Very happy so far...,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Panasonic KX-TS105W Corded Phone, White (Office Product)
I bought this as an auxillary phone. We've got an answering machine and a fax machine, but I needed an additional phone to be by the computer in my downstairs office and I wanted a speakerphone so when I was telecommuting I could call into meetings and listen to them without holding a receiver up to my ear.
I was convinced to buy this phone by the string (until recently aftet I placed my order) of rave reviews for this phone, combined with the terrible reviews for so many other speakerphones that cost less.
I've only had this phone for a few days, but I can say that it is attractive and seems to be built well. I called in to work and tried out the speakerphone and it seemed to work well on both ends. I heard the other party fine and the other party did said I sounded good.
I like the uncluttered controls with big number buttons and big buttons for volume and speakerphone. I didn't have to pay for a lot of features that I don't need.
This phone also has the added bonus of a headset input, so if I ever need to talk a whole lot from my home office, I could get a headset and talk while keeping both hands free. So far, so good.
Postscript: It's September of 2007 and the speaker volume is now impossible to control and the unit seems to be buzzing. I can't use it for conference calls anymore. I guess I'll buy another one, but I'll look around first.
OOPS! I forgot that this phone is powered by three AA batteries. They need to be replaced on occasion. When they start running down, the speakerphone gets squirrely. So, I replaced them and now the phone works fine.

I unfortuneately purchased this phone, also. I am going to throw it away. The batteries run dead every few days and I cannot use the speaker phone feature or the speed-dial feature. What a piece of garbage.

I don't know what to tell you. The batteries in my phones (I have two of these) last months at least. Seems I don't have to replace them more than once a years. Talk on speakerphone a lot?

Thanks for the info. I seldom use the phone. I have rechargable batteries in it and they only last a day or two. Maybe it's another issue.

Try to use non rechargeable batteries. I might be mistaken but I think some types of rechargeable batteries will discharge regardless after a few days.
