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.

Ok, I have had one of the original Panasonic DECT 6 units, from back in 2005 or 2006, I forget when I actually bought it, I just know it was shortly after they came out with them, and I actually paid more for it, then I did for this set, and my old set had 3 hand-sets, instead of the 4, that you get with this set, and like anything else, will have to do some getting used to, but, not really all that bad, since it is pretty simple to find the same things, that I had on my old set, just have to do some reading, before you get too frustrated, is all(Not that I did, but, I can imagine others doing so, is all.)! Only con, that I can think of, is that if you are not electronically inclined, the button usage can be a bit tricky for you, since there are so many new upgrades, compared to the old systems.

I previously had a Panasonic 5.8 model unit. It way surpassed the new phones. The worst thing was not having my voice mails going to my VOIP ooma system, also not being able to transfer the 40-50 phone numbers from my old phones to the new ones. What a bother. The 6.0's display screens do not stay lit, as the old ones did. If I need to see the time, I have to pick up the phone from the charger so that the light will come on and then replace the handsets into the charger. The phones do have good quality sound and the keypad has larger buttons.

                Love this new phone! Caller ID is very easy to read. The "voice announcement" of who is calling is an appreciated added bonus, since my mother has macular degeneration in one eye. Reception is very clear. Would definitely recommend this Panasonic phone!

                                Comments about Panasonic Black Expandable Digital Answering System With 4 Handsets:

                                Would have given 5 stars but the base unit keypad does not function when one uses any of the handsets. This was a main feature that I was looking for to ease those tedious "talking with machine" sessions. I.E. I wanted to be able to enter touch tones while making a call on a handset. Otherwise one has to continually remove the handset from your ear to push the touch tones.

                                Delivery was prompt and product arrived in good condition.
