If you do not already have one, it is recommended you get a programming cable for $5.
The CS750 (UHF) and the CS751 (VHF) is the first DMR radios designed for the HAM market. We started with a commercial grade piece of hardware and then added firmware unique to the HAM market.
We have 2000 channels, twice the number of our competitors. We have 65380 contacts which is about sixty five times more than our competitors. Then we have features such as support for the visually handicapped, a special monitor mode where you will be able to hear everyone on that channel regardless if the call is a group call or a private call or uses a Rx Contact or color code you have not been told in advance. Then there is full keypad programming and a host of other features too numerous to describe here.
Each radio come with the following:
3. Battery Charger
4. Power Supply for Battery Charger
6. Battery Clip

A terrific radio, great audio, good signal reports both analog and digital. Well made. The display is easy to read. At first the programming instructions were unclear but once you become familiar with DMR terminology, it makes sense.

I purchased the CS-750 on a friends recommendation for Amateur Radio DMR and I am pleased with this radio. I had my local Code Plug programmed into the radio and it works very well except on one item. The PTT Button has to be pushed in a certain way to ensure that I am actually transmitting.
The housing is solid and it fits great into my hand. The display is big enough and the backlight works well, even when a receiving station is transmitting (where I can see the station callsign). This is a good starter radio for someone looking to get into DMR and not pay a high price. It also is not a "cheap" radio in its construction. The battery life is excellent to especially on low-power.

This radio does a lot. I will have to study the manual to learn. Has great sound and this radio is the best compared to D-Star and Icom. A great radio for the money.

Solidly built radio and the price is reasonable. Easy to use and the programming software is easy to figure out as well. Wish I had bought this radio a long time ago.

Although I am new to DMR, I have purchased several HT radios in the past. This rig is very well made for the money, it was shipped very sturdily and included a programing cable.

A great entry level radio for the DMR absolute beginner like me. Sounds great and has a good "feel" and the right size and shape for a handheld. Fits in shirt pocket so no need to use a pesky belt clip (included with radio). Use your pc to peek at the code plug contents and a few minutes of poking on the front panel controls will have you operating this radio like a pro. There are NO instructions on HOW TO program the radio with the initial code plug so you will need to obtain one from someone else that already has a working radio. Must buy the extra cost USB programming cable separately since one is not included with the radio. It is very difficult if not impossible to do any programming without that cable. Overall I am pleased with the radio and its performance.

Nice radio, easy to use. I was able to get on the air without even looking at the manual. DMR is easy to program.

I am relatively new to DMR, and, like many others, took the least expensive radio to start with - an MD-380. It worked pretty well. I kept reading reviews and people's comments on the Yahoo groups about the CS-750. I thought it sounded like a great radio, but the price was just too much more for me to make the purchase. Well, they put it on sale for Black Friday at a very enticing price. I bowed to the temptation, and am really glad I did. This radio is so solidly built, and really is a professional grade radio. A world of difference in the construction and fit/finish from the less expensive radios. The software and the operation of the radio are light years better than my other, less expensive DMR radio.
Obviously, I am thrilled with the purchase, and really impressed with CSI as a company. Jerry is always available with a phone call or an email for help. That is support you will never find with the other radios anywhere near the price.
Can't say enough good stuff!
