reception a little weak but overall not bad
Love this radio! This is the third radio I have purchased from Retevis, and could not be happier. I have two of the Model 115's I use to listen to my mp3's and radio at work. The reason I like the Model 116 better, is that it has a usb port I can insert a memory stick and listen to selected music playlists. The micro memory card works well, too. The sound is good quality, and a higher volume than I would normally expect from a radio like this. The battery has a good long run time, and is easily charged with a usb cable. So no batteries to buy! This is a must to carry for travel and to have handy at work. Fits in my pocket without an issues. If you like music, radio, and playing your mp3's - get this radio.
I liked nothing about this product. The battery ran down very quickly and we didn't receive a charger with purchase. Sound was dull also.
Very poor performance. Bad sound quality and confusing controls. Bad product disguised by a good description and price. Don’t bother.
V-116 is great radio. An I'm having good time with it. Love MP3 side of radio. Shortwave is really good since with long antenna. As well as FM. But why I give it 4 stars is the MW bands are very quiet. But that can be fix with MW loop antenna.
Its a good little radio, though I mostly listen to podcasts on the sd card which are easy to play and find. What is a bit irritating is that the lock function does not lock the tuning and its very easy to knock the tuning knob and lose your station if you are carrying it around. If not for that would give it 5 stars- looks pretty as well.
i got this for my mom. she likes to listen to a cd at bedtime. she was able to use it however the sd card reader doesnt work. it plays for abot a minute then it makes a clicking nouse then plays fir another few seconds then clicking noise again. the clicking noise is like the unit is reading the card in super slow motion. if my mom didnt take so long to try it and discover the players incapability i would have returned it. complete garbage. skip it for sure
I actually think this is a great little radio. It was a gift from a representative of the company who makes this radio. The positives are as follows:1. Nice travel size2. Shortwave access3. Rechargeable4. TF Card ( SD card) access5. Good FM receptionNegatives1. Bad AM reception (Typical of this radio class) A inductive coupling antenna solves the problem.2. Tiny speaker is only suitable for quiet enviornments.3. Shortwave is missing some frequencies, 9395 WRMI can't be tuned.Overall, this radio is s good value and serves it's purpose well.
