The Baofeng UV-5R is not an APX7000, so if you're expecting that, you're not going to be impressed. If you want a good, reliable inexpensive dual band HT that is in fact a COMMERCIAL (it IS FCC part 90 certified) Radio, this is for you. Out of the box, it comes complete with a good 1800mah lithium ion battery, belt clip, hand strap and drop in charger. If you're familiar with commercial radios, you'll feel at home programming the UV-5R with the free software, but you'll need to purchase a USB cable if you don't already have one (this radio uses the same 2-pin Kenwood LMR style cable that Wouxun, TYT and many others use). The cables are less than $20.

You get 128 channels with any combination of VHF or UHF channels. Another plus is the radio ACTUALLY SUPPORTS NARROWBAND, INCLUDING SPLINTER CHANNELS. This is a HUGE plus if you want to use the radio to listen (or transmit, if you're authorized) to public safety after 2013 when the FCC mandates narrowband on VHF and UHF. Many agencies are also going to channel steps most ham radios cannot properly tune (e.g. 154.8225). The UV-5R uses DSP, so it has great audio on both transmit and receive. Reports I got about my transmit audio were great, and I noticed if I spoke loudly, the DSP did a good job of attenuating the voice to a tame level.

The display is fairly easy to read, and for it's size the keys are easy to press. What I really like is the large volume knob with integrated power switch, no accidental turn off of buttons! The PTT key is easy to actuate and you don't get fatigue for long conversations. Speaker is loud, though I don't think it has the 1 watt of audio the specifications state. It is loud enough to hear in a crowd or driving down the road with the window open.

First, to all of the buyers of the Baofeng radios that are also hams, none of the cheaper Chinese radios (including many that cost far more than the Baofeng UV-5R series of radios) program the same way (from the keypad or from the programming software) as their more expensive Japanese counterparts. Simply seeing the "+-" sign on the Baofeng radio, for example, DOES NOT mean that the radio has automatically programmed the correct offset for the band you are on. Baofeng radios have to be programmed with both the complete receive frequency AND the transmit frequency to correctly access any repeaters in Channel (memory) Mode. Since most hams pride themselves on not reading manuals, (if you are a ham) you may have to re-read this paragraph several times.

Second, for all of the buyers of the Baofeng radios that think FCC Part 90 acceptance also means that you can have two frequencies 12.5kHz apart (or less) on your two VFO's (and not hear any other noise or interference on the other frequency), you will need to purchase a different radio than the UV-5R. If you are looking at the UV-5R as a way to reduce expenses but still want a better receiver (and want to stay in the Baofeng radio line), I would suggest either of the Baofeng B5 or the B6 series, which don't cost much more and have a far better receiver. Some folks feel the UV-82 series has a slightly better receiver, but to me it's simply a repackaged UV-5R radio without many of the accessories available to the UV-5R family (like an extended battery, or a "AA" or "AAA" shell pack), so although it does fix a few of the UV-5R's shortcomings, it also adds some new ones (IMHO).

No Better Deal Than This Radio!

With all the features and accessories this comes with, I can't think of anything better to spend thirty bucks on and get so much for so little. Anybody would love this as a gift.

Without going into the specifications and such that is repeated here, I will concentrate on the features:

The battery lasted 18-19 hours when in scan mode.

The receiver in this radio is excellent -better, stronger and clearer than my Realistic 200 Channel Scanner, the old Bearcat and the cheap Uniden 10 Channel.

Get cool accessories for cheap. 4 dollar 14" antenna, 7 dollar AA battery adapter, 6 dollar USB cable, 9 dollar auto adapter pack, 7 dollar remote speaker/mic, & more. The cool little canvas case costs more than the must-have accessories at 10 bucks! -lol.
I recommend buying the "SMA Female To BNC Female Convert Adaptor For Two Way Radio BaoFeng UV-5R FD-880" so you can easily & quickly disconnect your radio to & from BNC antenna connections.

Wonderful support online. People have re-written the owner's manual and converted it from Ingrish to English. YouTube has tons of great video demos, instructional tutorials and reviews for this radio. Check it out!

Free apps for programming and customizing the radio. (CHIRP is a good basic one.)
With the software you can Upload & Download your settings, save settings, easily setup all 128 channels, offsets, Skip for scanning, customize welcome message, arrange & rearrange, create names for the frequencies/channels, etc.
