Works very well.

Bill Campbell, Amazon
15 January 2014
  • Summary: I live in a mountainous area were radio reception was very poor. Signals are very weak and lots of static. This radio is very good at staying connected to the internet and there are thousands of stations all over the world to connect with. Of course the broadcast is very clear.

Outstanding performance, but unwieldy controls.

James B., Amazon
21 May 2013
  • Summary: Excellent performance, but the controls are not as friendly as they could be; especially the 'sleep' function. Sangean has made perfect clock radios in the past, so it's surprising this one falls short.

Easy set up, easy use, reliable performance.

Conan the Grammarian, Amazon
2 January 2013
  • Summary: I like everything but one thing about this radio. Its size and appearance are perfect for how I use it - as a clock radio on my night table. The set up was much easier than I found with two other brands previously purchased (and still in use). Setting up an alarm schedule is easy and intuitive.

sangean needs a redesign

cfox, Amazon
17 September 2012
  • Summary: Purchased 3 of these radios, first one was DOA, returned. Second one worked for a couple months but had an "internal error" and would not turn back on. The radio worked decently, when it worked properly.

Superb Little Radio

Bergram "Bergram", Amazon
28 March 2012
  • Summary: This is a good "Bedroom" companion if one doesn't mind its size. It has an excellent ergonomic setting for a night cruising. Really! You can navigate all the controls in the darkness of the night even without flickering light. Its buttons are sett up to be used as a brail navigator.

Greatly Disappointed

fnaranch, Amazon
8 January 2012
  • Summary: The selection of stations is through a single service, RECIVA.com. If the station, or or stations you wish to listen to are not on RECIVA, you are "bleeped".

WiFi clock radio

Mason, Amazon
25 March 2011
  • Summary: The best WiFi radio I've seen for clear reception of radio stations from around the country not otherwise available because of distance. WABC, etc. is available 24 hours a day from hundreds of miles away - very easy to operate.
