sometimes big buttons don't work real pain
Well built, good sound quality, and stylish. but not too good for older folk to set up without assistance. Odd annoying features, like no dial tone on pick-up, you have to make a long press on the green button to get one. Loud sound facilities very good, but ring tones somewhat less so. Instruction book rather hard work, but then there are so many options, maybe too many. I think it will suite us fine in time, but it's been fairly hard work setting it up. In summary, it works well enough, but it is rather complicated to set up.
Yet to set to work ~ setting it up is a task. There is a comprehensive user guide / manual ~ 60 pages, in english which is a blessing. Could be simpler if all one needs is a phone / answering machine. The phone is 'sophisticated' ~ a definition of which is ..... 'unnecessarily complicated.'
Phones do not work with power outage (safety issue), so we had to keep a standard phone. If you pickup a call on the standard phone the E560A states missed call. The ring tones are not very good most are music, we have music on in the house most of the time, so they are no use to us. All I wanted was a normal telephone ring tone. I can not check that there is a dialing tone by just pressing the green button like normal phones. The only reason to keep the phones is the sound volume and quality, we put up with the other issues. 230 volt power supplies, we will see how long they last, normally buy only items with 240 volt, as they last.
Nice phone with some useful features, very easy to set up, the emergency feature and quick dial buttons are very convenient. Answering the phone by just picking it up was also useful and not having to search for a button to push if your vision is not so good. All in all very pleased with the purchase.
