Great for kids – BF-666S 5W 400~470MHz 16-Channel Walkie Talkie w/ 1-LED Flashlight - Black Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Very cheap and hard wearing. I also found these the easiest to program as they work with various pieces of software. Does indeed tune from 400MHz and the flashlight is a nice touch for those camping.
Cons:
The sound is less than perfect but absolutely fine for general use. They just give a little extra noise compared to my other radios. There is also a little squakyness in the voice quality but it doesn't affect their use. Not quite the full 5W, I get better out of other radios but this is still powerful!
Other:
If you program these into PMR frequencies (and reduce the power of course to stay legal ;o) they are excellent as toys and even then some for camping. They are not to be sniffed at.
Bottomline:
Get one at least - they are that cheap but I think the BF888s are better in quality if you want to go for a quality radio.
