Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- Very sturdy and strong. - Good build quality inside and outside - Very high power, mine measured over 5,5W on VHF and UHF. - Battery life is excellent. I got 3 days out of it. - Works very good inside the house and car too. - The receiver is very sensitive and works better than some expensive brand ones. - The radio also has good reception and the fact that is automatically turns off the radio when you receive a call is fantastic. -Frequency coverage is great and lcd is very nice with the automatic changing colors. - Programming with the computer is very easy and you can setup numerous options.
Cons:
- If you live in the EU you should order an adapter socket for the charger cause mine where delivered with a US-type plug.
Other:
The best value for your money. I already owned one for over a year, dropped it on the floor numerous times and still works and looks like brand new. I'm a farmer so I use it in very rough conditions. I got it wet (not submersed), used it in the rain and very dusty conditions, in the tractor and still does it's job. Now I ordered 2 more for a friend of mine cause I'm so happy with it.
Bottomline:
The best money can get !!!
