Score 4.0/10
Good points:
It is reasonably priced, light and has a good range.
Bad points:
It has no remote facility for the ansaphone and no socket for a headset.
A friend who is slightly hard of hearing wonders if it is my set which makes me particularly hard to hear, suggesting the microphone is poor.

Emma, Business user

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Standard phone, does what it needs to. I haven't personally used it more than once so don't take my scores too seriously!
Bad points:
Speakerphone. I bought this phone specifically because I'd heard it had a really great one, and it is no better than any other. (Hence only using it once and giving it to someone else.)

William, Kent Retired

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Not too difficult to follow the manual so basic operation achieved in hours not days. Sound quality very good.
Bad points:
I think designers of complicated machinery should spend a bit more time in finding out how non-technical people manage to get the product:to work and modify instructions accordingly- especially for us old ones.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Light portable, clear sound good choice of rintones etc. Easy to set up and use.
Bad points:
Instruction Book supplied lacking some details about editing phone book entries like which key to press to add a 'space' espcially at the beginning of an entry. Also sending an entry to another handset fails to copy some formatting eg insertion of an intitail space (to bring the entry to the front of the directory) is not crreictly copied.
