Panasonic KX-TG6400

The Good DECT 6.0 cordless phone system; 1.8-inch LCD on handset; large, rubberized buttons that are backlit; speakerphone on handset; expandable up to six handsets; integrated digital answering machine (on some models).

The Bad Front of phone attracts fingerprints and oil from your face; not the best looking DECT 6.0 we've seen.

The Bottom Line Panasonic's KX-TG6400 cordless phone series isn't the slickest-looking DECT 6.0 system available, but the phones are solid performers with attractive feature sets--particularly the higher-end models.

Panasonic KX-TG6400

Panasonic's KX-TG6400 series sits at the heart of Panasonic's Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) 6.0 cordless phone lineup, with two-handset bundles priced around $100, or slightly less. We've seen slicker-looking DECT 6.0 cordless phones from other manufacturers, such as V-Tech, but Panasonics KX-TG6400 series is a solid performer with an equally strong feature set. Here are some highlights and impressions we had of the series during our testing of the KX-TG6432, a two-handset model that features a digital answering machine in the base.

Design
The Panasonic KX-TG6400 series comes in a few different colors, including silver and black, all black, and metallic gray. There's a 1.8-inch LCD that has a light blue backlight that is activated when you touch the keys (we found the screen to be of ample size and easy enough to read, but if you're looking for something a little bigger, the step-up KX-TG7400 series has a 2.1-inch LCD).

We liked the large, rubberized buttons (they, too, get the backlight treatment when pressed) and we found the user interface relatively straightforward and easy to navigate. Our one small gripe is that the top of the phone is made of shiny plastic and is prone to showing fingerprints and any oil from your face that may build up when using the phone. This isn't a big deal, but you will find yourself having to wipe the phone every few days if you want to keep it clean.
