Best Two Line Cordless Phone
Panasonic KX-TG9322T or KX-TG9382T
Selecting a two line cordless phone can be a daunting task. There are dozens to compare and at a glance they look much the same. In fact there are significant differences, but they aren't always obvious until we start using them at home.
The best are Panasonic and Uniden two line cordless phones. Back in the days when 5.8 GHz phones were state of the art, they had almost no competition. With the advent of DECT 6.0 technology that's definitely changed. The latest entrants have had no difficulty in manufacturing the hardware, their challenge has been in making a two line cordless phone that is both bullet proof and easy to use.
Premium Two Line Cordless Phones
The Panasonic KX-TG9322T (without answering machine) and KX-TG9382T (with answering machine) are the best 2 line phones currently available. More than any other manufacturer Panasonic researches the features that consumers want and it's always the first to bring out innovations. It no doubt explains why Panasonic cordless phones outsell all others, even despite the fact that they cost more.
This is the top of the line model with all the extras: answering machine, expandable to six handsets, Silent Mode and it's a Bluetooth cordless phone as well. Users can download phonebooks from their cell phones and answer calls using Bluetooth headsets.
While most phones enable users to manually silence handset ringers, Panasonic has gone way beyond that with Silent Mode. It's provides features that anyone running a home based business will find indispendable if they are concerned about seperating their business and private lives.
We particularly like the fact that Panasonic hasn't followed in the foot steps of other manufacturers in achieving nickel and dime cost savings by eliminating features such as belt clips and headset jacks. It's also standardized on the use of standard rechargeable Ni-MH Batteries AAA batteries across the whole range. Many manufacturers continue to use proprietary battery packs that are expensive and only available from specific outlets.
This is the top of the range two line cordless phone for those who don't need either an answering machine or Bluetooth. Those relying on voicemail rather than an answering machine can make a significant cost saving while having all the other features (except Bluetooth) found on the KX-TG9382T.
They are good looking well constructed cordless phones in a class of their own. As with all DECT 6.0 phones interference is not an issue and range is seldom an issue in most homes.
Panasonic consistently brings out the top rated cordless phones in almost every category. It's products are well designed and the company obviously pays great attention to detail. In our view a Panasonic two line cordless phone (either of the above) is the benchmark against which others should be compared.
