    Works but you can’t change the batteries without breaking it.
    Rating:2 out of 5 stars
    As far as RF goes the handsets work well. However, I bought them as a saftey measure as I crawled under the house to do repairs while spouse remained outside monitoring the frequency.

    The buttons are located so that as you press up against things (almost impossible not to do in a crawlspace) you can change channel or turn it off (both of which I did) inadvertantly. Also if you grab it the wrong way, you can change settings without intending to. It works great as long as you are very careful handling it.

    I decided to store the radios since I do not have frequent use for them. I thought it would be a good idea to take the batteries out. I looked at the owner’s manual that told me to push down on the release lock and push up on the belt clip. Pushing down on the release lock did not release the belt clip. So after my wife and I spent about an hour each trying to figure it out, I tool a screwdriver and pried the blet clips off. After that removing the batteries took a matter of seconds.

    It’s good to see that Chinese engineering is up to its usual high quality.

    Worked great for our vacation communcation

    We bought the Midland GXT710VP3 radios for our trip to the Bahamas where we would have no cell phone service. They worked great across the entire resort, even from our hotel room, in the farthest tower, to a restaurant in the main building. Voices were clear and static was minimal. The compact charging base was easy to pack and kept the radios fully charged. We never had a dead battery issue. Can’t wait to use them in the great outdoors for our camping and off-roading trips.

    I bought this for our lake home. Great way to keep in touch and minimize runs between the boat, the beach and the house. Love the weather-radio feature. Has been very useful with boating. Great range for the open water. Batteries maintain their charge.

    Good range
    Rating:5 out of 5 stars
    Purchased two sets for ski trip and they worked perfect. The 26 mile range works out to be more like 5 to 6 miles in woods and hills. But even with that the radios have a clear sound and more range then other handheld radios we have had.

    great product for the price
    Rating:5 out of 5 stars

    Helped us when lost
    Rating:4 out of 5 stars
    These radios worked awesome for hiking and communicating to a lost party through dense forest and often no direct line of site miles away. I was very impressed. Although we were within 5 miles(most likely). We did have to switch to a different channel to get a better signal.

    Great Radios
    Rating:5 out of 5 stars
    I think these are great radios because they go very long but not 26 miles.

    Also because they have a built-in NOAA Weather radio and that could come in handy. They have 22 channels, a long battery life, battery

    packs and charger. Although they are very expensive. Usually I use them

    with my friends when I am outside and they are inside.

    worked ok
    Rating:4 out of 5 stars
    They worked good in big open space but of course don’t expect them to work the same when there are obstacles between them. Also, the advertised range is a little exaggerated…

    Midland Radio
    Rating:4 out of 5 stars
    Works as I expect. Reasonable range for neighborhood use. 2-3 miles with lots of obstructions present.

    not as they said….. :(
    Rating:1 out of 5 stars
    it said this product is great….but it’s not :(

    it’s hard to get an open signal and the battery only last an hour even we didn’t use it.

    Great for personal use
    Rating:5 out of 5 stars
    I purchased these to use in town to be in contact with our son when he is out around the neighborhood. We use them daily. We do not use the total range they are intended for but have had great luck for what we need. The weather channel has also been great as just the other night we were out for a walk and the weather alert came on notifying us there was severe weather in the area and where is was going. Another feature that is great is that they can be put on vibrate so when one is being paged, not everyone knows and doesn’t draw attention to what you are doing.

    Hard at 1st but Good Product
    Rating:3 out of 5 stars
    I bought this for my kids to be able to roam around the baseball or football fields and still be in contact with me. It is easy to use once it is set up but I found it a little difficult to set up. Keep in mind, I have no technical skills whatsoever but still I wish that was easier. Although, it does get GREAT distance and has good volume.

    One wasn’t even able to receive anything over 100 ft
    Rating:1 out of 5 stars
    Didn’t realize that one of the radios was bad, took it out for a trip, was basically a brick through the hike.

    One radio was not able to receive anything over 100 ft. Back to Amazon for refund, waste of time!

    Huge size turned us off
    Rating:2 out of 5 stars
    I ordered these radios based on other great reviews, and to replace a set of Motorola radios we felt didn’t last as long as they should.

    Upon opening the Amazon box, I was astonished to see how large these Midland radios are. Remember those old two-way radios you had as a kid? These are about the same size, and look just about as clunky!

    Our old Motorola units, although a bit larger than a cell phone, could easily be slipped in a pocket – there’s no way in the world this Midland would fit in any pocket easily.

    Since we use these while working around the house, we need something small enough to easily carry.

    I’m returning these and looking for something a bit less bulky.

    Although Amazon is great, I do wish they would give dimensions on items like this – instead of just box dimensions. If I’d known the size before ordering, I definitely would have kept looking!
