Large, 1.6" Amber Backlit Handset Display See who's calling at a glance on our wide, 1.6-inch LCD screen.
Illuminated Handset Keypad Lighted handset keypad allows for easy dialing in darkened rooms.
Call Block Allows the user to block unwanted calls by entering Caller ID info into the phone's call block memory.
Silent Mode Allows the user to program individual handsets to ring or remain silent for specified time periods without affecting other handsets.
Intelligent Eco Mode This feature automatically lowers the power consumption when you're using the handset close to the base unit. Not only does it extend the available talk time, it's good for the environment. When less power is used by the handset to communicate with the base unit, battery life is prolonged which results in less frequent charging and can result in fewer batteries in landfills.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to read and easy to use This a a good quality product. Many features are well thought out. The letters are large and easy to see. The sound quality is much better than most phones. I will buy another one or recommend this to friends. March 20, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Every facts in the description are true. The sets are of good quality. Letters and numbers are clear, large and easy to read. The sound quality is much better than sets I owned before from another brand. I will buy Panasonic phone sets again and will recommend them. March 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product Simple phonne system, feels good in hand excelent product and very affordable! July 5, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Lots of interference I am disappointed in this phone system. 1) I still have not received the charger module I ordered. 2) I get frequent static on calls 3) Some calls have been disconnected in the middle of a call. May 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Expandable? They call this phone expandable, and the user manual says the optional handset is KX-TGDA20. But, you cannot find that model anywhere on the Panasonic site. To further confuse things, the user manual also calls the supplied handset by the same model number, then says you cannot buy the supplied handset separately. Then, it says Optional handset is different design from that of supplied handset. Phew! It's so confusing, and there are just no answers anywhere. I cannot figure out how to purchase extra handsets, period, and it's not for a lack of trying. April 9, 2015
