It has been about 3 months now with the new Panasonic # KX-TG6592T phone and we still like it. We like the voice announcements of who is calling along with the ring of a new call. The sound quality of people talking is crisp and clear. The caller ID works well no issues, the battery life has not let us down yet, we can talk along time and still have battery life left before we set it back into the stand. The only issue we have is the answering machine does not indicate the number of messages, it just blinks letting you know there is a message. So I would recommend this phone to my friends.
It was simple to install and so far has been a big success. There may be many features that the person using the phone will never need but for now he's happy to be reconnected to the world. I also appreciated the online help I received when searching for the product, and also for the phone contact when I had problems with payment details. Even if they all call themselves Jessica! Panasonic products have always been of steady high quality, ever since my first answering machin in the 1990s and followed my instincts when choosing a phone for my elderly father. I was right.
This is a great phone loaded with useful features. It too me a while and a lot of keying to setup the phones and phonebook initially, but once that was done all that was left was some fine tuning later on. I do however still refer to the manual often. Good answering system with call screening, good call quality, abundant number storage, large lighted buttons and easy to read display, and talking caller id made this a great buy for me. (Caller id is pretty much a pre-requisite to take full advantage of this phone.) Talking caller id could use some pronunciation improvement, but it works for me. Very happy with this phone. (Tip: attaching the belt clip to the handset makes a good shoulder rest.)
These are as near to perfect as you can get. Large, bright lit screens readable from at least 10 feet; large lighted buttons well separated; ridiculously long battery life of handsets; selective blocking of unwanted callers; comprehensive operators manual. Bought one set for 88 year old mother and then for my own home when I saw how good it was. For Mom (electronically disinclined) I set up name IDs of all her kids' land and cell numbers in the directory, so now she can easily see from the display whether the caller is known or not. Using the directory for calling OUT took a long time for her to master. For my own home I purchased two extra handsets which were easy to program to the base unit. A couple a small annoyances - the answering machine does not have an audible alert for new messages, and even answered calls are logged as "missed calls" on all handsets except for the one that took the call. Otherwise, a suburb set.
