Summary: Inexpensive but reliable little radio. Not all stations are available on web and with sports aren't always synched with "real time." This little radio has good distance for reception too. Larger than most MP 3 players, about the size oh an old iPod, little thicker and no belt clip. Pretty good for the price!

Summary: This is my third one, thanks to square trade, they keep replacing them. When it works it is top of the line, great antenna and double bass/stereo for a AM/FM radio its great as long as it holds up. I treat the receiver very gently and I don't understand why they will not hold up.
The best digital pocket radio, newly designed version is buggy
27 September 2014
Summary: Weirdly buggy. Been using these excellent radios for many years. This version has been redesigned using 2 AAA batteries instead of one. More power should make it last longer, but, oddly, it uses it up faster than the single battery version. The newly designed version also has the nice feature of a digital clock which can't be using that much power. Worst of all, both units I purchased go dead when changing the batteries.
Summary: An excellent radio with much better reception than most of its competitors. The result is that the stations have much less static. This is particularly important at my gym where other radios cannot pick up FM signals. Its only drawback for me is that it automtically shuts off after ninety minutes which leads to excessive battery drain. It would be better if it shut off after about 30 minutes.
Summary: Nice size and weight, comes with long ear bud headphones, which adds to convenience. Reception in major metropolitan area is fine. The Off feature after 90 minutes can be a bit annoying; haven't been bothered enough to find out how to turn off that default feature. Easy to set to stations and go from AM to FM. The only feature missing is back lit volume control and LCD screen. You have to set stations with lots of light and to see control buttons.
