Cool blue display - cordless home phone

AdvantagesDesign, looks, feel, functions, display screen

DisadvantagesRingtones, No answerphone

"Well, I was looking at my poor old ( about 3 years ) BT cordless phones that I had at home, and to be honest they had seen better days. Before I had learnt to control my temper, the phones were usually bounced around several walls or doors in the house..... Yep I know..... thats naughty. My previous phones had served me well, and I had really abused them to be honest. I had a pair, one for the living room, and one in the bedroom. Both had been ..." Read review

iDECT X1 Twin Digital Cordless Phones

AdvantagesStylish. compact, easy to use and a great price

DisadvantagesButtons are small but are still easy to use

"This is light, easy to use and very stylish at a fantastic price. I paid only £54.00 for a twin set and looking around what I could buy for that and more I consider myself to have a bargain. I was orginally drawn to this for its style but is has so many more advantages. It is slim and not chunky like most other phones I looked at. The base they sit on is small, especially for the second handset so it hasn't taken up much room as I found with ..." Read review

I detect an IDECT X1

Advantagesunique design, cordless, sensitive buttons, LCD display, docking station, cheap

DisadvantagesNone at all

"...I decided to but the IDECT X1 cordless phone for £35 because it looks extremely cool and is packed with useful gadgets thats were bound to come in handy at some stage. The phone sits in a little port which naturally plugs into the main socket to receive a signal and I have found that call quality is fantastic when wandering around the flat a distances up to 50 metres from the port. The battery lasts for anything up to 10 hours when not stored in ..." Read review

Binatone Idect IDECT X1

AdvantagesSurvives being thrown at walls during arguments.

Disadvantages2/3 AAA batteries expensive, phones uncomfortable for long conversations.

"We have owned a pair of these for 2-years, and they do unfortunately have some bad points. On face value they look stylish, but you will come to find them uncomfortable during a long conversation. Their buttons are small and difficult to see. But the bit which has finally prompted us to replace them is that you can't buy replacement batteries. This phone uses 2/3 AAA batteries, which can be bought online, but for a premium price. There are a ..." Read review

Good value but uncomfortable

Advantagesprice, appearance

Disadvantagesbattery compartment, uncomfortable to hold

"Overall the phone is good value for money. But the phone can be a little uncomfortable to hold and use, also the battery compatment is a swine to open and close, as it has a spring and is curved so I had to use a knife, and ended up scuffing it, but once you have the batteries in you will not need to do it again. However overall the battery life is quite long and it is an attractive slimline phone which you will eventually get use to. Also it ..." Read review

Home phone iDect

AdvantagesCan make and receive calls on it

DisadvantagesVery cheap feeling, caller ID does not work and not many other features

"I bought this telephone because it claimed to have caller ID which my previous home telephone system did not. Please do not be fooled. It does NOT have caller ID. I have called my telephone provider to ensure that everything is in place correctly and that there is no reason that this should not be working and have been assured that it is. I have added contacts into the phone book in the hope that at least if people I know call then their names will ..." Read review

Good buy

AdvantagesGood clarity, sleek

Disadvantagesvery small keys

"We have owned Idect X1 phone for the past 6 months, We bought it as a twin pack from john lewis. Almost all my friends have mentioned the sleek, stylish look of the phone. It certainly has the 'WOW' factor to go with the stylish decor of the modern house. It has good clarity, did not have any problem with the signal. The handset is literally abused by our now 18 month old toddler and still not a single problem with the phone. It is quiet easy ..." Read review

Pack of three - happy

AdvantagesEase of use, functions

DisadvantagesNo old fashioned ring tone

"Bought a triple pack of these X1's and was pleasantly surprised with the quality and features. The sound quality is excellent, much better than analogue and my old dect phones. I set up one handset with time and ring tone etc. and then found that the other two had picked up the same settings though I'm not sure how this worked. There are 6 ringtones in all with 3 levels of volume. All of the ringtones seem to start low and build to a crescendo, ..." Read review
