I bought this radio because I live in a fringe reception area. I had an AM/FM/CD stereo unit that had manual tuning. It was next to impossible to tune the AM station I listened to, and because it was a stereo it had a rather large footprint for my shelf. The new Colby unit has a small footprint, digital tuning, and as a bonus picks up the weather channel. It also has 10+10AM+FM memory, but it will forget them if it loses power and doesn't have the 3 D-cell batteries. No big deal. I put batteries in it and it does just what I wanted.
Reasonalby priced radio to get radio broadcasts and also weather alerts. All for less than $25.00
I had it shipped to the store for 99 cents. Enjoying the radio already.
This radio has excellent reception, which is difficult to find in an inexpensive radio. I have several expensive portables, (over $150). Althought this radio doesn't have all their features, it has not disapointed me. Would highly recomend, and have done so.
I received this radio as a christmas gift, and it is great!! I have used it all around my house, and now I am getting one to use in my garage/shop. This is a fantastic little radio.
This small radio is great. The batteries last a long time, and the sound quality is 4 stars for rural areas.
I am able to manually tune in stations I wasn't able to with other radios that don't use digital tuning. I live in a very rural area and this matters a great deal. I went from 2 stations to 7 stations, the minute this radio arrived at my house. I also LOVE the NOAA station, for up to the minute local weather broadcasts.
If any of you live in "the sticks" & can get AM radio, this is a must buy!
great sound & definetly a bargain!!!
For the first time in 15 years my mother in law was pleased with her Christmas gift from us! She was looking for a radio that would run on batteries in case of a power failure during bad weather. This little radio really fit the bill. She enjoys the weather station that's available as well! I absolutely recommend this radio for your home's emergency preparedness kit.
The features on this radio were as advertised, but the tuner was very poor.
returned to local Walmart for full refund minus S&H great service, poor product.
The radio was exactly what I needed!! I got it for my future mother-in-law. She'd been wanting one for a while, but never found one. She was so excited when she opened it!
I had an old weather radio that used cheap sliders for volume control and a round knob on the side to change station. The volume slider knob became loose & would no longer change the volume and the station change operation got to a point where you had to turn it around a couple of time to get it to change, then you overshot the station. Was looking for a digital tuner and a standard round control for volume. This radio fit the bill. Works good and was easy to set up.
Purchased this for my mother-in-law who wanted a no frills radio - not a CD player, not an ipod speaker, not an alarm clock - just a battery operated radio to use when the power went out. She was very happy with the gift, just what she wanted.
This radio performs very well. I like the digital tuning - it is not necessary to keep turning a tuning dial to receive a radio station without interference - set the AM or FM frequency and receive optimum performance. The operation of the radio and all its features is a little complex so it is necessary to carefully read the instruction manual and keep it handy for those of us that sometimes experience senior moments. Another feature that I like and is one of the reasons that I purchased this radio is the earphone jack. I like to use the radio during the night along with a pillow speaker. Works great! The NOAA feature also works very well.
Good sound quality. PPL tuning works. Substantial battery power. Good value at it's price point.
I researched many radios before I made my purchase. I work in an old building with poor reception so finding the right radio was a must. This radio had the digital tuner with a ton of pre-settings that I was looking for. The NOAA was an added bonus for me. The Site to Store was convenient and the shipping time was waaaay shorter than what Walmart predicted :) This radio doesn't blow me away but it definitely gets the job done.
The one thing I dislike about this radio is it is so lightweight, I guess it's lighter than a pocket book. Press any of the front buttons and its guaranteed to tip/knock over the entire unit. You definitely have to use two hands to operate it. Also, I normally listen to radio on weekends for at least 4 hours. It tends to emit a smell like burnt plastic/rubber. I understand that most electronics are like that initially, but with this one for how long?
This is a great deal for the money. I am pleased with my purchase.
My Son Loves The Radio!! He Can Play His Favorite Station Anytime He Wants Now It Came In Great Shape And On Time. I Would Recomend This Seller Because He Is Honest And Keeps His Promise
Excellent for the requirement thereis no better deal than that.
When I turn this radio on, I hear nothing but static. I have learned if I push the band button twice, the station comes in clear. I will be returning this radio, after all why should I have to come up with and use a work around in order to enjoy this product.
Difficult to use and cheaply made. I returned it a few days after I bought it. No problem in returning it.
