    Horrible Product and Worst Customer Service

    We purchased five of these a year ago. First of all the range is not what they claim and most importantly THEY DO NOT HOLD A CHARGE LONGER THAN A DAY. We use them for hunting and have tried charging them with the battery packs they come with, with the USB and conventional batteries. With the conventional batteries I had to put new ones in daily. I contacted Midland customer service to rectify this situation, as we had spent over $200 on five of these and their response was "Sounds like your batteries are bad." I'm sorry Midland, but I don't think five days worth of batteries are bad. They just didn't want to deal with me. DON'T BUY THESE!! Not only will you have issues with them, but you will be disappointed how the company won't stand behind their own product.

    28 Miles is a Stretch

    I live in a two story house with a full basement that contains a studio where I spend a good deal of time. My wife has some medical issues and I purchased the 2-way radios so that she could reach me when she is on the second floor and I am in the studio working. For that purpose, all is good. I thought the 28 mile distance would allow me the freedom to leave the house and make short trips with my wife still being able to reach me by simply pushing a button. On my first outing, less than a mile from the house, we were no longer able to communicate. 28 miles seems to be nothing more than a fantasy. Communication outside the house remains a phone call and not the push of a button away.

    I didn't read the instructions upon buying these. They were bought as a test baby for inter-office communications. When they are paired with the headsets; made by midland as well; they are flawless. 2 way communication, talk on the channel and it will sense your voice if you want it to. Want the local weather? just push a button. 28 miles away? no problem. definitely would consider buying these again, and I probably will. They come with a recharging stand and if you lose that, just use micro-usb to recharge them.

    Seem to Work Just Fine

    Not the top of the line radios, but they seem to work just fine for the price point. They run with the included rechargeable batteries, but I think you could also just use AAA if in a pinch and not able to charge the pack.

    Got these to use out on the farm so I don't have to carry my cell everywhere. This way I can communicate with back and forth. They are rechargeable and have good enough range for the area we use them in.

    Gave these to my sister in law to use out on their farm, easier to keep in touch with each other then using cell phones, these are rechargeable so no need to keep up with batteries, so far working out well.

    Two-way radios worked very well during a long trip that required us to use two vehicles. Communication was very easy. Plan to use these for communication in town as well.

    I bought these to use on a cruise. They worked very well on the ship. You can't really expect them to go through all those steel decks. But, they did better than expected. Will definitely be using them on future cruises.
