my only disappointment was no program for automatic on/off for a period of hours, there is a program for minutes less than an hour, which is good for showering or bathroom time. battery life is approx. 60 hours for weatherband and fm, and approx 120 hours for am reception. overall a good product for the price. yes would recommend this to anyone as a shower radio, or just as a portable radio also.
Best shower radio for the price by far. It's durable and gets very good reception in the shower. I listen to AM for news and weather and it really delivers good sound.
One tip: set the presets beforehand it's a little difficult to program with soapy hands etc.
Love this radio, and the weather band is very handy. I love Sony radios and I've been using them for many years. I'll always keep buying them.
It's a well made am/fm radio with a good sized speaker along with 5 pre-sets
for radio stations. It works great. Great reception. Very happy with it except it costs
too much. However, this model says its "splash resistant" not water proof. I would recommend it.
Service at the pick-up counter has improved since our last order. Thank you.ez
We have had this radio for at least 15 years and it has been great. We are ordering another cause the top cover finally cracked.
I have had this for over two years and never had trouble it picks up stations very good.I have it in the shower and in the bath room no problems.I just bought two more for the house and to take Camping.
I have had this radio going on SIX YEARS now. I was purchasing a speaker system and checked to see if Sony still offers it just to see. I bought it in my senior year of High School and was a little weary of spending $50 on a shower radio but I have clearly gotten my money's worth. I use it when in the shower, while cooking in the kitchen, have brought it to the beach a number of times, and everywhere in between. I would say I only have to change the batteries (3-C) every six months or so and I play it EVERY DAY. OTher than the seal on the top cracking bit by bit as the years go on, it still works, clear as a whistle...or a nice radio!
I ordered this radio to replace an oldie that finally quit! The features are terrific, especially the timer - will definitely save on batteries! Love having the station presets - now we can easily find all our favorites. Excellent reception on the bathroom windowsill - sound is amazing, too! I am so impressed, I'm ordering 2 more for my kids.
I really love this AM/FM/Weather Band Digital Tuner Shower Radio (ICF-S79W), I have 2 of them, however I hope Sony will be considering adding a Bluetooth functionality to update this. It would be perfect then and better than any shower radio on the market today.
I purchased this to replace a previous model that was broken. I was disappointed to find that the unit no longer has the local TV band. This is a big disappointment in a otherwise great unit,
