Panasonic Black Expandable Digital Answering System With 4 Handsets - KXTGE244B

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.

This is a good basic phone for a low price, but it's a bit too complicated to use many of the advertised features. Many features require entering codes to use and using the manual every time unless you use those features every day. Definitely not for the technologically challenged individual. The silent mode option that lets you turn off the handset ringer when you are sleeping is not a push one button feature as I had hoped, it requires entering codes and then start and stop times. Although the base unit has a plug-in AC connection cable, the charging bases for the additional handsets are hardwired. Accordingly, I was unable to hide the cables through predrilled holes of desk/furniture/built-ins as I was able to do with a previous cordless phone system.

                For the basics this was much easier to setup than other reviews I read. The lettering in the display is bigger than I have seen and easy for an older person to read. We are currently testing the different rings for group settings (A different ring for people you know) since the number of crank calls has increased exponentially since Obama took the presidency. The keypad is much larger than the set we had before.

                        A first class home phone system. Setup requires some reading but proceeds well once you are familiar with the features. Have not used the phone very long but no issues so far. Highly recommend this model for the CALL BLOCKING and VOICE ID features. A real advantage for SPAM calls. You can set blocked numbers not to ring at all... Great Product!

                              The sound is good, does not have WIFI interference. The biggest selling point for me was the ability to call block 250 numbers. I am so tired of all of the robo calls and this will sure put a limit on them.

                                  This is the second set of cordless phones from Panasonic that I have purchased. The first set lasted over 10 years and still worked when I replaced it. The new set is also perfect for our needs and definitely had the right price.
