DP2400 hands-on assessment

Editors note – Motorola look that they are getting out radios like they’re just sweets these days, the digital revolution has truly given Motorola a second wind and they are, as customary, pushing the boundaries of the radio marketplace. This recent 2 way radio the Dp 2400, is full fat digital and having tried it for a few weeks it’s very comparable size to numerous other of the modern two way radios, but having a different connection variety. The form is very like other modern two way radios, but we think the price will make a massive differentiation to small companies and individuals, anyway here’s a very rare appraisal of that two way radio.

A walkie talkie has to be able to work quickly and effectively. They have to be simple to use, robustly made and multi-faceted enough to appeal to many different users. Luckily, Motorola are very excellent at fulfilling these standards. So, with that in mind, we put the Dp2400 through its paces.

THE SPECS

The clarity of digital audio is undeniable. But if you still prefer analogue, then do not despair. The Dp2400 is completely at ease handling both analogue and digital frequencies.

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

The Dp2400 can even use its ‘IP Site Connect’ function to increase the aptitude of the radio via the Internet. Additionally, the ‘capacity plus’ function can use a single-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 the ‘capacity plus’ function) that works in tandem using the IP functionality to make sure even broader fields of communication over bigger distances.

There’s even an enhanced security function.

The Motorola Dp2400 comes in both VHF and UHF forms.

THE PRICE

This is a reasonable, yet high spec, device. Considering the release of the Motorola dp3400, we are able to reasonably expect the purchase price to drop a little more as well soon, but probably not by an incredible amount, as both models do seems to specialize in slightly different areas.

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

THE PERFORMANCE

The design is hardy and practical; this is a type of radio a security guard or professional soldier might use. Its tough, square edged and no-nonsense, but it really still looks modern and professional. On top of this, the DP 2400’s ease of use makes the simplicity of that design a perfect marriage of model and operation.

Like nearly all of Motorola’s designs, the DP 2400 is a robust little doohickey. The bodywork is so tightly sealed, in fact, that it’s almost completely dust and sand proof and includes a water protection rating of IP55 (which means you can use it in the rain, but you almost certainly can’t take it snorkelling).

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

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

A common negative we could find was that the look was somewhat bulky and 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 are not going to lose the product (you would soon notice if you ever dropped it).

As an optional extra, you are able to even get a function which will interrupt an existing signal so they can deliver vital information without waiting for a communication terminate.

THE VERDICT

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

There aren’t actually any downsides with this walkie talkie, it works awfully well, is pretty much top of the line in its value range and is bang up to date mechanically. What more can you ask for?
