There's a few at that price but all ex-display models. The phones also get shocking reviews on Amazon, has put me right off them!

did not see that thay was ex-display models so voted hot hot hot

I bought a set of these phones when they first came out and the voice quality was terrible. There was so much hiss I sent them back.

Not voting either way.

I also bought these when they first came out and were quite expensive, but they are worth every penny. The battery life is great, the sound quality is excellent as you can alter the volume.
Answer phone is really good, I could go on (but won't). Good buy.

Please go and read the reviews on Amazon (and elsewhere) before you buy. These came up on HUKD a while back and despite reading the negative reviews I still decided to go ahead with the purchase. It was the worst decision I have ever made. The handsets are notorious for crashing and resetting (typically during a call, thus dropping calls right, left and centre). I would hear them 'pip' on average 4 times a day, the 'pip' being an audible indication of the phone crashing and resetting. The manufacturers are aware of the fault and can offer no solution.

I don't deny that these handsets have brilliant features but they are like a time bomb. Please buy at your own risk. I don't wish to cause undue worry but please, if you regard your phone as a lifeline - then please steer clear.

Like most people, I'm happy to put up with most software bugs but I've never experienced a product as flawed as these phones. 9/10 buyers rue the day they bought them. There is a good reason why these phones are no longer in production. They are truly 'not fit for purpose'.

me too... i got twin pack
they crash, beep when left on base, voice sound quality is terrible
AND they are very cheap feeling plastic brick
now looking at replacing them

These are very poorly made. I bought the triple version and two out of three used to cut out during calls. My mate has the double version and both of his cut out also.

I got rid of mine and bought Panasonic!

agree with the general sentiment - these phones are crap! Don't be fooled by pictures, in reality they are ugly bulky bricks. If numbers are being keyed in, call cuts if there is a slight movement in sliding mechanism. eugh horrible horrible phone

I bought these - great phones but had one set replaced after 1 month and had to get second set refunded after 4 months.
I really liked the phones but they were just poor quality - and a quick google found the same faults on too many so got my money back.
