Summary: I was pretty excited about this radio until I used it for a couple days. It won't stay tuned to a station for very long. The tuner dial is a little spongy and it creeps off (requiring you to re-tune several times a day).
Summary: Purchased this radio for $55.00 without regret. Listening to music is fine but the tone is leaning too much on the bass side. Not a major issue because it's a worksite radio. My concern is that after you tune in a station and you walk away, sometimes the station starts to drift causing you to...
Summary: At first glance appears very rugged and looks like it can handle anything. Really like the way the cord stores and the handles make it an easy radio to move around. Sadly, the tuner will not hold a station. During the day needs readjusting every 15 to 30 minutes.
Summary: So far this radio has met my expectations. The sound is good, FM signals are relatively stable (some drift occurs, but not enough for me to regret not paying for a digital tuner) and the bass boost others mention is not unpleasant to my ears.
Summary: we bought two of these radios, one for a workshop and one for a large greenhouse. the radios are great, loud and clear, easy to operate, excellent sound. the one in the greenhouse is subjected to a lot of humidity, yet it continues to operate perfectly. highly recommend.
Summary: Very good, knobs are solid and work smoothly. The tuner knob is excellent, dials in very well. Speaker is excellent. The radio is built very solid. This radio is TOUGH!!! This is A minor detail but if they wanted to make this radio any better they could put A Bass to Treble adjust on it.
Summary: I purchased this rugged radio in my attempt to find something that was resistant to water damage, had good reception, great sound, and a long battery life. It seems Sangean made a whole line of products for exactly this. My radio came in a couple days prior to my canoe trip.
