For the price it's a pretty good little portable radio, no, it's not the best radio you can buy but that's not what it's trying to be, it's trying to be a small portable AM/FM radio and it's doing it pretty darn well.
It sounds alright, good enough to clearly understand what people are saying and to enjoy music.
The controls are simple and easy to use and the battery life is pretty good too.
overall a great little radio, the only things i would like to see in version 2 are the use of AA battery's instead of AAA, the ability to tuck the FM antenna into the unit so it's flush and maybe a better AM antenna. other than that great job!
I wish I could rate this radio and another with even less than 1 Star. I bought this radio, (PRODUCT CODE: R055B), in the event of a storm where a cell phone radio would not work due to no internet connection. I had no reason to use radio until we lost power for almost a week. Out of the package, I get NO signal, nothing but static. Called customer service where the lady repeatedly asked the same questions and said she could and would help. She did nothing but advise that it could be replaced if I paid shipping. I have no idea why she would make this offer if I had problems like I did, why I would think that a replacement would be any better. Anyway, I wish I had read the other reviews before I bought this piece of junk. In addition, be aware that most GPX models are junk. I previously bought a GPX Dual Alarm Clock Radio PRODUCT CODE: C224B, which is IMPOSSIBLE to set and it to has horrible reception. I just want to alert future customers to be aware that GPX radios and Customer Service are absolutely useless and worthless. Find some other brand unless you like paying for lousy quality.
I was truly disappointed when our football team went from FM to AM. I was apprehensive about the reception on AM, it isn't the greatest. When I first activated the radio, I was truly surprised, It worked, indoors! The sound quality is great, in fact, I'm listening to a local sports show as I'm reviewing your product. Thank you, your product deserves a two thumbs up!
