Panasonic KX-TG4745B DECT 6.0 5-Handset Landline Telephone
At Panasonic, we believe the best technology makes life less complicated. That's why we've designed our 2012 line of DECT 6.0 Plus telephones to simplify the way you make and take calls. We made our phones easier than ever to see, hear and use so keeping in touch has never been easier. A large LED light atop the handset lets you know when someone calls, perfect for when you can't hear the ringer, and an easy-to-read, extra-wide LCD display lets you see who's calling at a glance. Bigger buttons make dialing a breeze while an amplified handset volume ensures you catch every word, even when there's background noise. So no matter what's going on in your world, connecting with friends and family is still as easy as picking up the phone.

I am adding this information a few days after installation, as it is not included in the instruction booklet on page 32 as it should be. If you subscribe to Caller ID this is important to know. When you refer to caller list - the name, date and time appear but not the caller's phone number. This is the first Panasonic phone I've had where there was no number. I called Panasonic and they told me to press the right arrow on the Navigator key which is the large black button with the 4 arrows. The phone number will immediately appear. If you press the left arrow the caller list appears but without the phone #. I hope this is of help.
August 29,2012 update. I'm still extremely happy with this phone, more so than ever.
UPDATE: MAY 21 One of my handsets stopped ringing. I called Panasonic at 1 800 211 7262. The rep courteously walked me thru the repair. Click on menu and then pound #. Press in 160 and it said volume OFF. I used the up arrow and made the ringer as loud as possible and then pressed SAVE! I just saved alot of money as I thought was going to have to purchase a new handset.
All of these Panasonic cordless phone systems are near flawless.
Great voice quality, a near endless array of features, and great range.
So what are the differences between the KX-TG4745B (new for 2012) and my slightly older KX-TG6645B (first introduced in 2011 yet still listed as a 2012 model)
Not much, yet a few important differences did emerge.
The newer model (4745B) has MUCH LARGER KEYS. A definite plus for everyone but particularly useful to the elderly or those with impaired eyesight. I think these larger keys would be welcomed by all. The Actual Number of Keys and their FUNCTION is the SAME on both models, they are just much larger on the 4745B.
The newer model (4745B) is certainly louder - and it has a dedicated rocker switch built into the side of the handset to adjust volume. One of my minor complaints about the older 6645B was that it was just adequate in volume, even at its very highest settings, and you had to press a menu key to increase the volume (see my review of that model). Once again, the newer 4745B is better. It is clearly louder and the volume adjustment is far more intuitive as well as easier because of a dedicated rocker switch on the side of the handset.
The display on the older 6645B is slightly larger and a little bit better. However the text is huge on both models and both displays are quite clear. Even with poor eyesight, the displays on both models are near perfect. But as I look at both models, side by side, I'd have to say I prefer the older model (6645B) by a very small margin but I would not let that influence my purchasing decision. The differences are very minor and the text is huge on both.
Range - it appears to be about equal on both models. I actually did a walking test outside my house switching between both models. In general, the range is amazing. While all my older cordless phones stopped working just outside of my garage door, both Panasonics work about 100 feet or more from the base unit and far beyond my garage door. Amazing! Note as you get maybe 100 feet from the base unit you might hear some hiss. Within my large home the connection is perfect - completely absent of any hiss or any other audio anomalies but outside - if you are really far from the base unit, some hiss is present.
The older model (6645B) can power the base unit in the event of a power outage - the newer model cannot. I would not view that as a major advantage for the 6645B since you only have a few hours of use before the batteries are depleted and depending on who provides your phone service - the basic phone service may not be working during a power outage, so even if your cordless phones are powered up - your basic phone service may not be on. So any advantage is likely minimal. You really should have one hard wired basic phone in your house - the cost is minimal from $10.00 to $25.00
Whatever model you choose - these Panasonics are near perfect. Great voice quality, range and near perfect displays. I've now purchased three sets - two as gifts
One final piece of advice: I'd strongly recommend you purchase one more handset than you think you'll need given the low cost of an additional handset when purchasing a package. Purchasing separate handsets at a later date is much more expensive. Frankly, I'd just buy 5 handsets even if you can't figure out where you will use them all.
The voice quality of these phones is nothing short of superb - on either model - no hiss - or other audio anomalies except at extreme ranges. Simply perfect voice quality!!! As noted - the 4745B is a bit louder and has a rocker switch on the side of the handset to adjust volume.
Cordless phones have finally been perfected! You will not be disappointed by either model of these Panasonic phones but the 4745B is the better choice given its better ergonomics and louder volume.
Both models use a newer frequency which is not shared with wireless routers, microwave ovens, older cordless phones, etc. On either model of phone I have never experienced hiss or any other type of problem unless you are at an extreme range. Within my large home, the sound quality is flawless.
One LAST Update (April 2013): Panasonic just released literature on their 2013 phones. Most of the 2013 models will NOT be available until May/June 2013. While there are a few additional features on a few select models - keep in mind - cordless phones have already matured. I love my 2011/2012 Panasonic cordless phones. Yet some newer ones offer integration with cell phones via bluetooth, if you happen to have that need. Personally I see no major benefits for 2013 except for cell phone integration
For May/June 2013 I'd recommend the KX-TG6845B - it is essentially the same phone. The last number relates to the number of handsets so a KX-TG6845B has 5 handsets, a KX-TG6844B has 4, a KX-TG6843B - 3, etc.
1. Handset is easy to hold, large and backlit buttons makes it easy to dial out in low light.
2. I use only four handsets and the fifth is stored as a backup. Cheaper than having to buy another one seperately!
3. Sound quality and range are very good.
1. Haven't liked the usability of their Address Book. Too many clicks to get to the right names. A quick dial capability for favorite names would have been helpful.
Overall a great buy. Not sure if DECT 6+ adds to the range over DECT 6; I am assuming it does, but haven't tested it that way.
