Excerpt: My son and I hunt in northern Colorado, and we wanted to say in touch when we are a mile or two apart. At sixty two, I feel better at having some communication. You never know when you might need to say in touch. Better to have them and not use them , than need them and not have them. After reading a lot of reviews, I bought him/us these radios. They are GREAT. I really like how soft you can talk and still hear each other three or four miles apart.
Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Quality Construction, Very Good Features
Excerpt: Great company to deal with! I placed an order for the pack of 2 walk and talk two-way radio on Wednesday and it arrived on Thursday! Very carefully packed, nice box and the product is as I expected! Very satisfied! Awesome! Great experience!!!!
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Interface With Camcorder, Improves Performance, Lightweight, Quality Construction
Summary: Save your money! If you don't be sure you save your receipt. Radios less than 1 year old and midland holds fast to having receipt. Getting my old motorolas out they are over 10years old and still working.
Excerpt: We have been shopping around for awhile for 2-way radios and we found these in the store for about 100 dollars. So loved the fact that we found them for much less and they are exactly the same as in the store.
Pros: We have been shopping around for awhile for 2-way radios and we found these in the store for about 100 dollars. So loved the fact that we found them for much less and they are exactly the same as in the store.
Summary: In hind-sight having camo 2-ways looks cool but after having almost lost one (fell off my lawnmower) and spending about an hour looking for it I think my next set will be neon-orange or something.
Pros: Does exactly what I need it to do and includes many extra features!
Cons: To use all the functions a FCC license must be purchased and they run around $100. But since it is not entirely necessary I would say this is not necessarily a con. The headset etc. is cheap and practically useless.
Excerpt: My husband and son work road construction and use these to communicate traffic needs from one end of the road to the other (which could be several miles apart) They work wonderfully and they are very impressed with the quality.
Pros: Rugged, Good Audio, Lightweight, Easy To Use, Clear Signal
Summary: I expected WAY better from a Midland product, I've had radios from them for years, and never had such a stupid problem. I guess I need to find a new manufacturer.
Pros: Lots of useful features, including group send modes. Would have been very useful to me, if not for the cons.
Cons: The built in speaker, even at max volume is very quite. I had a hard time hearing it even in a quite room. Even the included headset, it remained quite. Even at max volume, using the headset, I could not hear someone talking into the other radio while I was in a moderately noisy room. We even tried turning whisper mode on on the transmitting unit, and the other person practically yelled.
