I had a Clarity amplified phone which worked well but took up too much space on my bedside table. Thought I'd try this one and I love it. You do have to push a button to "boost" the sound but it's very conveniently located on the handset - easy to reach with one finger if you need it. I have only had it for one day and so far I like it the best of the 3 sound amplified phones I've tried even though it's the least expensive. Second, is the Clarity JV 35 and last is the Clear Sounds Model CSC48 which distorts the sound and is designed so that the handset easily comes "off the hook". I wish I had tried this one first.
Update 11/12: I only paid $17.44 for this when i bought it a couple of years ago - just came on line to buy one for a friend - the price sure has gone up. It's still a great phone though, just not a bargain any more.
