What sets this phone apart is the large, backlit, tiltable display. Why every landline phone doesn't have a display this nice is beyond me. Most everything else about the phone is typical, but it does add further functions to help those of us who are growing older:
* A large keypad for easy dialing
* A four-setting equalizer function to tweak sound
* "Audio Assist" to temporarily boost receiver volume
* Relatively intuitive functions that can be set up easily
That said, one of the failings of this phone is that--for all its audio-altering capabilities--it does not have a rich sound compared to a cheaper AT&T phone I used to own. This seems odd given this phone's equalizer and Audio Assist functions, but the duller sound quality is obvious in comparison. Another quirk is the dial-back feature; there seems to be no way to program it to add a "1" automatically when dialing outside a set of local area codes, reducing the function's usefulness.
If all those sound bells and whistles had worked as advertised, this could have been a five-star phone. As it is, it's okay, but that still makes it better than many phones out there. And did I mention how great the display is?
UPDATE, Nov. 2016: Some have noted that bits of the display LCD start to fail, and ultimately, the whole display becomes illegible or completely blank. I have removed a star from the review for that reason. This progressive failure started in my unit about three years after purchase. That's ridiculous, honestly. Too many crappy small appliances and electronics nowadays.
UPDATE October 2014: After two years of trouble-free service a couple vertical lines on the LCD display stopped working -- each vertical line is only about 1/4 of a text letter wide so the affected text characters are still easily legible. All other phone functions are working well. I intend to replace with the same unit when the time comes, even with the minor display issue after two years this unit is still a 'best buy' IMO.
ORIGINAL REVIEW August 2012:
I purchased my AT&T CL4940 locally because I needed a that-day replacement for a long-time-in-service Nortel.
I'm writing this review based on initial quality as I have only owned the phone for 24 hours. Thus far I am impressed by:
1. Sound quality through both the handset and speaker. This is adjustable with a 4 setting equalizer, I'm using the default 'Natural' setting, there are two treble boost settings and one bass boost setting available.
2. Volume available through both handset and speaker is individually adjustable and can be made very loud on the highest settings.
3. Answering machine ease of operation.
4. Total message+announcement recording time of 25 minutes -- these days that's good, many answering machines have less than 15 minutes of audio storage. 60 minutes is still the target amount for manufacturers in my opinion -- the problem is that like most answering machines, this one will stop taking messages once the memory is full -- and a busy business day or some political robocalls can fill things up pretty fast and shut the system down.
5. Good human interface -- big buttons, readable and backlit display, clealy labled control buttons -- you do still need to look at the manual just a bit to see how the menu and control system is set up but it's about as simple as it can be made, IMO.
The one disadvantage is the index in the user manual which has way too few entries -- I downloaded the .pdf version of the manual just to search for info on the 'equalizer' (it can only be set while you are listening to something) -- and how to reset the 'missed calls' counter (press and hold the CANCEL button). Other than the lack of a complete index, the user manual is clear and explanatory.
At the time of this review there are two 2-rated reviews. The one mentioning the need for a DSL filter if you have DSL service applies to most phones and fax machines. Although I did not try the included wall mounting bracket, looking at it I would agree that this phone is not well suited for wall mounting -- I don't know of any larger desktop type phones that include an answering machine that are.
Overall I give this phone high marks for design, execution, and value, with durability being the unknown factor.
The text of the LCD display is large and easy to read. Love the choice of orange for the display backlighting - much easier on the eyes than the ubiquitous harsh blue you see everywhere. But I don't like that the model number is displayed when the phone is not in use...kind of pointless. The orange backlighting is usually off, but turns on when someone is calling (but turns off after a minute or two into the call), when the receiver is lifted, or any button is pressed. Its contrast is adjustable in 4 levels. However its actual brightness is not adjustable and is a bit dim for daytime environments - it's not as bright and clear as it looks in the product pic. Hopefully the display won't fail after a few years as others have experienced, and like my previous AT&T office phone did.
The built-in answering machine works well and is not difficult to learn to use. The default message is a pre-recorded: "Hello - please leave a message after the tone" in a male voice. Or you can record your own message for incoming callers. Love that the play/stop button glows in flashing red to indicate a new message.
Unlike some office phones, the angle that the phone sits at is not adjustable, and is at a pretty low angle. A higher sitting angle would be more comfortable for dialing. But the angle of the display is adjustable, and most people will have it angled upward a bit. For the ringer, there are 4 volume levels plus off - but even the lowest setting is quite loud. This phone is single-line only, and there isn't a set of dedicated buttons and labels for numbers you call often (one-touch dialing). But you can store numbers in the directory, assign a name to each one, and dial from there. Lastly, there is no 'hold' button to allow you to put the handset down and continue the call on another phone on the same line. If you don't need these features, this phone will work well in an office too.
