Best value on pmr legal radios would have to be these why they can be had for around £6
, hotukdeals.com/dea…892 work as good as any pmr radios and because they use AA batteries ( most use AAA ) you can get some good high capacity batteries in there.

Best looking pmr radios would have to be the binatone 1100 radios with there digital display and an appealing design and probably have the slight edge on range compared to most other pmr radios.

Other than that my favourite radios are the baofang 888s, look like professional radios and come with charger and battery. The range is about 20% more than your standard pmr radios, You can get a pair for around £20 on Amazon or ebay etc, just make sure they ship from UK. Only down side is they come with frequencies that are not licence free, although you can get a cable to connect to your of and reprogram them to the licence free per channels.

These are brilliant and if you use the pmr frequencies then there is no problem. AFAIK Ofcom have never fined anyone for using one of these on PMR Frequencies. They don't care about M3/M6 amateur radio licence holders transmitting 400watts so I can't see how a small radio on 4 watts could annoy anyone on 446 Mhz

They are also good for listening in on your local amateur radio repeater.

Maybe not a good idea for kids incase they change the frequency though,

PMR Channel - Frequency (MHz)
1 446.00625
2 446.01875
3 446.03125
4 446.04375
5 446.05625
6 446.06875
7 446.08125
8 446.09375

Edit.. Plus you don't need to program them, just use the keypad.

You cannot use them in the UK as the antenna is removable which is not allowed for PMR

LOL Imagine getting stopped by the police "Exchuse me sir, is that a removable antenna I see on that radio?" .

Thousands of people use them in the UK and nobody has ever got into any bother using them on PMR. I know that locally a few people are using these frequencies with outdoor antennas on 20ft poles.

I actually got the Floureon deal because at less than £6 I thought it rude not to. That deal then prompted me to hunt out my old BaoFeng BF-888s. This then lead to a discussion with a friend about Chinese walkies and I mentioned that the UV-5R was the step up from from my BF-888s. This person then started looking at Chinese radios and mentioned that the UV-82 was apparently a step up from the UV-5R and was available from Bangood for £19.03. So although I have no reason to have these radios at the moment I went and ordered a UV-82 for myself.
