Summary: We purchased the Panasonic KX-TGA740 system about a year ago and have had nothing but trouble with it. The batteries go dead in a very very short time. Even if the handset is not used! They have never held a charge very well. A handset can be put in the charge cradle over night and fully charged, and then go dead if taken out of the charger within a couple of hours.
Summary: It was hard to part with my old AT&T cordless phone set I had for over 10 years. Consumer Reports rated many Panasonic phones at the top so I went with this one. This phone has everything, clarity is great, so many features, it's so convienient if you live a fast lifestyle. I bought three additional handsets as well. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Love the speakerphone on the base and on the phones.
Summary: the product which i ordered was of the same model as i had requested however i am not sure if the year was old or new. the product i received was not of the same look or design as those found elsewhere online, and looked to be quite old.
