Panasonic Black Expandable Digital Answering System With 5 Handsets - KXTGE245B

Key Features:

  • Easy-to-use Big Buttons on Handset & Base
  • Amplified Handset Volume with Dedicated Volume Key
  • Advanced TAD Functions
  • Enhanced Noise Reduction
  • Key Detector Compatible
  • Power Back-up Operation
  • DECT 6.0 PLUS Technology

  • Dial Keypad on Base
  • Large, 1.8" White Backlit Handset Display

Features:

Easy-to-use Big Buttons on Handset & Base
No more fumbling to find the right key, and no more dialing the wrong number with the streamlined handset and base keypad configurations.

Advanced TAD Functions
Panasonic keeps you in touch with Advanced Answering Device Functions on select models. Now you can be alerted to recorded messages whether you're at home or on the road. When a caller records a message, the base unit will beep alerting those in the house. Not at home? The phone will automatically send a message to a registered cell or office phone along with playback options.

Enhanced Noise Reduction
The Enhanced Noise Reduction feature available on select 2014 models lets you suppress background noise around the caller while simultaneously enhancing their voice making it easier to hear them. So a parent getting a call from their teenager at a concert can hear what time to pick them up or when a friend calls from a noisy ballgame, you can hear where to meet afterwards.

Key Detector Compatible
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. Key Detector's powerful range finds objects up to 200 yards away so you'll find whatever's lost whether it's upstairs, in your car or in the yard. You can register up to four Key Detectors and give each a distinctive name, like Dave's keys, Sharon's keys, etc.

Power Back-Up Operation
A powerful battery back-up system keeps you connected 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.

DECT 6.0 PLUS Technology
Enhanced version of DECT 6.0 in which transmission quality and range are improved by increasing the frequency of error correction up to 80x.

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?

Large, 1.8" White Backlit Handset Display
See who's calling at a glance on our wide, 1.8-inch LCD and set screen. Featuring black against a white-backlit display, it's crystal clear and easy to read-even from a short distance away.

This phone will alow you to block up to 250 numbers and/or area-codes. (the area-code block is called "blocking a range of numbers"). I have blocked both individual numbers and area-codes and it works great. I also unplugged the base unit from the power to test its ability to work in a power outage and it worked fine.

After 5 months of use, party on other end of line can't hear and tones are not transmitted (tried picking # on menu of a business I called#. On hold for total of 1 1/2 hours today with customer service #called from cell phone) to no avail. Told to return unit to store for replacement. Not the first with this problem. Read another review with similar experience. Disappointing. Decent features otherwise. Had trouble off and on with not being able to hear the person you're calling - volume dropped after number was dialed. Frustrating experience overall. We have VOIP through cable modem. Don't know if that's affecting things.

    Pros

    • Convenient
    • easily seen large number buttons
    • Easy to use
    • Exceeded expectations
    • small beep if a new message has been received.

    Cons

    • power cords attached

      Comments about Panasonic Black Expandable Digital Answering System With 5 Handsets:

      This is a new and improved version of this style. The phone announcer actually says anonymous, not annaneemus. There are still some phonetical challenges for the robotic announcer. The buttons are large and easy to read. Easy to use if one has salon fingernails. It has the ability to retain 250 phone numbers for blocking. Wish it were more! But this is huge compared to the last version we had with 20. Power cords are connected to bases so we were unable to drop the plug through desk holes to power source.

      Why remove the Intercom button?

      Pros

      • Convenient

      Cons

      • intercom button removed

      Best Uses

        Comments about Panasonic Black Expandable Digital Answering System With 5 Handsets:

        One of the biggest features I liked about the previous Panasonic Phone set like this was that the Intercom feature was a direct button on the face. Now I have to select through a dynamic menu making it less convenient to use that highly desired feature of my phones. Now instead of 3 button pushes, I'm up to 8 or more depending on the station I select. Otherwise, it is a good phone system. Only upgraded to get more phones and replace mine after a lightning strike.

            Comments about Panasonic Black Expandable Digital Answering System With 5 Handsets:

            Bought as a replacement for a 10-year old Panasonic system. It was easy to set up and works well. Some of the handset menus could be easier to navigate, but that's what you get with an inexpensive product (and come to think of it, what you get with most products --- the feature interface in consumer electronics always seems like a rushed afterthought).

            Would definitely buy again

              Easy set-up. Great sound. I was strictly an AT&T phone user for many years. this is my first Panasonic, and the sound on both the phone and the answering machine is great. No complaints at all!

              Delivery to the house was quick and ordering on-line convenient (didn't have time to get to the store).

                  We wanted the larger buttons and better volume so brought this new set. We like it, easier to use and more features than our older set. Panasonic has been a very reliable product line for us.
