My 1st $25 offer on a 308) was refused. Along with this comment "Also it is a big and heavy unit so saving $10 on it won't really help much. Depending on where you live, shipping will probably add $20-$30 to the price."

Are these so large that they can't be safely shipped in a USPS Large flat rate box for about $15?

Benny, these units aren't mandatory to have, so if you are patient, a good deal will come along. I missed a 616 a couple weeks ago for $20 + shipping. I usually at least get a counter offer, even if it isn't much less than the asking price. I put in an offer on a "BK-Precision-1045B-Telephone-Tester". He was asking $104.99, I offered him $45 & he countered with $70. I didn't get back to him in time, this morning. He relisted It today for $94.99.I like "Make Offer", I always feel like I got a deal. Since I have the 308 I can test phones with, do I really need another toy? My answer would be yes but my wife's would be no. I don't think telling her that since we are married it is half hers would help matters any. I'm thinking of having some of my stuff that I really don't NEED shipped to another address & bringing it home when she's not there. I'm guessing that wouldn't be the act of a loving husband ;-)

From the manual: ( KX-TA308 )

Dimensions (HWD)  14 1/2 x 11 1/8 x 3 3/4 inches

Weight:  Approx. 5.6 lb

I don't have a 308 so I got the above from a KX-TA308 on line manual but the TA308 is not be the same as the KX-T308. The TA308 seems to be a newer, more advanced unit that is smaller in size and weight than the T308. My T616 seems to have the same sized cabinet as the T308 but the T308 may weigh a bit less. Anyone who has a KX-T308 could provide accurate dimensions for that model.

I took my KX-T61610 off the wall to get the following specs. The T616 and T308 on line manuals do not have this information. The dimensions may be the same as the T308 but may weight more for the T616.

KX-T61610

     Dimensions (HWD): Approx. 17 x 13 x 4 inches

     Weight:  Approx. 14.4 lb

Per manual:

Here are copies of the
 - Installation Manual
 - Station User Guide
 - Service Manual (V1)
for the 30810.

The installation manual has all the configuration options.

 Panasonic KX-T30810--Station User Guide for TT and Rotary Telephones PQQX5291YA--CRPF.pdf

PS:  I have moved the manuals to a separate post in the designated key system section:

Thanks unbeldi for the manuals & measurements. My rough measurements were 17"X13"X 4", so the manual is correct. I didn't weigh it though. I'm sure I will get a lot of use out of the manuals.

Looks like another good purchase, since the shipping is low.  It is a version 3 unit, the latest of these. Looks clean.

Hey Benny, did you give in & pay the full price, or did they take a $25 offer? Even if you paid full price, you more than made up for it on the BK Precision 1045A phone taster.
