Gigaset SL450A GO Home Phone: Stylish, Functional and Intelligent

Gigaset recently launched a high performing and exceptionally contemporary home phone - the SL450A GO. The stylish home phone combines intelligent design with functionality. We have been testing it out over the past few weeks and are now ready to share our thoughts with you.


The Gigaset SL450A box contains the following:
  • 1 handset (battery included)
  • 1 base station
  • 1 charging cradle for handset with power adapter
  • 1 power adapter for the base station
  • 1 phone cable
  • 1 LAN cable
  • 1 belt clip
  • 1 user guide

Setting up the handset

The setup is very simple and does not take more than a few minutes. Insert the battery into the handset and charge it fully prior to the first use. Connect the base station to the mains power supply and to the fixed line network using the cables provided. You are now ready to make and receive calls. If you want to use Internet Telephony or access the internet or your home network, then you need to connect to the internet by linking the base station to the router. To make use of Gigaset GO functions you will need to install apps on your smartphone. The user guide that comes in the bundle explains everything.

Let's now take a look at the appearance and build of the phone. The phone has a very stylish aluminium frame and comes with a large, 2.4 inch TFT colour display. The battery cover (back) has a sort of matte black finish. The charging cradle colour matches the phone and is lightweight but well-built. The base station is all black and has a paging key that helps you locate the handset. There are no sharp edges on the handset and it is beautifully crafted to fit perfectly and ergonomically in the hand. It is a very stylish and compact phone.

Some key features of the SL450A GO

  • You can use it over an analogue (fixed) network or IP-based connection (internet telephony)
  • Connect to a PC via micro USB or Bluetooth 2.0 (Windows and Mac operating systems) : This feature allows you to communicate wirelessly with other devices on your home network that use this technology (e.g. your smartphone or laptop). You can use Bluetooth to exchange directory entries on your smartphone and the home phone.
  • Headset connection by Bluetooth 2.0 or cable
  • Call display with picture: In addition to ringtones you can use images as caller id pictures. The phone has a pre-set bunch of images but you can download further images from your PC if your PC and the Gigaset phone have been synced. You can do this quickly and easily using the Gigaset QuickSync program which is free to download from the Gigaset website.
  • Indoor range of 50m and outdoor range of 300m.
  • Alarm function: Once you have set the date and time during the initial setup of the phone, you can activate the alarm clock. The alarm sounds for 1 minute and if no key is pressed it will be repeated after 5 minutes. Post the second repetition the alarm clock is deactivated for 24 hours.
  • 500 phonebook contacts: You can store up to 500 contacts in the address book with three telephone numbers each. This can be done either by adding the entries or by copying contact details from your PC address book to the handset directory.
Gigaset SL450A GO Home Phone

In addition to the impressive features listed above, the Gigaset GO phone also include a range of functions that makes them more advanced and futuristic. My favourite feature is the ability to make calls between Gigaset GO phones across the world totally free of charge (over a Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) connection). This is done via Gigaset.net. The phone can also display online service information like weather tickers which is another useful feature as I tend to keep checking BBC Weather website very frequently. There are many other features and the list is constantly updated. You can check out the latest at http://www.gigaset.com/go

I hate cold callers trying to sell me internet packages or offering me loans that I do not need. With the Gigaset SL450A's  built-in nuisance call blocking technology, you can bid bye-bye to cold callers. 

Families with babies will find the 'Baby Monitor' feature of the phone very useful. When the baby monitor is turned on, a destination number (which you need to enter while setting it up) is called as soon as noise levels in the vicinity of the handset go beyond the defined noise level. The alarm to the destination number lasts for around 90 seconds. There is a 'Two Way Talk' feature that allows you to answer the alarm. The same feature turns on the loudspeaker on the handset which is located in your baby's room. Activating and de-activating the baby alarm is very easy and you can even deactivate the alarm remotely.

  17. I would keep as a home phone because:- Our home phone is not reliable
    its always getting lost
    it old and needs charging
    and breaks down quite a lot

    when It rings its very quiet
    and we never hear it sound
    so it never gets answered
    we need a new phone that's loud

    The Kids and their dad love to chat
    they can talk for a little while
    then the battery goes flat

    Their Dad always rings them
    when he is at work.
    Guess what? they cant hear him
    so it's missed calls and an answer machine
    he sounds like Captain Kirk
