4 out of 5 eggsDecent, compact GMRS radios

Pros: Good distance in a compact unit.
Nice and small.
Very clear voice.

Cons: After swapping batteries, all settings are reset back to factory. That is horribly annoying. One star taken off for that.
Bought 4 and one of them is bad out of the box.
Doesn't show a constant battery level on the display.

Other Thoughts: I have a few different brands of these type of radios, and these worked surprisingly well. I tried them out on a walking route that I've tested others with, and these reached as far as my much more expensive units. Not quite as static-free, but very good distance. Voice quality was excellent.

One out of four was defective, so I'll get to see how Midland's warranty service performs.

My biggest gripe is that when you swap out the batteries, it resets all your settings. Sure, there aren't that many that you can set, but your channel goes back to one and that really irritating "Roger Beep" is on by default.

Not sure what the other reviewer meant about it going through batteries quickly. I used mine almost constantly for an hour with 800mAh rechargeable batteries and it still had a full charge on it when I got home.

Getting them for $25 a pair on a Shell Shocker deal, they were a great price. Even with the cons listed, I'd still buy another pair and even recommend them to
