My radio purchased through Amazon and came from allnice.com and included 220 volt adapter (Amazon, pay attention:
YOU promise 120 v adapter right here at this webpage). No, this is not modern smart converter capable to work with any input voltage: it gives about 4 v - too low to work or charge the batteries. I'm too busy to return, will invest in 120 v adapter instead.
Updated April 5, 2015: The volume control is sensitive. A large sound level change occurs for a small volume control movement. Could be caused by the manufacturer incorporating a linear potentiometer instead of a logarithmic potentiometer often used for volume controls? Unfortunately, I don't have a schematic for circuit analysis purposes.
The case is definitely strong. Telescoping antenna is rugged and extends high. All-band signal sensitivity is not lacking. If a signal sounds noisy, it's not because of radio circuitry limitations; you might simply need a long-wire antenna to gather up more signal strength. Overall, I have to state this is a "big bang for the buck" product. You won't be disappointed.

3/5/16: On my third one. The first one died after 9 months, the second one after two months. Hopefully, third time is the charm. SSB is excellent, and with a 30 foot long random wire antenna the SW and FM does well. MW is okay and the SYNC feature helps a lot. But, I remember the days when a radio could last for several years without failing. My back up radio is a Grundig YB400PE. It is not as sensitive as the PL-660 but it is a lot more durable.
Update 1/14/2016: Great radio, had to buy a new adapter. Still no paperwork etc. regarding a warranty. This is important because the radio is now dead. I can't turn it on. The display flashes "Lo" and the battery icon flashes even with fresh batteries and numerous re-set attempts. Way past the 30 day Amazon return period. Sent an email to Top-Well. We'll see what happens. I see now that Amazon offers this radio from Kaito. A good move, no doubt. The radio is amazing, but Amazon really needs to be more careful about whom they fulfill orders with. I am not sure what to buy now. The pl-660 was great, but I see that other people have run into the same issue I did. Get one, and make sure the seller is legit. I have heard good and bad about Kaito.
