I bought this phone to replace a Panasonic dect phone which I've had for a few years.
It was on special offer in Comet and I paid £39.99 instead of £80.00. A 50% saving and a reputable brand too.
I've never had any Philips products before and I was very impressed at how well it was packaged. Even the batteries (2 x AAA) for each handset were boxed.
The phone was so easy to set-up. Everything is menu driven. It took a while to programme all my telephone numbers in. Thankfully there is a facility to copy them onto an additional handset so I only had to type them in once.
Sound quality on the phone is excellent and I can't fault it.
The handset is a good size and weight and the buttons on the handset are of a good size especially for somebody like me who has chunky fingers. The handsets illuminate in orange when picked up off the base which can be easily seen in the dark.
On the minus side although it does have 10 polyphonic ringtones they are not all to my liking.
For the £39.99 I paid for this phone which is a twin handset unit it is a fantastic buy.
