Having had excellent experience in the past with Panasonic phone products, I sought out their least expensive, single line, LCD display w/headphone capable unit. Intended use was (is) home business telemarketing, and unit has performed flawlessly thus far. (Battery operated set chosen to avoid frequent problems people have with line noise/buzz with adapter powered units.) Too soon to predict battery life (batteries required for headset operation, per the manual, but no 'rating' for battery life.) My experience with similar Panasonic models with heavy speaker phone usage is approx six months (good.) The only down side IMHO is the laughably cheesy built-in music on hold (which we don't use.) This would be a *KILLER* home marketer product if it allowed you to externally connect a music on hold source. Price slightly higher than elsewhere, but delivery was critical (O.co made it on time.)
When my Slimline phone died I never imagined it would take three weeks to replace it. I discovered all new Slimline phones have everything in the handset which did not work for me and a majority of phones were simply cheap plastic. This is a substantial phone with the numbers in the base where they belong. If you are an older person like me you would be very happy with this phone. You can use it as a one-line phone and it was compatible with my answer machine. Set up is so easy--just remember to press Line 1 so you get your dial tone the first time. Absolutely great phone. I could not be happier with my purchase.
