This radio was nice to look at but the sound was poor quality and the reception was poor. I bought it as a gift so I was very disappointed

I was a bit hesitant to purchase this radio since the reviews were so mixed. But for the price I decided to take a chance and buy one for my wife. I was pleasantly surprised. I own several old vintage radios and this one would fit right in. The reception is not great but is much better than I expected for a radio without a telescoping antenna for the fm band. The sound is pretty good also. My wife loves her new radio and wants us to buy some more as gifts.

This radio is made very well for the price, and has great sound, considering it is powered by three AA batteries. I plan to give it to my husband to take along on his fishing trips. He is a baby-boomer and prefers this to an Ipod! Ha!!!

I love this radio! You can hang it up wherever you are, and it was my lifeline when I lived off the grid. Quite indestructible, and an excellent gift item to bring back memories of the good old days.

This radio is not made nearly as well as my old one called something like "The Beachboy's Sixty's Transister Radio".

This model that I just bought is not made nearly as well. It is flimsy in both look and feel and the radio dial is really hard to adjust. The numbers are so close together, it's hard to dial into a station. The reception, once getting to the station, is not good either.

This is a poor replica of a transistor radio. It is hard to tune and picks up a small portion of the stations available. Even after you get a station tuned in the radio cuts in and out. Would not recommend this radio.

The bullet points describing this radio were:
•Aux Input
•Am/FM Receiver
•Foldable Carrying Handle
•Rotary Telescopic Antenna
•Powered By Ac Or Optional 4 C Batteries

The one I received had no Aux Input, no telescopic antenna, and did not have the option to be powered by AC. I would not have ordered it had I known that it did not at least have the Aux input to play music apps through it from my phone. The reception is hit or miss, and I just have the general feeling of being ripped off. Luckily my kids threw the box that it arrived in away before I got home, so I'm now stuck with it.

I bought this for my dad who is a radio collector. He loved it. It's compact but puts out a loud, clear sound and works great!
