Summary: Weve used this system for 8+ years in a high security precious metals & depository facility. The quality is phenomenal. All employees carry handsets in their pockets, drop them occassionally & talk on them much of the day. The signal has somehow penetrated plate steel walls, kevlar walls, CMU Concrete & rebar walls and bomb resistive polycarbonate after professionals told me that NO phone would work in our environment, A Few other phones failed.
Pros: Inexpensive, Compact, Easy to use, Durable, Exceeded expectations, Convenient, great signal strength
Summary: This is my 5th system in 12 years. I started with the KX-TG4000 then moved to the 4500 thru the years. These phones have almost every feature I need in my small business but they only last 2-3 years. Something always stops working like the ringer, voicemail, hold button whatever. I wish I could send the defective ones back but they seem to last thru the warranty period.
Summary: This phone system has had many electrical problems. The power supplies for both the base and portable phones are really weak and cause electrical unreliability with this phone. They have been replaced many times. The base just stopped working this weekend. When the phone system is working, then it is a great phone system for a small business.
Summary: This 4-line phone system has everything that we require for a small business. We love that we can transfer calls from handset to handset. Now the major problem! This is our 3rd system in 2 years because the ringer stops working on one phone line after another. Customers call in, but we do not know it because the phone line stops ringing randomly.
Summary: We had to search for a replacement phone system when we had to add a third line to our home-office. We were replacing a Panasonic that had been as great as the Panasonic before that, so why wouldn't I have opted for yet another? This system had every feature I needed and more. Unfortunately, it's not self-explanatory and (someone has) misplaced the instruction booklet that must have come with it.
Summary: This review is from: Panasonic KX-TG4500 Cordless Phone Base With 5 Handsets Great unit. One of the few 4 line cordless phones. Easy to transfer calls between handsets. Sound is great in terms of volume and clarity. A great feature is the speakerphone on each handset which allows you to set it down while waiting on hold. Has music on hold which is a nice feature. Don't have any complaints about this phone.
Summary: This system is not very user friendly. We have trouble understanding the manual and getting the phone set up to work correctly. I have worked with computers for the last 20 years so I know a little bit about electronics but this system is very technical but the features are very few. When you transfer a call to an extension it does not automatically go to voicemail if not answered it will just ring and ring.
Summary: We bought this four line phone system two years ago. Set up was fairly easy as I read the manual completely prior to doing actual programming. Sound quality is good. This is a home/home business use system and we have all eight cordless handsets in play, along with all four incoming CO lines. The answering machine portion works very well, allowing us to change around the individual greetings easily.
