Dp 2400 hands on review

Editorial – Motorola seem to be churning out 2 way radios like they are sweets nowadays, the digital revolution has truly given Motorola a second wind and it seems, as usual, pushing the boundaries of the two-way communication market. This modern two way radio the Motorola dp2400, is full fat digital and having tried it for a few weeks it’s very related size to numerous other of the present walkie talkies, but having a different connection type. The shape is very like other modern radios, but we think the purchase price will make a tremendous difference to small businesses and individuals, anyway here’s a very rare review of the walkie talkie.

A walkie talkie has to be in a position to work promptly and effectively. They have to be straightforward to work with, robustly designed and multi-faceted enough to appeal to many different people. Fortunately, Motorola are very, very good at fulfilling these criteria. So, with that at heart, we put the Motorola dp2400 through its paces.

THE SPECS

The clarity of digital audio is indisputable. But if you still prefer analogue, then don’t despair. The DP 2400 is totally comfortable handling both analogue and digital signals.

But there’s a lot more it can do besides that.

The Dp2400 can even use its ‘IP Site Connect’ function to open out the capability of the device via the Internet. In addition, the ‘capacity plus’ function can use just one-site trunking system to allow over a thousand voice or data transfer-users without adding any new frequencies. It could even use an (optional) ‘linked capacity plus’ feature (a multi-site version of that ‘capacity plus’ function) that works in tandem using the IP functionality to ensure even broader fields of communication over larger areas.

There’s even an enhanced security function.

The Motorola DP 2400 is available in both VHF and UHF types.

THE PRICE

It’s much reasonable, yet high spec, device. Considering the release of that Motorola dp3400, we can reasonably expect the price to drop a bit more also soon, but probably not by an implausible amount, as both models do seems to specialize in slightly different niches’.

Overall, it does seem like Motorola are offering a good radio-based product for your hard earned money, yet again.

THE PERFORMANCE

The design is hardy and utilitarian; this will be the type of radio a security guard or professional soldier might use. Its tough, square edged and no-nonsense, but it still looks contemporary and specialist. On top of this, the DP 2400’s easy use makes the simplicity of the design an ideal marriage of model and operation.

Like nearly all of Motorola’s radios, the Motorola dp2400 is a tough little doohickey. The bodywork is so tightly sealed, in fact, that it’s almost completely dust and sand proof and features a water protection rating of IP55 (which means you can use it while in the rain, but you most likely can’t take it swimming).

The audio performance of the DP 2400 is nothing short of wonderful. It even adjusts the levels to compensate for background noise automatically, much like the iphone.

Actually, so high performance is this two way radio, that it essentially meets US military standard 810 C D E F and G.

The only negative we could find was that the look was somewhat bulky and also the battery was slightly heavy, however, the battery life is so good that we really don’t mind. Besides, it’s reassuring to be completely sure that you simply aren’t about to lose the product (you’d soon notice if you dropped it).

As an optional extra, you can even get a function that will interrupt an existing signal so they can deliver critical information without waiting for a message finish.

THE VERDICT

It really does seem as if Motorola have considered everything for this walkie talkie. What we’ve got here is a two way radio that is pretty close to perfection. It appears to do everything you could possibly want it to and, when ‘pimped out’ with all the added extras, it will surely do a lot more in addition.

There aren’t really any downsides with this product, it works tremendously well, is pretty much top of the line in its price range and is bang up to date technically. What more can you ask for?
