    Hey guys, looking for a new home phone, with at least 2 handsets for around £100, anybody got any ideas?

    Had a look at the latest BT Calypso and Esprit phones, but not 100% sure that they justify their price tags.

    was looking for a DECT home phone too, managed to narrow it down to 2 models

    MagicBox touch phone

    Binatone X1


    both are a bit of style over content but they do look nice

    Hmmm, we had a Binatone before, and it was that bad that it went back.

    So already had that one knocked off the list :D

    Are the MagicBox ones any good?

    Have always gone with BT synergy & never had any problems, Try these http://www.shop.bt.com/invt/cay209 bargain as I paid about £150 for just a twin set.

    Just noticed they have the Twin set for only £79.99 thats half what I paid last year.

    After our experience with phillips phones I can't really recommend them.
    Just got panasonic, seem better build quality, just has a couple of features I don't like though.

    Yeah, I tend to stay away from Phillips stuff, tend to find it breaks easily. At the moment we have a BT Synergy trio set, but the base unit is slowly dying :( Could well get another one :p
