This pet system is good at functioning, the only thing which is different in this deal is the batteries. You get two extra packs of batteries and E-book free. Performance wise, the product is good, but you can opt for other higher range products for the same brand. I would recommend this product for mid-range investors, who just want a good product nothing else. However the deal do have its up and down, like batteries are not up to the mark. If you use the equipment, you will find some range fluctuations, but that is common due to obstacles.
