These phones are really easy to set up and I love the facility to copy your numbers from one phone to the others. It means you only have to enter numbers once to have them on all your phones. It is also useful to be able to name each phone as you know where they should be... cordless phones tend to get put down all over the place. The handsets are sturdy and quite attractive. Range and battery life are reasonable. The sound quality is good but I wish there was some way to use the equaliser without taking the phone away from your ear to do it! Rather defeats the object. I chose the model without the answerphone as BT answer does the job these days. Caller ID is displayed if you have the service on your line. When one phone is in use there is a clear "Line in Use" message on the other phones which saves you hassle. You can easily transfer from one phone to another or set up a conference call using multiple handsets. You do have to watch it when you end a call as the button does not always cut you off straight away. You need to check the display to make sure the call has ended.
