From the start the sound quality of the phones was not brilliant but lived with the inconvenience as not overly expensive and mostly use my mobile.

After just over one year of use the main handset has stopped working: the word 'base' is flashing to indicate that out of range of the base unit or is not registered. As the handset it on the base unit range obviously not an issue and phone will not re-register assuming this was a problem.

Gigaset help line not helpful as if not one of these two problems they have no idea so simply broken - having used this particular handset less than 50 times build quality must be very poor.

I needed a very basic drill for occasional use and this appeared to fit the bill as did not break the bank.

After owning this drill for several months and used for wood/plaster/brick my conclusion is that the drill is acceptable, however, the pieces do not lock as robustly as I would like. As for the drill bits and other extra bits the quality is quite low and would have liked less bits but of a higher quality and strength.

Overall this is an ok drill but the accessories are very poor.

Next very basic test was to reheat a cup of coffee - again no joy and now automatically cutting off after 20/30 seconds irrespective of the time I enter.

Did not get round to testing the oven/grill options as now returning as faulty. A bit frustrating staying in all Saturday morning for deliver and now having to organize return during the week as will not pick up at the weekends (Seems strange that… Read more
