I was very disappointed with this radio and Sony's customer service. The sound was good and everything but the thing died after 16 months and can't be fixed. I think a radio that costs $60 should last longer then that. When I called Sony they just told me that there is only a 12 month guarantee and get lost.

Great little radio for the bathroom. Reception and volume are excellent. It would be more convenient if it took AA batteries.

Solid construction that feels like it will last. Good sound quality, even over the noise of the shower. Reception is good in my condo building. The buttons are super easy to use even when your hands are wet. I keep the unit at the far end of the tub, away from the shower head. No complaints at all. Glad I bought this radio!

FM signal comes in loud and clear; Radio with auto-off feature is easy to use --- times out itself if you forget to turn it off. Weather reception not so good in my area.
