All show no go Anonymous 1.5/5 roll over for details
Good points Organic shape, beautifully sculptured, feels lovely in your hand.
Bad points Poor sound quality and constant background humming noise not related to signal strength. Phonebook and answer phone difficult to use daily.
The poor sound quality overshadows the good points. Would not recommend it unless you only want to look at it.

Good points Design
Bad points Sound quality
Difficult to add the 3rd handset
Worth buying as an alternative to the boring ubiquitous stand-up handsets

MagicBox Colombo - Quad pack Anonymous 3/5 roll over for details
Good points Fabulous design, comfortable to hold, even for longer periods. The range is the best I've known (and I've tried a few). The phones sit very easily into their cradles (unlike so many, which seem to balance precariously on their ends). I know the white pick up dirt from sticky fingers (the children's obviously) but I'm happy to suffer that.
Bad points The bad stuff; well, it wasn't a cheap pack (despite Ligo's excellent discount) and for the money, set up and features were a little 1990's. All the design effort seems to have gone into the look and feel, not how you might use it. I had to phone (on my mobile) the MagicBox helpline a couple of times to fight my way through the set up of all 4 phones. Once done, they work fine. Entering data is a pain but it usually is on any phone. Menu structure is basic but ok.
In the end, I'm very happy with the phones. They do their simple job very well and they look really good.
