Pros & Cons
The Panasonic KX-TG6512B DECT 6.0 PLUS is an Expandable Digital Cordless Phone System (expandable up to 6 handsets), which is designed to work in 1.9 GHz frequency, providing a long range and clear sound than before. These DECT 6.0 phones do not conflict with common wireless devices such as wireless keyboards and mouse, microwave ovens, routers and/or other house hold item. The Panasonic KX - TG6512B DECT 6.0 PLUS comes with 2 handsets and features - intercom, 4- way conference facility, integrated caller ID, call-blocking, voicemail, speaker phone, redial, silent mode, alarm clock, battery indicator etc. The phone system is also equipped with intelligent ECO-Mode that helps in low power consumption and extends battery life.
The Panasonic KX-TG6512B phone comes with a large backlit LCD screen that displays date and time and big digital numbers. It stores approximately 50 contacts and the handset paging locator is an added advantage. This handset is sleek, low profile base unit with reversible pedestal. The rubberized grip helps prevent slipping and the reverse side of the pedestal makes it quick and easy to mount it on a wall. This slim design makes it a perfect keep for desk or countertops as well as they do not take up a lot of space. In addition, the phone works on standard AAA rechargeable batteries for added convenience.
However, as per some user reviews, the sounds quality is not at par with the features, especially for senior citizens. This phone set lacks an in-built answering machine. Some users have also experienced that the call block feature is not very handy, in some cases, it blocks the numbers from users call list and/or it does not block callers without a number. Moreover, it rings once on blocked numbers that cannot be disabled and is considered a discomfort feature by some users.
Overall, the Panasonic KX - TG6512B DECT 6.0 PLUS Expandable Digital Cordless Phone System is highly recommended by users for its ease of use, expandability and enhanced quality features.
