Summary: Purchased for my 96 year old mother to listen to baseball games. She required lightweight, which it is, and straightforward tuning, etc. It met expectations though it arrived without the promised batteries. However, the vendor was immediately responsive and adjusted the cost. My mother likes it!
It brings in the stations super well. This was my main concern

Summary: Sound quality okay- the speakeis loud so I can hear it while cooking. It brings in the stations super well. This was my main concern, because the NPR station is 75 miles from us, and I can usually get it only on the car radio or a radio on a window sill while holding the antenna. Worth every penny!
Excerpt: Great portable radio with BASIC sound. Don't expect crystal clear and heavy base. But for the money you can't beat it for a good, portable radio that has corded power and uses batteries. Overall a grade "A" value.
Excerpt: I realize that this sounds like a paid endorsement but it is not. I could not be more pleased with this radio (actually I bought 2 because of the other positive reviews). Overall package design is great, reception is exceptional, sound is excellent, and controls are great. No cons.
