Superb HT  Time owned: more than 12 months
P25 is rare here in the UK, but we bought some from the USA for UK 70cms use, along with our Astro Spectra's.
Ours are full original tags, FPP UHF 380-470 P25 types with a good flashcode, both are model 3 full keypad sets, and they're simply superb.
You can see why first responders and other Emergency service types use them .. the quality.
Nothing i can type here would do justice to the quality of these sets or their features, just to say they're the best HT's available that we could afford without selling an arm, kidney or mortgaging the cat. again. The receiver is (almost literally) bulletproof & nicely sensitive. full TX/RX in DSP on FM and P25, MDC, Astro 25 digital, and encryption we cant use on Ham :( speaker audio is loud, full and clear on both modes
TX is solid too. 1700maH battery lasts well, professional equipment.

only niggles:
cant find decent full body size leather case.
backlight is poor.
if you want quality - look at the XTS ... prob avoid anything from China though.

Product is in production.
