. When using the phone, the sound is clear, and the handset can be used with great reception anywhere in the house (unless you live in a mansion!). Other extra features include last number redial (up to ten numbers), a call log, a secrecy feature (so your call cannot be eavesdropped on from the other handset) and an alarm.
My only criticism of this product is that the battery life is not as long as claimed (10 hours talk time). I find it needs recharging after around 5 hours of talk time. Recharging is not an effort as the handsets are charged directly from the cradle, the only concern here is the electricity bill (not that it realistically makes much difference)!
You can pick up this product for under £50. This is more expensive than a basic phone, but if you would benefit from the added features, it's worth it.
Summary: Would recommend if you think the extra features would benefit.
