I have been looking for a good, simple bedside radio for 3 years now, something without an "ipod" or fancy plug-in speakers or any of that other trash. I've spent $25-40.00 each on other radios over the past few years, only to be disappointed. This Sangean is terrific! Besides the great sound, the "nap" timer/alarm is perfect for that "power-nap"-you don't have to mess around with setting the alarm. The push-buttons are a big plus, as I switch stations all the time. The alarm selections and the complete display of all the things that are set and going on with the radio are just fantastic-you know exactly what you have set up on the radio at a quick glance. I couldn't be happier and I may order a "back-up'" for myself or for a gift!
Only had this for a couple weeks...still getting used to all the new options my old clock/radio did not have. I love waking up without the beeping blare; a gradual realization of sound is so much better. Going to sleep at night is also enhanced with the "sounds" of nature, etc. I'm hooked on the "ocean" waves. So far, it's what I wanted/needed and a whole lot more. The projected time on the ceiling is probably the best part...just look up and know the time! Classic.
after the purchase of more expenceve prods, this at a much lowsr price than 4 other radios, this at the lowest price, did the best of them all. thank U!
We needed to replace a small portable weather band alert radio that was damaged by leaking batteries. After researching as best we could, we found that this Sangean radio, though not a "portable," offered everything we wanted. The radio offers choices not available from others - intensity of warning signals, ability to connect to external warning devices, decent AM/FM reception and sound, and a full display showing the kind of alert being received, as well as a scrolling history of past alerts. We liked the fact that both an a/c adapter and rechargeable batteries are included, and there is provision for AA batteries, as well.
