  • A. Oh yes. It is loud. Too loud for my liking. At the same time, I can barely hear it from the other end of the house, so loud might be a good thing.

  • A. If you can get it to respond to the alert signal it will wake the dead. I read a comment that if the radio is programmed for specific county codes (S.A.M.E.) the radio won't respond. I had my radio set to all specific county codes for my local transmitter and the radio has yet to activate. I now have it set for ANY county to see if it works. There are two jacks on the radio that are not explained in the instructions or on the otherwise excellent videos on YouTube. One jack I assume is for connection to an alert device for someone who is hearing impaired, but no details. I will leave a more detailed review as soon as I verify the alert function. As of yet, I would not entrust my life to this radio.

Decent weather band radio for the money (poor FM)

After getting two defective brand name radios in a row, I decided to try something new. This radio has outlived my brand name radios and has performed very well as a weather radio. Pros: Alerts have been reliable for me, reception is decent (comparable to the name brand). Cons: Tone is poor for FM radio listening, can hear the weather band in the background while listening to the FM band, menus are not user friendly (hold on to your manual), siren volume is not easily adjustable, siren duration choices are limited. I see the reviews stating that the alarm did not sound. Are the radios positioned where they get good weather band reception? Are they tuned to the weather frequency servicing the local area? Almost always plugged into AC, but still on original 3 AA batteries I think.

I'm in Tulsa OK and work on wells out in the fields. I bought this radio to help out in case I loose communication and need to know what's coming. This radio seems great, but does not pick up any FM, AM or WEATHER BAND signals, and does not pick up the test signals either. When you visit the web page cited in the manual it has been closed. The instructional youtube video is helpful enough - uploaded on March 31 2013. But the link given for the MaXX Digital is no longer there. So I'm guessing Walmart is just clearing it's inventory. The company who made this probably went out of business since walmart insist it's purchase price is below cost.

Contrary to the other reviews, my unit appears to be functioning properly. I was able to set it up with little difficulty, reception is better than the Midland unit I had previously and I have been alerted on several occasions to severe weather in my area. I do find it disturbing that the company is no longer in business as I would like to find an online user guide that could be downloaded to my computer. Unfortunately there is not one available. If you buy one of these be sure to save your user guide.

I have had this radio for long enough to determine that the most important function cannot be relied on. It has not responded to ANY test signals from transmitters at three separate locations and at least one known alert. It is unfortunate as the radio is well constructed and pulls in weather, AM and FM stations as good as any radio I have used. The sound is very good as well. I had planned on using this radio in my motor home that has been in extreme weather situations including Tornado Alley. I have read other reviews of this radio and the same issue was reported. I took a chance that it was user error. Walmart should seriously consider pulling this product from the shelf if this problem is not isolated.

I went and set the county codes just like it said to and never got the weather alerts. We were in a tornado watch and thunderstorm watch and flash flood warning for 2 days and not once did it go off, even when one of the counties that I selected was in a tornado warning. I double checked the county codes online and they matched what I put in for the county codes. By the way you have to go online to look up the county codes.

Worked for two weeks great then all of a sudden now none of the buttons work. Still alerts but the tone won't stop until you unplug the piece of junk. Do not buy this. Get a midland.

I walked around WalMart looking for a weather radio (they carry different ones in different sections at the WalMart where I shop) and this one was the lowest priced so I decided to give it a try. I've been using it for almost a year now and it has never let me down. I have been so pleased with it that I decided to write a review for it. Turns out, it seems others haven't had the same success stories. The main reason I went with this radio was the price. I should also mention that I've had two Midland weather radios before. On one, the LCD screen stopped working and the other had trouble receiving alerts, so I took the functioning parts from both and spliced them together to make a working unit again. It worked for about six more months before it too stopped receiving alerts too, which is why I was in the market for a new radio. When it comes to reception, I have had no issues. I actually pick up a handful of different weather radio signals from nearby cities as well. The radio, like most weather radios, has the programmable S.A.M.E technology so it can be set to alert you when there are any severe weather alerts for your county or the counties around you. Other nice features include a pretty standard alarm clock and support for both AC power and battery power (handy during a power outage). It also includes an AM/FM tuner, something that many other low-end weather radios don't include. I rarely use the AM/FM radio, so it doesn't really matter all that much to me, but some may find it nice. All in all, I'm pleased with this device. Maybe it's one of those hit or miss items.

For the price it was very good. I think I was expecting a little bit more but it does give the everyday weather for your area and the surrounding areas.
