Summary: Purchased this item for my 80 year old father in-law. It needed to be simple for him to operate as well as have a display that could easily be seen. This product really meets these requirements. In addition, I wanted to purchase a high quality radio that could really pull in stations and was durable. Again, this product performed extremely well and appears to be well made. The price was a bit high, but you get what you pay for.
Summary: Receives FM stations that other radios can not bring in. I did not give it five stars because the instruction manual is less than user friendly. I would recommend this radio as well worth the Amazon price.
Summary: One of the reasons I bought that item 'cause many buyers stated that it has great AM reception, I did not find the reception all that great, I live in a major city and yet AM reception from stations just 50 miles away was full of statics.
Summary: I'm taking a different tack with this review compared to the other reviews of the PR-D15 here. I'm going to do a direct side by side comparison to the radio it succeeded and replaced, the PR-D5, which I also own and reviewed almost two years ago: http://www.amazon.com/review/R20OHQ1QCHCTQ8/ Here are the feature differences between the PR-D15 over and above the PR-D5: * Digital signal processing on both AM and FM * A seven-position signal strength meter * The ability to...
Summary: works well, good digital quality, it is very heavy with all 6 c batteries in it but it will help to keep it from tipping over, seems to be very well built, electrical cord is a bit short but it is ok, there is no way to store the cord which could be a problem for some people
Summary: Only static on all am bands - even with several big AM stations less then 20mi away... No radio signals, no electrical interference, just a soft fuzz across the 'dial'... Even when tuning at the 'fine step'. No, I didn't have it set to the 9khz steps... I even went so far as to 'reset' the radio per instructions, still nothing. My other radios get many stations and static besides!
Summary: One of the few bright spots with this appliance is that the radio alarm gently fades in instead of suddenly blasting the sleeper with full sound volume. However, someone ought to have long talk with Sangean’s user interface designers. My assumption was that once the alarm time and mode (beeper vs. radio) has been selected, pressing the “alarm” button would arm or disarm the alarm without further input. Wrong!
Summary: I gave this to my elderly mom as a Christmas present. She only listens to AM radio, and was having difficulty getting good reception. She says the reception is great and it's not to big/heavy for her to carry around in the house as she moves from room to room.
Summary: We needed a portable radio for primary use in the kitchen. The Sangean PR-D15 FM-Stereo/AM Rechargeable Portable radio is perfect. It doesn't take up much counter space, is portable so can be moved outside when working outdoors, has a very nice sound and is easy to use. We haven't used the battery option yet, so cannot report on that feature.
