Handy and study

 

This is very durable and looks good on the shelf. I have some reception issues but I am pretty sure that is just ongoing reception living in an urban environment.

Strong and smart

 

This is the best bathroom radio out there--long battery life and good enough reception for news updates, plus water resistant. We own two of them--one for each bathroom!

I keep buying this radio!

 

We use this in the shower but while we never spray water directly on it, this is our third unit. They only last us about 18 to 24 months then something quits working. The touch pad on top quit on us on our first one then the volume knob quit working on...

love this radio

 

After my husband received his - I decided that I\'d like one too. Since we just remodeled both bathrooms I think I will like listening to "oldies" as I shower. Love how it looks also.
