Motorola should be a trusted name, and I would expect to get a good product at a good value from them. We bought these for skiing trips and bike rides, and they never got heavy use--maybe an average of once a month, if that. They never worked great when we used them for skiing, and I put that on their limited range. The radios are just about 2 years old now, and I wanted to really test their reliability so we could fully understand their limitations before sending the kids off on their own with this being our only line of contact. We had lots of issues--when we would do radio checks just a few feet away from each other, the radios would work okay. Go out 100 yards, and we were better off shouting at each other than using these. Aside from the LACK OF AUDIO CLARITY, most of the time the radios were essentially non-functional. I would say 95% OF THE TRANSMITS WERE NOT RECEIVED, and I could never be sure I was receiving messages. I put some real effort into troubleshooting (resetting the radios, trying different combinations of frequencies) and the result was the same. We also noticed that the LED indicator--the light that changes state based on whether the radio is on/transmitting/receiving--was continuously illuminated at times on some of the radios at some times. I finally contacted Motorola support, and was somewhat pleased that I got a response. That said, the response was "there is no further troubleshooting, and these are not repairable or replaceable."
Aside from my suspicion that these radios never worked at all, what other electronic device would you buy with the expectation that it would completely fail and become plastic waste within 2 years of purchase? These aren't that much more sophisticated than your remote control, garage door opener, or a wireless phone, but those technologies you expect to last almost indefinitely. Last flip phone I had I got rid of because of the ridicule I was getting, not because it had failed in any way. I bet we used these no more than 30 times, and mostly in standby mode, and now we are putting them in the trash. That's not only a poor value for me, but it's also just environmentally irresponsible, Motorola, to produce a product so poorly built that it won't last long enough to justify the resources that were put into it's manufacture. As a brand that should have some respect, I would think Motorola would put more effort into ensuring the quality of their products, and at this point, I would first consider a well-rated off-brand device before something made by Motorola--at least the off-brand is concerned with building their reputation capital rather than squandering it.
BEFORE YOU BUY THESE, they are not reliable enough to use in any situation where you want to be certain that you can contact other members of your group. If you have visions of checking in with your kids while skiing, reconnecting with lost members of your group, coordinating with other members of your hunting group, or having a way to communicate just in case of an emergency while out in the backcountry, forget it. MOTOROLA SHOULD BE SERIOUSLY CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR LIABILITY IN THESE SITUATIONS IF SOMEBODY IS INJURED OR LOST AND WAS RELYING ON THEIR RADIO TO GET HELP. These are novelty radios whose use is limited to the kids playing out in the back yard, except that you can find radios of a similar quality in the toy aisle for a third the price.
Location was Upstate NY, Pretty much rural and farm/ranch territory.
The performance on these units was horrible as we ended up just pulling over many times to confer when Cell phone reception was not an option.
Extremely disappointed. The range was no more than a few blocks... maybe. The 23 Miles advertised cannot be true.
Unless perhaps you are at the top of a barren mound of dirt with 23 miles that leads to the bottom of a valley.
Other than that, these are kid toys not to be trusted for real work/
Concerns: Well, these say they are good up to 23 miles. I don't think so. I live in a rural neighborhood and our road is barely a mile long. I was OK to the end of our road - by the time I hit 1.75 miles - I lost the signal. I live in an area that is relatively flat too - so terrain was not a factor. I'm not buying the 23 miles with this unit. We found that if you were on one end of the ship and the other party at the other end - you couldn't talk. There was tons of metal that was blocking the signal - but still, it was only good for about 3/4 of the ship.
With all these concerns - they are well built and I was glad I bought them.
