Worse Customer Service Ever



I contacted seller less than 3 hours after order was placed. They failed to respond to any of my communications. They LIED about calling me and I have the phone records to prove it. I also opened dispute with Pay Pal and Pay Pal has been waiting for...

Love these!


I've got the version of these handsets that include 5. This phone system is truly amazing. I tested it in the United States as well as out of the country when I traveled. I tested first in a 1500 square foot, 2 story home being able to talk all the way...

Proprietary DECT - Incompatible with other devices


JTAG pads on the PCB, dcx79 chipset is supposed to be ARM-based. What are we waiting for?!

Large back-lit LCD, large keys, uses standard AAA NiMH batts

Not compatible with other DECT 6.0 phones (i.e. not GAP compatible), so don't plan on using your existing phones with this base, or the other way around. Panasonic provides no documentation about this. In fact, the EU version of this phone advertises...

Great for the price, some frills lacking


These are great for the pricee and anyone that doesn't mind slightly below par sound or the fact there is no Talking Caller ID should be happy with them. These are not for people who abuse there phones and expect them to last.

For what is paid these are great little phones. Everything works as well as to be expected for the price, actually quite a bit better than other phones at this cost. Runs on easily replacable NI-MH AAA batteries ; Display is very easy to read, great...

Minor issues are to be expected when buying a product at low cost this is no different but there isn't much to suffer. Actualy there are only a few issues. The first The plastic (although sturdy enough) feels a bit cheap. The second is th sound quality...

Panasonic - Need I say more


I had a Panasonic phone several years ago and it worked great until the battery pack needed to be replaced and it took a lot of searching to find the replacement. One of the several options this phone has is the call blocking option. This option alone...

I purchased this phone as a replacement for a uniden phone which only lasted a year. The main reason for choosing this phone was because they use rechargeable AAA batteries you can purchase anywhere batteries are sold, unlike other phones that require...

None, other than I wish they had this phone model a year ago

Panasonic Solid


Time will tell but looks like they fixed the belt clips from the older models. They use to break fairly easy. One of the best features of panasonic phones has been cheap parts replacements for things like extra charger bases and belt clips. And as...

Solid Panasonic preformance. Finally a cordless phone system that uses Rechargable AAA batteries! The cost of special battery replacement yearly is gone forever! I have bought and used panasonic phones for 20 years. Never had a real complaint. They...

Not much of a con but the ringer tones sound a bit "cell phonish" or tinny. I liked the older style ringer tones that sounded more solid. Its a bit more complicated than my older Panasonic phone but nothing I couldnt overcome
