Customer Review

There is now therefore in front of me, the OPIS 60s Cable Retro phone in black. Very close to the originals of the 60s, it wants to be - whether it creates that I want to clarify a brief summary:

+ Design: Yes, the good old days looked definitely. The appearance fits 100%, only the technology inside is likely to reflect the current state of the art, which is totally okay. The phone acts somewhat higher than indicated by the images.

+ Mechanical bell: Unmistakable and also very close to the original. By design, the volume can not be regulated, but that did not bother me.

Engineering: There is a selector switch for pulse / tone dialing. Especially recent telephone systems no longer support the old pulse dialing. So also my FRITZ! Box 7390, at which I operate the phone. Asked Short to tone dialing and everything works perfectly. Even a redial there - I personally do not use them because it's fun vigorously swinging the dial :)

+ Weight: Especially the listener of weight, feels perfect. Even with the ergonomics there is absolutely nothing to complain about. Everything fits and works thanks to the weight of very high quality in spite of plastic. The body should like to establish in my view a drink, anyway (and also because of the rubber feet) slipped nothing, even in tense handset cord. The fork could be a little more compact, the handset launched "floating" slightly.

o Material: Sure, plastic is the material of our time. However, I would like to see (also at an additional cost) a different material. The glossy plastic is still very scratch prone, already unpacking small scratches were visible. Who still knows the W48 Bakelite, know what I'm talking about here. Possibly would help here, that would be much less prone to fingerprints a matte plastic.

o Handset cord: This is indeed fine, but this was not nice clean shot. I'm doing me hard here that describe who it looks, knows what I mean. Also, I would hope that the handset cord is detachable also on the handset itself. First, it would facilitate an exchange clearly in an emergency, and secondly it could also significantly lighter "unravel". Everyone knows I think the problem is that after a few phone calls only one skein hanging out down there.

- Dial: For a phone that makes the claim, very close to the original may be the dial of course not missing. This principle also works very well, but I find the acoustics selbiger atrocious. Of course, one is pleased with acoustic feedback, which was formerly too. Here rattles and ratchets it but clearly too loud, what the quality feel but very turbid. This has more of what a toy phone for children. Too bad.

Conclusion: The Opis 60s Cable fun - only Grandma Crocheted still missing :) - room for improvement remains as described anyway. Further suggestion: A DECT variant would class. So you would be much more flexible with regard to the installation, but you would need only a current and not the same as a telephone line near the phone.
