Product Details

Panasonic Expandable Black Digital Cordless Answering System With 2 Handsets, Model KXTG6842B

Key Features:

  • DECT 6.0 Plus Technology
  • Key Detector Compatible1
  • Enhanced Noise Reduction
  • Power Back-Up Operation
  • Talking Caller ID2,3,4
  • Dial Keypad on Base
  • Large, 1.8" White Backlit Handset Display
  • Bright, LED Light-Up Indicator
  • Intelligent Eco Mode
  • All-Digital Answering System
  • Tone Equalizer
  • Call Block2,5
  • Silent Mode

Features:

Key Detector
Attach the optional Key Detector to your car key ring or other easily misplaced items and forget about ever losing them ever again. Using any of your telephone handsets, you can activate the Key Detector’s beeping alarm and quickly track down your lost keys from up to 200 yards away.

Enhanced Noise Reduction
The Enhanced Noise Reduction feature suppresses background noise around the caller while simultaneously enhancing their voice so it’s easier to hear them if they’re calling from a noisy location.

Power Back-Up Operation (Handset)
A powerful battery back-up system keeps you connected even when the power goes out. Keep a charged handset in the base unit and you can still make and receive calls with the other cordless handsets.

Talking Caller ID
Now you can hear who’s calling from across the room without having to get up. Using text to-speech technology, Panasonic phones featuring Talking Caller ID announce caller ID information in between rings. What could be more convenient?

DECT 6.0 Plus Technology
DECT 6.0 PLUS takes the superb sound quality and outstanding range of DECT 6.0 phones to a whole new level. By increasing the frequency of error correction up to 80x, the transmission quality is improved and the phone’s range is extended.

Intelligent Eco Mode
This feature automatically lowers the power consumption when you’re using the handset close to the base unit. Not only does it extend the available talk time, it’s good for the environment. When less power is used by the handset to communicate with the base unit, battery life is prolonged which results in less frequent charging and can result in fewer batteries in landfills.

Tone Equalizer
Everyone hears differently. To maximize clarity or accommodate hearing loss, Panasonic added Tone Equalizer control to select models. This exclusive feature actually lets you adjust bass, mid-range or treble tones in a caller’s voice for maximum clarity.

        Comments about Panasonic Black Cordless Answering System:

        This base phone is located in the house but the second handset is out in the detached garage where my husband has his workshop. Reception is great. Now I don't have to go out and get my husband every time he has a phone call. I can use the intercom system to ask him a question. I am loving it in the rain & the snow! I like the speaker phone on the handset and the block number feature.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Ordering was easy and delivery was quick, even though it was around the holiday season. Package was in good shape upon arrival.

                Comments about Panasonic Black Cordless Answering System:

                I've had this phone (KX-TG6843B) for about four months now. So far I have no problems with it, and it has been easy to use. Our previous cordless, from another manufacturer, would only allow one handset to be used at any time, so being able to have more than one person on the phone is great. This set has plenty of features for those who need to toy around with setting and such. Sound is crystal clear as I move around to different floors or rooms of the house. Buttons are of good size and easily readable, and the backlite helps when in a darkend room. The build feels pretty solid. The cost, as with most everything, is high. The parts for these phones are pennies on the dollar. So far (and it's still very early), I'm pleased with this purchase.

                    Our family has had these phones for a couple years now and love them. They are VERY user-friendly (even for our young kids, in case of emergency). We have four of them since they are expandable. I would definitely recommend them.

                      I needed a home office phone and this does the job. It has a good speaker phone on the base unit with ample volume. Controls of basic features are easy to use. The phonebook and call history review could use some improvement. Also the headset that comes with the phone is not very comfortable.
