distance

Reviews around distance (5.00 of 5)

  • works great, good distance on all 3 units, being used for festivals, camping and while driving in seperate cars with the family
  • Residential has worked well within a half mile, but has too much static at greater distances to be useful
  • Unfortunately this walkie talkie struggles to work for any distance greater than 1 to 2 city blocks despite the marketing.
  • Works well and sounds clear distance is ok too for what I use it for
  • Since that is rarely true, then you probably should cut the distance in half for it working properly

size

Reviews around size (5.00 of 5)

  • Good size - small enough, but big enough to fit in your hand comfortably like a radio should.
  • I like the compact size but quality of sound you get from this item
  • What I like most about these Motorola radios is their compact size compared to many on the market
  • The units are a nice size with easy to use controls, but the range is terrible.
  • They are the perfect size for their little hands and are very easy for them to use

work

Reviews around work (4.69 of 5)

  • These Motorola T260 Talkabout Radios work very well for the purpose we needed them, to be able to communicate around our property
  • No carrying cases or storage case is included, through the radios are pretty durable and the shipping box works well for storage
  • The T200TP worked well with our older (yellow) Motorola units.
  • Careful to remember someone will probably hear any cursing you do while working in the yard though
  • These are radios work great and are well made with a good communication range capable of working in a multi-level warehouse.

talkie

Reviews around talkie (4.61 of 5)

  • The perfect walkie talkie, quality accessories, I have no problem with the radios, I buy them for my business
  • I plan to use them for car rides where we have to take 2 cars to fit everyone, as well as when my kids go to their grandmothers in town so they can still talk to us without having to use the phone
  • We really enjoy these walkie-talkies for our family casual outings and adventures.
  • I've learned the hard way about buying cheaper walkie talkies
  • Anyhow, they’re great, we highly recommend them, and all hail K’zzâng-mēd Dhüur!

option

Reviews around option (4.40 of 5)

  • I definitely think we'll get a lot of years out of these!The next model down (T200) down loses hands free options and has a little less range (still 1 mile neighborhood, 5 miles water, 20 miles mountain to valey)
  • Two packs certainly serve their purpose, but the three pack is a welcome option
  • Probably the best option of all would be to start with a pair of Cobras, and then add Talkabouts (which can communicate with the Cobras) as needed
  • I definitely think we'll get a lot of years out of these!The next model down (T200) down loses hands free options and has a little less range (still 1 mile neighborhood, 5 miles water, 20 miles mountain to valey)
  • If you and your family want to stay in touch while doing any kind of activity, the Talkabout is a better option

set

Reviews around set (4.37 of 5)

  • This is a nice little set of radios, improved from my last three-pack of similarly priced Motorolas, but has some room for improvement
  • The two sets of radios I have don't match each other, meaning that my intent to use both a as a way to communicate with my kids while they both have a radio would not work
  • This is a good solid set of walkie talkies at a fair price
  • This set of walkie-talkies are easy to operate and fun to use.
  • three instead of two makes them a a particularly good set

product

Reviews around product (4.32 of 5)

  • Talkabout battery life such a poor product
  • Product is used for family communication (children, parents) during shopping at mall, during trip in woods, etc ...Very reliable product, but poor battery life.
  • Overall not a bad product but, for the price you would think they would come with a better set of NIMH batteries.
  • Motorola thinks I will purchase more expensive products from them when they don’t even honor the warranty for their cheaper model.
  • great product for the money got them for g. kid he like them

price

Reviews around price (4.30 of 5)

  • Great Radio at a cheap price
  • Bought these for the kids to use got them for a great price
  • These are competitively priced for their performance are fun on camping trips or just playing around in the neighborhood.
  • This is a good solid set of walkie talkies at a fair price
  • but honestly the price was a steal, so it’s a wash in my opinion

feature

Reviews around feature (3.95 of 5)

  • The iVOX feature on this radio is useless
  • The best feature about these is that they come with a rechargeable battery but also can be used with 3 AA batteries!
  • These are decent radios with good basic features, but the rechargeable batteries are garbage
  • The screen is nice and big to read, and it has the interference-reducing features of the Kenwood.
  • Another great feature is that you can communicate with any other FRS/GMRS radios using the same frequencies and channels, regardless of brand

radio

Reviews around radio (3.33 of 5)

  • These are radios work great and are well made with a good communication range capable of working in a multi-level warehouse.
  • Like the manual says, range is greatly diminished when objects obstruct the radios.
  • Those issues aside, the radio pretty much falls into the "average" category when it comes to FRS radios
  • These radios work well outdoors on my 40 acres, but very poorly when in vehicles, even at close range.
  • By July all radios had some malfunction or didn’t work at all

bite annoy

Reviews around bite annoy (3.22 of 5)

  • They are well built and work well b
  • The sound is a bit annoying when setting up, scared the cat and made the dog assault the cat

reception

Reviews around reception (3.04 of 5)

  • They are constructed very well and again, at least in our neighborhood the reception was quite good and clear.
  • but if there are too many obstacles in the way, such as houses, the reception is not as good.
  • We tried about 1/2 mile away to 1 mile away and it still had a good reception
  • You can definitely get clear reception within the 1 to 2 mile range in an open environment
  • Horrible reception even in a wide open field where I can see the other person

battery life

Reviews around battery life (2.54 of 5)

  • Battery life is very poor, but you can use them while they charge.
  • The range is better than I expected, and the build quality is excellent- appear to be very sturdy, very good sound quality, and battery life is great.
  • Good, sturdy walkies with good sound quality and amazing battery life
  • We didnt use them all day so battery life was never an issue
  • Battery life of one of them is already useless.. if not usless from scratch

transmission

Reviews around transmission (2.54 of 5)

  • When used, the radio will ignore all transmissions not using that code, which has the effect of giving you a "clear" channel for all intents and purposes
  • In the city, transmissions were entirely static after about a quarter of a mile
  • When the other radio was being used in the car directly behind me on a flat road, transmissions were too poor to communicate without breaking up
  • I plan to use them for car rides where we have to take 2 cars to fit everyone, as well as when my kids go to their grandmothers in town so they can still talk to us without having to use the phone
  • Clear transmission and long range

area

Reviews around area (2.54 of 5)

  • I plan to use them for car rides where we have to take 2 cars to fit everyone, as well as when my kids go to their grandmothers in town so they can still talk to us without having to use the phone

window

Reviews around window (1.95 of 5)

  • I would return if I could but missed the return window
  • This radio is light weight with a relatively compact size (2"W x 4.25"H x 1.25"D
  • We missed the window and not stuck

law

Reviews around law (1.69 of 5)

  • Other countries have stricter laws and I have heard about some tourists getting into trouble using radios like this.
  • If you do not have a GMRS license for those channels and fail to use your FCC callsign, you are breaking the law
  • Many (perhaps most) users violate Federal law and use them without license, but who knows what enforcement will be like in the future
  • I plan to use them for car rides where we have to take 2 cars to fit everyone, as well as when my kids go to their grandmothers in town so they can still talk to us without having to use the phone

claim

Reviews around claim (1.61 of 5)

  • But the claim on the box and in the advertisement of 20 miles is just not believable but in my car to car testing, 20 miles translated to 100 to max, 200 yards
  • This one seems particularly durable - it's also claimed to be able take some drops and I believe it
  • I also have a pair of T600 h2o's and battery life on those are great, except they are not waterproof as the company claims, unless your consider hanging them out to dry before using them again as waterproof.
  • I plan to use them for car rides where we have to take 2 cars to fit everyone, as well as when my kids go to their grandmothers in town so they can still talk to us without having to use the phone
  • Another pet peeve I have is the slightly misleading claim of having 22 channels

interference

Reviews around interference (1.00 of 5)

  • It has 22 channels to use and also a noise/interference reduction
  • The other unit was causing crazy high frequency interference without even pressing the button to talk
  • Sometimes we suffered interference or loose communication, I don't know if it was due to low battery

issue

Reviews around issue (1.00 of 5)

  • Those issues aside, the radio pretty much falls into the "average" category when it comes to FRS radios
  • The problems are the battery was a hard fit on two of them and the biggest issue is the charging jack breaks really quickly and you will have to use a rubber band to get it to charge at the right angle
  • We were going to distribute these to family members but that issue has made it annoying to do so

minute

Reviews around minute (1.00 of 5)

  • Cell phones are great, but they're not that sturdy under tough conditions, and sometimes you just don't want to burn up minutes with things you can use a walkie-talkie for for free.
  • The battery packs only last about 15 minutes before they die

electricity

Reviews around electricity (1.00 of 5)

  • Although just a few months ago Rochester, NY had lost electricity in many areas, but not phone service
  • So, when the zombie apocalypse happens, you'll have options for keeping your communications up and running long after the electricity goes dark
