Buy it

Steve the geek, Radioshack

  • Excerpt: I almost gave up buying a pocket or small desk radio until getting the Sangean. I knew radios used to be of high quality, but the last $20-40 models I purchased konked out early on and were battery vampires.<br /><br />This radio is the first and only excellent small radio I could find in recent years. Saves for the addition price in batteries alone, plus longevity. Apartenly, this is the company who made Optimus for Radio Shack years ago, which were great radios.
  • Pros: Durable, Good Sound Quality, Great Reception, Lightweight, Long Battery Life

  • Excerpt: I have owned the previous version &quot;RS#12-169&quot;, for years. It is the same size and has the same controls, same excellent base response.I can operate the radio without taking it out of my pocket. I saw the DT 400W and bought it as an upgrade.I am very happy with it.Same reception, sound quality but with the addition of, weather alert, back light, bigger buttons,bigger batteries, its even easier to operate. I listen as I walk and,do procedures.

Worthy Purchase

Jeff, Radioshack
23 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I own many radios, too many to mention but this one is my daily companion while walking my dog or traveling. Sounds great through the headphones and not too bad through the built in speaker. I do like the option of walking and listening without having to wear headphones. Just a note: It uses the headphone jack for an antenna. It does have a switch to select either speaker or phones, I often plug in the phones (as the antenna) and use the speaker.

Just what I needed.

  • Excerpt: It was a Christmas gift - great for getting hourly predicted low temps so we can resurface the neighborhood rink. I also like having the AM-FM radio on my daily commute so I can switch between music and news.

Where is the updated OPTIMUS?

ole' man, Radioshack
23 May 2014
  • Excerpt: It's handy to use, walk around doing chores or hobbies and keep up with the news. (and not annoy the wife!) Actually the old &quot;OPTIMUS&quot; model was smaller and had clock radio features, which was GREAT for travel, but this is ok for around home. <br />I hope the yellow color indicates waterproof, I splash a lot in the summer.

Outstanding Portable

Eddie P., Radioshack

  • Excerpt: I live in the Florida Panhandle where we often experience severe weather and tornadoes. I've had this radio for one year. You can set it to alert you (warble) of such weather in 4, 8, or 16 hour increments whether you are at your desk, in your vehicle, or in the backyard. In this mode, it will warble to alert you whether the radio is on or off, using headphones or external speaker! Seven NOAA radio channels. Great FM reception, good sensitivity in the AM band at night.

  • Excerpt: I ordered this portable radio to listen to football games while working in the yard or anywhere around the house. The reception is great, the speaker sound quality is excellent, the digital tuning and memory presets are great. I will use this camping as well which was the reson for getting the model with the weather alert mode. [...] Great item at an affordable price.
