Summary: Should have battery backup in case of power failure. Needs dedicated mute button instead of going through menu to mute while on a call. We bought this model because the keypad numbers and screen are easy to read and the the keypad is backlit. The base keypad should be backlit too. Fair price for features.
Pros: Comfortable Handset, Compact design, Easy To Set Up, Nice Features
Cons: Call History Search Poor, Needs Mute Button, No Battery Back Up
Summary: I really like this phone system - I got the base plus 4 extra extensions. It's super that the Bluetooth connection to our cell phones allows us to answer cell calls from any room with handset. The ONLY short coming is the Caller ID voice is very hard to understand and can't even pronounce simple names like "Steve"
Pros: Comfortable Handset, Compact design, Easy To Set Up, Good Speakerphone, Nice Features
Summary: I would give this Phone Set 5 stars for all the features is has, but why on earth would you make such a nice System without Speed Dialing??? That is one of the oldest and most used feature on any phone. Very disappointing. Please go back to the Drawing Board and add Speed Dialing.
Pros/Cons Retiring Vtech LS5145 for Panasonic KX-TG7745S
Demanding Consumer, Amazon
8 June 2012
Summary: After four years with my Bluetooth enabled cell phone linking Vtech LS5145 base station and additional LS5105 handsets, the Panasonic KX-TG7745S appeared to be the answer to resolving my battery pack replacement blues while also leveraging newer "advanced" technologies to hopefully improve my phone configuration while simultaneously retaining a comparable feature set.
Summary: Received the product quick and in good shape. The bluetooth works well, however the range is a bit of a disappointment whether in bluetooth or not. The numbers and buttons are very large, a little difficult to get used to. The answering machine works well and can be operated remotely from the phones. The speakerphone works well too, but not that loud. The menu is a bit cumbersome.
