Good radio but remote doesn't work

Vince, Amazon
21 January 2014
  • Summary: I am very happy with the radio, but the remote never worked and Amazon expected me to return the whole thing to get the remote replaced. No can do! My wife "needs" the radio. It was my Christmas gift to her. I threw the old one out.

Flawed design

Walter Lund, Amazon
13 January 2010
  • Summary: For a such a quality radio it has two major flaws. The LED display is far too bright at night unless you need a room night light. A dimmer switch should be provided. The AM reception is poor unless you attach an external antenna. Radio should have a decent internal antenna.

OK, but with odd features

Deb C "Deb C", Amazon
13 December 2009
  • Summary: Agree that sound and reception are good. However, it has two features that affect its utility for me and are odd. First, you can't use it on a daily timer because it requires the press of the on/off button whenever the power is cut and restored.

Good sound, so-so everything else

Percy Smogg, Amazon
28 November 2009
  • Summary: I got two of these on special for $30 each. The sound is remarkably full for a small table radio. There is a bass reflex port in the back of the radio. The FM radio is sensitive enough to pick up most stations without noise -- even those classical stations which always seem to be of marginal...

Eton radio works as a radio, not as a clock

Amazon Customer, Amazon
22 November 2009
  • Summary: The Eton 100 has wonderful sound quality, great FM tuning, and lots of nice features, including a remote and the ability to interact remotely with an ipod. The problem is that this CLOCK/RADIO fails one task - the clock.

Great iPod Dock - Eton's Sound 100 iPod is worth a look

Mark "Technology, Music and Movies", Amazon
10 August 2009
  • Summary: The Sound 100 iPod Dock is the latest in Eton's product family. As a stand-alone radio this device is average. With the iPod dock this unit is a cut above and one you must consider. They do sell this device without the iPod dock, and it ranges from being $30 to $50 less than this model.

High expectations unmet

Matthew Decker, Amazon
29 May 2009
  • Summary: After many weeks of research I decided to buy the Eton Sound 100. Especially when the blue model came available at a big discount. The first day of use was exciting because the sound quality this unit produced was far superior to any bedside radio I previously used.

Over all I'm pleased

Harv Walton, Amazon
29 May 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this item on a whim as I needed a radio in the bathroom. The sound quality is great if you love a lot of bass. Sometimes with the exhaust fan on (or other noise in the room)the bass is all you hear so keep that in mind. The good: In a quiet room the sound quality is great.

annoying display light

G. Woolever "seeker of the Muses", Amazon
14 May 2008
  • Summary: The audio quality and reception are very good, and are certainly a big improvement over the standard clock radio that it replaced for me, but the blue beacon light coming from the display is TRULY ANNOYING, and I'm not sure I would have bought it if I had realized how aweful the light would be in...

For iPod Dock Features, Eton's Sound 100 iPod Is Worth A Look

Mark "Technology, Music and Movies", Amazon
6 May 2008
  • Summary: The Sound 100 iPod Dock comes in black and white. The radio only version adds other colors including silver, blue and red. I've had the white one for a while and I've been pretty happy with it. This is very similar, but loses points for the non-black speaker face.
