Features: Supplied ready for use with modern telephone sockets. Fully compatible with the BT telephone network and cable networks (Virgin, Telewest etc).

It looks and feels like the original, even the blanking plate on the top is actually a blanking plate and not just a moulded bump.
It differs from the original in that it has a different handset cable, but only slightly, more the strain relief moulding than the cable itself. The base is lighter, the old ones were full of metal and huge components, obviously this has modern components and less metal, its not flyaway light though. The earpiece and mouthpiece cups are moulded and do not unscrew like the originals, why would you want to unscrew them anyway and you cannot tell as they still have the lines where the old phone parts would have separated, so you find it hard to tell its not original.
I did find the font a bit weird on the dial, maybe because the numbers are raised rather than recessed into the old rotary dials? It might be the same but looks odd. It has the Dial 999/phone number card, just like the originals, find a typewriter and add your own number for total authenticity :-)
Really a very, very good copy and people comment on how clear I sound, as do they, so it works well too.
I love it, have it on my home office desk.
Do wish they did an ivory one with an original push button keyboard with the square buttons rather than copying the old rotary dial but none of those seem to have copied the buttons correctly, maybe thats something they can do for a future version?
