Gigaset SL400A Digital Telephone and Answering Machine, Twin DECT, Black/Silver 4.6 5 17 17
Great quality I have always bought Panasonic phones to date but have been disappointed with the sound quality of the last two so decided to go for these siemens phones. I have had them for about a month now and am very pleased with all aspects, sound, quality, easy set up, and smart appearance. 23 February 2014
Super neat phone system Read other reviews, found all the 5 star ones to match my own experience - fairly idiot proof set up - i agree the phones do way more than we need but you don't need to worry about that- they really do work well, are instinctive to use and you can gradually learn more if you need to. They replaced rubbish BT phones which were cheap and didn't last. Easy to hear ringtone and great travel distance. 05 February 2014
SL400A I was thinking hard whether to pay a premium for this set which I bought as a 4 set. I had read that when it comes to cordless, Siemens are like the Rolls Royce. In opening - it was worth it. Quality metal casing, lighter than I expected (downside) but excellent call quality. Dated icons, but nice feel - and great ringtones. 8.5/10! 29 January 2014
would not recommend I am in the process of returning the handset and base to gigaset for the 2nd time in 2 months. Both handsets have an intermittent echo/volume issue that deafens you whilst you are on the telehone. And one base does not work, it was (apparently) fixed for a fee by Gigaset even though the item is still under guarantee. 23 January 2014
First rate telephone set Looks good. Feels good. Sounds good. I am delighted with my purchase which was also so simple to achieve via the John Lewis website. Would recommend to anyone looking to buy a dual handset system. 22 October 2013
Misses out on a final star This is far and away the best landline phone you can probably buy. The build quality and options available on this phone are incredible, and it's very well designed. As for the negatives, there are three that I have found (the first two pertain to contact sync): 1. When you sync contacts from, say, Outlook - it automatically includes birthdays and automatically sets a calendar notification for every day there's a birthday. These cannot be disabled, which is very annoying when you have hundreds of contacts - each with a birthday on almost every day of the year. 2. Contact sync from Outlook does not work with 64-bit Microsoft Office. We have had to uninstall the 64-bit version and install the 32-bit version to enable us to use the contact sync capability of this phone. 3. As I have just discovered, if - like me - you receive an obscene amount of cold calls during the day, on the positive side you can disable the ringer between certain times, so these calls simply go to answerphone. On the negative side, there is no way to delete all the messages on the answerphone without listening to them all first. I have over 50 messages, and I can't be bothered to go through deleting them all. This is a massive oversight, which can in theory be fixed by a firmware update. But I don't hold much hope in that being fixed, sadly. So - as an overall rating of three stars is apparently "average", it wouldn't be fair to give the whole phone three stars. It's considerably better than average, overall. However it's also far from perfect, so I can't honestly give it five stars. If you hope to use the advanced functions of this phone, just be aware there are these limitations. 28 December 2012
different class super looking and very high tech land line phones..so much better than BT and other competitors.Easy to use though taking a while to get hang of voicemail facility.Quality does come at a price as these phones are so much priceier than others . 29 November 2012
Quality kit Our previous Siemens Gigaset (4000) system eventually gave up the ghost after 10 years of trouble free use so we looked to replace with the latest version. Although relatively expensive, the system is of excellent build quality and has numerous facilities to bring our communication system right up to date. With crystal clear sound quality for calls and message recording to match its good looks, we are delighted with this purchase. The click and collect service from our local Waitrose ensured we had our phones within 24 hours of ordering! First class service. 30 October 2012
