Brilliant bit of kit ! Brought two 70 ++ year olds into this century !!

The first thing that i will say about the SL400 phones is that they are not cheap, after having numerous BT branded phones (that were of dubious quality) and a few Binatone phones(that were even worse) over the last few years i thought it was time to bite the bullet and splash out on what i can only describe as one of the best phones i have ever seen or used.
The first thing that you notice about the phones as you unpack them is the weight and build quality, they comprise of a nice chromium plated solid metal frame and a metal keypad similar to the laser cut key pads of the Motorola Razr. The batteries install easily and are of the flat lithium-ion type you find in mobile phones. Once the batteries are installed and the shiny black back is clipped on you realise that all that chrome and shiny black is going to show up all the fingerprints. Belt clips are supplied as an option if you want to use them and do not really detract from the overall design of the phone.
Once the screen bursts into life the display quality is excellent and is as good as or better than some mobile phone displays. The phone cradles are also well made with a removable power connector that clips into the base. The cradles/charging stations did initially seem rather light but once the handsets are dropped in they appear to be stable and the rubber feet stop them from slipping.
The answer phone base unit again was a surprise the size is quite minute compared to some, the unit can be wall mounted and is also supplied with a rather nice clip on back that holds the power connector and telephone cable in place. Once plugged in the handsets registered with no problems.
Setting up the phones was a doddle, the use of the Bluetooth made it possible to transfer my entire directory from my Sony-Ericsson to the one handset, the directory was then copied to the additional handsets using the copy facility. The layout of the menu was simple and similar to that of a mobile phone.
It's too soon to comment on the standby battery life as the manual states 230 hours although this will only be achievable after a few charge discharge cycles.
Having only really used the most basic features of the phones and answering machine i am totally impressed and wish i had brought a decent set of Siemens phones instead of all the cheaper models. As these phones come with a two year guarantee Siemens have covered all the bases.
So if anyone is thinking of getting a set of the SL400 phones all i can say is go ahead, i don't think you will be disappointed and in many ways, you get what you pay for. On a final note the service from LiGo was excellent.

This Gigaset is a lovely phone for the home. It has great reception; loads of functions; an intuitive interface (more like a mobile than any of the home phones we've had in the past); a solid feel and an easy set up. I can't think of any reason not to recommend it, apart from its cost - it isn't cheap, but go for it if you can afford it.

I have had several quad-handset answerphones over the years, Philips, several BT’s, Panasonic, etc, but nothing compares to the quality of this phone. From the instant you pick it up you can feel the difference. A bit like stepping from a run-of-the mill family car into a new S-Class Mercedes. Battery life is excellent - I’ve had the phone over a year now, and I’ve yet to see the low battery warning. It has a 500-name phonebook and sound clarity and functions are all superb. Best phone I ever bought, and even though I hesitated over the price, well worth the extra.

These are without a doubt the best phones that we have ever had the pleasure of using. I was hesitant about shelling out so much for a pair of landline phones, but I replace my mobile gets replaced every year with no qualms and I expect these to last for many years to come. My wife fell in love with them as soon as we opened the box - the handsets have a nice weight to them and they feel very well-made not to mention look stylish with the quality metal finish.\nAudio on them is absolutely astoundingly clear, even on hands-free, which is a definite plus. The ringer could be louder, but this has just given me occasion to carry one about in my pocket with the vibrate on (the battery on it seems to last forever).\nBluetooth was extremely useful in helping me to update the address book. I haven\'t yet added photos to my contacts, though may decide to do so in future. At the moment, the analogue clock screensaver suits me fine.\nAll in all, we have been mightily impressed, and I would highly recommend to anyone looking for good quality cordless phones

Great service and great price

Though the product feels very nice and has a great look, its very small. The redial function on the phone is a 2-step process, and to dial directly one has to hold the dial key for a second or two before a dial tone appears...a bit annoying.

We have had a cordless phone in the house for many years and had got used to a crackly line. We decided to buy this product and the difference is amazing - clear sound, great directory etc and Bluetooth as well. An excellent product.
