I have tried the Tecsun 600, Tecsun 390, Grundig 350, Grundig 450...I liked this Tecsun 660 better than all of them...

I liked the extreme sensitivety on all bands along with the SSB sync. USB/LSB and broad/narrow band filters...None of the above come close in sensitivety..My first night of scanning it picked up 38 SW stations inside a 2 story house from the bottom floor using only the built in antennna on DX at about 10 ft. from the nearest window...It also scanned 17 AM stations and 43 FM stations...Considering the nearest station is 35 miles away I was impressed at the results...

The Sync. for both USB and LSB seperately is very sensitive and very impressive at removing unwanted noise and hiss...Even better than just using the standard USB/LSB filter...

Only the Grundig 350 has a better speaker but not by much...The dual 390 speakers obviously sound more stereo like but they are tinny, IMHO...The 660 speaker has a deep pleasant sound which exudes quality...Keeping in mind of course the size of the speaker and the entire price of the radio...

On a whim I decided to by these amplified speakers and they are superb:
[...]
Now I have a super sensitive radio with a truly awesome sound for $135...Can't beat it!!!

I liked the raised buttons as they are easier to find in the dark once their positions gets memorized...
I like the external charging of the internal NmH batteries...
I like the smooth rotary tuning, volume, and BFO knobs...

One can sync. lock on a station and rarely does another signal leak through...
I could keep going on and on about all the little things I like about this quality radio..Even the smooth pigskin like soft case is high class...

Also, the Amazon description indicates it has a 5v USB jack, but it doesn't...Not important to me but thought I would mention the error for others...

This entire radio just exudes quality...Buy it and don't look back..

I can't see anything wrong with this radio, its like have a high quality receiver in a small package. I have listened to SSB as if the people were standing in front of me talking. I have stretched out long wires in my yard for 80m,40m,20m and 15m and this radio shines. I previously went through 3 other portable all within 3 weeks and sent them back and gave this one a try. No looking back with upper and lower SSB it's awesome. Don't let the stand stop you, if you want to see what is on the air get this radio. I have listened to Vietnam, Taiwan, Japan, China, Cuba etc. Now when you do get this radio, try it for a few days because if sun spots or storms were involved you may think there is something wrong. Wait for the weather to clear up for a good opinion of this radio.

Overall, this is a very good radio in terms of available features for the money.
In terms of Shortwave, SYNC detection circuitry works well on stronger signals in minimizing adjacent station interference. Single Side Band reception remarkably stable for a radio of this size and price. Being able to select between Upper and Lower side bands is a definite plus. Sensitivity is good with built-in whip antenna and much better when using supplied external antenna wire. Selectivity is average. Two supplied bandwidths are well-chosen and make an audible difference in reception quality.
AM and FM sections of this radio are well above average in terms of sensitivity though both suffer, to some extent, from ghost images meaning selectivity is about average. Audio quality is OK.
Long Wave not an issue at my location since most stations that can be heard are navigational beacons.
AIR band reception is fair, at best, and really requires a SQUELCH control for best reception.
PROs:
Lots of features for the money including SYNC detector, selectable Upper/Lower sidebands, and bandwidths
Built-in NiMh charger with included batteries means you will not need to purchase batteries for a long time
Multiple tuning features and huge memory storage capacity
Above average sensitivity on SW/AM/FM bands
Informative LCD display
CONs:
Some concerns about build quality
Selectivity average but considering price of radio a minor issue
AIR band reception below average
Wish the radio had a LINE OUT jack
Minor quibble: Wish the knobs on the side of the radio were recessed inside the cabinet a little bit. I had the tendency to bump into them and change the frequency.

All-in-all, a very good radio with many useful features. In many respects, this may be one of the finest SW portable radios on the American market today.

I'm a long time world band radio user, and Amateur Radio Operator. I already have too many radios, but decided to buy the TECSUN PL600 on a whim. I have to say I'm more than pleasantly surprised at its performance. The first band I tested was the air band. It picked up all the local air traffic in my area without any issues such interference or bleedover from other bands. Next I tuned in several English SW broadcasts from Europe, etc. Again, the radio performed excellently. The narrow filter allowed me to separate stations when the bands were crowded. The SYNC Detector works good. It's not equal to the SYNC Detector on my Sony 2010, but is on par with my Sony 7600GR. SSB was where I was really amazed. I went to the 75m Amateur Band to see if I could hear anything using the telescopic antenna. After doing a little fine tuning, I picked up a conversation that was so loud and clear, I feared it was bleedover from another band. It wasn't. It was two Amateur Radio Operators having a QSO on the other side of the country. To pick them up as well as I did using a portable radio, and telescopic antenna was amazing. As for FM and AM (MW), all I can say is it picks up both bands well. I didn't do any extensive testing on either, other than attempt some MW DXing. I didn't pick up any distant stations, but it is probably the current conditions in my area, and not the radio's fault. DX has been poor by me lately on all my radios. All in all, I couldn't be any happier with the PL660, especially at this price point. It sounds good, performs great, and has features found on radios costing much more. If I would change one thing on the PL600, it would be to add a RF gain control, and remove the sensitivity switch. If you're looking for a portable world band radio that is loaded with features, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg, I highly recommend the TECSUN PL660.
