I've had the Friday / Fax / Answer Machine 2000 many years...since about 1998....YEP! bought it in OfficeMax it's been around for a long time.

I'm a Realtor & we also have a family owned landscape business.

The Friday has to be one of the BEST things we ever attached to our phone lines (we have 2).

It's not your typical ez plug n go cheap machine. The Friday is a mini VOICE MAIL record n notify machine...it takes a bit of reading before set up and then some time in a quiet area to set it up right...don't rush :)
It has 6 separate mail boxes...we use 3.

Each mail box has it own unique settings for leaving messages and retrieval locally or by remote via phone line.

It plugs into the electrical outlet and has a 9V backup battery that seems to last almost forever...I've only had to replace it once in all these years.

It can forward to my pager or my cell phone or my other office etc.

It doesn't lose settings in a power outage like many cheap machines.

After Hurricane Wilma 10/2005 we were without power for 3 1/2 weeks.
Friday worked perfect when the power came back on and all our messages were still stored...it was perfect again (keep tract of the battery during an extended power outage to keep things stored.

The model I have can operate on 1 phone line or 2 and switches call to my fax when needed. If you want it to page or call forward to somewhere else you have to have 2 SEPARATE phone line...not piggy back ring master.

It's worth the effort to set it up properly and for sure I wish Bogen would keep making this machine and also bring the price down so more people would buy it and realize the professional quality this machine is.

Have owned three Bogen Fridays decades ago. Great piece of equipment then, not a good value today. ORIGINAL manufacturer not in business for warranty service. Loaded with features. Awfully difficult, not intuitive, learning curve. Call forwarding requires TWO lines and is frustratingly slow. Not worth the trouble, given the low cost, speed, and ease of use of call forwarding from local tel. companies.
Caution: Built in battery for memory retention during power failure may not be functioning in some units due to expired shelf life.
Would recommend looking for a more current model from different manufacturers.

I purchased my "Friday" off ebay for a little under 100.00 dollars. The unit is heavy and packed with features. Although the unit is considered obsolote because it is no longer manufactured, I look at it as a well built unit with many features current machines do not, or can not include due to the cost factor. As another reviewer wrote it will take a few minutes to learn to program it. Once this is accomplished you will never have to do it again. I purchased my unit about ten years ago and then retired it for a much more modern unit. Unfortunately, my Pansonics, Sony, V-Tech unit all died and I have happily returned to this retro looking unit which has NEVER failed me.

20 years ago I had this and just got another on today! Almost couldn't remember the name Friday? Oh, I found out about it at a Paralegals office and now I am a paralegal/sales and the phones are going crazy! This is an excellent machine. It has 6 mail boxes the most of any that know of, cheaper than a professional answering service and you get to program all those boxes to direct clients to different information. It's Great!

This item did not meet my expectations. The call forwarding volume was very low and the answering machine did not hang up when someone choose not to leave a message. I don't recommend this!
