A really solid cordless phone. After experiencing numerous problems with my last cordless phone, I swapped it for this one kind of on a whim with little research. 6 months and a few drops down the line and the gamble has paid off.
The quality of the cordless function is very high, with no noticible "fuzz" on the line. The speakerphone option is also very good, providing loud and clear output of the person on the other end and seemingly an equally good microphone (seeing as I have yet to receive even one of the usual complaints about quietness that I usually get with speakerphones).
The answer machine is operable through the base station itself rather than through the handset, which I personally greatly prefer as it allows for a simple one button on/off operation (rather than picking up the handset and navigating to a menu), and the handset will tell you how many messages you have, rather than simply informing you that you have anywhere between 1 and a 1000 messages through a flashing icon.
The base station also provides a choice of two docking positions, depending on which angle you want the handset to be at, useful for being able to see the display properly and screen calls without picking up the handset.
It's a lovely slim and chic handset which outperforms in the style department many in the same price bracket.
