Good amplification, useless flashing light

on 1/4/2010

I wanted a desktop phone with a large, backlit and easy-to-read caller ID display, an amplified handset and a bright, always-easy-to-see flashing light that would warn of incoming calls. This phone has all but the latter. It was intended for use in an area where the ringer would need to be turned off or extremely low (sleeping child's room nearby thus the flasher would be the only way to "ring"). Normally I wouldn't buy something like a multi-feature phone where my needs were "picky" without being able to touch/see it in a store before buying, but no common retail store carries this device. The caller ID is terrific as is the amplification in the handset. Even on its absolute lowest setting, the ringer is deafening so I have no choice but to turn it all the way off. My biggest complaint is the flashing light - it is a small set of LEDs that are essentially invisible. To see these lights flash when you have an incoming call, you'd have to be in an otherwise-darkened room and be looking almost straight at the phone. When punching the keys, they seem a little "loose" or a surprisingly-poor fit, but ultimately not a big deal and certainly easy to read. I'm late 40's with a mild hearing loss on one side and no vision problems at all; the amplification is a nice-to-have but what I really wanted was amplification, a HUGE flashing light AND a great caller-id, and got two of the three. A variable ringer (more finely-selectable, not merely off/low/high) would have been nice but definitely isn't there. Not a bad phone overall, even though fairly pricey. If I could have seen it in a store first I wouldn't have bought it because of the deal-breaker flashing light deficiency. Too much of a hassle to return it so I'll just live with it.

Product Overview

ST50 Amplified Speakerphone is a sophisticated amplified speakerphone that can digitally adjust frequency-specific volume levels so that any user, especially those working in extremely noisy environments, can comfortably and clearly hear a caller's voice. It boasts highly flexible sound settings: incoming voices may be amplified by up to 52 dB with extra amplification for high frequencies. This level of amplification has been tuned to more effectively restore the perception of many phonemic distinctions common in speech than competing models. As a convenience, personal volume amplification settings are automatically saved for later recall. Additionally, caller names and numbers are easily visible on the large 7.4 square inch backlit LCD display.
