Reviews around setup (5.00 of 5)

  • Setup was relatively easy although I couldn't tell if the s.a.m.e. technology did anything.
  • Again, I fully accept the problem could be on my end, but I'm not a dumb person, and if it really is a setup problem, well, OK
  • Setup took me like what...a minute or two tops?Literally took me longer to find 3AA batteries for the back-up power than to set it up
  • The unit came in new condition, and the setup was easy to complete in 10 minutes--from unpacking to programming to operating

Reviews around product (4.59 of 5)

  • Very nice product for the price; picks up alerts from all surrounding areas to keep us informed on breaking severe weather; highly recommend everyone has an alert radio!
  • But, for the money, I would still recommend this product since this annoyance has only happened once and it does alert the user to the fact that the radio may not be receiving alert signals.
  • I write reviews when I noticeably appreciate a product.
  • The seller was great, but the product itself is horrible!!
  • A good product, especially if you live in a area where bad storms hit.

Reviews around advertise (4.44 of 5)

  • The radio didn't work at all as it is supposed to
  • That's where a weather radio comes in; you don't have to worry as actively about severe-looking weather because NOAA will sort it out for you
  • Works as it should and alerted us to a weather advisory the other night.
  • Seems to work as advertised although I was disappointed when I read their book that it is a base station and not a travel station as it would have to be reprogramed for every layover.

Reviews around feature (4.19 of 5)

  • The coolest feature I liked was that you can also turn off the the voice but still have the radio light up if an alert is turned on such as a flood watch/warning
  • We really need a weather alert radio with a better feature set
  • That's where a weather radio comes in; you don't have to worry as actively about severe-looking weather because NOAA will sort it out for you

Reviews around reception (3.34 of 5)

  • works good, pick up reception is better than the one it replaces.
  • Previously, I had a weather radio which, when I set the dial, I had to continuously reset the dial because I would lose reception.
  • can't get good reception, can't understand what is being said.
  • I live 16 miles away ("as the crow flies") from the NOAA antenna and I can barely get the live weather radio report so I am not sure why the reception would be so bad on
  • Works well and has good reception even when the antenna isn't extended

  • Some alerts cannot be turned off, such as tornado warning (if you wanted to turn off tornado warning, why would you waste money on a weather radio?).

  • But during severe weather alerts that flash across my TV.

Reviews around siren (1.86 of 5)

  • The big benefit of the B/EZ model is that you can disable the siren on certain types of alarms.
  • Easy to set to weather station, and has REALLY LOUD warning sirens for updates.
  • Though, one thing I don't like about this model is that the siren is SO loud
  • This is where the weather radio shines and protects my family and I during dangerous times.
  • I found the siren settings easy enough to change without reading the instructions, and I was able to see my settings in action almost immediately since storms rolled though the area on the day I received this weather radio.

Reviews around tone (1.77 of 5)

  • One can choose between loud alert tone, voice, and silent text
  • The alert tone is very loud and wakes me up out of a deep sleep
  • Tone is loud and there are different tones for warnings, watches, and advisories
  • I just wanted the voice alert, since the tone is horribly loud
  • I like the radio, but the alert tone is too loud and not adjustable.

Reviews around tornado warning (1.72 of 5)

  • The radio will receive audible alerts for the tornado warnings."
  • We assumed it was a safety feature to not be able to turn off tornado warnings
  • Some such as a Tornado Warning cannot be disabled on this radio, but this is the same for any weather radio
  • (The only warnings that are "mandatory" are the tornado warnings which is how I have mine set up.)

Reviews around test (1.66 of 5)

  • I would recommend testing the big "Weather" button every week to confirm it's working.
  • Despite all troubleshooting and positive test results, it never issued an audible warning.
  • Only drawback is the weekly test alarm that scares the heck out of you if you are not prepared.
  • The weekly test is a bit annoying, especially when it goes off twice in one day
  • The alarm is loud and will wake me up, I also like how I can disable weekly tests from waking me up, but allowing storms and floods to wake me up

Reviews around storm (1.52 of 5)

  • While camping several storms did come through and this worked just fine
  • The day after I received it we had severe storms come through the area and never missed an alert
  • You need this radio if you live in areas that get severe storms.
  • We rely on this radio since electricity and satellite goes out with all bad storms!!

Reviews around power (1.49 of 5)

  • Stopped alerting, stopped doing anything but sucking power out of the wall
  • Battery back up is nice option so you don't lose your settings if you lose power
  • This has delivered peace of mind for me, and with the battery backup, I'm confident that even if we lose power we will be able to get important weather alerts.
  • Around my area, we lose power a lot, so this was pretty nice
  • The only added feature that I miss is that the old radio I had could take rechargable batteries and charge them while you had power, jumping to them when you'd lose power – this unit doesn't charge a rechargable battery.

Reviews around beep (1.00 of 5)

  • The radio has a loud beeping alert followed by an announcement about any watches/warnings
  • Everything is great except that no matter the alert type you set (voice, display, voice) it still blaring an loud obnoxious beeping.
  • and I would have nothing but positive comments (easy to set up, it's loud and clear, has a bright display, etc) but for one irritating feature; if the radio does not receive an alert signal at least every 10 days it will start this annoying beep every few minutes and THE ONLY
