Panasonic KX TCA155
Advantages: Easy to use, sleek design, good reception, easy to navigate around
Disadvantages: None from me
It is very rare that I use our land line phone, these days it is so easy to pick up my mobile and chat away to friends and family whilst on the go, I often catch up with friends when I am walking home and as the mobile phone deals are so cheap I would be lost without it, but I did find myself at a loss when our landline phone went down a few weeks ago, My Nan and a couple of Aunts just don't seem to be able to get the hang of phoning my mobile so I need the landline for them as much as anything so when I was using it and the line was so faint and crackling, after getting the electrician at work to look at it for me, it was deemed dead! So I had to look for a quick fix and after looking around I decided to invest in the Panasonic KX TCA155 and here are my thoughts on it.
I made the purchase from the Argos store, it was easy for me to be able to go into town and pick it up. The phone is also available from the Amazon website and the Curry's store. I know this as I did a price check, the phone will cost you around the £25.99 price tag so in my opinion that is not too expensive. I would not have really wanted to pay a great deal more the product and this seemed to fit in with the specifications that I had for the phone as well as it being a good known brand.
The Panasonic phone came well packaged and upon opening I found that it had a detailed instruction booklet as well as a 2 year manufacturer's guarantee. The phone has quite a sleek design about is as well as the base being nice and compact. It is brushed silver in colour and the buttons are black with the numbers printed in white and they do stand out really well and are very clear. The phone is cordless and it is run of rechargeable batteries, there is 600 minutes of talk time and up to 120 hours of standby time. I guess like my other phone we just got used to charging it overnight and this seems to work fine, I have never know the phone go flat on me!
The phone is quite lightweight to handle and it is also comfy to use. There is a very clear display on the phone, it is a LCD display screen and when the phone is in use it will light up. Because we don't tend to use the phone that much I guess we have not taken full advantage of the memory on the phone but you can add some favourite numbers. One thing that we did access on the menu button of the phone was the ringer and volume controls. I set the volume to the highest as only having the one handset, I needed to be able to hear it all across the house, I set it at the highest but even this is still a little bit quiet but that is just my personal tastes.
I have to say that after using the phone for some time now, I am really pleased with it. The phone has a good reception and when using it I find that it is really clear. Whilst I may not really understand all of the technical stuff that goes with a phone, I do like that it works well, is really easy to use and is reliable, as I mentioned, it charges well and I would hate not to have it now.
There is no answer machine facility with this phone, that is something that was done on purpose as we have the BT answer phone but it is worth me pointing it out.
In summary, as I am sure you have guessed, I am really pleased with this phone and it is really easy to navigate around, reliable and good quality.
5 out of 5 from me
Thank you for reading
