Very highly regarded for clarity and functionality. Majority of reviews are very good or excellent. Researched quite a bit, before settling on this model. It is brilliant. Wife uses it quite a lot and is very pleased with it, especially the hands free function and the fact that its radiation free. Cant find it cheaper than this anywhere else. I'm very happy with it, just thought i would share for anyone interested. Here's the blurb:

Busy lives demand a reliable, well-equipped telephone with an answering machine . The ideal solution for active families: the Gigaset C595 Twin. It features a best-in-class, large TFT colour display , an easy-to-use modern user interface, brilliant sound quality with HSP, plus an integrated answering machine with up to 45 minutes of recording time. For even more convenience and simplicity in daily telephony, it features a baby alarm , programmable VIP ring tones and a talk time of up to 12 hours. And if you pay attention to the environmental and financial impact of your energy use, you'll be pleased with the Gigaset C595 Twin radiation-free and energy-saving ECO DECT technology. The Gigaset C595 Twin offers the perfect fusion of quality technology, refined design and easy-to-use features - the ideal phone for any family's living room. The Gigaset C595 Twin make a new fashion statement with their harmonious form and glossy exterior in black and white piano lacquer. The color spectrum of the icon-aided menu on the 1.8" TFT display (65,000 colors) has been tuned to the color of the device. When users dial, the numbers are shown in a particularly large size; if desired, a larger font size can also be set. The combination of high-quality design and excellent ease of use convinced the reddot jury to bestow the "reddot design award 2009" on these devices. The Siemens Gigaset c595 Twin phone enable new possibilities in caller and contact management. They can store up to 150 entries (including three phone numbers and e-mail address), which can be organized in six different VIP groups and assigned different ringtones and colors for individual callers. The last 30 incoming calls are always registered in the call list, along with the time of the call (CLIP/CNIP). The selective call blocking feature means that users are not disturbed by anonymous calls; those from suppressed or unknown numbers are no longer signaled acoustically.

Yes, i think it's about £28 though, so maybe better paying a little extra and having a spare?

i don't need the answering machine. but i guess it can be turned off forever.

generally speaking , are siemens phones any good , ??

Im on my 5th cordless phone now in as many years , current cordless is a 18 month old panasonic , but the keys have started to fail already , or is 18months the normal life span of a cordless ?

Durability was another issue which i considered and again Siemens seemed to come up trumps. Had mine for a while now and no probs. A lot of reviews i read said something like "far better than my old panny". At the end of the day you pays your money and you takes your chances, but i always check that my money isnt going to be totally wasted.

I've got a model down from this one and I'm not too happy with them. Sound quality is ok, but only ok. Volume isn't very good at all and I've got 100% hearing.

Previously had Panasonics and couldn't fault them. I'll be going back to Panasonics eventually.

Got this - with FOUR phones around the house - and can back up claims of clarity etc.

The BEST, to put it simply.
And these aren't even the best Siemens phones you can get either.
Expensive, but worth it.

thanks, will save me time looking for new set

Anyone seen a cheap charging dock for these?

I forgot to run the phone line for the phone during our refurb, which means I have to currently locate the dock with the alarm or AV kit. Although battery lasts quite long (only used for calling NGN's, lines mainly there for broadband) the damn thing is always on the charger when you actually want to use it.
