This digital answering machine has saved my life. I love the fact that there are three mailboxes (one for each member of my family).
I was so used to the old school mini tape machine, and I am not the best at embracing the phone future. I have to say this machine was easy to set up, and easy to operate.
What I do like about an answering machine versus voicemail is the fact that you can screen your calls. If you see a number you don't know, let them leave a message and listen to see if the call is worth taking.
This answering machine also allows you to record two outgoing messages. Not bad.
I am not so thrilled with the thirty minute memory capacity. Although I rarely have that many messages if you have a few saved, and then go on vacation you risk running out of memory space.
