Excerpt: Regular daily household use. The phone has a very large bright display with an easy to navigate menu. All of our previous phones were Panansonic brand and they all were excellent. It appears that each new offering gets better and more user friendly.
Summary: I buy Panasonic cordless phones because of past experience. My last phone lasted about 8 years and I finally decided to replace it when the battery was dying and the numbers were worn off! It still worked well! This phone is larger, geared toward the older person or someone who just wants to have large numbers to punch and a larger than usual readout. It works very well and I like to have the 2nd phone in my bedroom. No phone jack is needed for the 2nd phone.
