This set looks good, feels good and the reception is great even though I have the base unit located next to my PC and near my router, both of which are not recommended in the manual.

Giving each handset a descriptive name makes intercom calls between handsets really easy, no more remembering a handset by it's number {can't change default ring tone for intercom calls though}.
Each handset can optionally display it's name/date and time and have different wallpapers/colours/ringtones.
The display will also show "line in use" if one of the other handsets is currently on a call.
Transferring an external call is really easy {Press intercom, select handset, then when other handset has answered you hang up........call transferred}.
Speed dialling available.
Auto Talk option {lift handset to answer a call}.
Privacy mode: if you don't want other handsets listening in on your call.
LCD display by default setting is always lit when in charging mode, but you can turn this feature off.
SMS' pre-configured for BT Text, can be private or publicly available.
Call barring if you have Caller ID, up to 30 numbers...... great for those pesky call centres.
Memo alarm: once or daily.
Night mode for each handset, for those times you don't want the handset to ring. {you can allow certain category of callers from your phonebook to override this setting}
Call restriction on selected handsets, up to 6 numbers or area codes.
Remote access: Voice guidance prompts can be heard instead of having to remember or write down button presses.
Maximum number of rings before answer machine kicks in can be set up to 7.
Callers recording time can be up to 3 mins.

In some ways, this is a great piece of kit. Easy to set up, feature rich, and the wireless signal seems to be pretty good. I have quite a big house, and there is no problem with the phone at the far end of the house from where the base station is communicating with the base station, even in eco mode.

However, I do think there is one major drawback with this system, which is that most things that you do with it are specific to a particular handset. For example, if you enter a number into the phone directory, it is only stored in that handset's directory. If you want it to be available to other handsets, you have to copy it.

There is a feature that allows you to copy a number to another handset. However, it only does it to one handset at a time, so if you have 4 handsets, you have to copy the number 3 times. Annoyingly, not everything about the number is copied. One nice feature of this system is the ability to put numbers into user-defined categories (eg "friends", "family", "work", or whatever else you like). Not only can you browse the phone directory by category, but you can also set up different ringtones for different categories.

The category information is not copied when you copy a phone number, so you have to set this up again. You also have to name the categories and specify their ringtones separately for each handset. If you have 4 handsets, that is a bit of a ballache.

Sometimes, it's nice to have handset-specific settings. For example, we have the display turned off when not in use on the handset in the bedroom, so we are not disturbed by the light from it at night.

Perhaps the independence of the handsets would be an advantage in a shared house if you have a number of people living independent lives with the same system, but if you want all the handsets to do the same things, then I would avoid this system, as it is far more fiddly to set up some of the advanced features than it needs to be.

Buy them, best phones I have had, seen and used. I read a couple of negative comments, one was the naming of the handsets which is possible if you read the manual or in my case simply figure it out with the menu's. The second issue was with coverage which I have had no issue with in my large house although I note that the number of bars reduces at the extreme's.

Bought this as a gift for my Mum and Dad, and had the dubious honour of setting it all up for them. I needn't have worried, as it's pretty straightforward.
I left the units on charge overnight before I connected it to their telephone line and programmed all of the settings. The ability to 'copy' across from one phone to another is a great feature, and saved so much time setting up.
The phones look good, the range is great, and of course you only need to make sure that the base unit (with the answering machine bit attached) is near a phone socket and mains supply.
All of the other handsets can be situated anywhere, the only requirement is that there is a normal mains socket near the phone, and that each handset is within range of the receiver (base unit). In a 'normal' house, I wouldn't anticipate any problems as all of the handsets worked for me first time.
Mum and Dad found the large colourful clear display and the 'night' feature really useful. Dad is partially disabled and tends to slide off to bed early in the evening. We have programmed the upstairs phones not to ring after 7:00 pm, and come back on at 9:00 am. This means that Dad is rarely disturbed by the phones ringing downstairs when he's gone to bed, but the phone can still be answered upstairs if you hear it ringing downstairs. As I said, simple, but a great feature.
Previous models were criticised for the lack of ringtone selections. I can't really comment because I'm not in a position to compare, but I will say that there are about 20 to choose from, one of which is a Christmas tune! At the end of the day, this is a telephone. 30 years ago, all telephones sounded pretty much the same. 'Ring Ring' I think it was, so I think it's trivial to get too hung up over the style and number of ringtones available.
