This is amazingly close to the original while still being a new product.

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?

Would recommend - more lounge or hall phone than bedside table, only due to size, so ended up with the Protelx GPO corded phone. Prefer the handset on this however, as think easier on long calls than the Protelx.

I like the phone the only drawback is that the volume is too low and you cannot hear the person talking at the other end very clearly. There is no way of increasing the volume.

I replaced my cordless DECT telephone because of health concerns. This is a good replica that I remember from my youth. Beautiful colour, substantial weight and easy to dial (just miss my pre-programmed numbers)...

Bought this so the elderly mother in law could not leave it off the hook as was the case with previous phones. Push buttons can be a little difficult to see if your eyes are not as good as they used to be.

Great phone brought back good memories. Excellent value for money. Took a while to get used to the ring, but now it seems to blend in although the dog does not like it.
