This starts with the basic equipment, which boasts illuminated keyboard and display, if the display lighting is somewhat dimly. The caller CLIP is compulsory; also a speakerphone has bought Panasonic.

Telephone number management, the cheap Panasonic model offers the standard in this price class: the phone book keeps track of 100 numbers together with the name, up to 50 phone numbers stored in the caller list.

Also praiseworthy: Panasonic uses newly energy-saving switch mode power supplies – what is prompt positive effect with a power consumption of only 1.3 Watts.

No “full eco mode” installed

Also the radiation reducer “eco mode” is integrated, whenever sleep puts the radio part of the base, if only one handset is a busy and this is due to load into the base station. A pity that Panasonic installed still no “fully eco-mode” which shuts down the DECT-duration radio in standby mode.

When handling the balancing act between appealing design and large keypad succeeded in Panasonic; only the display keys are for comfortable operation but slightly too deep into the housing.

The display is suitable both for accomodate and see weak users: while the display panel, such as in this price class is common, only monochrome, but the dot matrix is very high. So the display shows digits and letters in jumbo size, making the KX-TG6421 also for seniors a recommendable choice.

Weaknesses in the handling

Small weaknesses show up however when handling: the keyguard is not intuitive and switching off the ring tone works only a medium-sized binge in the menu.

The premium accommodation testified in turn the Publisher’s own test laboratory Testfactory: ordinary readings at the sound of bring 89 points; Thus the Panasonic in this discipline has beaten only the top finishers.

Overall, the Panasonic because of large buttons and display presentation gets even a recommendation.
