This cordless phone with built-in answer machine is a great value for money model at around €100. You can add extra handsets and repeaters to the system.
The phone has a back-lit LCD display and soft button keypad so you can use the phone when light conditions aren't very good. It also has call barring, redial memory, call sharing and the phone book can be copied between handsets.
It has a 100 name and number memory with a 50 space caller ID which means you can see who is phoning you if their details have been previously saved.
This Philips has a recording of 60 minutes and allows you to store a generous 250 names and numbers. It also has an excellent standby facility of 250 hours.
It can be linked to three other handsets and has special features -- such as encrypted calling to try to keep the spymasters of the NSA at bay. Other useful features include a function to monitor the baby, a paging facility and a calendar.
An elegant design, top-quality and an easy-to-use hands-free facility all conspire to make this device, manufactured by a German company, a great phone. Other features include a backlit white keypad and a 100 name and number phonebook.
