Gigaset A420A Twin DECT Cordless Phone, Well worth considering

The gigaset i purchased from you is an exceptionally good buy its very easy to set up and use very smart exterior, would highly recommend.

Everything about phone is excellent, looks, performance quality. Did find sound a little quiet at first but must have adjusted to this as no longer a problem. Really easy to set up and use.

Gigaset A420A Twin DECT Cordless Phone with Answer Machine – Black

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Integrated answering machine with up to 25 minute recording time
  • Large, illuminated 1.8″ display with high contrast
  • Phonebook for up to 100 names and numbers
  • Brilliant HSPTM sound quality, even in handsfree mode
  • Eco Mode Plus

Nice phones bought them for a very fair price and set up was reletively simple. The ringer can be set to very loud which is useful and you have a selection of different ring tones that are ‘interesting’. All in all very happy with my purchase.

Good phones, average sound quality. The phones themselves are fine: as usual ease of use for the commonly used features (especially answer machine) are buried within menus instead of being on a dedicated key, and the quick keys are poorly labelled. The designers have concentrated on including as much as possible, without thinking through carefully what the user actually wants to use frequently. But that is the same with all cordless phones i’ve ever used. Sound quality is only average: better than some other phones, but still muffled. There is the facility to enhance high frequencies, which helps considerably, but still could be improved. Apple manage to build superb quality loudspeakers into their phones (and incredibly small): it’s a pity other manufacturers can’t do the same. I suppose the only thing is to spend hundreds of pounds on a bose phone, but i’d prefer to spend say £20 more per phone to have a really good speaker.

Perfect wireless solution for a small flat. Perfect wireless solution for a small flat.

Gigaset A420A Twin DECT Cordless Phone with Answer Machine – Black : When listening to messages it says. The telephone often has audible distortion during a call and on the answerphone making it hard to hear, this is annoying. When listening to messages it says: “you have one new message, message one”, this becomes repetitive and irritating.

    1. Certainly usable good for the price – but rather muddled setup, over-featured – and a little quirky. . This internal cordless phone is very unlike any i have used before. Setting up was a very complicated rigmarole. I’m judging this product against several types of cordless i have used at home in the last 20 years. The instruction book is very badly planned and sections keep referring to other pages and then when you turn to the detailed section there’s only safety nagging, little helpful info and it refers you back to the page from where you were just sent. Answer-phone is fairly basic and works pretty well. One thing missing from the design is the ability to get a dial-tone by pressing the green receiver button – it only allows input of the number first and then it connects to the line at the point of dialling the number. The audio volume on the handset is weak and even with it set to max level it’s still difficult to hear. I don’t know if it has a hearing-aid friendly t-loop facility for those who need a bit more boost in the sound. The quality of the sound isn’t as good as i expected for a digital phone.

  7. The one main thing that i like is the built in answer machine which is great, however i feel this is one of those you get what you pay for phones as the battery and sound sometimes can be an issue. However it has served ourselves well so its a case of accept the faults as the benefits out-weigh the flawspros – fits well in the handle, sits well in the cradle, easy to use, multiple options – contacts, alarm, answering machinecons -battery power can drain too fast, sometimes calls are too quiet even on maximum volume and crackles too (phone services say no fault on the line.
