Summary: Having purchased a smaller unit Eaton several years ago, I was prepared to be unimpressed. But this slightly larger unit has far superior tuning, reception and sound quality. I was disappointed to see that it doesn't come with a wall adapter, but later realized that it's not necessary because the crank is so incredibly effective. A brisk two-minute crank literally powered the radio for over five hours!
Summary: I began shopping for a basic radio because I needed a way to listen to baseball games at home because they're blacked out on the internet by the MLB. I bought this one because of the reviews and I am so glad I did. This radio is solid and well-made. The reception is fantastic and the sound quality is great, at least for talk radio and sports broadcasts. And I love how portable the radio is and the dynamo powering!!.
Summary: This is a great radio, beyond all my expectations. The sound is unbelievable for such a small radio. I am using it with batteries but the hand crank produces a long period of sound with just a little turning. It pulls in a normally weak station that I like to listen to even without the antenna extended. I would highly recommend this radio.

Summary: Rock Solid Performer, From Salem Oregon I Get NOAA Weather, San Fran Ca.,Reno Nev.,Texas, & A Russian Station, Plus All The Other Stations I Need To Receive. The Absolute Cleanest Sharpest Dial READ Of ALL The Other Radios I Have. Smooth Precise Tuner Gets You ZEROED IN. BUT, My Little/Big Modification Was Really Needed So I Could Fully Enjoy This Radio.
Summary: nice small size with easy controls tunes easily (comfortable for us who are old enough to remember radios before digital tuners) and has nice reception and sound quality, with flexibility of multiple power sources.
Summary: This unit is better than any compact am/fm radio I have every used over the last several decades. I have not tried the dynamo but if that works the unit is really a 4.5 star and would be a 5 if it had a weather band. Pros: o Very strong AM reception, FM reception is good o Speaker is excellent for talk shows and news due to the attenuated bass o Built light is weak but also backlights the tuning dial so you can see the bands in low light situations o Excellent user...
Summary: This is what all radios should be. Extremely well built, easy to use, crystal clear speaker and solid tuning and volume knobs. The crank is top notch. This is the perfect small portable to have anywhere in your house. Would make a great gift for someone who loves radio instead of all that nonsense on tv. I promise you will be very happy with this little radio for a long time !!
Summary: This is an awesome little radio. The sound quality is amazing. There is a classical music station pretty far away from me, yet the station plays crystal clear and perfectly, even in my basement! It is small but not cheap or flimsy at all--it's well made. The crank is sturdy and easy to use, and it takes very little power to run it for hours and hours. I've had it a week and I'm so happy I got it!
