Performance

I purchased this radio to listen while commuting and could not be more disappointed. The FM reception is spotty at best (my MP3 player gets better FM reception) and the AM reception is overloaded by interference on every station. If I had paid $10 for the radio I wouldn't be satisfied. The fact that I paid extra for a radio with such a good reputation makes me all the more disappointed. Don't believe the hype on this one. The best reception I get are from TV signals which come in clear. However, reception of these signals will end in less than a year.

Excellent reception

on 7/12/2008

This review is based on use at the NY/NJ area. I live in NJ and travel to work by train to NYC. PROS: - Excellent reception for both AM, FM and TV in NY/NJ area, that's what we paid for right? - Reception is equally good even without the earphone. I plug in a mini speaker at home and the result is excellent. I guess they make the anntena within the radio. - 5 preset per AM, FM1, FM2 and TV. - Light and small - Even with the Hold button off, if the earphone is not plugged in, and you accidentally press the power button, the radio shuts off itself after a short time, nice feather to save battery. CONS: - The 5 preset buttons on the top is annoying, they should've definitely put them on the front, whenever I try to click #1 or #2 I have to move my earphone away. Also, there is no up and down buttons for me to move thru presets. - DBB isn't at its best, I never used it, it makes the sound quality less clear and feel worse. - The Hold button should be at the side instead of at the back - A little bit pricey
