Summary: I purchased this radio weeks ago and so far it has been great. I have moved it from my kitchen to my garage, where I was painting some furniture, and it gets great reception. The preset station programming works well, and the weather channel works well as well. For the money, it is great.
Summary: This little radio is just what I needed, and the price was certainly right. Uses batteries or AC, is light weight, and a good size...fits anywhere. Good reception in any room of the house....with AM or FM. Also has the weather band, which could come in handy. The instructions for how to pre-set stations were fairly easy to understand...I'm not good with instructions! These were clear. Good little radio with nice, kind of retro styling, and good reception.
Summary: After hearing about the Oklahoma tornadoe that destoyed Moore and OKC, I thought chances were low for anything like that to happen in central Calif.. but then I downloaded the Red Cross tornadoes alert app and did a search of my area. I earned there have been 35 tornadoes in my area! I decided to buy a NOAA radio with back up battery capabilities and it works great!
Summary: The one thing I dislike about this radio is it is so lightweight, I guess it's lighter than a pocket book. Press any of the front buttons and its guaranteed to tip/knock over the entire unit. You definitely have to use two hands to operate it. Also, I normally listen to radio on weekends for at least 4 hours. It tends to emit a smell like burnt plastic/rubber. I understand that most electronics are like that initially, but with this one for how long?
Summary: I have been searching for a small radio with a clock, to keep in the bathroom that is simple to use, and this one is great! For a small radio it has great sound, and a clean look. I would highly recommend this to a friend.
Summary: I ordered this radio to have on my bathroom counter.For that purpose it works out fine to hear my news and listen to music while getting ready for the day.You might not want this as a main radio but for what it cost it works just fine.
