Summary: I knew what I wanted. The product filled my needs pretty exactly. But the instruction manual is pretty bad. Every time it tells you what key to use to achieve something, it should tell you where that key is, especially if it's a soft key. Instructions should be fuller. The index is woefully inadequate.
Summary: Using the phone system in an office setting and expanded it to 6 phones total. Set up was a breeze. Phones are much lighter than the previous Panasonic phone system we were using. No complaints so far....minor annoyance is that "caller ID" is not accessible without going through the menu button.
Pros: Compact design, Easy To Set Up, Strong Signal
Summary: Purchased this phone for an office. Phone worked great and had some great features, but the ring tones it had were awful. Did not have a normal ring to it - it either sounded like an alarm or could play songs. It's unfortunate because otherwise it was a great phone, but we ended up reutrning it because the ring bothered staff and clients.
Summary: Have previously owned (3) 2-line phones, as so far this is probably the worst. As we have all come to learn newer, more expensive and more options usually results in poorer quality. 80% of the time it will take until the third ring before the call ID is displayed. The talk, speaker, off, redial, and menu buttons are extremely small, don't even attempt to find any specific button unless you are in a well lit room.
Summary: A rather nit-picky con is that the clips, when clipped to a pocket, cause the phone to stick out at an awkward, very in-the-way angle. This could've been solved by placing the clips further down on the handsets, or changing the contoured shape of the phone at the top. Not the end of the world, but it does tend to really get in the way at times.
Pros: Great phone, great sound quality, exactly what I was looking for. Lack of built-in answering machine is a plus; I have voicemail service on both my phone lines, having an answering machine is pointless. The fact that it takes off-the-shelf batteries is also a plus, my mom had a much older Panasonic cordless phone that she couldn't use anymore because the battery was shot, and a replacement didn't exist anymore. I'm pretty sure AAA batteries aren't going anywhere, and ...
Cons: As the other reviewer noted, the number keys are the only ones illuminated, which is a pain. The Talk/End keys have raised bumps, and the softkeys line up well with the screen, so it's not a dealbreaker with a little bit of practice. However, if you need to use Speakerphone, Pause/Redial, Flash, or Hold/Intercom in the dark, you're pretty much out of luck.
Summary: This model is very good for a small business with VOIP telephone service. Works well with Vonage with 2-line service. I really appreciate the lack of an answering machine function that would otherwise get in the way of our Vonage voice mail functions. The only improvement I would suggest is to provide a tougher 2-line handset like the KX-TGA935B for our shop area.
Pros: Easy to use, Convenient, no answering machine
