    Have the burgundy model...... had to replace it because the numbers wore off after several years. Then remembered i do have the other hand phone. Went to get that one....seen all the numbers were still in good shape....used it-then forgot the some of the numbers would not work right.....have to push them really hard to get it to work correctly. So replaced it with this model and picked out the SILVER color.....when i ordered this and opened the box when i got home.....I could not believe the whole thing is NOT SILVER only the front. THE back is WHITE.....well while nice....it will get dirty....grr do not like to clean a phone before or after i use it or wash my hands to keep this phone clean. grrr.....thought....well maybe some of the parts like the case inter change.... NOPE not so! Because this phone is THINNER and is VERY lightweight.....looks cheaply made compared to the cordless phone i have now the burgundy one and the one i had in the past of Panasonic Cordless Phones.....just sayin' ! I know they do not make things as good or last in the past.....i know i have been replacing everything that i have had for 20 years.....It is a shame.....Think something should be done about this! I am putting i do recommend this.....because it is what it is....I have found nothing better in this price range that is better made. I am really just upset about the color!

    Bad phone, Useless Warranty

    This phone is below average as a cordless phone. The speaker is weak and you have to basically still hold the phone to hear even when the speaker is on. The answering machine messages are so low you can not hear them. We have to play them back several times to try to get the info left. That was a negative seen in other reviews but I thought surely it can't be that bad and bought this phone anyway. Bad decision. It has a 1 year warranty but Panasonic doesn't actually back the warranty. If anything goes wrong you have to pay to mail it to them which these days is half the cost of the phone. No one can give you any idea how long it will take to either get it back repaired or replaced, if at all. Once they have the phone it is up to their discretion as to how to follow through. They don't have to do anything about it. Our phone did not make the 1 year. It made 9.5 months and that was it. My previous cordless phone lasted almost ten years. Basically this phone and its warranty sucks.

    After a lifetime with corded phones, the one that took messages took a dump. Wasn't looking for anything super fancy. Just a phone that records messages. This phone does that and more without much confusion to a tech challenged guy like me. The directions are a little confusing but once I started pushing buttons, it was fairly intuitive. I ended up enjoying this phone way more than I thought. I like that I can keep one next to me while watching tv. And when the numerous robo calls come in I can see (and hear) who's calling and (most satisfyingly) hit Block and BAM! that number is blocked without having to get up. Battery life not the best, but I don't spend a lot of time on phone. Nice to walk around the house and talk, including the garage.

    I recently gave a review on the Panasonic KX-TGL432B cordless phone which I didn’t return to Best Buy but gave away to charity. Two days later, I was able to purchase the phone I originally wanted, the KX-TGD532W. This phone has a number of ergonomic improvements over the KX-TGL432B. 1) it is a newer model, 2) it has a separate display digitally listing the number of saved messages, 3) it has a separate dedicated button to block callers, 4) the ringer is louder and the speaker quality is better, 5) it was actually less expense when I made the purchase. Features common to both phones, Speed Dialing to 10 saved numbers, extensive caller phone book, many different ring tones to select, and an accompanying easy to find function instruction paper manual.

    There are almost too many phones to chose from! I decided on this one & am so glad i did! I didn’t need alot of the extras but I still got plenty and they were still easy enough to understand. It has a large phonebook so you can store your contacts, but what’s really nice is it also allows you to easily block all of those bothersome robo & spam calls. That is a nice added feature. It is still easy to go back in and view the numbers you have blocked and even unblock them if you feel the need. I could go on about this phone, but I think you see I’m pretty impressed with it. So far I haven’t found any negatives for this phone. Enjoy!

    It seems so hard to find a really great cordless phone system. We had an older Panasonic cordless system who's batteries were running down very quickly and the sound occasionally sounded distorted. I bought this one as the ratings were better than most others and the price was reasonable. It doesn't really stay charged all that long (not as long as I'd hoped) but since we have two handsets, when one is getting low on battery power, we switch to the other. We don't use the answerphone feature as we have voicemail with Comcast which is convenient to access when we're away. It's probably not the best cordless phone but is sufficient for our needs.

    Good range, excellent vocal qualities, fast blocking feature as well as the other capabilities. Overall, it's a great phone. The only minor quibbles are: 1. The batteries have less capacity, and therefore life, than our previous phones, but still are useful after two or three days off the cradle (but are AAA NiMh, so easily obtainable when needed). and 2. The manual (like almost every manual today) is not perfectly clear. Not impossible, not difficult, but could be done better. It seems that nowadays, manufacturers put less emphasis on the instructions, and more on the hype.

    The old cordless wouldn't charge anymore and I haven't given up on the landline yet. I wanted a phone to screen calls. This works well and gets good reception(better than my last uniden phone). The price on sale was acceptable. Good voice quality on the handset. The playback on the answering machine is not very loud on the highest setting- my old one was very loud. So if you have hearing difficulty (elderly or impaired), this will not be the phone for you. I will recommend it because it works for me and the price was right.

    very complicated cordless phone/answering machine

    I am very seriously considering returning this phone'/answering machine. I usually like Panasonic products. However, I have had several answering machines over the years. But never one so complicated. I like the call announce feature and the better lighted screen. But the other negatives outweigh the positive. such as when you are done listening to a message there's no delete option. you have to go to the menu then select answering machine, then messages. the led screen doesn't show the time.

    I did read other reviews of this answering machine/phone system. It was easy to set up. My favorite option is to have the answering machine announce the caller after two rings. I can hear it in other areas of my house and am notified about the identity of the caller before I actually answer the phone. I do miss the beep when a message has been left on the answering machine as my old machine did. This one only flashes so you are not alerted to a message being received unless you physically look at the base.

    We love our new cordless phones because they make it easy to read the numbers from the caller. The keypad is bright too. These phones are left off of the charger for days and used frequently and the batteries have not gone dead. We are so impressed with options of the phones too. Our household likes to do 3 way calling and these are the phones for that! We will be getting another one to keep in the basement as well. Great purchase at a reasonable price.

    We had an old Panasonic phone system that had stopped working properly and was producing audio with pops and clicks, I researched numerous brands and models of portable phones and found the KX-TGD532W to have the best reviews especially for the price which is very reasonable, This phone works so much better than the older one and provides louder volume in the speakerphone mode. We also like the feature which makes it so easy to Block callers by pushing one button!! So far, So good!

    After months of suffering with poor reception, battery length, dropped calls , and overall poor performance from AT&T and V-Tech expandable phones, I finally spent a little more and got this Panasonic 2 handset system. I love it. Reception is great. Battery holds for 2 days or so out of the cradle, and it’s so easy to block calls. Caller id is announced clearly too. I will definitely buy Panasonic again.

    Very easy set up, looks good, big bold display, built-in answering machine, voice announces the incoming calls, clear reception and volume--this phone was just what we needed and was at the price we wanted to pay. We have one downstairs near the computer that connects it to MagicJack (which is awesome). The second one is in an upstairs bedroom (about as far away as possible in the house) and also connects to MagicJack without a problem.

    We had a 10 year old ATT cordless phone and 2 weeks ago, one of the batteries would not recharge. We took the price of a new battery towards the cost of this new Panasonic wireless. Let the new Panasonic phones set on their chargers for a while to get them fully charged. Then proceed to set things up ........long story short. The settings are so easy and simple. The axillary phone is in a bedroom and the main unit is in the living room. I recommend this wireless phone!

    Lousy service from Panasonic

    I generally like Panasonic products. This phone would be a good phone for the price. Less the 24 hours after receiving this phone on one of the handset one horizontal line of dots stopped working on the LCD screen. I did an online chat with Panasonic and was informed that I'll have to pay for the shipping to the service center. It's like paying twice for something even if it's a manufacturing defect.

    I purchased a Panasonic cordless phone from Best Buy for my land line. I purchased this brand because I have owned other products from this brand and have always been satisfied. I purchased this model because of the easy to read buttons and caller ID. Everyone in our household is at least 50 and so we need large easy to read keyboards. The handset also has a caller block button that allows us to block unwanted calls from solicitors.

    I keep buying Panasonic because I think they are the best. This set has added features like call block and it speaks to me and tells me who is calling. Very easy to check calls that came in. I can't say enough about this phone. But If there is a draw back, it can be difficult to put the phone back in the base cradle. I wish now that I had purchased the phone that came with two handsets. Good price for a good phone.

    This phone was the perfect size and looked really nice but there was a constant buzzing sound in the background when the other person was talking. I tried moving the phone to another room but it didn't help. Not sure if the noise was coming from the phone or an outside source but I had to return it. If this is the type of phone you're looking for you should give it a try.
