Purchased and tried 6 phones. I kept one Panasonic. Shopped, sent or returned 5 other makes of phones. None of the other brands could even slightly compare to the Panasonic. It has all the features that I was shopping for plus the Panasonic name which means quality. I have had the phone about 2 weeks now and am extremely well pleased with it. I sincerely recommend this product to anybody looking for a good wall phone.
Great phone for a senior, high contrast buttons. This phone was purchased for a senior family member, who was having difficulty with the buttons on an existing phone. The buttons on this phone are nice and big, with a high contrast. Very easy to see. It is very easy to guide our family member, to finding and using the 'OFF' button. Nice big letters in red. Using the speaker phone feature, is essential for us; and it is easy for our family member to find the button, and use it. This phone has 3 speed dial buttons. Although it will take some time to teach our family member how to use these, I feel these speed dial numbers are useful for other family members who visit, and the care-giver. The base unit, is a nice compact footprint.
New and Improved. This is a new and improved version of this style. The phone announcer actually says anonymous, not annaneemus. There are still some phonetical challenges for the robotic announcer. The buttons are large and easy to read. Easy to use if one has salon fingernails. It has the ability to retain 250 phone numbers for blocking. Wish it were more! But this is huge compared to the last version we had with 20. Power cords are connected to bases so we were unable to drop the plug through desk holes to power source.
Big help for me. I have poor hearing, and have trouble hearing over most phones, and cell phones. This set of phones helps me hear conversations better, and because I can use it with my landline and my cellphone, it is a great convenience for me. I have another set of Panasonic cordless phones which I have used for years, but many times I cannot hear adequately with some callers. This new set is a big gain in that category.
