The sleek design with user-choice multiple colored display looks sharp and compliments the dashboard / cockpit of my 2016 year class A motorhome. The ease of tuning the radio without the need for an external meter - was a plus feature that I was not expecting from a radio of this class, yet Uniden always impresses me with their unique equipment options with users in mind. I use Uniden scanners and handheld radios; this CB radio is no exception, it's design is first class. I like the weather push button option, quick easy way to check the local weather from NOAA wherever you are. The microphone is high quality with a push button that feels like a team of designers decided to make this one last. Personally I like the look of the mic as it has this sort of space age look to it. The radio performed well on our last 4000 mile journey across the USA. The sound is that CB sound, that cuts through road noise but easy to squelch out if desired, signals boomed in from far away and my signal reports, combined with the Firestik CB antenna, were stellar.
OBJECTIONS / ISSUES:
Beeps for EVERYTHING get kind of annoying.
Uses a 6 pin mic plug instead of the standard 4 pin, but comes with an adapter so you can use aftermarket mics like the Astatic RD104E-4B Road Devil I use on mine. (See review.)
Plastic face plate scratches VERY easily, which is unfortunate in a dusty environment like an offroad vehicle. Also prone to bad glare, so if you prefer dim displays, you'll find yourself unable to read it in bright light. LED intensity is adjustable, but the process to do so is unhandy. So switching from bright to dim for day/night is really not something you're likely to want to do on a regular basis. Not sure why they didn't just put a "dim" button or switch on the front panel like they did with the Bearcat 880 and 680 models.
You'll almost certainly want an external speaker for any sort of serious use. The internal one is just barely tolerable.
If it sounds like I hate it, I don't. It's a fine radio. I'm just trying to point out some of the issues where it could stand improvement. If you don't need SSB, save yourself $15 and get the Bearcat 880. Or, if space is an issue, the Bearcat 680 is about another $15 less, but you sacrifice some bells & whistles with the 680, Wx being one of the very important ones, in my opinion.
