They work well enough, and considering the price they exceed expectations. We got a set of four, with charging bases. Two were for our girls, age ten and eleven, and we (the parents) kept two for ourselves. As we live on a horse farm, and the girls like to help out and play in the woods, these little talk boxes are perfect for us. They'll cover all ten acres, plus the wooded area around the house, but the 27 mile advertised range is a bit silly, but we knew that going in to purchase them. Maybe you'd get all 27 miles out in the Great Plains or in a perfectly cleared mountain valley, but Motorola should re-list the range to Optimal and Realistic. They're easy to use and the flashlight adds another layer of safety (though they drain the battery relatively quickly) and fun.
A good feature is that we can leave our unit on and in the charger and still receive communications from the girls, but without running down the battery. I think that for the price and features included, you cannot beat these talk boxes. They'll last about 6-8 hours on standby and they'll give about three hours of heavy usage. Better than some cellphones I've had over the years! I'm quite happy with them and I imagine that you will be too!
Over and out.
