If you go to china, you can buy it for 1/3 of the price.
I doubt it has good quality.

These are great. I used to use them as a kid. You can press a button and talk to someone without using 2 cans and a string.

Any idea of the range of these?

None of the Amazon reviews mention anything about range...

I want to use these while traveling - vehicle to vehicle. I've been looking for some decent set of walkie-talkies for a bit, but none have any decent range that I've found. If I cannot see the other vehicle visually, it's nearly impossible to hear any clear communication. And even if it's visible, but a bit far away (still line of sight), I get the same result.

Would these have any better results?

Refreshing the page did nothing before. I just tried again and it still says $60.99.

Here's a UV-B6 for $38.50 shipped free [amazon.com]. I have a UV-B5, and it works great - not too hard to program, especially with a programming cable.
