  • This was easy to set up, the message playback is of good quality and at this price, very good value

  • I'm going to give 5 stars because this is such a good value.
  • The answering device is very convenient and is a great value
  • Everything else worked just fine, but the recorded messages are so fuzzy with static as to be impossible to understand, whether listening on the external speaker or when calling in from a different line.

Reviews around advertise (4.58 of 5)

  • What can you purchase these days for UNDER 20 dollars that actually WORKS as advertised and is of real substance? Right!Almost nothing...except this little answering machine
  • Two minor issues I noticed right away were (1) the voice playback on the 1740 is not as clear as on the 1739, and (2) the LED counter on the 1740 is not as large or bright as the 1739.
  • Now no more worries as to who is calling
  • Even AT & T support could not get it to record messages
  • I can't really say that it works as advertised as I have not used all of the features and never will.

Reviews around feature (3.79 of 5)

  • If you're reading this AT&T...PLEASE think about the ridiculous lack of consideration that was made by leaving out this design feature!!In all my years of using answering machine, starting in the 1970's, I have NEVER had a machine that lacked this feature
  • The most annoying feature is the loud crackling on the messages
  • I really like the caller ID feature, except that it calls out the phone number a little too quickly
  • Because of this machine I was able to get rid of voice mail and all the other extra spendy features on my landline, so I am saving 50% a month ($25) on my phone bill
  • But it has one extremely annoying design defect that causes me to deduct two stars: you CANNOT defeat the call screening feature.

Reviews around unit (3.61 of 5)

  • +, this unit plugged in between the wall and my defective unit.
  • But the unit started failing within about 2 months, with unclear messages on playback.
  • this unit was purchased for my mother and she loved how easy it was to open, set up and operate.
  • I highly recommend this unit to anyone who needs a simple easy to use answering machine.

Reviews around quality (3.50 of 5)

  • It is completely digital, and still the sound quality is worst than the Old tape recorders.
  • A really good quality, simple to use answering machine for the money.
  • I was not happy with this unit because I thought the sound quality was poor
  • Excellent price, quality & sound, easy to use, instructions to install are clear ..will recommend to others
  • It literally does everything advertised (at least so far), but the quality of sound is so abysmal, it is embarrassing

Reviews around sound (3.33 of 5)

  • And smack the engineer who designed a modern digital system and incorporated the disruptive sound of an '80s answering machine
  • Love it great answering machine matches room well, very simple easy to use great for my business, great sound
  • It does exactly what I need it to do, has clear sound, is easy to use, and was pretty easy to set up.
  • This was so easy to set up, easy to use and clear sound at a great price.
  • It developed a problem where it showed one message on display but when I hit the button to listen to it the only sound was the very quiet white noise from an open input circuit to an amplifier.

Reviews around message (3.20 of 5)

  • The messages now come through loud and clear and it's easy enough for her to use.
  • It was easy to set up, messages are clear and it was inexpensive
  • It's very easy to use, and the volume is good and messages are clear and easy to hear.
  • Worked great the first month or two, but now recorded incoming messages have so much static it's almost impossible to tell who's calling much less understand the message.
  • I am usually not available when this machine answers the phone, so I don't hear how loud the messages are when being recorded hence the need for the machine in the first place

Reviews around crackle (2.71 of 5)

  • After the person hangs up, the machine keeps the phone as "unhooked" and recording louder crackling until the "off the hook sound" beeps twice and then the machine finally disconnects
  • The most annoying feature is the loud crackling on the messages
  • Two minor issues I noticed right away were (1) the voice playback on the 1740 is not as clear as on the 1739, and (2) the LED counter on the 1740 is not as large or bright as the 1739.
  • Everything else worked just fine, but the recorded messages are so fuzzy with static as to be impossible to understand, whether listening on the external speaker or when calling in from a different line.
  • However, if you plan on using it as a screening device, the loud crackling is nerve wrecking.

Reviews around bite (2.33 of 5)

  • its works good and did not cost a bundle on a b get this worth it not a waste of money tvm kn
  • Even AT & T support could not get it to record messages
  • The setup is all voice driven and a bit slower to set up but for this price how can you complain?
  • No one sounds like themselves, and messages are a bit hard to understand.
  • great small footprint, Perhaps a bit behind the times, but when you are used to an answering machine this is perfect.

Reviews around power (1.95 of 5)

  • Also I don't like the bright red power-on light that overwhelms the number indicator when you glance at it from a distance - poor human engineering
  • Please contact me immediatelyso we can arrange an other power supply or a refund
  • so if you lose power you need to remember to reprogram the settings as it may default to machine being
  • If I do lose power and need to reset the clock, it won't take any time at all.
  • Only wish it would retain the time/date (as advertised) when power was lost.

Reviews around people (1.87 of 5)

  • Helpful and smal \l.
  • We live in a small town and people still use our home number but during an election year it's been wonderful!!!
  • My last phone machine, which is at least 20 years old, was an analog one that cost $40, but after three people recently told me the machine hung up on them before they could leave a message, I decided I had better get a new machine
  • and somehow my grandmother keeps putting this into spanish and people think its the wrong number when they call, and she doesnt hear the beeping (its not loud enough
  • It is easy to use and I like that it repeats the callers phone number as many times people say it so fast you can't get it without listening to the message over an over.
