Summary: The SANGEAN SG622 12-Band is a good little travel radio, easily tucked in your travel bag, or purse. It sounds good at low to medium volume, and is a nice radio to catch up on the local news ... music sounds OK too. Also, there is an earphone jack, and external power plug, not included with radio.
Summary: I was so disappointed with this item. I chose it for the 4 star rating it received as a birthday gift for hubby. He wanted something small to take into work when he works nights. Silly me, bought it months ago so now cannot return it. :( It did not work from the get go.
Summary: I was disappointed in the reception in the AM mode. There were only about 6 stations that the radio was able to clearly be heard. Terrible reception. The tone is "mushy" and definitely not crisp for AM talk shows. I do have the Sangean little pocket radio and it works perfectly.
Summary: Product was bought as a gift- turned out to be an embarrassment . The volume did not work properly- there was one setting that was barely audible with no control. AM and FM was received but SW was not available. Not sure if it was just damaged goods or the product line itself was at fault.
Summary: The Sagean SG-622 is a fantastic little radio, and I really must say 'little'. The photos don't really do justice the small size of the radio; its just so portable and lightweight you can really take it anywhere.
Summary: Perhaps you want to dip a toe in the waters of shortwave radio listening. In my case, I wanted to give my kids a different perspective of the world around them than that which comes from the cliches and stereotypes presented on TV and in the movies.
