Excerpt: We've had this system for several weeks and it works well. Some reviewers on some sites said you cannot have separate messages for each line. Not true. The menu begins by offering same message on both lines, then separate message for each line. Another reviewer said there was no signal for a message on the answering system. True on handsets that just say "new message" but the base has a blinking light.
Pros: Comfortable Handset, Compact design, Easy To Set Up
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.
