The Panasonic KX-TG8065 cordless DECT phone is the latest addition to the Panasonic DECT phone range with a high-resolution colour display, stylish piano black design and One-Touch Eco Mode it is ideal for any home or small office setting. The blue backlit keypad illumination compliments the attractive colourful display whilst a premium texture, non-slip hand grip design reduces finger marks on the attractive piano black gloss finish The KX-TG8065 comes with integrated Telephone Answering Machine (TAM), capable of 18 minute voicemail storage and TAM message counting, an entirely new feature to Panasonic DECT phones. The base unit LCD display counts the number of new voice messages for an immediate status check, whilst the handset-based Visual Message List allows scroll-and-select and prioritised retrieval of voicemail messages. The new KX-TG8065 also comes with an impressive 200 contact phonebook and up to 50 person caller ID as well as an incoming call barring option that blocks recognised unwanted numbers from connecting. A ringer LED illuminates for a visual incoming call alert and a handset locating button on the base unit of the phone means it's never out of reach for too long. Night Mode allows selected handsets to be temporarily muted through pre-set time periods to reduce noise interruptions in designated areas. Clear Sound Technology enhances connection errors to improve sound quality throughout the 13 hours of possible talk time and 0.5W power consumption allows a 10 day standby time. Power consumption can be lowered using the One-Touch Eco Mode which reduces signal outputs by up to 90% in standby This GAP compatible handset, extendable to up to 6 handsets, blends design flare and function. Wall mountable, the KX-TG8065 looks good in any home or small office and adds a vibrant new dimension to the globe leading Panasonic DECT phone range.

The screen is clear, the volume of the speaker and loudspeaker is great and can be adjusted. The buttons are big and unlike my current outgoing phones they respond really quickly and give you almost a click to say you have pressed it (which is really useful when you are using a touch tone system and have to type lots of things in).
The answer system is really easy to use so I've stopped using the one from my telephone provider as you can see how many messages you have rather than having to pick a handset up and listen for a ring tone. The "Copy All" function is really good as you can put all your numbers into one phone and them transmit them to the other handsets, this saves a lot of time!
I spent nearly twice as much for a 4-handset Siemens system a couple of years ago and these are by far superior in nearly every way.
Down sides? The main downside for me is when you copy all of your numbers from one handset to another it doesn't copy the categories (e.g. Friends, Family etc) so you have to set them up on every handset and update every contact, a job that will take you at least an hour even for the smallest contact list (although thankfully this is a once only job).
Only other downside is the ring tones, they are pants and like mobile phones they provide you with dozens that are so tacky you would never use them.
All in all though, a good product that I would definitely recommend to a friend..
Audio quality is fine, with a decent enough volume and perhaps a little better than our old cordless phones (10+ years old Philips 2354S). I suspect the audio quality is far more likely to be affected by the quality of the signal with pigeons bouncing up & down on the line - we are some distance from the exchange.
The instruction booklet gives extensive operating instructions and all in English. If you've used a cordless phone before, you can pretty well do without the manual and simply follow the on-screen prompts. I've only resorted to the manual for the odd thing or two and for "registering" a handset, which is actually very straightforward. Registering is essential for the two handsets that are not in the triple handset box. Don't be fooled into thinking they don't work when you first try them - you have to "register" them before they'll do anything.
I very much like the ability to enter a name & number into any handset once and then copy it to all others. When you first get it you will probably want to load a stack of names & numbers. This is very straight forward and very easy to correct mistakes. At the end of that marathon simply "copy all" to each of the other handsets in turn. In a way it's quite neat to be able to have handsets with different numbers to reduce the clutter on some of the other handsets, as the more numbers you have the longer it takes to search & select the one you want.
Added 07/01/2015: "Please be aware that, if you later modify an entry and then copy it to the other handsets, the other handsets will retain the original entry as well as the modified one. You will need to go to each handset and delete the old original entry, which is a bit of a pain."
I also like being able to name each handset so that it can be put back where it belongs and also to make it easier when transferring a call or using the intercom (who can remember where No. 3 is, whereas "study" or "shed" are much more useful).
The colour screen may not be up to iPhone standards but is still very clear and provides useful information on what's going on.
The handset range is certainly better than my old Philips and extends throughout the house and well into the garden, which is a lot more than our Wi-Fi range from the same spot. (See my answer to one of the questions regarding range for some more detail.)
The answering machine is very good, giving date & time of the call before playing it (this only occurs on the first time of listening to the message; on repeat listening it just plays the message with no time stamp). I've set mine for 1 minute of recording, which should be ample for most calls, but it can be set to up to 3 minutes. You can easily record your own outgoing message to give someone confidence that they are leaving a message on the correct phone!
The keyboard is clear and responsive.
All in all the system seems to be of good quality and I'm very pleased with it.
The photo shows my "Study" phone with my wife hogging the line on another. Top left shows the signal strength and top right shows the answering machine is on and the battery is fully charged. All useful information. (Sorry, Amazon have dropped my photo - Amazon technical problem.)
08/01/2015: I'm pleased to report that the phone system is still working really well and is proving very easy to use. I will also add that it has no adverse effect on our Wi-Fi (& vice versa).
The 8065 pack arrived very quickly and as soon as I opened the boxes I was delighted by the appearance and quality feel of these phones.
The phones require quite a long charge before they can be used, but once this is done setting up couldn't be easier. The instruction booklet is very easy to follow and the system was up and running in no time.
I live in a house with quite thick internal walls and had thought that I'd need to buy a signal booster to get good coverage throughout, but this has not been nessesary.The biggest bonus is that our computer system seems to have welcomed the new phones and there has been no interference at all.
All in all I'm highly satisfied with my purchase, and am slightly amazed at how much technology you can get for about a hundred quid!
