Just bought a new house w/ lots of rooms & needed enough phones to cover the whole house so we bought this one (our last phone system was a panasonic too) because by the time we would get to the phone, the call would go to voicemail; can be upgraded to 6 if need be; just love the conference feature - great for contacting someone on the other side of the house or someone who is upstairs; the main base, to me looks really big in the picture but it is not that big once you get it out of the box which is nice because it doesnt take up alot of desk space; system came with clips so that if you want to you can clip the phone to your pants & go out into the yard to do your gardening or in my case, sit in my backyard swing which for me is about 30-40 ft from the house & it works great; it has big numbers & big buttons which is great for my hubby who has big fingers; am pleased that rechargeable batteries can be used; like the fact that each volume control is individual so even if the phone next to me doesn't ring, i can hear the one ringing in the other room; it talks to you & announces the caller, which takes some getting used; only the blinky light on top for messages is really noticeable or annoying, at least on the handset in our bedroom when you're trying to sleep so those messages i delete w/o listening to because the message will be on another handset; the backlite on the handset buttons is not bright enough to disturb sleep; not real thrilled that the system does not have a universal phone book (#'s must be saved in each phone) or voicemail (messages have to be deleted from each phone separately) but this would be my only complaint; overall i am quite pleased and believe it was well worth the $
