3.0 out of 5 stars Solid build but poor extendible grip, 29 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Generally good value for the price. The window sucker and arm are sturdily built and work well, however product is let down by the 'extendible gripper arms' that squeeze the phone to hold it - the latch which secures the arms is fiddly to lock and can easily come open.

3.0 out of 5 stars Amusing and clever, but broke down after a week, 2 Jan 2012
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
I really liked this alarm clock, bought for my young son as a Christmas present. It looks really nice, made from sturdy plastic, and he enjoyed playing with the metal marbles setting off the cockerel sound. The actions are nice, the cockerel sound is good, and the bell is good. Its a clever design and very amusing to watch.

However... I would like to give it 5 stars but cannot, because, after about a week of use the motor on the bell seized up and stopped working altogether. Now its just an ornament / manual toy, the alarm clock function without the bell motor the balls cannot be triggered. Disappointed. I took it apart to see if I could get it to work, inside the clock is of a very cheap construction, I doubt it would last long as an alarm clock. Well, it's just a toy, and serves its purpose as an amusing alarm but could not be relied upon as a real alarm clock if you needed to actually wake up.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and unreliable, 2 Jan 2012
I bought this as a Christmas present for my wife, but I found the device to be unreliable / faulty - pressing the button would sometimes set off the beeper and sometimes not. At first I thought it was the battery on the receiver was low so I changed it (a standard CR2032 lithium) but it made no difference. The battery in the transmitter is an odd mini-12V which I have never seen before.... Possibly if you replace the batteries it will work like a charm, the range does seem good and the beep is reasonably loud, but as it came out of the box for me it did not work reliably. Disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good solid phones, do the job well, 22 Dec 2011
Simple to setup, excellent range, easy to use, loud ringtone, good audio call quality. They do exactly as described, no more no less. I've been very pleased with them.
If you're looking for a basic phone then these do the job. They don't have many features or fancy functions, but that's the reason I bought them - to make phone calls, reliably. So far they've been rock solid.
Only downside - they do not look very modern, a bit dated appearance. Also, a very minor point but the handset has a soft orange light which glows when on charge, which cannot be turned off, this is a little annoying for the bedroom at night (I fixed by covering with black tape).
