Beyond the false range advertisement, the units are well constructed with easy to use buttons and knobs and straightforward menu operations. These take 4 AA batteries if you run out of juice in the included rechargeable packs. They are water resistant, not proof. Belt clip is solid. The included ear pieces work well. The open channels are all compatible with other brands, but the privacy channels were not with a set of older Motorolas. The NOAA weather radio feature is always handy and worked well.
For the price? Decent buy. They are no better or worse than other similarly priced brands, namely Motorola. Though they really should better regulate the range advertisements.
They overall durability and clarity on these radios are excellent, the fact that you get all the accessories included is just a great bonus. For the money you can't beat them and they are worth every penny. This is my second order of the radios, the first being over a year ago (and they are sill going strong), and I am likely to place a third order in the near future. I can speak enough about the quality versus the price on these radios.
On a side note, my wife and I took these hunting and camping recently; worked perfectly from several miles away in dense forrest. Indoor or out, these things deliver every time. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a quality, reliable radio.
We've messed around testing the range since. One person took a unit in the car and reported their position occasionally. The range was not great, because the house is at the bottom of a hill. But for everyday use, these things are great. We've had one on the boat and had no trouble communicating with someone in the house.
Very much a step up from the walkie talkies I had as a kid, and not "toys", but I feel like a kid every time I use them. :)
