    Well engineered with useful features

    This Panasonic KX-TGF575S was a replacement for an older Panasonic cordless phone system. After several days of use, I"m very satisfied, and impressed with the engineering and useful features. Voice quality is good, and I really like the Link2Cell feature. I don't like to cart my cell phone around when I'm at home, and as a result I either miss calls or have to dash from one end of the house to the other to grab the phone. Link2Cell lets us easily handle our cell phone calls throughout the house. I found the user manual on-line and read it prior to deciding on my purchase, so I was pretty familiar with the features. As a result, setup was pretty quick and easy. I found it helpful to initially plug all the handset chargers into an outlet strip and do the system setup with all the handsets and base together on one table. Some things need to be set up on each individual handset, and this let me complete all that work in an organized manner without running around the house. One area where I had a small problem was with text message alerts from my iPhone. I couldn't get it to work, and the Panasonic user manual wasn't helpful. It pointed me to a web page with setup information for iPhone and Blackberry. However, the only thing I found there was info on setting up the Android app. After a bit of experimentation, I did find the solution... in iPhone settings, Bluetooth, for the Panasonic device, turn on "Show notifications." One other small complaint is that the handset charger base is hardwired to its AC adapter. Our old Panasonic charger bases had a connector into which the AC adapter cable was plugged. I have one charger where I need to route the cable through a confined space, and with a bulky charger base on one end and a bulky AC adapter on the other, it isn't possible. For now I've placed the charger base in a different, less than ideal, location. Eventually I may cut the cable and install a 2-pin connector that's small enough to let me route the cable where I need it. I can't comment much on the digital answering system. We already have a corded phone with answering system that we like, so we're continuing to use it. However, I did set up the Panasonic answering system, which took about 3 minutes or less. I think when we're travelling I may switch to the Panasonic system to take advantage of its ability to call my cell phone to notify me of a new message. In summary, I'm satisfied with this system, and I don't think you'll be disappointed either.

    Excellent Cordless Phone System, but little change

    This is basically the same phone system I bought five years ago and eight years ago, with little in the way of technological advancement, except perhaps the frequency, encryption, and blue tooth features. This still has the same GUI, the same ring tones, same back-lit LCD screen, and the same memory as nine years ago. Look what has happened to cell phones in that time, and yet this seems to be a technological dead end. Why? Come on, Panasonic, get with the times! Sure, there is now a "Call Block" button, making it easier to block a live call, but there are still only 250 numbers that could be blocked!!! These telemarketers and scammers have thousands of phone numbers from which to call, so my phone should allow me to block thousands of phone numbers. The block list of the Panasonic phone system I bought five years ago was full after only three months in operation. After six months, none of the new scam calls were being blocked because they switched numbers. Also, the OS on the phone prevented me from being able to wipe the phone's block memory. Yet, this is still a good phone system. I work from home, so I use it for conference calls, and because each handset has a clip, I can wear the phone around the house while calling into a conference bridge. This feature brings great freedom of movement while moving. The range is even good enough so that I can go out into the front or back yard with minimal signal degradation. My biggest issue working from home is the constant barrage of phishing, scam, and telemarketing calls, and an effective call block feature is vital, in my view. This is why, despite all of the other great features of this phone, I only rated it 2 of five stars. I hope someone from Panasonic sees this review so they can improve their designs. I like this phone, but not much has changed in nine years... it needs to evolve.

    Lots of goodies. Horrible Speaker Phones

    The good: Able to link cell phone up to it. Set up different ringer for the cell phone (to differentiate landline/cell). Can name each phones to it's location. Good reception throughout the house (Ours house have cement walls. Phone base is at the end of the house). The bad: Speaker phone is pathetic. All of them. And, the base speaker phone is the worst of them all. Ringer volume can only be changed by pressing menu. Ex: Menu, #105, arrow up or down. A lot of changes can only be made that way. Need a cheat sheet just to operate a phone. Yes!!! Speaker phone is very important to us.

    I have a similar Panasonic system I bought for my home office more than 3 years ago. In a large house now and with my 3 kids and spouse all over it got old yelling for someone. As I need my previous phone system dedicated for work calls, got this new system for use as intercom. The functions are awesome, even though it's running independent of an active phone line connection. My only complaint is you can only expand to 6 handsets total. Otherwise, this system is perfect.

    Handsets don't hold a charge for very long

    There is no phone jack in the living area of our great room, so we keep the base station connected in the kitchen and put the handset in the living area. It works well enough but you will start hearing "low battery... low battery" within 24 hours of taking a handset out of the charger... sooner if you actually use the handset to make a call. We have to swap out handsets daily to keep up. It would be great if the charge would last at least 2 days... preferably longer if no calls are made or received.

    Upgrade from my previous telephones

    We purchased these as an upgrade to our previous 10 year old Panasonic telephones, which performed very well. Love the clarity and range of these phones, and I have one for each room that connects to the base station without additional wires. The feature I appreciate most is the "caller block" button. With all of the telemarketing calls and surveys these days, it's easy just to press a button and block the calls when they don't honor your requests to take your number off their list.

    Performs as Advertised

    What a great phone! With the advent of endless robo-calls this device has made it super easy to limit them. I am skeptical of much new technology, but this one performs as advertised. Setting it up is easy, program one handset or the base, and all units are covered. Incoming calls are announced, and they can be blocked at that point, or later, using the caller ID feature.

    I had a previous version of this same Panasonic phone system. After many years of use (8+..?) with the family it needed replaced. Love the intercom, cell phone integration, and the Voice Mail. This is a great system if you need regular phones versus cellular. I like having a land line. Of course I am using an Ooma system that feeds the copper into my Panasonic system, so there really is not a land line for me either.
