Great product and well suited for Indian conditions

A radio was on my wishlist for a long long time. Finally, when I decided to buy, I had to choose between this one and a Sony. I went with Philips as our previous radio which was also Philips was virtually unbreakable and lasted for several years. Another plus point is its great reception quality. Last but not the least, the sound quality is quite good and does not involve too much tuning to get the right frequency.

Good sound quality..Bit bulky.. Few disadvantages

Ordered it last week and got it delivered in a day - usual flipkart grade delivery :-)

Minus
1) The product is not same as what is shown in the photo. The tuning band is vertical and spoils the look of the radio. So the glowing tuning knob also is positioned relatively lower.
2) No DC adapter included - At least flipkart should sell it separately - Three large size batteries can drain quite fast, given the sound output of this radio.
3) When i tried to tune FM 104 (Radio Fever), the slider wanted to settled little higher than where the 104 marking was. I think there is some calibration pro...

4) Bulkier than i expected :-(
5) In gloomy / rainy weather, you might have to pull out the aerial/antenna for better reception, which is bit annoying as it meddles with the carry handle.
6) Don't think anyone will carry this bulky radio, as a torchlite - In my opinion, the torch/flash lite feature is useless.

Plus
1) Great sound quality / output
2) Value for money
3) Easy to use for elders as well - after all radio is not a gadget anymore :-)

A good radio for such small price

I have received this radio yesterday. First use impression was good. It tuned to many stations on MW, SW and FM without much tuning efforts. Radio is needed responsive to weak signals as they claim. Here are my observations.

Pros:
a) Instant delivery in almost 24 hours.
b) Effortless tuning to even SW channels
c) Earphone jack which is rare in radio sets
d) Very good plastic body quality feels very sturdy
e) Fantastic sound quality
d) Has built-in tiny torch but it useless considering weight of this radio

d) Has built-in tiny torch but it useless considering weight of this radio

Cons:
a) Looks like a lunch box
b) Batteries not included so you have to get three R20 (bigger ones) batteries in advance or
run to market to buy when you receive package.
c) Not delivered as shown in picture. Comes in vertical scale not horizontal as shown in
picture. It reduces look quality. Flipkart must update the picture to show real product
image.

Overall a good quality buy with this price.

Great product

I ordered this product from flipkart and had it on my door step in 3 days. Great service from flipkart!! Great work guys. You continue to please your customers with such great service

To talk about the radio its a great piece of hardware. The reception is good. Even at my home which is at ground floor the reception quality is quite good. The 425 mW speaker is one strong speaker and when tuned properly the sound quality is quite astonishing. If I set the volume to max I bet my entire building would definitely turn their ears..

One thing I did notice is that the radio doesnt look exactly as shown in its picture. The difference is that the tuning knob is smaller and the tuning strip is vertical and not horizontal as in picture shown on flipkart website. So the overall look is a bit down than the pic. But overall the radio is good.

Cons:
Some times its annoying to tune it manually. I did not get any batteries with this radio nor any AC adapter.

Great product for price and awesome service by Flipkart!! Keep up the good work guys!!!

FM radio

I was looking for a simple, portable and stand-alone FM radio with good audio quality to listen to FM radio (almost)all day. Since I could not find a product with digital tuning and a decent speaker system, I had to settle for this product which has only manual (analog) tuning. Clunky, as expected, but OK.

The on-off switch (also the volume control) is poorly calibrated, with the result that it does not give a smooth operational experience. The LED light comes as a nice bonus, which can be useful. I guess the product is designed for rural use rather than for a city-dweller like me.

Overall, a nice product, especially for nostalgic people like me as it reminds one of the good old days when a portable 'transistor radio' was a status-symbol besides being the only source of news and entertainment. If you are in the fifties or above, you will know what I am talking about. The excitement of catching faint, wavy and static-filled cricket commentary live from Australia in the early morning hours was indescribable.

Very poor AM/SW reception

This product is great if you want to listen FM frequencies. This radio has very poor SW reception. You won't find even a single radio station on SW band. Sound quality is very clear and crisp on FM band.
For FM listeners great product.

Good radio, incomplete accessories ...

Good powerful radio, but what they don't mention is that it DOES NOT come with an adapter. As long as you're willing to make the effort to go and buy one separately, worth buying.

Also, the radio doesn't look like the one in the picture. Few cosmetic differences.
