    I've had about 5 DECT sets since the very old Rabbit cordless many years back. All have had some deficiency or are finnicky, poor battery life etc but these Siemens sets are pretty much perfect and correct all the problems the others had.

    The handsets feel nice and the buttons are positive with a quick response. The switchable keyclick the first I'd be happy to leave on. I never use poly ringtones on a cell but I would use some of the 18 on this (there are also 3 non poly rings).

    Colour display is pleasant and not over utilised, animated or garish. Phonebook/caller ID can show 13 dialled digits on screen without wrapping to the next line with a max number length of 32 characters. The name uses proportional font, maximum 16 characters. Phonebook has 250 entries and part or all can be pushed to other handsets. There are 9 press-and-hold one-touch memories which point to phonebook entries.

    CallerID list can be set to record all incoming calls or only those missed. Dedicated button to access the missed call list, which flashes if a missed call has arrived while you've been out. Can also set to utilise CallerID to not ring for withheld numbers, and during certain hours not ring unless one of your VIP entries calls.

    Battery life on supplied AAA 800mAh cells is impressive, they suggest you charge 8.5hrs to start then allow to fully discharge before charging the first time (for accurate battery level reporting). So far it's been 7 days and we've used the handset for a couple of hours in that time and it's only just gone to 25%!

    Built in remote control answering machine with variable answer time depending on message left or not, and speech prompts, clarity of recordings is good. Usual cellphone method of holding "1" to get to it.

    This set is a quality piece of equipment from Siemens. I bought it primarily as my wife is slightly deaf in one ear so i needed units that were resonably loud on call and earpiece. The gigaset covers all the bases, easy to set up, good instructions and nice clear sound from the speakers. Only two small negatives, the phone melodies are naff, and the shiny black plastic rear cover scratches easily, but the overall build still makes it a 5*

    Style Name: Trio Verified Purchase
    Excellent Cordless Phone set for home use which are relatively simple to set-up. Good level of volume on ringer tones and during calls. Speech is clear to hear using the handsets and the wireless range is excellent given that the handsets work throughout the property. Handsets are light and comfortable to hold for long calls etc. Easy to see that a message has been recorded on the Answer Machine which is easily accessed from all handsets as well as the base unit. Compared to my aging Binatone cordless set, this set is a definate step up in quality.

    Thought that these three DECT handsets were very good value, as the base included answer phone and they are made by Siemens.
    Easy to set up and use. sound quality better than our old twin set-up (which as GAP compatible we added to the system in spare rooms).

    Very pleased with these, definitely would recommend.

    I bought this Gigaset to replace one I've had since 1996. I loved that phone but the buttons finally stopped working. My new C300A is a vast improvement, simple to operate, good menus, incredible battery life (can work for nearly a week off the charger!), and I like the ringtones (modern, cool, some very cheesy but fun). The answer machine is simple too, controlled by logical buttons on the base station and also through the handset. No regrets, quality at a great price.

    Style Name: Twin
    Solid, no nonsense styling, the two tone black and silver and rectangular design have an almost retro appeal. I like the simplicity and they're comfortable to hold. The build quality seems to be up to the usual Seimens (Gigaset) quality. The most important feature for me is the hands free option, it works well on my desk as long as I have it on the highest volume setting and the cradle sits fairly close to me. You can also use the speaker phone when holding the handset and switch easily between speaker phone and using the phone held to your ear. It does everything I want it to do, has all the usual features, quick dial, address book, intercom etc. It has a big selection of ring tones and for frequent callers you can assign a unique ring tone so you automatically know who is calling. You can also let the phone go through to the answering machine and screen the message, picking up if you want to take the call. Retrieval of messages is very easy using the handset. When in the cradle you can customise the display information, my phone displays date and time which is very handy. I've also noticed that the annoying echo I used to get on long distance calls has stopped! The display screen is quite small but big enough to make out the appropriate icons and the numbers are big enough even when I haven't got my glasses on. As you would expect it there are various icons indicating missed calls or messages left and there also is a key on the bottom left hand corner which flashes when you have a missed call or message. All in all a good quality piece of kit at a very fair price, which I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. I've had mine successfully in use for nearly three months now.
