both are horrible on AM

Joel P Knoblauch, Amazon
18 December 2014
  • Summary: The first night out of the box my new Grundig S450DLX got reasonable reception on FM and AM; not much on SW. Now I get virtually no reception (fuzzy/poor reception of 2 very local stations) on AM, but a reasonable number of FM stations.

  • Summary: Not something I would recommend. AM reception was okay but the FM reception was very poor . I live in Denver Metro and had static on many FM stations and could barely hear a few stations unless I turned up the volume really loud. I returned it .

LOVE IT ! A VERY GOOD RADIO

Ronald R. Ross, Amazon

  • Summary: While quality control issues have plagued this radio for years, the fact remains that if you get a good one, it's an excellent radio and a great value. I got lucky, I guess because mine operates as it should and that's very good...and I got a great price from Amazon !

It doesn't work

  • Summary: Got this radio home last night, plugged it in (a normal AC wall socket, using the adapted supplied). Briefly a number 12 was displayed then nothing. Not the most auspicious of starts.

Good, solid radio

Grant C. Price (Spanish Fork, UT), Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: This radio gets good reception in AM, FM, and SW; and it appears to be well made. It's only limitation is the lack of a provision for quick digital tuning for stations one doesn't tune in very often. All things considered, a sturdy, useful unit.

The bad reviews were right :(

M. Leonick, Amazon
18 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought at Radio shack and it is going right back. It couldn't even pick up some AM and FM stations in NYC that I have no trouble getting with small cheap radios or in my car. I couldn't get any short wave stations at all! Buttons were very cheap. I will try the Sony or other brand.

Skip this in favor of the S350, the 350 is a much better radio.

Lantern Photography, Amazon

  • Summary: A poor quality radio, and a very poor substitution for the S350. I've had this radio for about 6 months, and it worked for the first 3 months. The AM radio reception was surprisingly good.
