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
  • Talking Caller ID
  • 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.

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.

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

          We had the previous model of this system for a number of years and liked it, but had a wish list of things we would have preferred. Because we did like it, we went ahead and got this one when the old ones wore out -- and the whole wish list was met! We have it permanently on silent mode, but have typed in a list of exceptions, so that it will ring for family members and close friends. It still lets us hear voice messages, though -- and block calls from the pesky sales robots who leave messages. Also it is easy to erase the caller list so that the phone displays the time of day rather than "Missed Call", which is all the old ones ever showed us. All in all, we are delighted!

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

            THIS WAS A NICE PHONE FOR THE PRICE. THE ONLY REASON I DID NOT GIVE IT 5 STARS IS THAT THE WALL BASE IS A LITTLE TO BULKY AND STICKS OUT A GOOD 5 INCHES FROM THE WALL AND THE HANDSET DOES NOT SIT SNUG ENOUGH SO THAT A BUMP INTO THE BASE CAN SEND THE HANDSET FALLING OFF, OTHER THAN THAT, THE SOUND QUALITY AND AND EASY TO USE BIG BUTTONS AND EASY TO READ SCREEN REALLY NICE FEATURE

            The flexability of having five phones dispersed about the house plus intercom is great. The speaker phone, programming and auto features make it easy to set up and use,

            The only negative I have foung is placing the phone back on the base unit ... small fit makes placement slightly difficult.

                  We purchased these phones about a year ago to replace another set of Panasonic cordless phones. We LOVE them, and with 5 phones we can have them all over, even on the patio. I will always use Panasonic products, especially the phones. They have all the features and are easy to use. They store all our numbers for family, friends and even a few restaurants and other businesses. Don't hesitate to purchase any Panasonic product!

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

                    Bought this set at Costco. Have to say I'm thrilled with every aspect of the phone so far with limited exceptions. The good: Range is great. I bought the range extender just to try it out and with that I can stay connected more than half way down the block from my house. The standard range is perfectly fine. Quality of calls is fabulous. Features - everything advertised works as expected. I've used as many features as I could to try them out and happy with them all. The bad: Standy time is poor. Could be I got a bad batch of handsets or batteries from Costco. I didn't try returning it to see. All five handsets lose power very quickly and need to be left on the chargers almost every day. My previous Panasonic handsets did not need to be charged for 5-7 days. With all those features comes one notable drawback.... The interface to control the features using coded values that are impossble to remember and many are not accessible throuh the quick menu. So you need to constantly go back to the mnaul or make your seld a quick reference guide. Things like call blocking are impacted but most other common functions are not. Since this mainly affects advanced functions I'm ok with it.

                        I received the phone system in good condition and on time. Set up went well (It replaced an older model Panasonic phone.). I have already used the power backup feature when I lost power. The phone is easy to use and sound quality on incoming calls is good.
