5 out of 5 eggs5 Year Update Review

Pros: Long Life

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Just thought I'd do a follow up on their 5th birthday. They have always seen lite use, but still, making it 5 years is still an accomplishment. Everything still works...

Follow up from my 3/19/10

4 out of 5 eggsGood

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.

Other Thoughts: 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.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible Volume

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.

Other Thoughts: 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.

4 out of 5 eggsKeeps the shouting to a minimum.

Pros: Durable, Long-lasting, Rugged, Decent Quality. These radios excel in performance and durability for a working crew.

Cons: Bad clip-on--easily dislodged. Hard to intuit features' setting. Cheap headsets with bad replacement options.

Other Thoughts: Bought four of these to start and love them for my crew. Three are still perfectly operational, but the headsets do not last well. Tried to add to the set but bought GXT795Vp4 by mistake. The private channels of these were lost on the other radios. Buying 4 more of these right now and wanted to share my experience with them.
We do fluid-applied roofing systems, so the waterproof feature comes into play with careless workers. City range is about 1 mile, effectively.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked for me

Pros: I used these a couple times after i bought them, paid more than i should have for them. Regardless, they were flawless. They have more features than ever needed. Why not just use a cell phone? But i was in a group of 20+ people, so in that situation these did the trick.

Mainly i use them when in a caravan with a bunch of cars.

Cons: I used them in the mountains so the 36 mile range was dropped to about a 2-5 mile range... Whatever. I guess if i was on the ocean they might work for 36 miles.

Other Thoughts: Worked for me.

5 out of 5 eggsCORRECTIONS!!

Pros: Havent got em yet. Getting them in a few days but already know about them. Just correcting a couple other reviews that are innacurate.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: "The frequency they use won't bounce off clouds and such, so their more of a line of site broadcast. For this you will need to use UHF radios."

mathelm- FRS and GMRS operate from 462MHz-467MHz which happen to be UHF. These radios ARE UHF radios.

"700Mah 5 cell AAA pack!"

RetroFighter- Not sure of the actual A/Hr rating but these are AA, not AAA.

Jus keepin things sqared up for other viewers!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's great for using in airsoft. We use them for tactical uses during the games. The batteries last a long time. I had mine packed for a few months and the battery was still charged when I started using it again. We bought two sets last year and I just bought another set for the rest of our team.

Cons: The headset is hard to keep on with the helmet and mask I use for airsoft. I bought another headset for it.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Waterproof and rugged, holds a charge for a LONG time. Privacy channels work well.

Cons: 36 mile range grossly overstated. For skiing, you really must be on the same side of the mountain to even have a change, ideally on the same slope/run. Haven't tested the range on flat land, but I'm sure it's much better. A little bulky considering the lack of range.
