Yeah, not the best looking radio, was playing with one last week. It changes several different colors, but I noticed the lights create a humming noise on the radio.

I think it is a nice looking radio. I have never been picky on what a radio looks like though. I like to customize them & stuff, but don’t really care what it looks like for the most part, as long as it plays pretty good & does what I need it to do.

The only bad part I can see is that it is an AM / FM only radio, that’s the only reason I would not want to get one, no SSB :icon_e_sad: , they may have an SSB version, I don’t know. I like the lighting options though.

I guess that’s what makes people different; we all have different opinions & like different stuff.

It is definitely unique looking though; this is the first time I have seen one.

I consider a waste of money, especially no ssb with all that money put out. Youc can buy a used hf transceiver for $350 and have all the frequencies....

Wow the comments here! Our distributors have ordered lots of these radios and banking on them to boost sales. I think it would ruin thier Christmas if they read this thread! One of them even displayed the new radio on utube so the ducks would order before Christmas and help thier bottm line. But as they say--supply and demand.

i started this thred and i knew there would be alot of guys that felt the same as i do about this radio but we all know there is at the least 3 suckers out there for every 1 of us and the bad thing is that this junk is going to sale just for one reson its NEW and you arent going to see anything like it out there on the road

A buddy of mine who is also on here - grocery hauler - has just purchased one of the new connex 3400 hp radios. He also has some cobras and a general lee. So far he is very happy with this radio. It has more features and puts out more than his general. In my opinion it is louder and more clear than his general also. He did say that the lights are very bright even on medium setting. On low brightness he says its perfect. And it is not a lot more pricey than the generals. I am looking at one for my collection as well. One reason because of it being unique, the other is cuz I just want one.

It reminds me of the Texas Star Amp's...It has allot of flashy gadgets to attract customers, like the Big meter, lighted buttons, different color lights, and in the long run, the person on the other end is not going to know it from any other radio...Lights or no lights. I know allot of Truckers who like the "Bling-Thing" tho..."Chrome & Bling" and you get their $$$!

If it's anything like the Stryker Radio's...Even on dim, at night those light's will get annoying.
