I have purchased numerous cordless phones over the past few years and have been disappointed with all of them for a variety of different reasons and a long-list of problems. Therefore, it was after much trepidation that I decided to spend more on these C570A than on any other set and I have to admit that I’ve been very impressed.
They were extremely easy to set up. The handsets are very stylish with a nice weight and feel to them. The keypad numbers are reasonably large and easy to operate, and the large backlight colour display works great and is easy to see and read in the dark.
The phone has an excellent “time control” setting, which means that it won’t ring at pre-programmed times unless it is from a phonebook contact you’ve assigned a VIP status to. It also has an impressive answer machine that can record thirty minutes of messages, and is a separate unit to the handset.
One of the best things though has to be the sound quality and volume control. There are 5 different levels for the earpiece and the loudspeaker and the clarity of callers is excellent on both.
I am very happy with these phones and hope that they will last us a number of years to come!

I managed to get these on a good deal so although I didn't really need the 4 handsets I got the extra just to have a spare. Firstly, I should say that they were bought to replace a much older set of Panasonic phones that I needed to retire and so far I have noticed a big improvement. I deliberated for a long time between these and the new BT Premium which has better nuisance call blocking but thankfully it’s not something we’re bothered with very often so I wasn’t swayed in the end. These Gigaset Phones do have some call blocking features, which work fine for us so far.
I've noticed that although the sound quality is exceptionally clear the volume even on the loudest setting could be louder, which may not be adequate for all users. For us it is fine and the speaker phone works well.
Some further points.
1) Good looking design.
2) Exceptional sound on calls
3) Colour screen with changeable wallpaper
4) Answer machine speaker and led indicator + ringer (previous one didn't have this)
5) Can turn off display when charging - good when you've got one in the bedroom
6) Phonebook entries entered in one handset can be transmitted to all other handsets. (This was a tedious manual process on the last phone)
7) Phone entries now allow multiple numbers for each person
8) Intercom allows auto answer (set on individual handsets) and conference calls
9) Allows naming of each handset for easy identification.
10) Remote control of phone allows you to phone in to get your messages
11) Nice feature to compliment is that you can give your answer machine a phone number to call when a message is left. Good feature to have for some.
1) Somewhat lower sound volume
2) Changeable wallpaper yes but not many choices and no custom option (shame)
3) Ringtones - quite a lot to choose from but finding one that doesn't make you cringe is difficult.
4) CPU is fairly slow when searching or scrolling down phone list. They definitely could have done better here either in choice of processor or better searching algorithms.
5) Call blocking features limited when compared to BT
In conclusion and from my lengthy research there is no phone that is going to satisfy everyone's requirement (I don't think it exists!) but if you want a better than average phone with clear sound, lots of features and blocks individual numbers when needed this is it. For nuisance calls it appears the main choices are BT but frankly I find it hard to buy anything BT but that's just me.

The phone is an excellent on calls but the ringtone at full power is so quiet that if the tv is on or the various noises in the kitchen (extractor fan, oven, boiling kettle etc) then I miss quite a lot of calls. I am thinking of sending it back

Superb phone systems, does exactly what they claim, ring tones good, loud system . Was concerned about volume having read the reviews posted, but I needn't have been, because though deaf in one ear, I can hear everything, and use the loud speaker system too which is loud and clear. All phones interlinked for putting new numbers in which is brilliant. Would recommend to anyone, excellent we bought 5!

Over the years I have had a variety of cordless phone sets (many of them from BT) but none of them have been even half as good as this Gigaset Premium C570A set. It is just brilliant - very well designed with great intuitive features, great performance with amazing clarity and range and good battery life. If it also stays reliable over the years it will be worth every penny of its cost!

Good solid product. Main reason for purchase was sound quality which is excellent even though we are both hard of hearing. Service, back up info and delivery first class - no hesitation to give five stars. Expensive but you only get what you pay for so well worth the money

Really please with phones, much better than I thought. no problem in recommending them.

Chose these after much research to replace 20+ year old and failing Bang & Olufsen set. Relatively easy to set up and still learning about some of the additional functionality, but delighted so far with reliability and range. Only quibble would be, as others have pointed out, the limited range of ring tones, which ends up with choosing the 'least worst' tone! Nevertheless, very pleased and no regrets.

We’ve had some miserable luck this year with home phones. Ordered a cheap set off argos that broke within a week. Then opted for a set of BT phones from John Lewis, which stopped working after a week. Gave them the benefit of doubt and let John Lewis replace them with a new set. Low and behold same fault occurred within days (maybe faulty batch from BT?)!! Needless to say they just went back for refund. Long story short I decided to do some research before rushing into buying the next set…
It was a toss up between Gigaset and Panasonic but judging from the reviews I read Gigaset seemed to have the edge. Bit pricier but after already forking out for two sets I was prepared to spend a bit more for something that was actually going to work!
From my understanding this C570A is the newest cordless phone from Gigaset so couldn’t find much written about it online but based on feedback on other models decided to just bite the bullet as liked the look of it. Here’s my feedback on it so far:
+ Design - looks and feels like a premium quality product (miles better than the BT job we got from john lewis)
+ Sound quality- speakerphone is brilliant and the sound quality overall is better than previous phones
+ Well made- feels like it has been better made than the bt phones
+ Ringtones- nice selection though some are a bit naff
+ Answer machine- is separate from the phone so we don’t need to charge it/keep it at our phone point out in the hall (nice touch!)
+ Range- excellent coverage throughout our home and well into the garden as well.
- Constantly pressing the back button! It’s a minor annoyance but when you’re deep into the sub-menu options there is no way to get back to the home screen without repeatedly pressing the back button. Would’ve been nice if pressing the red end call button doubled up as a home button/reset that took you back to the main display.
- Quite expensive
I’d never heard of ligo before but would use them again. Knowledgeable staff and quick delivery!
