Reviews around reception (4.47 of 5)

  • 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.
  • I had bought an inexpensive radio from a big-box store but it was shoddy, poor reception, poor quality sound
  • The reception is good and the sound great for such a small radio, better than larger old portable radios I have.
  • While the speaker quality is acceptable such a poor reception is very disappointing
  • I listen to AM radio at night and the reception is good

Reviews around price (4.17 of 5)

  • 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
  • Station pre-sets and digital display make this well worth the price
  • 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
  • Summarizing - A good small radio well worth its modest price ($42 on sale for me)

Reviews around control (3.99 of 5)

  • Reception is excellent in my area, the manual is very clear and the controls very intuitive
  • 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.
  • We like the Sangean RCR-22 atomic clock radio we bought from Amazon a while ago, despite its somewhat funky controls
  • This is a nice radio EXCEPT because the silly volume control...from level 0 (mute) to level 1 = too loud to listen in a quiet
  • There is a lockout switch on the back that disables the front controls.

Reviews around station (3.25 of 5)

  • That said, the sound is great on some stations, and just cross your finger that your favorite station is one which comes in clearly.
  • 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.
  • I wanted one that didn't have "bleed over" from other stations with my favorite station as my older one did.
  • This radio simply does not pick up stations well in my location
  • Good sound, has the ability to preset your favorite stations and picks up stations easily.

  • Not a C Crane model at double the price, but adequate
  • I did not like the low constant background noise like static
  • I needed a basic radio for my office at work because I like background noise
  • I can use the radio during the day when the volume can be louder than the background noise.
