Very Good Value

Pros:Very good reception and audio; very low price (about $10).

Cons:Not the easiest radio to tune.

I picked up two of these at Sears the other day on the strength of the other reviews I saw here. As others have said, the performance of this little radio is amazing given its price ($9.99 at my local Sears).

I've purchased several very cheap pocket radios over the years, and most of them will draw only local stations, which they spread over half the dial. My most recent disappointment was with a small pocket GE radio, which was dismal.

While this isn't going to win any reception contests against, say, a GE Superadio, it pulled in AM stations from New York, Chicago and New Orleans with no problem from my location in Detroit.

A nice surprise to me was the audio, which I found bright enough to be easily readable but not too tinny. Much better than I expected.

The only real downside is the radio is a bit difficult to tune, as a result of the small dial and thumbwheel. But it stays locked on to a station very well

But that's just a minor quibble; this is a terrific value for $10 or so.
