Summary: I bought this CD Shower Radio because it was affordable and the reviews seemed to be half and half so I thought I would be just fine. Simply put, though, this product does not work. The radio works at times, but my CDs would not play or would skip a lot. Also, the manual says that the product can handle water splashes, but that it is not necessarily waterproof -- another stress that is not worth it.
Not very fog resistant and hard time getting signal.

Summary: Not too happy with this. First off it's not really fog free. It fogged up a little on day 1 of use and then just went downhill until it started completely fogging up. The radio is okay if you can get a signal on it. We mainly use the CD player, that's the only reason I gave this product 2 stars instead of 1. Not worth it! There has to be a better product out there.
Summary: This shower radio is the worst! It seems it's no more water resistant than a typical radio would be. I've gone through 3 (replaced a the retailer once and by the distributor, who is not Jensen, once). Now the third one has broken and, since the warranty is for a mere 3 months, I'm back on the market for a new shower radio. Like other reviewers, I thought this radio was great. It works just like it should - but give it a few weeks of use and it's a paperweight.
If you want a radio that works, get something else!

Summary: Bought this thing a year ago and was extremely dissappointed with the design and performance. The clock and digital display is way too small to see, especially in the shower and the radio is old fashioned analog circiutry of the worst kind. The station tuning constantly drifted while listening so that you had to re-tune every few minutes, either in the shower or out.
Summary: This is really neat, a little larger than I'd tought it would be but not huge. The instructions about the clock are worded a little strangely, etc, but if you use common sense it sets up pretty well.
Summary: My wife asked for something like this for xmas. My mother got this unit. It exceeds all of our expectations. My mother-in-law was visiting thereafter and loved it so much that we bought one for her. So, it's really been a happy additional to our family. :) Seriously, it sounds great, works well, I don't think we've replaced the batteries in 6 months, plays CDs, radio, whatever. I only wish you could plug an mp3 player into it, but that's not what this device is.
Summary: This was much clunkier than I'd expected. I wanted a radio for in the shower because I get up earlier than the rest of the family & wanted something to listen to while I was locked up in the bathroom getting dressed. Our bathroom sits on the corner of the house, with two windows on the corner. Unless this is sitting on one of the windows, the reception is unreliable.
