I recently bought GE 29871GE3 digital answering machine after my old answering machine was broken(accidentally) beyond repair. But I must say this one is really better than the previous one, though I didn't have any complaints about the previous one when I was using it.
As far as the appearance and design are concerned, it is perhaps the most 'good looking' answering machine. It is very small in size at the dimensions of around 5 by 6 inches. It is very light in weight. It came in a combination of black and silver color unlike the other odd looking machines which come in complete white or complete black. It is very stylish in design and you can make it out from the picture. It really matches the color of my phone and it is perfect as it was said in the booklet as -' It is the perfect compliment to your phone'.
It is very simple to install and is more simple to use. Once fixed, it records the messages of the callers in digital quality. It records upto half an hour and the messages can be heard clearly, without any disturbances and in the desired volume with the help of volume control. We can keep a message if the caller have to know about where we are or if we want to tell the caller anything. It can record upto a minute for the out going messages and it is really a good length of time as we can say what we have to in that time. The time and date of the message can be viewed on the LED display. We can save any messages if we want and we can delete the unwanted messages. Everything can be done with just a click on the respective button as every command has a specific button for simple and fast use. Wheneven there is a new message we can know it with the help of indicator.
There is a complete instructions list in the booklet and we can find everything about the product in this booklet. We can find the specifications of the product and how to use it in detain in this booklet and so this is very easy to even first time users.
It is really a great answering machine and I can say this after using it for three months. I didn't have a single problem with it till now and I am finding it very useful.
