    I recently purchased this phone from a bricks and mortar seller and found the set-up process to mostly straightforward. The voice quality is very good and the high-contrast, lighted display and large buttons are easy to use. I think some of the menu system is not as simple as it could be, but for many users this will be of small concern. Also, configuring the first handset appears to propagate the most essential settings (Time and Date, etc.) to the other handsets automatically. This system is well-conceived. I owned a Panasonic cordless phone in the past, and this new phone feels familiar, which is a good thing; the old phone was excellent too. I do notice that the speakerphone max volume is not as loud as with the old phone, but with 3 handsets provided with this product, you won't need room-filling speakerphone volume. In non-speakerphone mode, the handset volume seems loud enough for all but the faintest phone calls, and there is a handy volume control right where your index finger holds the phone. The answer system is intuitive to use and does exactly what you want. One thing I not right away, however is the light weight of the base and the handsets. In fact, the base would benefit from more mass to reduce the chance of getting knocked over. Putting the handset into the cradle is mostly simple, but it does the charging system does feel a bit cheap, for lack of a better term. Thankfully, the handsets run off two AAA batteries of Ni-MH type. Since replacements are easy to obtain at a reasonable price, Panasonic has taken a step forward from the days where you had to buy a special battery pack

    I've had the Panasonic KX-TGE433B phone a couple of weeks & am still getting used to it. I LOVE that I can block unwanted calls & store 100 numbers in the phone book on this phone . .But I like selecting stored phone numbers by each letter of the alphabet rather than letter groupings shown on the numbered keys of this phone which requires more scrolling.. Also, my old AT&T had more volume control & I was able to adjust the bass & treble during a conversation to improve the sound quality which, for me, is lacking in this phone. This phone has noise reduction but not when using the speakerphone which I like to do . Also this handset lacks a bright light which alerts you to missed calls & makes it visible in the dark. There is a flashing light on the handset but it's not visible to me when in the cradle. So, I love the Call Block which works! But I miss the convenience, sound quality & louder volume of my old phone. I purchased it for the blocking of unwanted calls.

    Panasonic new cordless phone having very little to do with Panasonic phones made years ago. I replaced my old phone with this phone because the old Panasonic had display problems after was dropped hard several times. The new phone is much lighter in weight, the buttons are not nice and “rubbery” as in the old one, navigation through the menus is difficult and the worst is the sound. I had an older Panasonic at the office (replaced with this one) and I have an older Panasonic at home. The sound of the older Panasonics is robust and natural, in the new one the sound seems fake and at certain distances from the base is crackling and at some instances you hear an echo. Why I kept that phone? If the Panasonic became a cheap made phone I can imagine about certain other brands.

    Call Blocking that works!

    My husband and I are landline phone users with nearest phone in the kitchen. We have made many unnecessary trips to the kitchen to answer telemarketing calls. Often the same call is repeated several times in a week. But no more. We purchased this Panasonic 3 handset package (including answering machine) and our days of nuisance calls are greatly reduced! Now we can have a phone right next to our recliners. And each handset has a Call Block button. When you discover this is a nuisance call you do not want to receive again in the future, just press the Call Block button and confirm you want block call. The next time this caller calls, you will get only 1 ring and the handset will say Call Blocked. I love to see that message. And I like the convenience of having the phone right by my chair. Easy to use, good sound quality, and call blocking! :):):)

    Good Reception

    I needed to replace my VTec phone because the reception was not as good as it should be (per family and friends). This Panasonic phone had very good reviews so I gave it a try. I must say that the reception is outstanding which is actually what you need in a landline phone. That said I find it to be rather bulky and a little awkward compared to my old VTec which was very comfortable to hold and use. The Panasonic has a large easy to read display and easy setup however I did not find it as user friendly since the buttons are not as easy to navigate through and somewhat stiff. The answering machine is adequate but the prerecorded message voice is not very pleasant. I am keeping it just because the reception is better.

    Moved to a bigger house with 3 living levels and needed an intercom system and more handsets. My existing Panasonic system had served me well but was not expandable and its intercom feature wasn't as user friendly as I would have liked. So I was looking for a replacement Panasonic system that meet my needs. My new system was easy to set up and is very user friendly. I have 6 handsets and it more than gets the job done. Base system with 3 handsets cost me about $80. I would have bought 2 systems but they only had one so I had to buy 3 single handsets at $40 each. I feel I overspent by $40. Going in I thought the whole system might cost $200, so I do take some consolation in coming in on budget.

    I'm really liking this phone. I never owned a Panasonic before, but based on the features and quality of this one I would buy another. My favorite feature is I can block up to 250 unwanted calls with the push of a button, and that list is separate from my phonebook.....telemarketers be gone! My least favorite feature is not being able to assign a certain ringtone to a specific number. If there's a way to do it I haven't been able to figure it out, but a minor inconvenience to say the least. I was looking for a set that did not have an answering machine but couldn't find one. In the era of voicemail service, I think that's odd that they ALL come with answering machines. All in all I'm very pleased with this product.

    Our old landline phones finally died after 20 years. I read numerous reviews before purchasing this phone. I needed 3 handsets and a system that was simple to set up and use. It was easy to set up. It has large, easy to read buttons. The best feature is the block call button on the handset. It has cut my nuisance calls by 80%. I am disappointed that it has such limited ringtones. Some features are not easy to use. I accidentally blocked a number and I can't find out how to unblock it. I am still not sure how to use the call is waiting feature. For these reasons, I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. For features that are not intuitive, it is not an easy phone to figure out.
