Good card, Great value, better than Xfired 270Xs.

 

Tuner is good and can pick up weak stations

When the sound is of a certain frequency the plastic grill of the case resonates - very annoying

Sangean RCR-5

 

This is a very nice, compact am/fm clock radio. This model has excellent fm reception with hard wired single pole antenna. The am is helped with a terk am advantage placed next to radio. Highly recommended.

None to mention.

Good product, Worth the money

 

Don't know how I functioned without the humane waking system before I owned this radio..no more jolting awake. Adjustable brightness level is a great feature... Bravo Sangean... When you think about it, an alarm clock is something you use EVERY day.....

Humane Waking System, adjustable brightness level, intuitive and well thought out, Nice quality,

Nice Unit

 

This is a nice unit that I bought a couple weeks ago. It was on sale so I paid less than the current list. It replaced the Radio Shack unit we had used for years which had a pretty crummy FM radio in it. This units radio works and sounds a lot...

Great Multi-tasking clock radio

 

Very good sound for a clock radio. Dual alarm function is awesome. No more setting it every night. I have it set to go off Mon - Fri mornings and will probably use the second alarm for something else ; It also serves as speakers for my Walkman and at...

The 10 minute back up is silly. I don't understand why they limited it to that. It appears the back up battery is "built in" and cannot be replaced. I guess that's why the 10 minute max, to extend the life of the battery ; Also, I love the nightlight...
