Pros We're committed to Panasonic because we're hooked on the convenience of talking caller ID. Given that, this is a system to replace our worn out Panasonic w/answering machine.
Cons I thought I preferred a shaped phone, but this bar-style works just fine. It's not glitzy; if you're used to your Today screen on your cell phone it will look pretty basic.
Summary The numbers are big and backlit. The type is big and the menu is easy and intuitive--not necessary to look at the book. It works, and sets of phones purchased separately work together with no hassles.
Pros Speaker Phone is better than a base phone
Cons Battery in phone wears out quickly ???
Summary I'm not sure about the battery life as to weather it gains more power the the more you use it or what, but the speaker in the phone is a great idea because you don't have to yell across the room to talk, you can take the phone with you and don't have to put it up to your ear + all the ample features are great. I've had mine for a month now and really like it.
Pros It's from the Panasonic family and ...
Cons Only has 50 name & number phonebook
Summary When will a cordless phone manufacturer discover that most of us want, no, need to save a lot more than 50 names and numbers? Until that happens (my cell will hold hundreds) I'll stick with my (almost 5 year old) Panasonic KX-TGA242W
