These are very good quality. The feel, controls, and cabinets are all substantial.

When you turn the device on, a voice says "Power On" and then speaks the channel number. As you change channels, it speaks the channel you just selected.

Squelch is a little aggressive, but there is a button to release it when needed and the software allows you to tweak it, but once set, you can not alter the level from the radio, so a little aggressive is a good thing. Most of the time it was not a problem. I live in a fairly hilly and wooded area and got an honest 1.25 miles of reliable communication over that terrain. At times it went further, but terrain makes a difference. Perfect for places like camp grounds, ski areas, and other outdoor venues. Not going to work to communicate with another party on the other side of the mountain.

According to my meter, it is outputting just over 3 watts, not the advertised 5, but with a better antenna you might achieve that. Even so, it is more powerful than most of the radios that are sold to operate on GMRS frequencies, but not as good as many HAM HTs. But then, it's only $30. The range is very comparable to the $300 Motorola GMRS Sport radios I bought 20 years ago for ski trips. In fact, I bought these intending to be the replacements to those radios and I think they are exactly what I'm looking for. I also don't have to worry about getting a $300 radio wet, lost, or fall from a chairlift. I don't expect 20 years of use, but they seem rugged enough that I'm not expecting them to last only one outdoor trip.

We have used these radios for more than two weeks. Our property is 66 acres and we can talk from one end to the other with no noticeable difference in reception or transmission. The terrain is moderate with innumerable trees an structures. As the crows flys, distance from one end to the other is approximately 1.2 miles.

I have read many reviews on these radios and find that the ones who complain or give it a low rating are radio-heads and techies. For general use with not a whole lot of distance to cover, these radios do the job.

I bought these radios to use around the house and on family outings and I was quite surprised with what I had purchased for the price I paid. The radios came very nicely packaged with all components included; cradle charger, battery, belt clip, ear piece and an antenna. Once I got the units assembled I was pleased with the way they felt. The case does not feel, and certainly doesn't look cheap. When they were powered up, a voiced announces that they are in fact on and then identifies what channel the radio is on. I voice is a little loud and obnoxious sounding, but this can be deactivated by following the directions in a very well worded users manual. Reading this manual introduces you to other features that are not promoted in the product description. A channel can be designated as a "scan" channel, CTCSS per channel, ect and a handy-dandy LED built into the top that can be used as a flashlight in a pinch.
Overall this is a very sound little radio for the price paid. Operationally, they perform quite well. So far I haven't had a chance to try them beyond a 2mi line of sight range, but I suspect they will out perform my expectations again.

I ordered these from alwaysonline which ships out of California. If you don't want to wait for them I would suggest using them. I got my radios in about a week after my order. I've been using them for a week or so at work and they work great. I tested them with about a 2 mile line of sight, (hilltop to home) and they were crystal clear. This weekend I turned them on Friday when I got off work and left them on to drain the batteries so I could charge them for the second time. Sunday morning they were still working with no low battery indicator. I didn't transmit during that period other than to say 'test test'. So they will operate on standby for a least a day and a half. I put them on the charger Sunday morning.
I found that putting them into the charger is a little different. I have found that if I put them in at an angle and then kind of stand them up works best for me. After charging them, up before first use, they work great. When you turn them on there is a female audible voice that says 'power on'. Then she announces what channel you're on '8'. When you change channel she also says that. That's really handy for me so that I don't have to put on my glasses to see what channel I'm on.
These are good radios and a bargin. After trying two sets of 22 and 36 mile range p.o.s. radios, these just work.

ONE YEAR UPDATE++ Still working fine, even after multiple drops. I own 12 Baofeng radios. I have equipped my hospital maintenance and security officers with these. No one wants to carry the heavy Motorols radios any more, and if they lose a Motorola or it gets damaged, you are out $$$$. These are light weight, a breeze to program, you MUST buy the cable to program. They even have some sort of voice scramble feature. These Baofeng radios do everything the big boys do at a fraction of the price. We all laughed at Hyuandai years ago. Well you get the idea. I use the UV5R for me, I like to have a screen, and scan etc. But for point to point, and for building maintenance, these are real workhorses.

Little Update- when searching for the software- do your search as a BF 480- this will do it. Also if you have trouble, check your com port. Also you must hold the monitor button when turning on the radio to go into program mode. I have had this radio for couple of months and they are holding up fine.If you get the software version with question marks, there are 6 tabs on top, File Edit etc. Third one is language, then bottom of that drop down selects English.
