EXCELLENT GIGASET HANDSET Cheeky_13astard_Esq 5/5 roll over for details
Good points This phone is by far the best I have ever used. YES i know its expensive and I was in two minds whether to purchase it but after seeing the competition - I have no doubt I made the right choice - THe phone is EXTREMELY EASY to use - its just unbelievable how logically Seimens have laid down all the menus and options - The quality of the handset is just incredible - the screen quality just oozes with sophistication the ring tones are amazing - if anyone wants to see what this phone is like in action just got to youtube.com and type in sl785 or sl780 and you will see two people who have done a review - it will impress the sceptics - i have been waiting since November 2008 for this phone and have been extremely patient - now I know the wait was worth it - Ligo themselves are an amazing company - very helpful on the phone - super fast delivery - i have checked out all the other phone companies in the UK on google - they are totally crap - they are clueless - ringing their customer service just left me with a bitter experience - However Ligo is good - AND NO i dont have shares in Ligo or work for them HAHA
Bad points Well its a pricey piece of kit - but i ask you this when people buy mobile phones such as an IPHONE they end up paying 700-800 quid and they replace mobile phones annually - when people buy cordless phones for the home they keep them much longer so at just over a 100 quid per handset for what it does - ITS IMPRESSIVE
I m a fussy buyer and I just cant fault the handset - i wish I could but features such as putting music for callers on hold - the soothing melodies etc etc IM in love with this phone - its the next best thing to my gf and sliced bread

WOW! Anonymous 5/5 roll over for details
Good points I really dont know where to start. Firstly it looks amazing. Metal case and a truley gorgous display. I love it! It has all the usual features (and then some more). The sound quality has been great too. We've not had it for a very long but I'm so glad we bought this instead of another model we had in mind.
Bad points Didnt come out sooner.
Can I add more handsets to it?

Pricey - but worth it! Anonymous 4.5/5 roll over for details
Good points 1. Good solid look & feel with a durable finish. Feels great in the hand, much like my iphone.
2. Large memory storage capacity (easy transfer via bluetooth)
3. Excellent answer machine performance
4. The discreet remote hub is a very good idea as it means that each of the handsets can be used in every location.
5. lots of features, didn't had time to explore all of them yet
Bad points bit too expensive, but you get what you pay for
Just had this phone for 2 weeks, but so glad I upgraded from my previous BT phones. This phone is all about style. It looks great in a modern setting, and immediately draws attention. Some of my friends didn't believe, it's actually a cordless phone, but a mobile.

BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD SandS 5/5 roll over for details
Good points The invention of the wheel was a major step for mankind this phone goes beyond that. Siemens have left no stone unturned in the design matched with quality and looks. To have all the requirements one needs i.e. phone, answer machine and ability to use as a hands free with such clarity all round its a pleasure to have these phones in our home/work environment. Many people have mentioned simular reports and I have to agree with them 100%. DON'T MISS OUT on this phone (forget about cost) and you won't be disapointed. We certainly were not. Have only given 9 on battery life as I have not had chance yet to make a definate assessment.
Bad points None re the phones.
The Repeater could have had a more solid base simular to the cradles for the phones as I need to place it on my desk in my work area maybe Siemens should think of this in their next model other than that "Excellent".

I wrestled with the price but then it is the best Peter 5/5 roll over for details
Good points Smart & stylish, packed full of features & easy to set up. You can sych to Outlook Express or Outlook 2003 or 2007, whatever you happen to have installed on your computer.
Bad points Not a big one but until I read different it appears that you have to synch each phone separately. It would be nice for the data to wend its way around the network.
I hesitated for a long time but I made the right decision, buy with confidence

Expensive but worth every penny Anonymous 5/5 roll over for details
Good points Siemens have exelled with this product. Not only is it stylish but the sound quality is fantastic. I have bought many cordless telephone answer machines from major manufacturers over several years and have found them all to be less than adequate. Highly recommended
Bad points The only negative is the price but this is easily forgotten once you start using the product.

A "proper" phone for a well connected home Anonymous 4/5 roll over for details
Good points Slick user interface and bright crisp display. Great feature where the answer phone sends an SMS to you when a message is left - if you text it back it will phone you up to play you the message. Synchronisation with Outlook is effortless - unless previous versions which were clunky.
I've always been disappointed with cordless phones, as they offer far fewer features than mobile phones - albeit mobiles cost £100s if not subsidised by mobile networks. But this handset closes the gap, with a beautiful display, ability to synchronise contact details with Outlook, and a well designed answer phone function. Handset design is modern, stylish, and weighted so you can "feel the quality".

A touch of class Anonymous 4.5/5 roll over for details
Good points The line quality is great and the phone looks fantastic. The screen is large and clear with a subtle use of colours.
Bad points The numeric buttons can be hard to see during daylight.
This is a high quality phone which looks great. The screen is really clear and the design gives it an expensive look and feel. The phone is easy to use and synchronising one to the other was really easy and quick. I am delighted with the purchase and although it is an expensive phone,it is worth every penny.

Brilliant phones. My second purchase David 5/5 roll over for details
Good points Excellent sound quality. The handsets and charging cradles look great. Very easy to use.
Bad points No real bad points. I had trouble setting the phones but the liGo technical help service were brilliant and sorted me out in seconds.
I have bought several phones from liGo and I will always buy from them because of their wonderful service.

Cordless Phones-this is the best Anonymous 5/5 roll over for details
Good points Fabulous phone, its got everything from looks to features.
Bad points Nothing really, just rated 9 on the price, had to think about it because of being on pension, but you have to pay if you want quality.
Buy this phone with confidence, you wont be dissapointed. Must say Ligo give excellent friendly service. Will recommend to all.

Best phone I've ever had, but a bit pricy. gBone 4.5/5 roll over for details
Good points A very good phone. SMS notification of voice messages / missed calls is very useful and leaves people thinking you are telepathic! Carrier Preselection with exception prefixes is very good if you use an alternative carrier such as 18185.co.uk. Copying the address book between handsets / PC is nice (if you are a microsoft fan but I would prefer a generic format) I also liked the Electronic Picture frame, and the transmitter being separate from the phones.
Bad points A tad expensive. Contacts only in Microsoft format. The keypad is a bit too smooth to dial without looking at the phone and looks slightly insubstantial. A slight hissing - not bad though. However the good points vastly outweigh the bad.

The best around Gerry 4.5/5 roll over for details
Good points Extremely clear sound quality throughout a large house with 18 inch internal and external walls.
Does everything that we expect of it
Similar user logic to that found in the latest mobiles
Bad points 1. Initial noise problems could not be explained by Siemens support, they said the base unit was faulty and to return exchange the units. My daughter fitted ADSL splitters to each telephone point which we might wish to fit the base unit to and the problem was immediately and completely resolved. Looking at other reviews this may have been the problem that others have experienced as seen in their reviews. Siemens should be able to give this sort of advice, not just the set-up procedure that is found in the instruction booklet.
2. Handset is smooth and it would be easy to let it slip from your hand. The belt clip provided gives additional grip. Suggest having an additional cheap phone for outdoor use.

At last, a cordless phone for the 21st Century! Anonymous 4.5/5 roll over for details
Good points Syncs with Outlook, deals with Intl. codes on local numbers, sends sms notifications to your mobile for missed calls, and hey it does all the phone things very well too!
Bad points Makes you want to keep making phone calls.....
Seriously though, a very well thought out cordless phone. A good mix for a home & home office environment.

Siemens Gigaset SL785 Cordless Phone Anonymous 4.5/5 roll over for details
Good points It's more than adequate for my home domestic requirements, love the futuristic styling and versatility of this new purchase.
For business use, I would think it would be a useful addition to any small office, with it's extra extension facilities and call transfer.
Bad points Initially, the Technical Guide Manual, for me was a little hard to understand, but all became clear after setup and several calls later.
Dealing with liGo was a very good experience, from placing my order, in all it took 4 days for delivery and, I was informed about it's progress throughout, which I appreciated.

Siemens Gigaset SL785 review Rich T 4.5/5 roll over for details
Good points Pricey but you get what you pay for. Great phone, very like a mobile. Base units quite weighty and classy. Will be reading the instruction manual for the next two years to better understand all of the features ! Remote base station nice idea as you can hide it away out of site.
Bad points None to mention.
Well impressed with ligo. Delivery was very rapid and within an hour of the appointed slot.
Great communication would use again.

You get what you pay for! Tony, Birmingham 4.5/5 roll over for details
Good points Build quality, battery life, will take MP3's as ringtones!
Bad points Still looking
Bought this duo set after having owned Philips and Panasanonic. Expensive - yes, but you get what you pay for. I read many reviews before buying. The main critisism I read was concerning the directory order being sorted alphabetically by surname only. All you need to do is put the full name in the First Name field (up to 18 characters). It'll even accept spaces (no need for underscores like most other 'phones I've come across). Lovely bit of kit (I never write reviews!). And Ligo were brilliant.
