Gigaset SL910A 3 : More than just a phone

Great design and quality, lacks mac os compatibility. I’ve enjoyed the siemens gigaset series 78h but have been disappointed with the quick sync compatibility with the latest mac os (mountain lion and mavericks) rendering the usb sync capability so critical to address book management. Tech support reports that siemens’ bluetooth is also not compatible with mac so both avenues of connectivity are off-line. No word from siemens as to when they will get the sync issue sorted out. I love the quality, design,touch screen, menu system and potential. I’m just sorry as a mac oriented user these compatibility issues remain unresolved and no idea when they will be addressed.

A friend of mine recommended this phone to me after i decorated my house and i have to say i’m so glad they did. It looks fantastic as a digi photo frame and looks like a hi-tech accessory making it more fun than standard phones. It’s easy to use and i’m loving using the additional features.

Like a lot of people i hesitated for a long time because of the price of this unit,but let me say this phone is brilliant. It looks great,its feels great and it is easy to use. (you have to give yourself a little while to get your head around any new phone)i am a bit of an ‘gadget man’according to my family but over the years we have had many different cordless phones but this gigaset is head and shoulders above any of those.My advice is, hesitate no longer, go and buy one you will not regret iti have also bought the siemens gaigaset clip which gives you handsfree conversations. If you are thinking of buying this phone i recomend a look at this clip, even my wife cannot stop saying how great it isfinally and importantly i bought from amazon which once again has given me great service and i always feel secure with them if anything should go wrong.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Returned needed to be a computer wiz to down load
  • slick and looks well cool
  • Initially not what one expects, but with practise, it is excellent

Had a lot of ‘phones in the last fifteen years since my old panasonic died and all including panasonic, doro and gigaset have been lacking , that is to now. This ‘phone is easy to set up and touch screen works well unless fingers greasy, don’t need a second phone as take this one up at night and it doubles as an alarm clock which is easy to turn off without specs on in the morning. Battery amazing, sound both ways crystal clear as is the writing on the screen, black type face on white, not the usual dim orange with digital type face. Yes it’s a lot of cash but worth every penny and reassuringly heavy with real chromed metal making up forty percent of the base and handset and the big bonus is it says it’s made in germany on the back, not china.

I chose this sl910a instead of the newer sl930a mainly because it has a simpler interface. The newer phone has an android ice-cream operating system, and as i also have a mobile, i don’t need my office phone to do be able to do all the fancy stuff my mobile can. Also the newer sl930a is at least £180i have replaced my existing office phones with this. It is smaller, neater and much easier to use than all my old desk phones. It has a decent range, at least as far as advertised: 50m in a building. Overall i love it, so easy to use as a telephone.

    However there is a massive price tag for this. . It is a beautiful home landline telephone , with all the latest bells and whistles. Tons of features over and above a normal landline tel. But remeber it is not in the realm of a “mobile phone” realm yet. So all in all good but pricey .

    Good size and works more like a mobile phone, but seems to need a lot of charging.

    1. Nice heavy metal chromed finish to the phone and base. Excellent sound quality lots of functions. Some reviewers have said it’s slow to react and yes, if you compare it to a £700+ smart mobile phone of course it is. But at this price as a house phone it’s incredible.

  4. Looks great and is great to use except that they still haven’t fully sorted the touch screen issues despite updates. The sound is excellent and the functions all work really well. The answerphone sound is brilliant.
