unit

Reviews around unit (3.72 of 5)

  • I gotta say, this unit is built super solid and I really like how it functions.
  • Not as clear as a powered unit, of course now that I think of it, I believe I had left it on 1watt instead of 5watt.
  • I wasted $200 on these fragile units, not rugged at all
  • In the meantime, other than a very awkward belt clip stud that I have removed, the unit is pretty good.
