Disappointing performance

Sonoma Geezer "Fatherhonda", Amazon
4 December 2014
  • Summary: I was disappointed. The radio was unable to reject interference from my computer on the AM band, something my cheap Coby CX789 does pretty well in exactly the same location. Then I tried setting stations in memory and going back to them.

This is a beautiful, inexpensive radio with a wonderful sound

  • Summary: This is a beautiful, inexpensive radio with a wonderful sound. Since I have a more expensive world radio, which I use for international channels, I cannot judge the capability of that reception.

Cheap, Cool, Clever. Catch it!

J. D. Patterson, Amazon
29 July 2014
  • Summary: At this price, how can anyone gripe. Digital tuning! Lotsa bands. Auto tuning. Cool looking. Pocket-able. Wowser! C'mon, this little multi-band radio is fantastic. Only thing it lacks are WX bands (weather). But you can look outside your window and make your own predictions any old time.

I had great hopes for this radio but was badly disappointed

Maine Boy, Amazon
9 July 2014
  • 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 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.

Great radio in the German tradition

Andrew Byers Jr., Amazon
19 May 2014
  • Summary: The G8 has great sound for a small multiband unit. The tuning is more accurate (up to 100ths of a wavelength) than many other digital radios in this price range. Features such as the clock, world clock, thermometer, earphone jack, & wake alarm make it extremely useful for travel.

Cheaply made

A. Chopra, Amazon
2 May 2014
  • 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.
