      After doing a lot of research on a dwindling technology, I found this model to be the best combination of performance and value, with more emphasis on features and performance. The system has so many features, link-to-cell, Google assist, call block and yet they remain user friendly for those that don't particularly care about technology. Call quality, button layout, ergonomics, display are superb (just wish the screen would show all of the caller information) I.E. if a call comes through with a long name, the phone number will not be displayed, you'll need to press the arrow key to display the number. What makes these phones remarkable is the ability to block telemarketers and robo calls. Block up to 250, you'll find that the memory fills up quick however. Talking caller ID is good, but no option to have it announce the phone number, only the name that is transmitted. Naturally some announcements are going to get botched up, but this isn't a quad core smartphone, but it is a solid cordless phone system. As others have pointed out, Panasonic has opted to hardwire the AC adapters to the charging bases, save for the primary base station. This will annoy anyone who wants to fish the wire behind anything where space is tight. I have a night stand next to my bed, moving the whole bed just to hide the wires would be a big process. I used a 1 foot slim extension cord to resolve that issue and the a.c. adapter sits under the nightstand. Long story short, Panasonic should have made a detachable cord. Lastly battery replacement is super convenient, no shrink wrapped packs with funky adapters that you'll never find replacements for in the future. Just don't put AAA disposable batteries in the phone, an older friend did that, yes they fit, no that's a bad idea!

      So Far, So Good...

      Needed a new phone system with an intercom for upstairs/downstairs communications. It works well, sound is good. No internal interference with Wi-Fi or anything else noted - but two negatives for the system. 1 - The remote handset charging stations have WIRED chargers. Not plug ins. Not a big deal unless you are trying to get the charger or the station through the small hole in the headboard to get to the plug behind the bed, or the small hole in the desk. 2 - Transferring a call is a 5-6 step process. The intercom is great for announcing when dinner is ready or someone's is at the door, but call transfer is important and on this system it is a menu option, not a button or automatic feature when you intercom a station. Overall hovering between 3 and 4. Giving it a 4 based on sound quality, battery life and other features. Would recommend, but with the two caveats above. Some of the more expensive systems in the family may address the two issues.

      Happy With My Purchase

      I spent a lot of time researching cordless phones and the choices of manufacturers is a lot narrower than 10 years ago when I bought my last set. I have a home business so I need phones within a quick reach if we receive a call and getting as many as possible in the same package is important. As far as the design, I prefer shorter, fatter phones so it's easier to hold on my shoulder. Panasonic did have an appropriate design but it quickly came and went. The other thing I miss is an easy "hold" feature so I can leave one phone in a room and pick up another phone in my office. I have to scroll through a menu now so it's less handy. However, the main thing is the sound quality and range. Both are excellent and a vast improvement over my old set. The intercom feature is good, the caller broadcast is cool and I can now block calls. I haven't set it up with Bluetooth to our cell phones yet but it seems easy to do.

      I picked these phones primarily because I needed a five hand piece set, unfortunately I haven't managed to get them working yet. I've never seen a phone before that you don't just plug into the phone jack and have them work, you might have to figure out the complexity of the settings but it at least works on the basic level of making and receiving calls., I've plugged these in and nothing, zip, nada....they simply don't send a signal out or receive a signal in and the instruction book doesn't give any insight, I guess they don't want to have to tell you what to do when their phone doesn't work as a phone. I've given it a two rather than a one....(which if you think about it would make more sense since they don't actually work)...because I assume that at some point I will be able to figure it out. But I shouldn't have to, they should work as is.

      When my land-line, home system died after many decades, I needed some additional handsets for my (very) old Panasonic cordless phone system. The Associates at Best Buy were very helpful, but we found that handsets were no longer available for my old system. Hence my purchase of the current system with five handsets. It works extremely well, and the base station, which is in our basement, provides a strong signal throughout the first and second floors of our house. The screen is larger than the one on my old system and is correspondingly easier to read. Programming in the phonebook is also quite easy. I thought the Best Buy price was very good. All in all, I am very happy with this purchase.

      Good system - but very concerned

      On 12/03 15 I purchased a KX-TGE245B and on 01/15/16 the KX-TGE240 base unit failed due to a defect. On 01/17/16 I purchased a KX-TGE445B and the PNLV226 AC adapter was defective out of the box. While reviews of cordless phone systems continue to indicate a high standing for Panasonic systems, my personal experience is certainly counter to that. The unfortunate similarity of the effects of these two defects (two dead base stations) caused us considerable downtime and frustration. I would continue to recommend Panasonic for those in need of a cordless phone system, but my sense is that all the manufacturers are putting less focus on the quality of their components, or the quality of their manufacturing process - or both.

      Totally worthless item

      I purchased this phone after contacting Panasonic, the maker of my previous land-line phone system. They recommended the specific make/model etc.to be compatible with my modem. After installing the unit as instructed I was not able to make, or receive, any phone calls, although the phone line tested OK and continued to provide my wi-fi. After several weeks of problems, Panasonic techs. said the phone must be returned to them for repairs. I'm looking for my store receipt so that I can return it to Best Buy for refund, and replace it with something else. The Panasonic tech. assistance was useless; the equipment itself was worthless. I have no criticism of Best Buy company.

      Disappointing Phone

      I believed that the Panasonic brand was a top of the line brand, but this purchase has clouded that point of view. The phone set is average at best as far as reception quality and ease of use. I thought that the phone would flash a indicator light when a voicemail message was left, but this is not the case. Getting around the menu to find settings, etc is not easy at all and the instruction manual does not fully cover everything. i would definitely not recommend this phone for purchase. It has been a huge disappointment.
