Summary: So far so good. Not staticky, portable, batteries last forever, stations easy to find, antenna works great. The only down-side is that this nice little radio can be purchased for about $3 cheaper on Amazon.
Summary: Compact, good sound quality, picks up a plethora of stations (which most of my clock radios and other portable radios can't). Great radio for the price. Bought it to use when I'm working in the yard. Haven't had it long enough to determine battery life--which is why I gave it a 4 in that category.
Summary: Convenient and almost perfect for someone who listens to AM radio. I have one problem I wish it were more compact or smaller in size for handling purposes especially with technology as it is today.
Summary: This Sony AM/FM radio is great for any emergency bag or for an unexpected power outage. It's small enough to carry while not weighing very much. This is a dependable device to have for news and weather reports. Who knows when the internet will go out during a crisis?
