We spent over 40 hours testing, researching and evaluating cordless telephones to find the best landline setup for your home or small business. Overall, we recommend the Panasonic KX-TGE433B cordless phone with answering machine. It’s easy-to-use with large buttons and a brightly backlit screen. Plus, it packs in extras like call blocking, emergency backup power and talking caller ID. We’re also fans of the simple VTech CS6719 - which is a great value option if you’re looking for something basic. At the other end of the spectrum, the Panasonic KX-TG7875S has more features than any other phone we reviewed and is better suited to business integration than other phone sets.
