Siemens Gigaset SL780 Quint Cordless Phone meet the highest standards regarding design, technology and environmental friendliness. A unique design concept using solid metal underscores the high quality of the handset and charging cradle. Special emphasis was placed on ease of use: Users can move through the newly designed menu system with its intuitive icons using a central 5-way navigation key (four direction keys plus a middle key) on the handset. Metal dome key technology with its clear pressure point gives a completely new feel. Ideal legibility is ensured by the large TFT QVGA color display with 256,000 colors (240 x 320 pixels). In addition, both phones offer excellent sound quality even when used in full-duplex handsfree mode. If desired, users can also mute the phones and define VIP users. When the latter call, an acoustic signal is emitted despite the fact that the phone is muted.All contacts under control To enable efficient contact management, the Gigaset SL780 have a large address book, offering space for up to 500 entries in the vCard format. Thanks to the Gigaset QuickSync software, data can easily be synchronized with a PC (Microsoft Outlook) via the supplied mini-USB cable or Bluetooth. Environmentally-friendly and miserly with energy The Siemens Gigasets SL780 are equipped with cutting-edge ECO technology and have an energy-saving power supply that consumes up to 60 percent less electricity than conventional phones. In addition, energy can be saved in the ECO mode, which cuts transmitting power by 80 percent during calls. And with the aid of the new ECO mode Plus, transmitting power is shut off completely in standby and recharging mode and only reactivated when a call is received or made. Future-proof and expandable To make sure they are always up-to-date, the Gigaset SL780 offer a simple means of updating their software or adding functions via the Internet.

The phones can also be combined with the Gigaset HC450 intercom.
