Summary: it sounds OK, nothing to rave about but what makes it definitely not worth the high cost is the old fashioned digital display. the display is so skinny and faint, it's hard to read from a few feet away. all you get is a bright orange, glowing rectangle. i wouldn't even consider this as an alarm clock with all the light it throws off. the station number display is huge but the time display is tiny.
Summary: Note: We haven't had this item long enough to determine battery life, but will assume it's Good. My hubby had requested a "small $10 digital AM radio" for his birthday. Upon researching, I found that there is no such item with decent reviews. He had two criteria: 1) Digital 2) Station reach. After looking at a myriad of products and reading their reviews, I finally settled on this specific product. However, it was not available in inventory at ANY local retailer.
Summary: I bought this new radio because my analog radio had too much statistic whenever I tried to listen to the AM dial (especially at night). This radio helped to eliminate that issue on my favorite AM channel, but all the other channels on the AM dial doesn't work on this radio. The only reason I am keeping it is because at least I can listen to my favorite station on the AM dial.
