Panasonic KX-TG4744B Phone and Answering Machine

The Panasonic KX-TG4744B is a great 4 handset package with answering machine for under $100. The phones feature DECT 6.0 plus technology, have crisp, clear sound and include some nice ergonomic features making the system intuitive to setup and use right out of the box. The Panasonic design team really did a nice job with the KX-TG4744B packing in features at a very reasonable street price. 

It took us about 10 minutes to unpack everything and get the units charging. Panasonic has opted for regular AAA cell rechargeable batteries. Once the batteries, included by the way, are popped in the phone displays the estimated time required to fully charge the batteries. In this case it was 7 hours.

We didn't wait the full seven. More like three. It was extremely easy to set the date and time and record a personal greeting using one of the handsets. No manual required. We like the light on top of the handset that illuminates whenever a call comes in. The buttons are nice and big with a good feel and fast response. This handset can keep up with speed dialers. The LCD is easy to read.

Call quality is very good. We even had some comments, "are you on a new phone", "you sound different" "I can hear you better". Of course, these days we spend most of our time on the cell phone. But a good landline is nice to have when you need it and the Panasonic KX-TG4744B was a great addition to the office.

If you need a landline and you're looking for a quality handset and answering system package at a reasonable price we highly recommend the KX-TG4744B. In the past year we've tested wireless handsets from Uniden, AT&T and Panasonic in the sub $100 range. This package is our favorite yet. Panasonic really has this down to a science.
