Don't buy this

Carolyn S. Estes, Amazon
16 May 2011
  • Summary: Came as pictured, nice packaging but once I opened it up it didn't work - tried everything it was just a P.O.S. Don't buy it period, its not worth sending back.

Piece of Junk ($20 paperweight) !!

Beth Rogers, Amazon
8 December 2008
  • Summary: I should have known better since I've had problems with two other Coby products. I bought this when the main Amazon site was selling it, for when I'm out walking for exercise. Immediately there were problems. The worst was that the digital radio tuner kept setting itself to the bottom of the dial, and I couldn't get any stations without turning it off and on again a few times.

Poor reception

  • Summary: The reception is terrible. I am close to the transmitting station and the reception breaks up a lot. Would not recommend buying this radio.

Disappointing

  • Summary: This product is disappointing. The ear piece already doesn't work. It's bigger then expected and the radio station reception is not great.

large and loud

Abby M,, Amazon
12 May 2007
  • Summary: The radio's easy to use, but the volume doesn't get quiet enough to use in an office setting. It's also a LOT bigger than most MP3 players on the market. But at this price ... you can't complain much.

Good for the price

P. Challingsworth "peterc46", Amazon
16 April 2007
  • Summary: A little larger than I expected, and the FM cannot pull in one of my local stations that I receive ok on other radios. The supplied earbuds are very poor - I prefer to use my own ones that hook over the ear, and they are louder than the ones provided. Apart from that, what's to say? It's an AM/FM radio at a good price, don't expect a lot.

I wouldn't recommend it

MATHIEW, Amazon
17 December 2006
  • Summary: How can such a simple item be so badly constructed? I bought this for my girlfriend, who was using an mp3 player with FM radio before. Since I noticed that she never used the mp3 -just the radio- when that gadget became malfunctional, I decided that a radio-only device would be just fine. There aren't many options here in Amazon, this one is almost one out of two portable digital radio-only devices.

Everything I needed

M. Swanton, Amazon
21 November 2006
  • Summary: This Coby radio does everything I need it to do, so I'm very happy. I have a Sirius radio mounted to the windshield of my motorcycle. I had my earphones plugged into it but it did not work out all that well. Adjusting the volume on the Sirius is not easy, nor does it go loud enough to hear at turnpike speed and above. I also couldn't stand the cord flapping in the wind or unplugging it to get off the bike.

  • Summary: Pros - Clock - The number of preset stations (10) - Neck strap Cons - Poor reception (specially AM) - A little bit big for a portable radio - Scan not too exactly
