is a Panasonic with a digital messaging system, and it uses a roll of ribbon to print onto plain paper. It never misses a beat, the ribbon lasts for ages, and the messaging system has more options than you can shake a stick at.
There's a phone handset, and the screen displays the inbound caller's number. The personal number store is huge, and there's a scroll wheel so you can shuffle back and forth through the messages.
It cost a bit more than £100, but has been worth every penny of that. I looked at cheaper machines, but they just didn't measure up. In the end I think you appreciate the extra quality long after you've forgotten about paying a bit extra.
The model number is KX-FP320 by the way, but I'm sure there's at least one later model by now - it's about 18 months old.
