Great Radio, Lousy Switch

Jack C. Sheppard, Amazon
12 August 2013
  • Summary: I bicycle hundreds of miles in summer and this radio is a great companion. Lightweight and compact, easy to program, excellent reception. However it has one serious flaw. The On/Off switch is fragile and undependable. My first unit lasted two seasons before the switch quit.

On/Off Switch issue

ScottB, Amazon
26 September 2011
  • Summary: The radio itself is good but the ON/OFF button stopped working after only 7 months of normal/light wear. So many others commented on this same defect but I decided to buy it anyway. I feel like I wasted my money.

Nice Radio, but not perfect

FLRON "BigRon", Amazon
3 July 2010
  • Summary: I've had my Sangean DT-210 AM/FM radio for a few weeks now. It was a bit pricey, but it gets better all around reception than my old, Radio Shack pocket radio. I use the Sangean a lot to listen to talk radio. It's quite small, weighs practically nothing, and it easily fits into most any pocket.

Should have been warned off by prior reviews

R. Boegel, Amazon
1 October 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this little radio five months ago. Have used maybe eight times. All the good features mean nothing because the On-Off button is failing, as reported by others, rendering the radio useless. Expensive mistake on my part!

Overated and poor reliability

T. Smith, Amazon
9 November 2008
  • 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.

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...

Pick a different Sangean

The Bracha, Amazon
5 September 2007
  • Summary: I've had two types of Sangean radios of this size and I use them to fall asleep at night. I thought this model would be a big improvement over the larger black one, but changing stations is hitting one button and then another button and then if you wait a few seconds, you have to do that all over...
