Good – BAOFENG BF-888S 5W 400~470MHz 16-CH Walkie Talkie - Black Reviews

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

Pros:
Clear output. It has a nice shape that suits Your hand. Once programmed it's easy to operate.
Cons:
It must be reprogrammed using a PC. Programming software is far from good. Please note that you have to press OK also after the progress bar appears in order to start reading. Used three days and three PC's to find this out ;) It is normal that you have to retry several time.
Other:
It was not easy to find out how to program it. Used SKU 66578 cable. Recommend using WinXP but Win8 x64 is also possible.
Bottomline:
It's a bargin! I will order one more today, now that I found it's secrets.
