The trio with brio!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic KX-TG2513ET DECT Trio Digital Cordless Phone Set - Black (Electronics)
I bought these phones for my parents who still don't get along with mobiles and insist on landlines, and also have some very old phones in use (cords!).
The phones look very nice and are extremely easy to set up. The thing I noted first was that there was only one phone line required for three phones. The last time I bought a landline phone (nearly ten years ago!) each phone required a phone socket so on each floor of the house there is a phone socket for this purpose. However with these phones you plug the main phone (the one with the bigger base than the other two) into the phone socket and the other two phones just need to be plugged into an electronic socket. Genius! And very useful for those who don't have multiple phone sockets to spare.
Also, when setting up the phones, entering dates and times, etc, this just needs to be done once and all the phones are automatically updated from that one phone, saving you time from doing it three times.
The one thing I will say is that the bases of the phones don't seem very sturdy and seem quite light. That said there haven't been any problems with them.
Also the ring tones are a pleasant sound rather than the former phones that had a shrill, piercing ringing that annoyed the dogs.
The display is monocolour, rather than a full colour display, but my parents don't mind as long as they can answer and return calls on it, it's perfect.
On the whole, a very decent buy. It's price is very good, the product works fine, all the phones look very smart when set up, and overall everyone's very happy with these phones. Highly recommended!

The first one to tell me what I needed to know, "only 1 phone line needed" not even the Panasonic web site told me that.
