Deal is at Radioddity - Baofeng UV-5R Plus for $29.99 (Free Shipping).

Hat tip to the Reddit post.

  1. Found out that Radioddity sells blemishes that BaoFeng won't... They told me that sometimes it is normal for a radio not to work (won't even power on) and that I could get my money back or a new one if I sent it back to them... IN CHINA (it was over $30 just to ship it back) - They got me.. So I am not sure if it is wise to share on your blog about a Chinese scam company?

    1. I sent them a note asking if these are refurb or second quality. I'll see what they say. Sorry you are having a bad experience with them. This is the first negative comment I've seen about Radioddity.

    2. They had tons of negative feedback on their facebook page when I posted on it too... its all removed and commenting is disabled now

      baofeng@263.net (Baofeng radio directly on powerphone.com.cn) are the ones that told me that sainsonic (maybe radiodditys owners or manager?) are buying at lower prices blemishes which is why they sell lower - I don't even trust buying anything Baofeng until I find an honest seller

    4. My Amazon search box? I just tested it and it worked for me. Does it throw an error?

    5. Yes your box. I just tried to use it again. Says Amazon search but with no logo and the click on doesn't do anything for me. I tried with IE and firefox and refreshed the page a couple of times. Just seems non-clickable at least for me.

  3. I have purchased a few radios from this company. My GT-3 had an issues. Exchanged a few emails with them and i did not have to send anything back to china. My RMA was here in the states and they did an advanced replacement for me no less. Nothing i purchased looked like 2nd's or blems. Yes they are a shady by not saying that the radios FOB from china but other then that i think they are ok.

  4. I got a reply from Radioddity quite some time ago - sorry for my delay in posting. They reply:

    "Radioddity sell the orginal baofeng radios and is the official distributor of BaoFeng Electronics. You can see this information on BaoFeng official website, http://www.baofengradio.com/en/shownews.asp?id=28
    That will be clear to show our partnership with BaoFeng mang years."
