I just received the UV-5R today, and I'm very impressed! The design and build quality are top drawer. The user interface is about what one would expect. The included accessories are also very nice.
Some strange features including the seemingly inevitable white LED flashlight, plus an Alarm mode that defaults to actually transmitting whooping sounds over the air (set to SITE asap).
QNB 23/10. HI HI. Lots of good and easy info on the web. I think I'll buy a programming cable. Freeware SW on the web.
Such a good deal that it's kinda a no brainer... ...if you're a licensed ham, buy it.
