Summary: I had to get used to the configuration of features on this phone system compared to the system that it replaced (because it stopped working). Some features are not as user friendly. There is no button for retrieving messages (directly).
Pros: The system is remarkably clear and has very good range. The handset will reach the base from 100 yards or so, nice and clear. The talking caller id is a bit amusing sometimes, but this is a handy feature. No need to run to a display to read who it is.
Cons: None that I know of. I have not tried the bluetooth connection.
Summary: This was easy to set up using the quick set up guide. I did have to refer to the complete manual for a few things, but now that I'm using the phone regularly I find it easy to access the various features.
Summary: I bought one set for my mother, it worked really well for two months. I then purchased another set to replace this one and it lasted 5 months. When it works it works great but for the money you would think it would last longer than 2-5 months.
Pros: Have used and sold cordless for years. Panasonic has been the best AND most trouble free. They still have headset plugs and belt clips, which most mfgrs have abandoned. Talking caller ID is really handy. We'll see about the Bluetooth, if I can only get past the issues with compatible cell phones ...
Cons: No mention on newegg product page, of what model handset to buy to expand beyond 3 handsets. The 4HS models I am interested in are out of stock. This would work if HS is not too expensive. ....that is if I could find out ON THE PRODUCT PAGES AT NEWEGG, what model to get. An obvious oversight? ..O...
