Advantages: Simple; Clear sound quality; does its job
I have 2 of this Panasonic phones at my home, one in the living room and one in my parents' bedroom. I have used some them for some time already and found them to be reliable and easy to use.
The phone has a very simple design and it's a compact one. The base is 98x121x54 cm (according to the official website) so you can easily find a place to fit it in. There are also three colours for you to choose: red, grey and black and you can find one which suit your home style. I have chosen the grey one and the colour is kind of metallic giving it a more modern look.
The sound quality is very good. You can hear very clearly. Speaker phone option is available and the sound quality is still good even if you are on speaker and it is loud too!
Moving to the ringtones, there are five for you to choose from. I opt for one with a short melody but the traditional ringtones are also available too. You can just choose whatever you like. Again, it's quite loud so you don't have to worry about missing a call.
There is a phone book function and you can store up to 50 names and numbers in the phone built-in memory. I have to say that I never use this function. I have everything stored in my mobile phone and will always turn to my mobile phone to check for the number. And if I am calling my loved ones, I will probably have remembered the number by heart and will not need to resort to the phone book in the cordless phone! I can't really comment on this feature but I guess it's always nice to have this extra function.
According to the manufacturer, the ECO mod of this cordless phone reduces standby transmission power up to 90%. I haven't done any experiment or research to confirm and I solely relied on what is said by the manufacturer. I know that it isn't much energy but I guess it always help to reduce a bit of our energy consumption (albeit really a bit only).
Summary: A simple cordless phone which does its job.
