Summary: Great receiver for its size. Great reception and great sound. Actualy like better than my 'super' 909. It actually pulls in signals better. If I was doing it over, I'd settle for this radio and be done. The dial is straight forward and very easy to use.
Summary: This radio is all about feel, function, and form factor. General performance is about what you'd expect from a premium quality travel radio with a 3 inch speaker. Music is much better listened to through a good set of headphones, of course, and with a strong FM signal the results can be quite...
Summary: This radio has lots of great features (with the notable exception of synchronous detection - reducing signal fade), but it sucks batteries dry very quickly. I would gladly live without a signal strength indicator or 700 memory locations, etc, for longer battery life.
Summary: I am very satisfied with the radio. It has good reception and sound quality. This is my first short wave radio with digital tuning and I am pleased with the fact that it stays on frequency without having to keep re-adjusting the tuning. It has a nice display and the controls are well laid out.
Summary: This radio was a replacement for a still functioning Grundig Traveler II multi band receiver, a very good, small radio with excellent sensitivity and great sound quality. The E5 is a multi band shortwave radio with double superhet tuning circuit and wide band coverage.
Summary: This radio is very similar in performance to the cheaper Kaito 1103. Performance is OUTSTANDING, and several annoying attributes of the 1103 (such as the volume control ergonomics) have been designed out.
Sleek compact radio- Good tuner and sound , needs SYNC

Summary: The Eton E5 is the best small portable for FM reception that I've ever seen. It's Broadcast band (AM) is quite good, as well. Shortwave reception is above average but could be improved. When connecting headphones, the FM stereo produced is quite good and the tone of the AM is very satisfactory.
