Rated 2 out of 5 Booster? Not so much .....
Does not work as advertised. Was told it has a range of 600 feet. The shop with my phone is maybe 120 feet from the house and it will barely work. It does ring for an incoming call but I have to walk outside to have a conversation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Not Satisfied Wrong Unit Recommended
Contacted Website for a KX-TG6431 base unit range extender. Tech stated KX-TGA405 would work with my unit. After trying different locations and reregistering; I contacted the website again. This time I was told the range extender would not work with my base unit and to contact sales for a refund. This could've been averted if the tech knew their products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Colorado Mike Good product, lousy instructions
This little gadget works pretty well...once you get it set up completely. Both the included Installation Guide the animated "Deregister/Register" tutorial on this site fail to mention one important step:
Once you get the extender registered with the base unit (as described in the Guide and tutorials) try to make a call from each handset which you expect to connect via the extender. Watch the lights on the extender when you make this call. If the handset connects with the extender the top green "Status" light should blink when the handset connects. If it does, you're good to go. If it does not, reregister that handset by removing the batteries from the handset. Reinstall the batteries and try making the call again. The green light should blink.
I had 5 handsets with my two year old KX-TG6845 Panasonic phone. Initially only one handset recognized the extender without removing the batteries; the other four worked afterwards. I don't know why the one handset worked.
Another weakness in the extender design is that after a power outage I sometimes have to do the battery bit all over. All the handsets recognize the base unit, but sometimes those connected via the extender lose that connection. Again it is odd that some of the handsets have to be reregistered while others don't, and the pattern varies from incident to incident.

I had a hard time understanding how to set it up. Don't know if I did it right. Didn't call for support. Didn't have time. I'm out of town now.
It's not working. Saw no improvement

Rated 5 out of 5 by scs2169 KX-TGA450A Range Extender
Extends the range on my Panasonic KX-TGF380 DECT 6.0 plus system. I think it's must have item to improve the over all range and transmission of the phone system. It works on my system with 6 handsets. After registering the unit with the base, I had to remove the batteries from each handset to reboot each set. Now the hands are communicating with the extender, top green status lamp starts flashing when handset is in use , bottom green lamp is on .
The Range Extender/Repeater seems to work advertised.
Very happy with the KX-TGA450

Rated 4 out of 5 by Daycare proviger Got it for our daycare center
Needed to boost up reception in the infant center of our daycare center which is not far but the reception was pretty bad. It is easy to install and the phone reception improved tremendously. Does work excellent. Great solution for a small business like ours. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ioakim Excellent product
I wanted a wireless phone I can use in my store, using my home telephone line. Distance is not away, but buldings were a problem. Before using the product, connection quality was 40% good, now it is 85% good. This product made a big difference. I may buy one more, so if i have two the connection will be 100% good.
