While I think it is an interesting little rig, personally I would stick to the radios I have. I don't feel the equipment is on par with the better known brands like Motorola, Kenwood, and Icom. Especially since I can get any of the three for less than the asking price of the 50x1 ($180+tax & shipping.)

Just for the record, If bought direct from Btech, $161 (using their 10% discount)
No tax (at least to Wa state)
Free shipping.

But I would not make a decision about this or anything for 20$.

That radio isn't technically legal because it's dual band, right? I'm asking for a friend.......

Yes, it’s part 95E compliant. In addition to it being a GMRS transceiver, it’s a receiver for other frequencies.
