Philips CD275

Also Philips CD 275 on cheap sets with 45 euro. The handle in the packaging is but for now pleasantly surprised: the handset is made from solid plastic. After the turn, immediately catches the reddish pink key and display illumination in the eye.

Where are the buttons so brightly lit, that the display thus looks somewhat sallow. But, because the fact that at the CD275 the base with does not ring – although the answering machine has already installed a speaker is significantly.

What is annoying with time: in many memory accesses will appear for a short time a “Please wait” on the display. Other producers can do it much faster. Also Philips have can buy a notification LED, which immediately could be seen when entering the apartment, that somebody called. At least, that works out at the answering machine: the button on the base will flash if new messages have been received.

It’s a pity that one can not choose important phone numbers by long pressing a numeric button in other models in this price range. So, you must shimmy through the phone book. Positively, on the other hand: The keypad lock and ring tone mute can be activated by pressing and holding of the star or hash key.

In terms of radiation reduction, Philips has still not fully eco mode on offer, after all, reducing manual power is possible. There’s the good-sounding answering machine, either on the base or the handset to operate little to complain about.

Sound is Philips domain

In receive direction on the head, the CD275 at the TMOS and that voice quality achieved the best fit in the test field, also the measurements in handsfree mode were satisfactory. If however background sounds interfere with the hands-free, the CD275 problems and scars so close to a good pass in the sound. Who chats with listeners on the ear, gets best voice quality but as I said.
