      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Cheap phones to buy but if you live in a loud house or are hard of hearing this is not for you.

      I purchased this after my other one packed up, The phones look very nice on the side and not out of place at all like some phones do. It is very well made and quality of the product is the in the look and how sturdy it is yet missing in some what I would believe to be important parts of the phone . It has a nice amber display on the hanset screen which lights up well in the dark. The handsets them self's are light weight they weigh 90g, and the buttons are not to close together so if you are a bit clumsy like me it will be easier to ensure you wont catch you fingers on all the wrong buttons. There is the one main base which is a little bigger than the other two as it has the inter call button on the right side of the hand set. The hand set size is:- Depth- 28.25mm, Height -164.45mm and width- 46.15mm

      The things that let the phones down was the supplied phone line lead which was not for the UK phone socket, Luckily I did have a spare UK type phone lead and used this to plug into the phone socket,The user manual states though that you may have to purchase an adaptor to use for UK phone sockets, also I didn't realise that there was no hands free button when I purchased the phones.
      When using the phones you will need to ensure you are somewhere quite and with no or little background noise as it is hard to hear the person speaking even on the highest volume, the ringtone is not very loud either even on level 5.

      The instruction manual is a little complicating and it may just be me but it does not explain all that I believe you may need to know about the phone, I found that it missed out what some of the icons mean.
      The phone has a 50 name and number phonebook memory, so if you are like me and forget everyone's number the phone will work for you. There is 10 different ringtones so if you get board then you can change form the normal "ring ring" .There is up to 12 hours talk time and 180 hours standby battery life. Another nice point is the phone has up to 50 meters indoor range and 300 meter outdoor range, which mean that you can sit outside in the nice weather and have a chin wag and a glass or wine or a beer, and if you are going out of range there is a indicator that will tell you of.

      A nice little feature of the phone is that there is an alarm clock but is only good if you have a phone port near you bed. I think the last bad point is that I found was with 3 phones there is 6 lots of wires which my cat loves but I would like the pones to last a bit longer that half an hour so I had to group the wires together and tidy them up which is a bit annoying as looks messy, not to mention that I had to buy 3 adaptors so I could use the phones which does add extra costs on the phones.
