The fax machine has an out-of-paper reception of up to 28 pages, which it stores in memory until more paper is loaded. Transmission time clocks in at around 9 seconds per page. You can also broadcast scans to multiple destinations, saving you valuable time.
The copy function supports making 50 copies at a time; it can also enlarge, reduce, and collate copies at your request. The 150-page paper tray is complemented by an automatic document feeder that handles 10 sheets at a time.
The KX-FPC165 comes with a digital duplex speakerphone, allowing hands-free phone conversations, making it ideal for home office and corporate boardroom. While many inexpensive speakerphones tend to clip and echo, the KX-FPC165 is well designed with relatively clear, natural sound quality. Conference calling is also easy, and a 900 MHz cordless handset lets users walk and talk at their leisure. The distinctive ring feature (enabled through your local phone service) gives incoming calls their own ring pattern, depending on the call's source.
The answering system stores up to 18 minutes of messages on one main and two personal mailboxes and even sends a pager message to notify users who are away from home or the office when they receive phone or fax messages. The phone directory is also worth noting for its simplicity. It can hold up to 50 numbers and has a convenient auto-dial feature, which works by simply selecting an entry and picking up the phone. No dialing is necessary.
Overall, this all-in-one machine boats a surprisingly large and useful suite of features, especially when one considers the more-than-reasonable price tag.
