Sangean DT-210V

Christopher R., Newegg
24 March 2009
  • Summary: Belt clip profile reduction, elimination of TV band, conversion of existing DBBS button to a "Memory Select Button" and DBBS relegated to a toggle switch on the back or side of the case all would go a long way toward design improvement of this expensive AM/FM radio.
  • Pros: - Reception : Above average, but not incredible - Has preset memories - Speaker audio is good - Simple operation
  • Cons: - Inconvenient access to memory presets (requires two button action) - TV band seems useless - DBBS is distortion prone - Belt clip is high profile - Unit is expensive (relatively)

Sangean is the best

Coles A., Newegg
12 January 2009
  • Summary: I don't actually have the DT-210V, but I have the previous model of it and have had it for 10+ years. When I first saw the price I almost didn't buy the Sangean because I thought it was crazy to pay that for a little AM/FM radio, but I'm glad I read the reviews and ordered it anyway.
  • Pros: Amazing tuning and quality. Nice and small. Long battery life.
  • Cons: Be sure your are buying it for the AM/FM only as the TV stations may be gone soon.

Worthless piece of junk

R. Chew "Restless in Sac", Amazon
2 November 2008
  • Summary: I purchased the Sangean DT-210v based on the favorable reviews on Amazon.com. What I got was a worthless piece of junk. First, the earpieces are the size of megaphones. Unless your ears are the size of caves, the fit is so ergonomically uncomfortable there is no way you can wear them for any...

FM's not bad either

Squantumite, Amazon
21 February 2007
  • Summary: My city abuts Boston, so you would think that my reception would be good. I didn't know how bad it was until I recieved this little gem. Suddenly there are AM stations that I had no idea were there. And there were lots of weak FM stations that I now have a solid lock on. Oh yeah..

Finally, a pocket radio I could live with. But fragile.

PaulB, Amazon
16 February 2007
  • Summary: If stable, clear reception on all bands while on the move is the main consideration, I'd call this a very successful product. (I use in NYC, a strong-signal environment.) Lightweight and carries easily in a shirt pocket. Built in speaker very convenient too. On/off switch seems to be a bit frail.

stupid

Barry Bloch, Amazon
11 February 2007
  • Summary: Everything is fine about the radio except one major flaw. The presets don't allow you any ease of use. Each time you want to use the preset you have to hit "recall". The whole purpose of this radio for me is to surf quickly from one set station to another. This is unacceptable.

Overated and poor reliability

T. Smith, Amazon
9 February 2007
  • Summary: My first issue with the Sangean DT-210V is that the reception is no better than the $10 Sony I purchased back in 2000. My second is that after only a few months of use my DT-210V no longer works. My $10 Sony still does. Too bad my old Sony doesn't have digital tuning.

Great FM reception in tough circumstances

Jay Paul, Amazon
8 February 2007
  • Summary: I like to listen to a low-power college radio station (WRUV-FM rocks!) while I walk to work. I live in a hilly area and walk past various power lines. Consequently, I've always had to adjust the position of my headphone wire (i.e.

The Best Portable AM/FM/TV Around

F. Pono, Amazon
30 January 2007
  • Summary: My Sony radio/TV audio broke after only a year and I was looking to order another one but decided to see what other radio/TV portables were out there. The Sangean DT-210 won much praise, while some cited similar problems with their Sony.

Tiny and Powerful!

Kathy, Amazon
28 January 2007
  • Summary: This radio is perfect! I haven't tried the earphones yet; I needed a radio with speaker. It's powerful enough to pick up both stations I listen to (one in Philly and one in Wilmington, DE) that some of my other radios can't. It is also small enough to be easily hidden.
