ClearSounds ANS3000 Digital Amplified Answering Machine
The ANS3000 comes with 30 minutes of record time and playback can be amplified for clarity. The machine allows for you to record two outgoing messages and it even has two pre-recorded versions if you'd rather use one of those instead. User-friendly, this machine has big, clearly labeled buttons that do most basic functions with just one touch. Each message has time/date stamp and you can access all of them remotely as well.
The unit lets you screen calls and playback is clear, although in comparison the sound was better on some of the other picks on our list. It also features memo recording, not offered by any other pick on our list, allowing you to record messages for others at duration of up to three minutes long.
