With all due respect to the previous reviewer, although I have only had this phone for four days, I have not experienced any call volume or speakerphone mic problems like this person did. Possible a bad unit this person received? I can't be sure. Call quality has been excellent on both handsets for both the caller and receiver. The display is a bright and pleasent black on white. Outside of the "medley" ringtones which most phones have these days, the normal ringtones are pleasent and professional sounding. I especially like the call blocking feature. If you receive a call from someone you don't wish to, you can program their number in, along with calls that don't list numbers, and the phone will block them. Your phone will ring ring long enough to ID the call, then stop ringing, and give the caller 5 short "busy beeps" and then automatically disconnect the call. I do have a "cons" list, but it is very short. I love the large letter and number display, and it helps with my wifes bad vision, but because of the size of the characters, the caller id usually requires 2 pushes to view one number. One for the name and a second push for the number. There also seems to be a slight learning curve to learn all of its features. This is the first phone where I've actually had to look at the manual more than once to learn to do something. Perhaps my biggest complaint would be the usuable distance of the phone. I bought it because it touted the DECT Plus, for greater distances than your average DECT phone. Even the Consumer magazine that everyone knows about raves about how much further you can use the phone. It just must be refering to inside a home. I live in a 2 bedroom apartment, and sometimes have the phone while taking to dog for a short walk. I've found that it transmits only about 100 feet more than my 2 year old Uniden DECT. It is possible it has something to do with my building. I get a very weak cell phone signal in and around my particular building, but as soon as I'm a few hundred feet away from it, I get a full signal. This isn't a huge deal with the panasonic, and the pros outweigh this con, but I would be lying if I didn't say I am a little dissappointed. All in all, I am very happy with the purchase, though. I still consider it the best DECT phone I've ever owned.

I have been entirely unsuccessful in finding an expandable digital cordless phone to replace an ancient one that was excellent but that unfortunately died after many years. In an attempt to replace it, I have tried virtually all makes and models that are on the market. I hoped that this phone with allegedly improved technology would live up to the hype, but it did not. I often cannot hear even though I have turned the volume up as high as possible and often others cannot hear me. This is true even if I am very close to the base unit. A headset did not improve the sound. The telephone company has inspected the lines in my house and have found no problem and corded phones work fine. I have run out of ideas regarding a solution. This phone provides no improvement.

Comments about Panasonic Silver Expandable Digital Cordless Phone:
The feature I most wanted, a jack for headset on a single unit was the reason I ordered this phone for my landline. Turns out my headset failed and I need to purchase another before testing. In the meantime, I find the other features very difficult to program and it does not seem to retain more than one caller ID. I'll work on it with the printed documentation before I call the help line. Nice that there is a help line. Hard to program a phone when you are on the phone talking to the helpline tech.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This phone far exceeded my expectations. It is a remarkable product at a reasonable price. I have relied on Panasonic components for years, and this phone has renewed my confidence in their brand name. Thanks for developing such an exceptional product.
Very good stand-alone cordless phone
Have owned numerous Panasonic items over the years and still believe them to be some of the best on the market. This is near excellent phone except for the handset speaker volume. A bit weak on that; could use a couple of more notches up.
Nothing Fancy But Meets Needs
Bought this to replace an earlier model; was the only one I could find without unneeded integrated answering machine (most of us have voicemail now, you know). I miss the talking caller ID, but you can't have everything. But the main downside is the flashing voicemail indicator being practically invisible from the front. The light can only really be seen when you stand right over it. It should have been mounted more to the front.

Love the phone. Easy to use, but if I had to do it again I would make sure the phone had an answering service. It is easier to use than voice mail.
