Pros- The sound quality is good. The style is sleek. Having a phone ready (corded) if the power is out is a good thing, too. Transferring the phone book is fairly effortless, but time consuming. The DECT 6.0 phone operates in the ~1.9 GHz range so it will never interfere with a 2.4 GHz wireless network like my Netgear 2.4 GHz Gamerlounge Wireless-G router at home. Set-up was easy and the cordless phones only need 7 hours to fully charge out of the box. The rechargeable batteries (NiMH AAA) are cheaper to replace than other phones with batttery packs. Cons- The corded phone somtimes sound shaky after pick-up, but it usually straightens out. The ringtones are basic and sond like variances of a regular phone ring. Price is kinda high, but it's worth it for 3 phones.
This is a very nice looking phone set. Cordless handpieces are lightweight and well built. The displays are large and clear. The phones have a nice pleasant ring tone. Retrieving messages is simple. I have noticed a hissing/buzzing sound when using the cordless handpieces, which is a little disappointing (since I was really looking forward to clear reception). I'm going to contact my phone service provider (ATT) to see if the hissing/buzzing sound is an issue with their service (and not the phones). If my phone service provider resolves the hissing/buzzing issue, I'm certainly keeping this phone set. Anyways, I'm keeping the box and receipt in case the hissing/buzzing sound eventually gets to me and I should decide to return this phone set back to Walmart.
Also, my previous phone set was a VTech cordless set (also purchased at Walmart). This Panasonic set is much better than the VTech. I do not recommend the VTech at all, since the reception was not clear (you could barely hear the voice on the other line). Avoid the VTechs!
Exactly what we were looking for! Corded phone for use in power outages and two cordless sets for convenience! Exceptional clarity, easy to use and a great value price. Couldn't be more pleased!
crystal clear sound, very little interference if any at all, a cordless phone that works the way it's supposed to.
Good feeling, easy operating, large readout, interesting variety of ring tones, and good clarity for talking/listening on the speaker phone handsets. The base unit is decent but the voice is slightly muddled. Listening to messages is a snap and it has a very detailed display. It would be nice to be able to change the display lighting to another color other than orange however - but that is personal taste. Speakerphone is clear and works very well. I haven't fully tested reception distance from base unit but so far, it's been quite good at 50 yards outside the house. All-in-all, a very good deal.
This is the best phone I've ever had. I LOVE the intercom feature and I also loved that the cordless phones were already pre-registered to the base unit so all I had to do was plug them into the rooms I wanted extra phones in and let them charge for 7 hours. The range on the cordless phones are good. The last cordless phone I had wouldn't work in the bedroom furthest from the base unit but this one works crystal clear. It exceeded my expectations.
We really like how, from the cordless sets you can retrieve your messages and even listen/screen as message is being left. My only disappointment is I would have liked to have been able to record our own message, giving the personal touch to callers that also allows them to know if they called the correct party. I did recommend this phone to my Mom, but with only 1 cordless and the corded. Overall, I would recommend this model to everyone. Clarity in the connection, along with the features is excellent. Hopefully, this phone will last longer than the last 4 in 4 yrs. At least this one has convenient features for us.
My daughter and I live together and are both involved in seperate business's and were spending a lot of time fiielding each others calls. We were pleased beyond our expectations on how this phone system solved our problem along with the many other features which enable each of us to access and manage our calls from the two cordless satalite phones. The display panels are very readable on all 3 phones and caller ID use is improved. The base phone corded to the base means we are not always misplacing the base phone. This system is over the top and has saved us a lot of time and tension. We continue to be enthused about it.
I absolutely love this phone. The desktop I wish the receiver was a little larger to rest on my shoulder but other than that, the desktop is wonderful. I can switch from handset to speaker phone without the person I'm speaking to ever knowing. Now the cordless phones are a dream come true. I put them to the test....I stayed on the phone, literally for 13 hours. It was a test on just one cordless. The cordless never died and still had one bar left. Now without using it as much, the phone stays charged for at least 4 days off the charger. I love that the cordless and an option for speaker and also to attach a headset. I don't even have to hold the cordless. The manual has many other options that I haven't explored yet. If you want a really great phone, buy this one.
I already had a 2.5 GHZ Panasonic phone that interfered with wireless networking. This DECT 6.0 model solved that problem completely. Using rechargeable NIMH AA batteries, the handsets will last 5 or 6 days before you have to put them back onto the charging base, but you get two of these, so you can just leave 'em on all the time. The 100 # (memory) handsets can COPY phone numbers to the main base unit, which can copy back to either handset. The speakerphone is loud and clear. The LCD text is large and easy to read. The menu system is not as hard to use as other reviewers think--you get used to it in about 20 minutes. Finding names and calling from your contact list is also quick and easy! I can't find anything to complain about. I think this system is exactly what I wanted.
I have had this phone for awhile now and I LOVE IT!!! the "silent mode" is a great feature for me and it is very nice to be able to set it to silent during my sleeping hours!! great buy and the fact that is expandable is AWSOME!!!!!!!!!
We replaced our old phones with this set because we couldn't hear or be heard from the old ones anymore, even with a dsl filter. These work great, can hear very clearly, both ways, have a corded line to work even when the power is out, and work with regular AA batteries.
I need to have a corded landline along with cordless extensions because we are in the country and have power outages occur (when cordless won't work). This phone set meets my expectations and was ok priced and is easy to use. I wish I could find a landline with cordless extensions that does not have the answering machine and stuff (as I use phone company voice mail) but I didn't know this set also tells me when I have a voice mail!
I love this phone set! A couple of months ago, I purchased a set of GE cordless phones and did I ever regret that. They were terrible in every way. The Panasonic phones are great! Great sound quality, nice ring tones, call blocking, etc.! They cost a bit more than the other phones I had, but were not too expensive. Sometimes, you get what you pay for and if you want better quality, you have to pay a bit more. I recommend this phone set!
After buying two AT&T phones, both of which failed with in months and sounded terrible from the beginning, it was a pleasure to buy a phone that actually worked like I wanted it to. I would recommend buyign this phone.
I recently purchased these phones and I really love them! They stay charged great and the sound is also great! My husband loves the intercom feature on the phone and I do too..I can call his phone with mine to tell him to come inside when he's out in his barn! The only wierd thing is that the time on the phones keep jumping up an hour throughout the day.. which is easy to fix but theres no way to stop it from happening? But who cares--phones are cool!
it is garte the ancering machine is fabulis. when you add a number to one hand set it is also put in the phone book on the other units.
I liked the idea of having a corded landline along with cordless extensions because cordless extensions will not work during power outages. This product meets my expectations and was well priced and is easy to use.
I am extremely pleased with this telephone system as I have always been with other Panasonic products. It is so much better than the system I had before. I especially like the light on the caller id and the large clear print on it also.
Takes standard AAA niMh batteries. Very good battery life. You'll never have to buy expensive replacement battery packs. Range is excellent. I have yet to come across static or trouble hearing someone. The size of the phone is another important feature. It feels more natural. More like a home phone and not a cell phone. My only complaint would be the limited ring tones, but pretty easy to oversee with everything else that is right with this phone.
