The Panasonic KX TGA740B Cordless Phone is by far the best cordless phone I have owned. My family and I would buy a set of new house phones every year. The last set we purchased was the Panasonic KX TGA740B Cordless Phone and it has been three years since we have it. I am not saying the phone is perfect and had no flaws, but I am saying it is a good phone and definitely worth the money we paid for it. After two years of using it, the batteries on the entire set began to go bad so I ordered new batteries online and put them in the phones. The phones were working like new again. Now we are in the fourth of year of owning these phones and the buttons are slowly beginning to stop working. In order to press on one of the buttons, I have to press down really hard. The call quality is still as good as the first phone call made in these phones, but after such a long period of time, anything would begin to go bad and need new renewal, even a Panasonic KX TGA740B Cordless Phone. I am very happy with the years that I have owned this phone.
