just OK

 

I use it at home. I can't get rid of a slight background static. Moving the antenna doesn't seem to affect it. I can still use the radio OK but I expected the sound quality to be better.

Durable, Lightweight

Poor Sound Quality

Very low quality

 

I was looking to add a digital AM/FM radio mostly for the AM. While I wasn't expecting anything fancy for [$] this was pretty weak. It came with a chip in the plastic handle. It takes 3 d cell batteries. It can't hold memory. When I turn the radio on...

Bulky

Consumer review by:

An excellent portable

 

This is a great portable for use during power outages. The NOAA feature is quite valuable for severe weather warnings. I recommend this radio highly to anyone who wants a full-featured portable radio.

An excellent choice, Good for power outages, Good Sound Quality, Great Reception, Lightweight, NOAA is very useful

Low Quality

 

I had to put two coins in the battery compartment to make the radio work. I still don't understand why the radio shuts down completly when I plug the AC out wire in back, and the radio has to be completely reset.

Lightweight

Flimsy

Exactly What I Was Looking For

 

I keep this radio on my bedside table and use it every night. All I need is a small am/fm radio. Most of the radios I found were way too big and had options I didn't need (CD, MP3, HD, nature sounds, etc.) It has great reception and is easy to program....

Durable, Good Sound Quality, Great Reception, Lightweight

Consumer review by:

worst radio I've ever bought

 

Static on all stations. Either defective or of the poorest quality. Big disappointment, returned radio to manufacturer. Will not buy anything but small items (batteries, cords, etc.) from Radio Shack again. No faith in company.

Poor Sound Quality

Consumer review by:

Good radio for the money

 

Good overall radio with a lot of features that would cost twice as much to get on other radios.

Durable, Long Battery Life
