Reviews around product (4.67 of 5)

  • Overall, this is a very nice product if you're in the market for a small portable radio.
  • I have considered retuning it several times because its alarm and a/c are losers; keeping it because the digital radio tunes in one local station (WDNA 88.9 FM jazz) that usually is lost because of crowded, dirty bandwidth.
  • Product was dead after 2 months - not sure why
  • This is the third Sangean radio that I have purchased and it is an excellent product line.

Reviews around reception (4.47 of 5)

  • I have tried many AM radios and always have had a problem with poor reception
  • I bought this radio because it was supposed to have good reception.
  • While the speaker quality is acceptable such a poor reception is very disappointing
  • Nice radio but AM reception is not as good as I had hoped.
  • This radio is a bit pricey but has great sound, is sturdy and picks up quite a few stations for being inside concrete and cinderblock in a very rural area, it has attracted quite the attention from co-workers because radios here get very poor reception.

Reviews around price (4.17 of 5)

  • All things considered, this feels like a $15 radio, so Amazon’s actual price of $43 seems pretty steep for what you get.
  • Based on the solid price the overall AM & FM sound is above average
  • I got mine for $42 at the time of purchase and that is a fair price for how good this radio is
  • I have considered retuning it several times because its alarm and a/c are losers; keeping it because the digital radio tunes in one local station (WDNA 88.9 FM jazz) that usually is lost because of crowded, dirty bandwidth.
  • And since I was going to put it in the corner and forget about it, I did not want to pay the hefty price tag for a Tivoli or similar

Reviews around station (3.25 of 5)

  • That's why I have these two radios, as I live some distance from my favorite radio stations.
  • It locks onto every station I’ve tried on both AM and FM even weak stations in the crowded bands of the SF Bay Area
  • There are some weak AM stations in my metro area that most of my radios don't pick up, but this one does with no problem.
  • Too bad most radio stations have too many commercials, and real dumb talk show host.
  • This radio simply does not pick up stations well in my location
