Good buy!

California Girl - LMD, Amazon
28 March 2011
  • Summary: Bought this radio for our, soon to be, 18 year old cat upstairs. The reception is good and it reaches more stations than a previous (other brand)aged radio, used for years for the same purpose. I'd searched for a replacement for weeks, and Amazon had what I was looking for.

Piece of Junk

Michael T. Smith, Amazon
26 March 2011
  • Summary: I get better reception with a 10 year old cheap clock radio. Will not pick up am stations. Terrible static on those that are received. Do not buy this. Supplier would only give me full refund if I paid to return it which would have cost about half the price of the radio. I'll just throw it away.

This is not an AM or WB radio. Only FM.

MallaLubba, Amazon
25 March 2011
  • Summary: I am quite disappointed with this product. It will not pick up a single AM station or any weather bands. Although the speaker is clear and the sound is what a bit better than what you'd expect when listening to FM stations, the lack of the other bands is bewildering.

  • Summary: I ordered a potable radio we live in tornado alley everyone that saw it wanted one so I ordered 4 more and I have very happy friends. It is hard to find a simple radio at the store any more. We got just what we needed fast thanks!

TERRIBLE RECEPTION

KELLERCYCLE, Amazon
22 March 2011
  • Summary: While this radio was relatively cheap one would think since the days of Marconi the manufacturer could figure this out. In an area with good reception on other devices this radio has constant static on Am and won't hold a channel on Fm. Sorry guys try again.

Cheap radio with poor performance

andrew, Amazon
21 March 2011
  • Summary: This radio fails at its fundamental purpose of receiving and playing radio signals. The AM reception in particular was abysmal. I was only able to tune to one station clearly and even it had an annoying high pitched noise. Other radios that I have in the same location work without issue.

Don't Buy

Raymond Sitar, Amazon
20 March 2011
  • Summary: I received the radio, pluged in and worded ok. I threw the box, etc away - 2 days later, I turned on and the digistal display screen did not work so you are unable to tell what station you are on.

Should have returned it

paul, Amazon
19 March 2011
  • Summary: The weakest part of the Coby CX39 portable Radio is that it is NOT digital tuned. The display is digital but the actual frequency tuning is analog thumb-wheel.The result is that a Station can be tuned-in and sounds great, but goes off-frequency when your hand is removed. My advice?

Superheterodyne Radio} , It does not work like one ? More like a crystal radio

Robert Winterode, Amazon
18 March 2011
  • Summary: This receivers sensitivity is way better then I thought it would be on all bands ! The sound is crystal clear and easy to listen to . {Selectivity is poor} . I would say on the AM and SW side it is like a crystal radio with a RF amp , with local stations overlapping over all the dial and the most...
