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.
Other:
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.
