1.0 out of 5 stars Just not good enough for the job, 27 Feb. 2009
This review is from: BT Studio 1100 DECT Cordless Telephone - Silver (Electronics)
I bought a set of these for my (slightly elderly) parents as the handsets had fairly large buttons and were a reasonable price. Then I felt guilty when I realised what a poor buy they were! I expect BT bought them in from Korea or wherever for about 5% of what they subsequently sell them for!

The battery life is pathetic - on a full charge, I found they were giving a paltry 16 minutes of talk time! My own Philips DECT phone has NEVER run out of juice, even in conversations going on over an hour!

My advice: avoid BT branded phones altogether and go for a make that's trusted in the electronics business.

Update: Now, a few months later, talk time is down to 8.5 minutes on a full charge! Despicable.
