  • Summary: Hace algun tiempo compré un radio marca Sony que recibe estaciones de am-fm-tv, me gusta muchísimo ese radio pero tiene la desventaja que no se conecta a la luz, solo utiliza pila por eso decidí comprar este radio que también recibe esas estaciones, lo compré usado y llegó en perfecto estado, parece nuevo, a mi me ha funcionado muy bien porque vivo en Mexico y aquí todavía tenemos canales de televesión análogos, tiene el tamaño ideal para conectarlo en cualquier lugar de...

Great reception, simple, durable

Flathead McGee, Amazon

  • Summary: We picked one of these up a few years ago and have been quite satisfied with it. I got it in at a big box store where I could try them out to see how well they picked up faint signals. It picked up more stations than any other radio that they had. I also like the fact that it doesn't require a wall wart to plug it in. The cord can be stowed or partially stowed to reduce cord clutter. It sounds just fine for the price.

Great little radio

Nancy "bass finder", Amazon
30 March 2010
  • Summary: Very nice little radio. AM reception is exceptionally good in comparison with other radios we've tried. We live in the mountains and reception has been very marginal using other radios. This Sony is very clear. The weather radio works very well. FM is very acceptable and the sound quality is very good. There is an attached electric cord tucked away in the battery compartment that is very nice to have when using the radio at home.

Excellent sound. No TV, so misadvertised and overpriced!

K. Chaffraix "Chaffraix Arts", Amazon

  • Summary: I live in a house without television and needed to be able to listen to some TV over the radio. This little Sony was expensive, but worth it for the television channels. But post digital TV, this little box gets ZERO in terms of TV signal, and I am not happy about that at all, considering I paid $135.00 to have it. That said, the sound is excellent. It's light, portable, and gets a nice NPR signal, even with the antennae down.

Not the Radio I thought I Purchased

George Stricker, Jr., Amazon
30 January 2010
  • Summary: The only reason I purchased this radio was for the television signal feature. Stupid me. This radio doesn't receive digital signal and therefore was of no use to me. I have other radios of similar quality which are just fine. Therefore, I returned this one. Watch out for the details regarding this radio before you purchase it.

Digitally disappointed

Mount my fish "invisable pattern maker queen", Amazon
26 March 2009
  • Summary: Sony ICF-36 Portable AM/FM/TV/Weather Radio Sound was a bit static when listening in the factory work place. After purchasing this radio, I found out that it will stop working w/ the change to digital signal in June. The reason I purchased this was for the TV band in the first place. I have since returned this purchase.

Excellent for emergencies

DidOnce, Amazon

  • Summary: I chose this radio as a backup for power/cable outages. The TV band gets good reception (I'm in a metro area with few hills). Unfortunately, when TV goes digital in February '09, the TV reception feature won't work. Sony notes this on the box. I've always had good luck with Sony products - you can't beat the quality and dependability. The radio is a good buy, even without the TV feature.

  • Summary: If you need a battery backed up radio that had many uses then I would recommend this one.
  • Pros: Good reception, battery operation, weather band.
  • Cons: None for us.
