I had great hopes for this radio but was badly disappointed

Maine Boy, Amazon

  • Summary: I had great hopes for this radio but was badly disappointed. I had great trouble pulling in a strong station that I had no trouble pulling in with another radio. I always thought Grundig was one of the best but they seem to have gone way downhill recently. I would recommend Sony and Sharp if you are looking for a good radio like this.

I rate this radio BETTER than most

Michael Patrick Riley, Amazon
30 June 2014
  • Summary: I found it relatively easy to program in about 12 stations. The sleep timer goes off every 30 minutes and thereby saves me a bunch on batteries. I am usually asleep before 30 minutes. I like being able to change stations in the dark. Also it only takes 2 batteries, unlike some other radios which take 4 batteries. Because I have a radiowave absorbing steel siding on my house, I get diminished reception. Basically I rate this radio better than average or good.

Cheaply made

  • Summary: Very poorly and cheaply made. You will be better off buying any random radio from pharmacy stores. Eton has destroyed what Grundig used to mean. The controls are flimsy and reception quality is really bad. The battery cover keeps coming loose. I bought it for my dad, but was disappointed and ended up putting it in freecycle.

Grundig G* Traveler II

Jack "Jack", Amazon
20 February 2014
  • Summary: FM works very well. AM and Shortwave are mediocre at best, which I learned from other reviews before I bought it. But the radio is the right size for me and I mainly listen to FM. If FM is your thing, it's a very good little radio. If not, don't buy it. One more thing, the controls work fine once you get used to them. There's no pre-select button control, but you have to scroll the top control to move from one preset station to another.

Great Buy

  • Summary: This is a pretty amazing little radio for the money. Operation is clever but takes a little getting used to. The buttons have different meanings depending on situation and length of depression. Very efficient when done carefully.
