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.
Excellent Dect 6 system
I purchased this product to replace an older Panasonic Dect 6 system that lacked some features of this model. I selected this product after reading the reviews of others. I am very satisfied with the phone system so far, and glad I made this choice after receiving Consumer Reports magazine yesterday, and noting they rated this product as number one in its category.
Best Phone ever made !
This phone is great! It has a big white back light display on the base station. The base and the handsets can play your phone messages back. You can call the base or other handsets. It also has talking caller ID and you can have the ringers on the handsets turn off automatically when you are sleeping. Your friends and family can have a separate ring tone. Plus the base station will still work when the power goes out. But the most important feature is it blocks phone numbers!
Best phone for the elderly
I purchased this for my elderly grandfather. His vision is going as well as his hearing. He was having issues using any cordless phone I bought him, that is until I found this one. It is very loud, in fact I can hear the people talking in another room! The buttons are all very large and easy to press. It is not a small phone but then again that isn't why you are getting it.
A near perfect phone for the hard of hearing minus an answering machine
This phone is as close to perfect as I could find... and I really researched this out at length. It is not only easy to use and program, but it is easy (and the best) phone for adjusting volume and tone. The ringer is adjustable and loud enough that buying an accessory ringer is not needed. It has all the features you would want in any phone including caller ID. This model does not have an answering machine included and that was perfect for me in that I already had an answering service.
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).
Excllent product all around
I will confess up front that I don't like AT&T and their monopolistic ways, and would happily have paid $50 more for somebody else's cordless phone. But Consumer Reports said the audio quality on this one was better than any of the others they tested. That was important to me; our previous cordless (from GE) sounded worse than a cheap cellphone, and we were forever saying, "What?"
So I bought it, secretly hoping I would find some reason to hate it and send it back.
