Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Good sound quality, head set jack, bluetooth option but makes battery life even worse if you leave it on.
Bad points:
Have two of these hand sets for about 18 mounts now!
*Battery life is really bad even without the extra features enabled! Uses 2xAAA batteries. Even wasted money on new ones to try. Would have been more sensible to use AA's.
*Clumsy access to received call list
*Have problem with using things like caller divert, seems prefix's like the "#" key are an issue with it.
*Bad customer support here in the UK they didn't seem to care...

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
The inability to set a different ringtone for each IP/fixed connection is a real shame - what use having 6/7 incoming phone "lines" (virtual or otherwise) if you have to look at the display to determine which one is ringing? In this respect, the S78H/S79H handsets from the same manufacturer are streaks ahead (but way more expensive). All in all, for a cheap home/soho VOIP DECT system - not bad at all!

Nic, London Business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great DECT phone and the VoIP functionality is a real money saver. Have multiple VoIP and one POTS line. Supports multiple VoIP providers seamlessly (BT make it almost impossible to use their service with any VoIP phone, this one is no exception, but there are good alternatives such as Sipgate which work really well with this phone)

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Great feature set. Good speech quality and range. VOIP plus Bluetooth plus answerphone, so in theory it's all you need.
Bad points:
Repeated hardware failures, First-line manfacturer support unspeakably bad, like something from 1950's Soviet Union without the product knowledge. Eventually the faulty item(s) get replaced, but the faults persist. Some good people higher up the tree, but even they can't solve the basic issues like range extenders losing connectivity and base stations needing regular reboots.
