Advantages Ready to plug in, cheap
Disadvantages Reception can be poor away from base
The analogue Quartet 1500 has really been superceeded by newer, digital models. However, it is cheaper than it's younger brothers and represents good value for money.
The answer phone can be tricky to get the hang of initially ie setting up greeting messages, although with careful reference to instructions it is far from impossible. Once it is set up it is simple to playback and delete messages.
A disadvantage with the Trio package which presents itself several times is the lack of access to facilities from handsets 2 and 3- they cannot access answerphone and cannot be used as intercoms (although calls can be forwarded to and from them).
I live in a 3 storey house, with the base station on the ground floor. Reception is fine on the ground and 1st floor, but can be crackly on the 2nd floor, although not completly unworkable.
I'm not sure of the security implications, but sometimes I hear another conversation on the line- it's not readable, just loud enough to know it's there. Changing channels (a simple button push on the phone) rids this problem.
This phone has lasted a lot longer than its' predecessors, whose aerials were easily snapped off. This hasn't, and doesn't look likely to happen witht the Quartet. The battery life is excellent, as I often leave it off it's "holster" for a day or two at a time.
As long as you bear in mind that this isn't the newest, or best on the market, you won't be disappointed with the Quartet Trio.
