Advantages Smart and energy efficient too
Disadvantages Haven't found any yet
I decided it was time to replace my home phone and I wanted something that came complete with an answering machine, a second handset, had a reasonably good range and didn't cost too much. So with that in mind I went for a browse around my local Comet store fully expecting to come home with another Binatone. The trouble is that when you get to the store and look around there is a bewildering range of phones from different manufacturers which range in price from the modest to the vastly overpriced.I did look at the Binatones (I have had them before and liked them) but this time they had nothing which really took my eye and then I spotted a large display with the Siemens Gigaset AL285 on the 'end' of the product island. Now I know from having worked in retail that the 'ends' are used for the hot promotions and the Siemens was reduced from £69.99 to £39.99 which made it look attractive. It wasn't on the top shelf of the end, that was reserved for a more expensive phone they were keen to sell, but nevertheless I felt it warranted closer inspection.
I have no doubt that the keen reduction is due to the fact that there is a swisher, more featured phone available and they want to clear the stock but for the money it had lots of features that other manufacturers were charging more for. As I got to the checkout the customer before me said he had looked at it and thought it was a pretty good buy and he said it had good reviews - of course I couldn't resist asking why he was buying something different, his response was that he liked the colour of the one he was buying better!
