Summary: I like HD Radio and I really wanted this radio to be good. Unfortunately, it was a not to be. The radio would not work on its internal rechargable battery, even after several days of charging. I contacted Coby service and they exchanged it under warranty, but charged me $12 for the privilege!
Summary: This radio has poor antenna reception and often does not work unless pulled in most of the time. Display is nice, as well as sound quality. I use it outside and it sounds great as long as you can pick up a channel.
Summary: I bought one of these radios and it wouldn't power on, even after charging overnight. So I exchanged it for another one (same model). The second one would turn on, but never got past the "Please Wait" stage.
Summary: Bought this radio back in December of 2009 for my 80 year old mother, she was having difficulties getting her AM radio talk show at night time. We had discovered that several FM stations were simulcasting the AM station on FM HD sub carriers. OK, the good the bad and the ugly...
Summary: This little radio is well-constructed and sturdy. It's too bad the reception isn't any good. When the radio is on and tuned to an XD station (either AM or FM), it works fine for a few minutes.
Summary: Bought this for my Grandson to take to school for music listening. His school is on a high hill so reception is very good. At home it was not as good as where he spends his educational days. Would recommend to a friend as long as they lived in a good reception area.
Summary: I bought this unit for the HD radio portability. It started out fine-then i started to have reception problems. I could set it right next to my other hd radios and not get an hd signal-although the other radios had a strong hd signal.
