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

Pros:
Very sensitive and selective reception, good power transmittion. Frequency and menu settings are easy and intuitive. Nice three color back light display. Battery charge is fast and satdby time very good. Robust case and antena. Flashlight and FM broadcast receiver are useful accessories. Much better features compared to my old UV3R but the same good DSP skills (see my review for UV3R).
Cons:
Don't have a DC input jack, the only power source is the battery (or a car lighter adapter, sold separately). Can't scan between two selected frequencies, only the entire band.
Other:
Good price, I recommend.
Bottomline:
none
