Price: $1.00
Pros: Built in SWR meter is awesome. Good quality feel.
Cons: mic cable is weak and failed at the connector. Required soldering
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got this for free. The microphone was being funky and make weird honking noises over the air and I found out the connector conductors were shorting out because tugging on the wire over time ruined it. Overall though I love the unit and the PA system is cool

Price: $100.00
Pros: Portable Handheld, wired in for full size performance with Firestick
Cons: Out of the box it's a bit weak as a basic handheld it's limited to the size of the factory antenna.

Price: $80.00
Pros: Weather channels
Cons: Just about everything.
Recommended? No

Comments: The radio has 40 channels, weather channels, volume, squelch, RF gain, and a dual watch feature. There is always a lot of electrical interference with this radio. The mic screws onto the unit which is nice while wheeling so you don't accidentally unplug.
