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

Pros:
Good build quality, feels professional Very sensitive reception, even with original antenna
Cons:
Although the build quality is good, it is a bit plasticy. Nothing flimsy about it though. Programming is extremely painful, you should buy the USB programming cable with this. The power plug is US type, so you might need an adapter for that. It is 100-240v, so it will work.
Other:
Amazing product. Comes with removeable antenna, power adapter, charger, removeable battery, and a quite flimsy handsfree. It works but its not very comfortable.
Bottomline:
Works as expected. If you need an handheld uhf/vhf transceiver, get this one. Will buy more.
