Got this phone for my home office. Speakerphone was important to meand ths quality of it on this model is excellent. I like everything about this phone. You will benefit most from this phone if you hook up additional extensions throughout your home or business.

My only cons are:

1 - No backlit display on LCD

2- Only has 3 programmable speed dial numbers.

3- The LINE IN USE indicator only works if another phone of this same model is in use. So if my wife is on the one line with her NON Panasonic KXTS3282 phone, I don't know the phone is in use and will pick it up on accident while she is talking.

4 - Would be nice if the LCD display tilted. Hard to see when it laying flat on your desk. I ended up building a small angled wood stand to prop it up at a 45 degree angle so I could see everything

What a PITA trying to find reviews for 2-line landline phones.

Using it for a home office phone.

NICE: Crystal clear. Speakerphone is very good. CallerID is great and allows easy addition to built-in directory. Can use different ringtones for each line. Can add other phone of same type as extensions with intercom capability. Has jack for headset (haven't tried it yet). Has Mute button for those boring teleconference calls.

Had a GE 2-line phone that worked for about a year and developed a loud annoying hum. Piece of junk >:(

Buy this one - it's a no-brainer. :)

I have several other models of Panasonic phones at home, so when I needed another, I started with them. The Amazon reviews were positive, so I got this model. I have mixed feelings about it. As a telephone, it is a high-quality device. For my needs (fairly limited), it may not have been the best choice. Here's why: THIS PHONE WOULD BE APPROPRIATE FOR A SMALL OFFICE WHERE THERE'S A LOT OF INTERCOM USE; OR IN A LARGE HOUSE WHERE ALL THE STATIONS HAD THIS SAME MODEL PHONE. The phone is as much an intercom as a telephone, and I don't need an intercom. (The buttons along the right side are intercom buttons--they are not for speed-dialing).

There are a couple of features (or lack of) that some other reviewers have mentioned that make one shake one's head. The LCD display is not back-lit. Have the people at Panasonic ever looked at a cell phone? (On a cell phone, the display lights up, the buttons light up--everything lights up!). On my cell phone, I scroll down vertically to find a name, then horizontally to find the number (cell, home, or work). On this phone, it is necessary to make a separate listing for each (Tom--Cell, Tom--Home, etc.).

I could go on, but I won't, because I don't want to leave the impression that this is a bad phone (it's not); but I wish Panasonic made the same phone without all the intercom stuff, and devoted more of their engineering expertise to further improving some aspects that pertain to receiving (and especially) making a telephone call.

The Panasonic KX-TS3282B was unacceptable to me because it lacked some very basic features that I am surprised the manufacturer missed. The KX-TS328B is a 2 line phone with caller ID capability. However, I was shocked to learn there is no light in the caller ID window so the user can see the incoming number in the window. Therefore, the user is required to use external lighting to view information in the window. In addition, as a desk phone, the instrument lies very flat on a desk top requiring the user to look down on the keyboard when making or answering calls. Having the face of the phone (numbers and caller ID window) on an angle would make it easier to use the phone from a sitting position. It may seem these problems are small inconveniences. However, if one is making and/or answering 20 or 30 calls a day, the this phone presents a problem. There are other problems with the phone. However, these two problems are directly responsible for my returing the product and purchasing a different phone that is more "user friendly". Livingston S. Francis

I had a chance to use the Panasonic KX-TS3292B in my home office thanks to a friend who lent me one. Now I need to buy my own. This is a great phone for any small or home business although I'm not sure why it's listed here for $129.99 list when Panasonic's own site shows the MSRP as $99.95.

I just started working from home and am on the phone most of the day. I needed a two-line speakerphone that I could use with an advanced wireless headset that I bought from Plantronics (SupraPlus Wireless CS351N with lifter).

I echo the other comments both about how well this phone works (it's a great general phone). It also works very well with my headset with one small exception (see below). I also second the recommendations for a backlit or tilted display and a line-in-use indicator that works whenever the other line is in use and not just with like phones.

My one big frustration - now resolved - with the phone was an apparent incompatibility with my headset. Note that the speakerphone function and the headset function on the TS3282 share the same indicator light and button. Apparently it's easy to confuse the phone about the function that is actually being used. When I first would attempt to hang up the phone using the button on my headset, the lifter replaced the handset but the phone would go into speakerphone mode. I later figured out that the problem was a too-short delay between the message to disconnect from the headset base and the handset being replaced in the cradle. The resolution to this problem, which I discovered by accident, was simply to set the lifter to the hightest setting. Evidently the fraction of a second makes a world of difference.

This review should really be 4-1/2 stars but that's not an option, so...

It's a great two line phone with excellent sound quality. The only area that could be better would be if the LCD was backlit.

I've used this phone for about 6 months and it's been highly reliable. If you are looking for a small office type phone I'd highly reccomend this one.

The system works as advertised. One very useful feature is that if you prefer to call out on Line 2 (say you have unlimited calling on the line), you can set the phone to go to Line 2 by default when you dial out. Unfortunately, when you go to answer an incoming call on Line 1, the phone still will default to Line 2 and you have to manually press Line 1 button to answer the phone. If you set the default to automatic, then the phone will go to the correct line the incoming call is on, but you won't be able to call out on Line 2 by default. This is just the tiniest annoyance on an otherwise very fine and inexpensive system. I don't have the problem reading the LCD display as others reported, but it would be nice to have the display light up.

Excellent telephone. Our office recently purchased 4 of these high quality telephones. Excellent sound quality. The intercom and the ability to forward calls from each phone is outstanding. A two line telephone with many convenient options, including unique rings for each phone and each line and for the intercom. Superb annuciator system shows what phone is being used. Automatic roll over to the unused line when you are making calls, no need to hunt for the correct line and button. Would buy again. Some people may consider the need of the transformer and power cord (for the intercom) a nuisance.

The only complaint I have is the lack of backlit screen. Otherwise it is a really excellent phone for home office use. I need a high quality speaker phone for conference calls and this is the best I have tried. Contrary to one reivew, the phone can store many phone numbers (50+?). The reviewer referenced the three memory buttons on the phone. They hold a number each. You program in the other numbers and access them via menus - relatively easy to add and retrieve. I would recommend this phone to anyone needing a 2 line speakerphone.
