Excellent quality and value, nice features,
Comments about Panasonic Black Expandable Digital Cordless Answering Phone System:
Clear voice & easy to hear adjustable ringer with choice of ringtones. The cordless system includes three very comfortable, lightweight handsets that amazingly durable. My kids have dropped them numerous times on our hardwood and tiled floors and yet they work like new. We love the "call blocking" feature that gives us the power to "Zap" those annoying telemarketers. With the money we have saved that the phone company would have charged us for " call blocking" we have already paid for Panasonic cordless phone system . The system is a great value and I will only buy Panasonic in the future.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

NOTHING LIKE MY LAST PANASONIC FONE
My old system was 11 or 12 years old, other than not holding charge long it worked perfectly. This system was a birthday gift (unsolicited) so I hooked up & much to quickly donated the old one. Like most everything today, quality lower, much smaller and more plastic. Cumbersome to use, more buttons to push needlessly compared to old system, lot of yes/no. My family uses intercom often, instead of having intercom button on first screen like old phone you have to push menu, intercom, select, yes/no, select! Smaller buttons and spacing between buttons. PROS, sound quality is good, range better than old phone and has a blocking system I love and enter every telemarket number I get.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Answering Machine that doesn't answer
from South Bend, IN, USA
We turned on the answering machine function (handset and base), but not a single message was ever recorded. Then (on p. 43, the 4th entry under 'messages not recorded') it said that if you have voice mail from the phone company, it won't record messages! I don't actually have voice mail, but that's apparently where messages are dumped. Had I know, I wouldn't have bought it. This should have been stated on the box, not p.43 of a manual you only see when you open the box.

Great choice for the money
Panasonic was recommended to us because of call blocking feature by a friend. We love this model and all the features. Yes, it does ring one time on blocked calls, but we don't consider this a problem. Pronunciation of names is wacky, but as other reviewer did, we tweaked the names and it works for us.

Do not buy for Call Blocking!
If you're buying this phone for Call Blocking, please don't. After you enter the numbers you wished blocked into the call blocking list the phone still has to give off one (1) ring before it can block the number. This defeats the purpose of having Call Blocking because the phone will continue to give of a single annoying ring on each incoming blocked number. With all the smarts in this phone, Panasonic could have done a better. Like wait for the caller ID information; check the Call Block List and if the number is not on the blocking list allow the phone to ring. Again don't buy for Call Blocking as you will be disappointed!
I would buy this product again

About Me Quality Oriented
(6 of 7 customers found this review helpful)
I like this phone, good sound quality, easy to use, and excellent features especially call block, I tried to have this feature from tel co. but it only works locally, but this phone will block any number you want which is an excellent feature. Silent mode feature is also a very helpful feature this phone has, and talking caller ID is an excellent feature also. The only problem I have with talking caller ID is, it cannot pronounce well some text even simple words, seems like the voice featured has an accent when speaking, I have to tweak some of the names in the phone list to be pronounced correctly. It cannot pronounce the abbreviation correctly if it has no vowel. Sometimes it pronounce the name how it is spelled. But overall, this phone is excellent.
By Picky consumer wants Quality and Price
from Chicago Northern Suburbs
Purchased this Panasonic Phone to replace the one I have had for 20 Years! Love Panasonic phones, as I have tried 3 other brands and all had to be replaced within a few years. While this phone suits my needs with regard to its features, I am quite unhappy with the sound(Hearing) level. Even on my cell phone, one can raise the volume to a higher sound /hearing level~Other than that, set up was quite easy, but read the instructions as to how to operate this phone ie...(store ph Numbers, erase, etc..)as I personally found it not as user friendly as my older Panasonic, in that more steps were required to program various features. None the less, Panasonics are the only Phones for me and I shall continue to purchase their Phones, unless of course this one lasts me another 20 years.
Would buy Panasonic Cordless phones

Phones are good and durable. Good range. Phones do produce static.
