The range with 6.0 is double the old 2.4mhz cordless phone system. And the ability to buy $30 range extenders (up to two) makes range issues a thing of the past. The new features like Bluetooth pairing with up to two cell phones (only one can be used at a time) is VERY COOL and works well. The only reason this is a 4 star review and not a 5 star review is the instruction manual on this Bluetooth pairing feature is TERRIBLE!!
Easy to set up and great volume control!
We needed a few more handsets to place around the house. Also needed phones with good volume control. We just love everything about these. Setup was simple simple simple! Volume controls are on each handset, in a great place- just above your thumb as you pick up the handset. Each handset has an indicator light, so you can tell in any room if there is a message - AND you can access the message, change the recording, etc.. all from EACH HANDSET.
Well-designed user interface and documentation
Panasonic's KX-TG1062M is a mid-range combination package of a corded base unit with two cordless DECT 6.0 portable handsets. This is supposed to appeal to people who want to make sure they can make calls if the power ever goes out (if they are using this unit as the main house phone).
Good phone...with some quirks
the cordless handsets do not "sit" in the bases with "certainty". you just kind of place them there...and sometimes they almost fall out. Small issue, but one that could easily be improved with future models.
These quirks are minor and overall, I am pleased with the phone.
This phone works as intended
This is a second phone I purchased for my MIL. The first phone still works, I just wanted her to have an extra one so she can leave one at home and take one with her while visiting her relatives so she would always have a phone to use. The programmable numbers is very helpful and the big number buttons certainly is very helpful to old eyes. Would be nice if it has an answering machine built in that can take TTY messages from the relay operator.
Great if your not expanding the handsets
The corded phone is beautiful; it looks great on the desk. The base station is easy to use and set up is a breeze. Call quality is good and signal strength with the wireless handset is very good.
The wireless hand set is not so easy to use. It has a very poor display with an equally poor resolution. Simple everyday features are hard to find. You will not be able to pick up this wireless handset and use it with any intinuity.
I also purchased six extra handsets at the same time.
