Great for Our Purpose. I ordered this package for use by a friend who is blind and has other issues with using technology. She has been determined to learn how to use the essential features and has been quite successful. She was one of my first students 50 years ago and continues to wish to learn new things. The technician (Jessica?) who helped me select the most useful model was most accurate in her choice for us. Thank you.
Good range extender for a cordless phone system. While we don't have a large home, our cordless phone system produced a very poor connection for an upstairs extension. I bought the Panasonic KX-TGA405B and tried to install it. I neglected to read all of the instructions and ended up calling Panasonic support. When they started to walk me through the registration process, I realized I had not read all of the directions. Once I followed the directions, it was very easy to set up. While the status light on the range extender unit indicates it is only getting a "weak" signal from the base telephone, the upstairs extension now works great with a very clear connection.
Great Quality. So many low quality phone headsets out there for a rip-off price. The sound quality on this headset is excellent because it does have some bass (unlike those cheap transistor sounding headsets). Those cheaply made headsets would only last me 6 months. I just bought my 2nd panasonic headset. My 1st one lasted me about 2 years. It was my fault that the 1st one went bad (my child's fault actually).
Why remove the Intercom button? One of the biggest features I liked about the previous Panasonic Phone set like this was that the Intercom feature was a direct button on the face. Now I have to select through a dynamic menu making it less convenient to use that highly desired feature of my phones. Now instead of 3 button pushes, I'm up to 8 or more depending on the station I select. Otherwise, it is a good phone system. Only upgraded to get more phones and replace mine after a lightning strike.
confusing directions. We bought this model to replace our 600 series model on which the digital display had become garbled. Tech support online was very helpful. Shipping was lightning-quick. Unfortunately, initial set-up was quite frustrating. Just setting the time and date proved baffling. We repeatedly followed the written directions to no avail. Eventually, for no discernible reason, the phone began accept input. Some steps to set-up seemed missing or unclear. Post-set-up the phone is working fine.
