I've got one, its OK for the money, nothing exceptional. Receiver is sensitive, but prone to picking up all sorts of noise.

There's some reviews here and here, and a fair few videos on Youtube.

They're a lottery in my opinion. I had one and it was very sensitive. The receive audio sounded terrible though, even with an external speaker. It sounded like a really low bit rate mp3, just really mushy and hard to listen to. I gave the radio to a friend whose VV898 bricked itself for no apparent reason.
