The only con - I wish it had BlueTooth connectivity and a USB power port. Oh well, can't have everything in life.
** Helpful Tips ~ It is possible to damage the Radio and/or Speaker's, when going to High Volume. Once the Radio and/or Speaker's are damaged,, it will never be as clear again,, and will need to be repaired. When going to High Volume,, Turn the Volume up Slowly, and alway's listen for Distortion; At the First Sign of Distortion,, turn the Volume back down,, until no distortion is heard. Letting the Radio Continue to Play at Distortion Volume Level's, Is Very Likely to Damage the Radio, Amplifier, and/or Speaker's.**
***UPDATE June3rd, 2015***
I've had this Radio since May of 2014. This Radio stay's out in my Garage, that is unheated and no Air Conditioner. It's the Best Radio that I've ever had. I also compared it to the Cube again. The Salesman Waved his hand over the Bosch 360, that caused the Volume to Change. The Salesman asked me if the DeWalt did that,, and I said, "In my All Metal Garage, with all the Doors Closed & No Window's, The DeWalt Does not change Volume, when I wave my hand over the Radio". This tell's me that the DeWalt must have a Better Antenna/Tuner or Both. How the DeWalt even receive's a good Signal with all the doors closed on a Metal Building, is Unbelievable. I even connected an Outside Antenna to the DeWalt,, and it made no Difference!!!
If you want a Good Radio,, Get This One,, Before it become's Outlawed. Seem's like anything now,, that has excellent performance get's outlawed for one reason or another.
I can't vouch for the 015 DeWalt; it may be as good too, but I only know about this radio.
3/6/16 Update: I've had this radio almost 2 year's now,, and so far no problem's. Recently because I have the Radio Charger, decided to get another 18 volt driver/drill, and went with a new DeWalt 720. Got 2 Coolgo 18v 2A Ni-Cad batterie's for 43 $'s on EBay. Used the Radio/Charger to charge them to full capacity. Took about 1 hour for one,, and about 30 min. for the other battery. This Radio Charger has a Smart charger that will let you know,, if there is something wrong with the batterie's, and once the Battery get's fully charged,, the battery can be left in the radio, because the Smart Charger is a Float charger and will not over charge the battery as well.
I had the radio playing in the garage, while the batterie's were chargeing and didn't notice any difference at all in the FM reception. This way,, I've alway's got a Fully Charged 18v Battery, when the other battery get's low,, of if I need the radio, when the power goe's out for an extended period. So far, I really like this radio.
When plugging into a 110V outlet, alway's use a "SURGE SUPPRESSOR", cause this Radio has Electronic's, that can get Fried by a Power Surge. I've used Surge Suppressor's for so long on all my electronic's that I forget that Some Folk's don't know to use them to protect their Sensitive Electronic Equipment. You can get them @ WalMart, and you don't have to get an expensive one,, but one designed to protect Electronic Tuner's/Radio Equipment. Some people have reported problem's after owning for a while; I suspect that their Radio has been Zapped by a Power Surge. I've kept mine plugged into a 110 Volt outlet Via a Surge Suppressor, out in the Garage, for over 2 year's now,, and so far so good.
Update 7/3/17 3 Year's Old:
This is the Best Radio that I've ever purchased. Stay's out in the Garage/Metal Building year round, below Freezing to 110F Degree's. Sound's just as good now,, as Brand New. When the Electricity Goe's off,, the Radio doesn't skip a Beat and goe's Straight to Battery Power.
Those people giveing this Radio Bad Review's Wouldn't Know a Good Radio if it Jumped Up and Bit Them In The Butt. Get You one, use a Surge Surpressor, that's what I've done,, and No Problem's. I hope when this one die's I'll be able to get another one that is as good as this one. If I had enough money, I'd get another Brand New one just like this one,, and keep it in the box,, till this one give's up the Ghost.
I've had this DeWalt Radio now for almost 4 year's and it still sound's just as good as the day I got it. Never intended to get any DeWalt Cordless Driver's as I didn't think that I could afford them. I needed to Replace my Harbor Freight Cordless Driver because batterie's were no longer available. Then I saw on EBay and Amazon, that the DeWalt DC720's cordless driver's were well within my price range. Now I have 2 DeWalt DC720's 1st one for 36 $'s and 2nd one for 38 $'s and One DC725 Hammerdrill for 41 $'s!! All three were New Drill's. With 18V DeWalt Driver's so popular, the Chinese 18V Batterie's will be around for a long long time. Got 2 18V 3amp yellow/black Chinese Batterie's for Dewalt for 36 $'s. Can't go wrong with the DC012 Charger Radio and DeWalt 18v Cordless Driver's Bare Tool on Amazon and EBay.
Worse than the weak tuner is when I put a battery in it for charging or off-plug use, it wipes all the pre-programmed channels in memory and takes the clock back to 12:00AM! I have a Milwaukee work radio in my horse barn, purchased in 2005, that strongly picks up stations inside steel enclosed walls, has much better bass, and can be turned up twice as loud. I regret buying this Dewalt unit in comparision! it is way overpriced for being such a weak, defective (in my case) product. I would have sent it back when I discovered the battery/memory wiping problem but I had already (stupidly) recycled the box by then and it would have cost too much in shipping costs to send it back, anyway (the downside to internet purchasing).
This model is in serious need of re-engineering. Note to Dewalt: Stop charging premium money for low end devices to maximize profit and, instead put some pride and quality in everything with the Dewalt name on it...the way fans of the brand expect it to be!
