Wansa VT 9010 – Review

Most people in Kuwait are familiar with the ‘Wansa’ brand thanks to heavy marketing by Alghanim Electronics. Although Wansa is a relatively new entrant in the home electronics market it seems to have captured a significant market share with its reasonable pricing and long feature list. Why am I saying all this ?? Well, for the past decade or more cordless phones in our household were always Panasonic. Over the years we’ve used a lot of different models and never really thought of straying from it… until now.

Meet the Wansa VT 9010 cordless telephone. I was kinda skeptical about the Wansa brand and thats why I’m writing this review almost 6 months after I bought the phone..coz I expected it to go bust in a month. Guess I was wrong !

What I like:
. Slim and sexy design
. Can sync more than one handset to a single base unit
. 300+ contacts phone book
. Good menu and interface
. Great sound quality and loud speakerphone
. Ni-MH batteries instead of Ni-Cad
. Reasonable price

What I dont like
. High glossy body that attracts fingerprints and scratches easily
. Doesnt have a ‘Flash option’ to quickly disconnect the line
. Messed up text input system and no T-9 dictionary or similar option

There’s one with an answering machine built-in which is around 18KD while this model is 12KD

  1. I have very bad experience with WANSA product. I bought a Twin Tub washer about a year ago. After some time its spinner drum is broken. The material is very cheap. Then the water started leaking it is on wash. I made the complaint, the company guy came and booked it for repair. Ater one and half week of the day they took the machine for repair, I was told that spare parts are not available. So machine was returned to me without repair. I checked with some friends who do repair for washing machines. I came to know that it is well known problem with WANSA machines that company do not have spare parts. I learned a lesson not to buy WANSA products again. I hope you do not make this mistake.

  2. I bought a Wansa flat screen TV two years ago and it works great. I really like it and it has a good picture. I can hook it up to my computer.
