Operating in the 1.9GHz frequency range, your phone will not conflict with other wireless devices such as computer routers, wireless keyboards, microwave ovens and other common household devices. Now you don't have to be holding the phone to see who's calling. Using text-to-speech technology, the Caller ID information is announced between rings.
Good Technology Average Design1/18/2011
I replaced a cordless phone system from VTech with the same number of phones. That system used expensive battery packs and so replacing it with the Panasonic was almost cheaper than buying new batteries. The Panasonic uses rechargeable Ni-MH batteries which are somewhat cheaper. I am satisfied with the technology in the Panasonic and the higher quality that it offers. My concern is in the design. The handset is a little hard to use with one hand. The curved back causes the phone to slip out of my hand when I try to use my thumb to press the buttons and the phone rolls over in my hand. Another problem for me is that the brains of the phone have been scaled down until they become very light weight. This means that the phones fall of of the cradle with the least bump. Even the weight of the plug will pull it off of a table.
Works great but...5/23/2009
Purchased this phone several weeks ago to replace an old 5.8GHz unit. The new DECT 6.0 phones have better range, clearer sound, and better battery life. My only regret is that Panasonic recently announced the KX-TG6444T series. This newer series has ALL the keys backlit, not just the number keys. The screen is also larger and with better contrast. And for about the same price.
This set of phones was bought to replace a two year old phone set that failed made by another large phone manufacturer. This phone set was easy to set up and has exceptional features. Especially nice is the ability to block specific phone numbers from caller ID in the future and that the phone book can be updated from any phone to all phones. Sound clarity is also excellent. No issues with the phones to date.
I don't understand the previous reviews, and why they are agonizing over a wall mount. My toilet didn't come with toilet paper, either, but I don't worry about it, I buy toilet paper. The handset chargers can be wall mounted with 2 screws if you want to mount one/all of those. I prefer the base unit sitting on the desk, so wall mounting isn't an issue. These are great phones. I love the talking caller ID. You know how it is if you wear reading glasses, they are never handy, so it tells you who is calling. The shared phone book is another plus. If I want to enter someone in the phone book, I only need to do it with one handset, not all 4. Great ideas Panasonic. And now, you can get an optional "Back-Up Power Supply" (KX-TCA200) that will power the phones base unit in case of a power outage. This is a great set of phones, and I would reccommend them to anyone.
Nice phone, but BEWARE NO WALL MOUNT1/13/2009
This is the response I recieved from Panasonic: We do apologize for the inconvenience. However, the Wall Mounting adaptor for the Panasonic KXTG9344T Phone is an OPTIONAL accessory (please refer to page 5 of the manual for the information), which you can purchase at our Parts and Accessories Department (1-800-332-5368). The part numbers for the wall mounting adaptor are PNKL1001Z1 (Black metallic) and PNKL1001Z2 (Pearl silver) We hope this information is useful to you. Thank You, Panasonic Consumer Support---- Pretty lame, in my estimation.
Overall, this set of phones is easy to set up and easy to use. I have only two complaints, if you want to call them that. First, there's no warning anywhere that there is no wall mount included in the package. In my prior phone package, also from Panasonic, the wall mount was included so there was no reason to expect it to NOT be included with this set. It's further frustrating that BUY.COM does not carry the mount, either (at least I can't find it by searching on the part number and so far, BUY.COM has not returned my email inquiry as to whether they have it or not. Second, the ring tones are limited in quantity, 3 rings and 4 melodies, and what is available, while I can live with them, stink as far as I am concerned.
