Summary: I don't know if I got a lemon or what. At first it was fabulous~good sound etc... within six months the stations changed on their own. They would fix it if I sent it across country at my expense. I did because I liked the radio that much. When I first got it back, guess what?
Not good as clock or alarm clock. Good radio. Good iPhone/ipod charger. Good sound.

Summary: When I first received this radio, I loved it. It worked though the instructions on how to use were NOT clear. After about 6 months it stopped keeping time and now nothing works. The sound is good on the radio, but I wanted an alarm clock too.
Summary: Needed a table top radio for our bathroom sink area to use while getting ready for the new day or getting ready to go to sleep. The existing table top radio did not have good sound and reception, with AM reception as nil.
Summary: I had busted my old stereo, but it was more than I needed anyway, so when I found this one, I was quite pleased. The sound quality is excellent, and the features are super. There are two minor reasons I docked a star.
Summary: Okay - so I like the sound I get from it - but - and here is the kicker...I can never rely on the Clock. I have now had the clock for about 45 days (so outside the Amazon return period - which is really pissing me off as I was not "sure" about this issue until it had happened three times).
Summary: Had the WR-5 for almost two years now. The sound out of it is great, seems like it is solidly built, nice appearance. But the controls are oddly extremely fragile and wear out on their own very quickly.
Summary: The bad outweigh the good looks and great sound. The two rotary dials used to adjust time, tuner, date, etc. stick and become utterly useless. I am not the only one to have had this issue. I cannot adjust any settings in the radio now, and I haven't had it but a few months. No product support.
Summary: 1) Volume control stopped working within two months of purchase. Poor craftsmanship. 2) Remote does not work after two months of purchase. Replaced batteries with name brand batteries and they get drained in ten days. Faulty remote.
Summary: This product has a great look but the quality is upsetting. It worked fine for the first two months. Eventually the volume button on the radio broke leaving me to have to use the remote for volume. Do not invest in this item!
Summary: I purchaced the Sangean WR-5 cause I already own the Sangean PR-D5 and was really impressed with the sound and its great AM and FM reception, and all my friends would comment how such a small radio produces great sound and reception.
