Cute radio

  • Summary: I like little transistor radios. When I see something different I buy it for my little collection. They are not especially great sounding or long range. Just a toy.

Pretty much useless

  • Summary: Scratchy sound when you can find any reception, and pretty much useless to me. I consider it a waste of $10.

Decent value for the price, but not a great value

18 January 2014
  • Summary: The "digital" tuner still uses a dial knob to find the station, but the radio has only average selectivity so you can be off by 10 or 20 numbers and still hear your station. The radio has an annoying habit of turning itself on when the batteries are low; and also when the batteries are low, not wanting to turn off when you hit the "off" switch. To turn it off you have to remove and replace the batteries and that resets the clock to 12:00. Annoying, but livable.

  • Summary: This radio is being used daily. Good quality product. Works well. Batteries need to be changed every 7-10 days, if used 2-3 hours a day.

Batteries not included

NiteLiteLucy, Amazon
28 October 2013
  • Summary: This product is weightless and tiny. I bought this for my office and it was an immediate regret once I got it in the mail. Batteries were not included and went through 2 AAA's in about 6 hours. I threw this away and went back on to Amazon to purchase another one.

eats batteries

Myboys0711, Amazon
6 October 2013
  • Summary: Nice little radio for what I needed it for... definitely serves its purpose, but I don't use it anymore because it goes through WY too many batteries too quickly... maybe because of the digital display always being on, idk, but I wouldn't reccommend buying it. Inexpensive radio became expensive with constantly changing the batteries. I no longer use it.

my coby CX50 radio

Teodor Georgiev, Amazon
5 August 2013
  • Summary: The reception capability of this radio is extremely low. Practically, this radio is useless. Even more, look at the radio's image above. This is also misleading. The screen on the image has orange backlight. My radio does not have. In the darkness, you are not able to see anything on the radio screen. Poor, poor product quality. I just wasted my $10.

Coby CX50 AM/FM Radio

Diana O., Amazon
3 June 2013
  • Summary: This radio does exactly what I wanted it to do. I was looking for a battery operated radio for the bathroom and wanted one with digital tuning so the stations wouldn't drift as they did with my analog radio. This is perfect!
