The Panasonic KX-TG4742B DECT 6.0 is one of the most popular Cordless phones on the market.
When you are in in the market for a small business or home cordless phone system there are several factors that are very important to consider. Chief among these factors are call and transmission quality. The KX-TG4742B has been on the market for many years and is as popular as ever.
As cordless technology has continued to move forward there have been tremendous advances in the range and reception quality. Many people tolerate their home phone being of low quality sound quality.
They hold onto their old system for far too long, not realizing that the garbled and static filled conversation they are having is a remnant from the past.
So if you find that you are still living in the technological stone age of home phone systems then you might consider upgrading to the Panasonic KX-TG4742B DECT 6.0 Cordless Phone with Answering System. It is more than just a phone. It’s a robust cordless phone and answering system.
While the KX-TG4742B is shipped with 2 handsets, the very same model can be purchased with more handsets to meet your needs.
Some of the main features of the KX-TG4744 is:-
DECT 6.0 Plus Technology
- 2 Cordless Handsets
- Single line
- Digital Answering Machine – Included
- Amplified Handset Volume with Dedicated Volume Key
The KX-TG4744B comes with 4 handsets.
The KX-TG4745B comes with 5 handsets.
This combination of handsets should cover most small, medium and large households as well as a small business operation.
However, if you find that you need to expand the number of handsets in the future, you can upgrade by just purchasing an extra handset, the KX-TGA470B is the single handset available for the Panasonic KX-TG47XX series of cordless phones. It should be noted that the single handset does require the base unit in order to operate correctly.
The KX-TGA470B Single Handset.
The Panasonic KX-TG4742B is expandable up to 6 handsets in total, giving you the freedom to expand when and if it’s needed.
The Panasonic KX-TG4742B comes standard with a call answering system and can handle about 18 minutes of recorded messages, which should be more than enough for the average user. A message waiting light will flash on all connected handsets, and the message can be retrieved from any of the handsets. You can also retrieve your messages remotely if you happen to be away from home for an extended period of time. This feature ensures that you will never miss an important message.
Another feature that is great about the Panasonic KX-TG4742B cordless phone system is that it runs at the 1.9GHz frequency. This is the radio frequency that the phone and base broadcast their signals at. The most common broadcasting frequency found in home electronics is 2.4GHz; this is why the 1.9GHz frequency that this Panasonic model runs at is a smart point of differentiation. If you have a home wireless network, it’s probably transmitting at 2.4 GHz; you don’t want your phone to compete with your wireless network.
What is DECT 6.0 Digital Technology?
DECT 6.0 technology was designed as an international standard for cordless phones and is established throughout the world as the reserved frequency standard for DECT 6.0.
When multiple pieces of electronic equipment are running at the same frequency it can cause a great deal of crosstalk which will ruin the quality of all the equipment running at that frequency. DECT 6.0 technology was designed as an international standard for cordless phones and is established throughout the world as the reserved frequency for DECT 6.0.
This DECT 6.0 technology, aside from allowing the phone to run flawlessly at 1.9GHz has also been shown to increase call quality and transmission by as much 80x over other cordless phone models.
What does this mean in practical terms?
Aside from the increased range of the device, you will never have to worry about the call dropping or about having interference from you wireless internet connection, wireless keyboard, wireless mouse or similar devices.
It should also be pointed out that the Panasonic KX-TG4742B broadcasts entirely in digital. This may seem like a minor point, but it gets back to the garbled and static filled phone call conversations that were discussed earlier in the article. An all digital system will provide crystal clear conversations every time. It also has the added benefit of preventing eavesdropping, an issue that is common with older models of cordless phones.
With other little perks like text-to-speech technology, talking caller ID announcements, a large crystal clear LCD screen, and other upgrades, it is hard not to recommend this phone system to anyone looking to upgrade.
