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 purchased this mainly for the look and price and honestly did not pay much attention to the brand. I wish I had because this is the 3rd gpx item I've purchased that doesn't work. I had it for 6 months and had never used it. Today I tried to play cd and the only thing I kept getting was no no no it was brand new.called the company and was told to clean the lens even though it's never been used and that i f that doesn't work I can get a replacement for a fee. Their warranties are only 90 days. I know I should have tried it when I got it but like I said it was brand new. So lesson learned I will never purchase another gpx item. There warranties are too short and their products are not very good. And I did clean the lens but still saying no no no
at first no much. Then I plugged in ear phones still nothing. Once I pulled ear phones out it was finally playing but so softly you can barely hear it when it's wide open on volume!!!! Bid disappointment. If I still had the box I'd take it back to the store. Also the so called antennae is absent. Barely able to pick up radio station 15 miles away.
I just recently bought this unit. I had trouble with other units but this unit is. Really good. I had trouble getting it to record but it has fixed itself , I am really glad that I bought it thank you. Mark Williams
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!
For convenience and ease of use this portable CD player beats the competition. One advantage it has in comparison with all others is the ability to continue listening to a CD and not lose your place after pulling the plug with immediate and smooth transfer to the alternate power (6 "C" type batteries), Carry the still operating player to another room and plug it into another wall outlet without losing a second of the CD or having to hunt for your place. Unfortunately after seven months the player stopped working in the middle of a CD play and the LCD display began blinking "no" "no" "no" repeatedly. Nothing could get it to play CD's after this.
