Summary: It's the size of an old school transistor radio & does't really give any extra features for that size. Worth the price but only that. Given to do over I would skip the TV bands and get a radio half this size.
Difficult to tune, TV and SW bands don't seem to work

Summary: I use this to listen to the news in the shower. It's adequate for that purpose, but the TV and SW bands have never seemed to work. It's also very difficult to tune as the indicator is almost invisible.

Summary: Wow. I was surprised at how much this costs on Amazon. I borrow this sometimes from a coworker to get thru the night. It looks like it's worth about $20. It gets only a very few stations in clearly.
Summary: Nicer volumetric dimensions than the usual transistor radio, but my antenna fell out after just a month or two. Curiously you rarely get what you do pay for either. Ah capitalism... what a great ruse.
Summary: I like this radio and it's better than the cheap Sony with better volume control, audio, antenna design, and size. In addition the Coby picks up a few TV stations, and a weather station or two. The tuning is a little more finicky than the Sony but it is still worth the six dollars I spent.
