They do have a slight lag time between picking up the handset and dialing the numbers as the reviewer below points out - but it's a making a mountain out of a molehill.
We even have an on hold music/message system connected to our Panasonic phones which works very well. I would have preferred to just plug in a radio or CD player but for the price of the phones I cannot really complain too much.
The phones are not absolutely perfect but they are very easy to use and suit our small office perfectly.
Unfortunately I think I may have to return the unit. The problem the other reviewer mentioned about the delay in dialing is indeed irritating, but not a deal killer for me. The problem I have is that the Panasonic KX-TCA60 headset I had worked fine for my other panasonic phone, but the mic didn't work on this one. Tech Support pointed out that it's not on the list of compatible headsets for this phone. So I bought another headset that is listed as compatible. (both have standard 2.5mm jacks and are both Panasonic brand) The new headset works, but only with a mid level hissing whistle sound whenever in use. I tested the new headset on another phone and there was no problem.
I work on the phone all day and need to type and move quickly on 3 computer screens all at once. I HAVE to use a headset. And I don't want to go crazy with a hiss in my ear all day.
Also, using the speakerphone didn't work all that well. We had to sit close to it and talk into it for the caller to hear us.
The last thing I'll try before sending it back is to put a backup battery in it. The display constantly shows "Low Batt" since there was no 9 volt included and I haven't gotten one yet. Maybe, something in the circuit needs that battery even when plugged in to work properly. Yet another little irritation.
I contacted Panasonic to see if there was some kind of setting to change and they confirmed that the phones were defective. Otherwise I liked the phones but defective speakerphones in 3 out of 3 is not a sign of quality.
Further to the comments below. In our own AT&T 1070 vs. the Panasonic KX-TS4200B bake-off, we ultimately went with the AT&T 1070. But for intercom speaker/line quality issues, both phones have this problem, which since the intercom works using radio frequencies, is typically caused by outside interference. So in addition to my earlier comments below, 2 recommendations for isolating the cause:
1. Make sure your cell phone is typically not placed on your desk right beside the phone
2. Check out this link to track down interference problems - especially making sure your power adapter is plugged into the wall and not into a power board:
Latest Review - March 2011 - an update
We wound up recently purchasing these phones, after blasting them 4 years ago (See below)
Panasonic has now,fixed much of their famous delayed response problem. There is no longer a lag in getting a dial tone, but as others on this site have noted, there is a slight delay after you press any number key, in getting a tonal response. Some on this board couldn't stand it. Others, like ourselves this time, have decided to live with it. If you are a deliberate dialer, no problem.
But now we have, or had, a different problem, and possible solution. We had to abandon our older, as well as our recently purchased AT&T 4-line phones, as we, like others were experiencing garbled words on intercom conversations - but only with the speaker phone. Handset and earphones both work fine on intercom. So then we purchased these Panasonic phones again, and found to a lesser degree the same problem. No point in calling either the AT&T or Panasonic techs on this one.Read more ›
