The truth is that they are stupidly cheap, but surprisingly good. Glad you're fixed up.

They are worth the money and look like "proper" radios. To be fair in my experience they only perform on par with a lot of PMR446 sets when it comes to range, even though the 888 has more power than the half a watt on 446. It does not compare to a popular proper handheld, like the Motorola GP320, Motorola GP340, Motorola GP360 or other UHF radios such as Icom, Kenwood, Yaesu etc.
