Review by Stewart Haynes (Posted on 02/01/2015)
The Amplicom PowerTel68 Plus Big Button Amplified corded Phone with Answerphone, is not for my own personal use, it was ordered for my elderly sister, who is hard of hearing and with poor eye sight, I did check out various phones, this model had all that I was looking for, extra large buttons, with loud volume and ringer tones, it was easy to set up and she seems very happy with the phone, a satisfied customer.

Review by David White (Posted on 01/01/2014)
Tel68 Plus is well designed and so simple that my mother who is 97 and lives alone, was able to operate it with little instruction. I have to say that " hearingdirect" response and support equals that of the product quality. Congratulations for great service and product

Review by Paul Brown (Posted on 10/04/2012)
I received this hard of hearing phone a couple of weeks ago and it is a real delight to have. Not only do the buttons light up green in the dark. They have big buttons which helps my wife as she dislikes the kind of buttons you get on mobiles. It also has an answer machine and a day/date reminder. Numbers to family and friends can be saved, it doesn't have to be f&f, it can be anyone. There are three buttons above the keypad where you can put a picture of the person's number you have saved. Press this and the number is dialled instantly. This is a must have phone even if you are not deaf/hard of hearing as the reception is clear and you don't even have to pick up the phone to talk. You can use the speaker button. I think the rating of this phone has got to be a five but if the rating was to be higher and because my wife has a problem hearing on the phone and hasn't made one complaint since we received it, I would personally give it a 10/10.

We bought this phone for my partner's 94 year old mother & it has improved her experience of telephone calls considerably , thank you for your good service & communication . I would give the apparatus a score of 4 ( 1 mark deducted for the somewhat harsh tone ) .In all other respects , it was perfect .

Review by Gillian Martindale (Posted on 07/02/2012)
This is a review for a Amplicom PowerTel 68 Plus Big Button Amplified Phone and I would have to give the process a 5 as there were no issues with the ordering on line, the delivery or the product. The phone was easy to set up and easy for my 91 year old mother to use. She can hear the people talking on the phone much better now with the hearing amplifier and the picture ‘hot key’ are a real bonus for her to use.

Review by P Mitchell (Posted on 21/03/2011)
My order was received 24 hours after I placed the order so I was very pleased. (5) for that Product is good but when the volume is increased there is a lot of crackling so it doesn’t really help as much as I had thought. Easy to use though so overall a score of 3-4
