I was surprised at how small this radio is. I thought the sound would be tiny also but it sounds better that I had expected upon first seeing it.
The 2ea AA Eneloop Nimh batteries that I used to power it seem to last forever (over 2 months of daily use for several hours each day), so this radio is very efficient. I bought is to use outside for AM talk radio and it is perfect. I tried the short wave bands and received many stations from all over the world (at night) so it would be good in case of apocalypse or zombie infection, assuming that there is someone still broadcasting.
Though I expected a slightly larger radio, the size is actually perfect for me and I would recommend it due to the price, quality, and low battery consumption.
Update - I haven't really used this much during the first year but didn't expect to anyway. A pair of charged AA batteries can run this one for 2 weeks being on 24 hrs a day, I tested it. So this would be perfect for throwing into a pocket for a camping trip or similar. I wiil just add though that the main reason I got it was for nostalgic reasons because my old man used to listen to shortwave when I was a kid, he had a a bigger more expensive on the counter size and a few this size. (this was well before the internet btw) Anyway I used to borrow it sometimes because there were some cool shortwave programs in the evenings and through the night. Various cool music programs coming from lots of European locations, Japan, Moscow, south america and elsewhere around the world, conspiracy, the well known news and talk/interview shows, cool paranormal mysteries and discussion themed programs, entertainment etc. It's just too bad so many of the popular well known shortwave broadcasters and programs from the 80' and 90's aren't around like since the internet started, some ppl may know which ones I'm talking about. Unfortunately those various fundamentalist religious nuts broadcasting from the southern American states especially are still broadcasting.
However that's not the Tescun radio's fault, I was experimental surfing last night finally and caught some shortwave stations coming in clear and loud from Europe and elsewhere, so the radio does it's job fine, I just wish those religious nuts would stop broadcasting their crazy talk and just disappear. Like I said the am and fm work great so it's at the least perfect for camping trips and travelling or to the beach, etc.
Though I would love a backlight and more precise numbering on the analog dial, because it comes exactly as displayed on the site and performs very well, this is without a doubt a 5-star radio.
One of my biggest concerns buying the radio was being able to tune precisely - but the knob moves 'slowly' and unlike cheaper radios, the dial 'sits' in position very, very well and makes it easy to tune in.
I purchased this unit as a replacement for my Tecsun PL-380. Though I prefer that radio in many aspects, it actually is quite comparable. Tecsun clearly provides quality across the board on their radios. I personally prefer the analog unit for tuning (though I do miss the exact frequency to help locate the station online).
