The hardest part about reading reviews is putting it in context of the reason why the reviewer bought the product. At let's be honest, everyone has different requirements for why they want something. I have a large garden and I like to listen to music. A lot. I don't like headphones because I like to be aware of what is happening around me. All my music is on mp3 players - I use multiple SanDisk Clips - so really what I wanted was an amplifier and speakers that works off batteries. So that meant some type of boombox. And it needed to be loud. And audio quality is not critical when you're moving around outside. After scouting the internet almost all of the 'few' (i.e. had an Aux input) boomboxes seemed to rule themselves out in the reviews I read as just not punching their weight. Oh, yeah, and I didn't want to keep cost to between $75 - $150 which I thought reasonable for what I wanted. So pretty much ended up with the following options

Sony ZSH10CP Heavy Duty CD Radio Boombox
DEWALT DC012 Worksite Charger/Radio
Milwaukee 2590 20 M12 Radio
Milwaukee 2790 20 12 Volt to 28 Volt Jobsite Radio

Other jobsite radios were outside my acceptable price range.
Fortunately I was able to find places locally with each of these models so I could have a listen to them. The Milwaukee 2790 20 not only was the loudest by far but also has pretty good sound quality. The Milwaukee 2590 20 just didn't have the volume but it is small and quality was good so if size is important this maybe for you. The Sony ZSH10CP was terrible and really isn't that much smaller than the 2790 20 and the Dewalt. The Dewalt wasn't as loud as the 2790 20 and didn't seem as well made.
These really weren't a consideration for me: I wanted a portable music amplifier.

I used this radio today at the small job shop factory where I work. Today's task was in an isolated area, so it was a perfect opportunity to test out my new Milwaukee radio's power with my iPod without bothering anyone (I listen to 1940's-1950's pop--Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Pied Pipers and all that; not everyone's cup of tea). Putting this up against the collective noise of a large Pines tube bender (bending 1-1/2" x 2" rectangular tube with 1/8" wall, so this thing is BIG), with two loud 3-phase motors running the hydraulics, a small CNC vertical milling center (Mori-Seiki MV-35, for the record), and an old 60+ year-old rattletrap of a Delta drill press, it performed brilliantly. At 1/2 volume on the radio (iPod itself cranked to full power), I was able to hear my tunes very clearly above the din, even from 15-20 feet away! The 40-watt amplifier is certainly no slouch! At 3/4 volume, still no distortion, and I could hardly bear the volume level, even amidst the other machinery. Nice compact design fits easily in the bottom compartment of my toolbox cabinet.

There is also a handy 12-volt automotive-type powerport on the back of the unit. I suppose it would have been nice to include some 3-prong 120V AC outlets on it, but I don't really miss them (I suppose that will be the next improvement Milwaukee makes on it). I also love the fact that it takes all my M-series Milwaukee batteries--it will run all day on a fully-charged M28 battery with juice to spare. The sealed MP3/iPod compartment is vital to keeping your tunesplayer clean, and it does so effectively. It comes off as an exceptional unit, and I would recommend it to anyone. I am even thinking of investing in another one so I can keep one unit at work and one at home--it's THAT good!

Have it.No problems,does have an audible thump when you turn it off. It does sound great though.Sat it side by side with the dewalt dc012 [with an ipod bugged in] This was better hands down and the compartment protecting the ipod is a good thing to have on a construction site. I would have bumped it up another star if it charged the batteries. Charger feature would probably jack the unit cost up significantly and people are very price sensitve in this economy. Very happy with this radio so far.

Color Name: NA Verified Purchase
I bought this radio a year ago, I kind of rushed in without researching anything. I assumed a lot with this radio, like it comes with a battery, and when I plug it in it charges the battery... Well I was way off. I got the radio in the mail, and found out I had to go to Home Depot for a battery. I bought the 80 dollar 18V battery and came home and put the battery in and later found out, the radio doesn't charge that battery. So I went back to Home Depot and purchased the 50 dollar recharger. At that point I had total regret.

Over the last year, I figured I am going to get my monies worth on it, and I used it often. I primarily bought it to use on my fishing boat, and to entertain during cornhole at the house. But, I use it everywhere, everyday, while I am in the shower I listen to it at the least.

The best thing about this radio is the 18V battery I got lasts forever. I charge it only every week and a half, and I am not sure if it really needs it or not. Also the big upside to this radio is the reception. I finally have a radio I can walk within 2 feet of, and not have it lose the station. It has excellant reception!!!!

The preset station setup on the radio could be annoying though. If I was on preset 9 and wanted to go to preset 8, I have to hit the button 10 times to get to it because it only cycles in numerical order 1-9. Not a big deal to me though, I only listen to 2 stations and all 10 presets are those two stations.

The sound quality is superb. It has a very nice balance of lows and highs!!! It's not a Bose, but DEFINATELY not a GPX either.

I see a lot of people complaining about the popping sound when you turn off the radio.
