    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    + Sturdy housing, rugged appearance
    + Solid construction in terms of belt clip and battery pack (No wobbling or loose parts)
    + Flexible antenna
    + Mine came pre-programmed in English
    + Announces Power-On and Channel Nr. (in English!)

    Cons:

    Minor:
    - Removing/Replacing the battery while the belt clip is screwed on can be tricky (although there would normally be no need to do so anyways)
    - Belt clip has to be screwed on under a bit of spring force. (Just put it on there and never remove it :D!)

    Major:

    None that I could find.

    OtherThoughts:

    Although it looks big on the photo it's smaller than I expected.

    Bottomline:

    Good product, cheap and appears reliable. Will return with more extensive thoughts after receiving my 2nd unit so I can fieldtest my product.

    Unfinished review/thoughts (English): http://youtu.be/Xg5IJLqLMTA
    Will return with field test and final thoughts.
