To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This radio was bought for my wife who just suffered a stroke. It does everything I need a small radio to do. I use the clip on the back to attach to her pillow. It brings in weak signals better than any other small radio I have ever owned. Great battery life. Definitely recommend.
A great little radio. It has better sound quality than my $600 Bose Wave radio (which has lots of bells and whistles but the sound is poor). A minor problem I had is that the radio separates easily from the belt clip and it fell to the ground. No problem as I keep it in my pocket.
I've been using Sangean readios for years. The most recent one seems to lack power. The strength of WOR (710) is lacking the strength my previous units had. Should you feel bad about this -- as I do -- send me a replacment.
