happy with the phone

Ray E., Newegg
15 March 2013
  • Summary: I love this phone system even with the few limitations. I wish they made a 6 line, 24 wireless phone system with a similar price point. Yes, they do make these business systems, but at a much higher price, and not much better functioning.
  • Pros: Have used this phone system for at least 5 years, and the 2.4 mhz prior model for 10 yaers. Very happy with both. Call quality every good or perfect at all times. All features work well. Did not have any of the problems notes by other reviewers, suspect they had defective equipment.
  • Cons: Digital read out too small, and should be clearer. Some button too close together

3 year life.

Richard J., Newegg
27 February 2012
  • Pros: Cheapest multi-line phone
  • Cons: Plan on replacing this phone every 3 years for one reason or another. Bad power supply for the first one. Dropping calls on the second base unit. Upside - cordless sets just keep on trucking. Last thing - microphone on some handsets and definitely the base unit stinks. You continually get, "I can...

works

Julie C., Newegg
14 December 2011
  • Pros: 4 lines many features on hold music can transfer calls cordless good range no static headset works (not included) audible without having to put every call on speakerphone not flimsy (dropped a few times and still works)
  • Cons: whenever other lines rings it cuts out for a few seconds on the line you are talking on “off” and "hold" buttons should be on opposite sides of the phone (too close to each other) other end often has difficulty hearing unless you tilt the phone horizontally and speak into the hilt(holding it to y...

Disposable Rubbish

C C., Newegg
9 June 2010
  • Summary: I failed to buy this from NewEgg. (Who's sorry now?) And I waited too long thinking the symptoms were due to something in my environment or application. (VoIP ATA's, FXO/FXS adapters, etc). Don't hesitate - when you see power-related "sickness" on your base station, send it back immediately.
  • Pros: Fantastic specs, works well - when it works at all. 4-line capability, multiple handset expansion. Panasonic's reputed performance in this product sector.
  • Cons: Every vendor drops a "lemon" occasionally: Panasonic's KX-TG4500 is just one of those sour experiences. The base station is plagued by power sensitivity flaws. The LCD backlight flickers & strobes constantly. Base will not function without a battery installed. Whan AC is lost, the battery droops ...

Good unit overall but...

Christy W., Newegg
2 February 2009
  • Pros: Clear Signal, Nice features overall, flashing when call is coming in, all 4 lines work great - even at the same time, music on hold is nice, speakerphone seems to work great on handsets.
  • Cons: Wireless phone unit is failing after 5 months of use. Called Panasonic and had to complain and they agreed to warranty the phone. At first, we beleived it was the battery that was bad. After review, it was the phone. Be advised, batteries are NOT covered under ANY warranty! This might be industry...

can i just second Farago's review?

Matt T., Newegg
14 August 2007
  • Summary: There's an adapter that allows you to import audio for hold music. Why can't this same feature be used to record greetings? Also, there doesn't seem to be a way to check your voicemail through the earpiece of your handset- it comes out through the speakerphone.
  • Pros: Price and expandability- it's an entry level phone system. Read Farago's review.
  • Cons: Read Farago's review. In addition, our base unit keeps recording all sorts of bogus messages, especially the tone that indicates the line has gone dead. Sometimes it records a "your call cannot be completed as dialed" message. Please tell me this product is not making calls on its own!

Reasonable upgrade - Still fundamentally flawed

Peter F., Newegg
29 June 2007
  • Summary: CONCLUSIONS - We are also extremely embarrassed by manufacturers choice of faux-snob British voice prompts - they are in bad taste and will likely cause us to replace this system.
  • Pros: * Much appreciated improvements include: * Speaker phone in handsets * 5.8 GHz - reduces collisions with wireless routers * Music on hold * Flashing antenna on handset
  • Cons: * Truly horrible omnidirectional microphone located beneath base station is STILL the only input method for attendant greetings. This is our greatest disappointment - callers are greeted with acoustically hideous greetings full of ambient noise so typical of cheap omni mikes - the kind used on ca...
