Summary: We are 95% thrilled with is product. The only feature that we are struggling with is the eternal AM antenna. We use this radio in a remote area and it picks up most stations, AM and FM twice as good as any other radio we have tried.
Summary: I'am very pleased with my new S450 Grundig. We were just on the edge of good reception with our 350 Grundig. We listen to a New York station and we live in Springfield, Ma. The reception is excellent and the sound is more crisp than our 350. I would definitely replace it with the exact same thing.
Summary: Great looking radio. Bought it on advice and brand recognition. After using it for a couple of weeks and reading some reviews there are several issues. 1) ac adapter causes unwanted noise. everyone complains of that. 2) the narrow and wide switch is glitchy and poorly designed.
Summary: I bought this strictly as an FM radio and it exceeded my expectations. I work in a prison, so obviously steel and concrete create reception issues. Not with this radio. I am picking up FM stations crystal clear inside the walls that are 100 miles away.
Summary: I preferred the "old" design, but I fried that one by using the wrong adapter after a move... So I bought this version, and now love it just as much. It looks great (a great conversation starter!), tunes very easily, all the handles turn smoothly. Sound is great.
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 !
Excellent radio if you can look beyond its pitfalls
