This is a high quality product from Sony which, as you might expect, is sturdily built and extremely durable. It's quite bulky for a personal radio, and on removing the packaging you might be surprised by how thick it is. Also, it only sends sound to the one side of the headphones, so it's not ideal for listening to music. Otherwise it's fine and cheap at the price.

There was a time (before the digital revolution) when radios were simple devices that could be picked up for an incredibly low price. Luckily, one such device is still available, and it goes by the name of the Sony ICF-S22. No, it's not the most technically advanced radio; the speaker on the front is mono, and the overall look is rather 90's in style - but that's understandable considering the fact that this model has been available for years.

The radio is an FM / AM model so the longwave listers amongst you won't be catered for. For me, this isn't a problem, because I only use the device for Radio 5Live which is on medium wave. Constructed from a tough plastic the radio will survive a few knocks and scrapes - I've dropped it countless times and it has always lived to tell the tale. The great thing about the radio is how long batteries last in it - OK, this may not be the case if you decide to have it on full blast 24/7 - but at low volumes i've found that it has the potential to last for around three months before I need to consider changing the two AA's.

The long telescopic ariel (which folds neatly and clips to the radio's rear) ensures that you'll receive clear reception (unless you live in a REALLY awful reception area). The right hand side of the radio houses the volume dial, an earphone / headphone input, and a length or cord which is handy for wrapping round your wrist during transportation. The left hand side features the FM / AM selector switch, and a tuner dial which can be used to easily scroll through the available frequencies.

As I previously mentioned, the front speaker is mono - but the sound quality is pretty decent for the measly size of the device.

This is a simple, cheap and easy-to-use radio. It doesn't have any flashy features, but that clearly isn't the aim of this model anyway.

The styling is nice; it follows the classic handheld shape/layout, but the book-like curves give it a slightly more up-to-date feel. Oddly, it's slightly wedge shaped- one side is quite thick- but it fits well in your hand.

The FM reception seems to be pretty good most of the time. I can't really judge AM (MW) because I don't use that as much, and the PC or TV normally interferes with reception; but it seems okay (as far as MW goes, anyway).

You wouldn't expect something this size to give really loud hi-fi sound, and it doesn't. Given those limitations, speech is fine, and music is listenable, although hardly outstanding. Want better/louder sound? Get a bigger radio.

Headphone output only goes to one ear with normal stereo headphones. I don't blame them for omitting FM Stereo from a cheap one-speaker radio, but mono output in both ears would be nice!

This thing seems to go *forever* on two alkaline AA batteries, which is another of its strengths. Build quality also seems to be fine.

This is a simple, unpretentious radio that does its job at a decent price.

Addition (21 July 2013); After almost 5 years of regular use, the aerial attachment became wobbly then eventually completely loose. (This was because the screw attachment is made of plastic moulded into the case itself, and had broken off- not fixable). Still gave acceptable reception with it folded down at the side. Today, the volume control(?) and/or tuner seems to have stopped working. Given that I've had 7 years or so use out of this for little over a tenner, though, I'm buying another one of the same model!

We were looking for a small, battery operated radio for the kitchen and this FM radio is perfect. It's very compact, modern looks and good reception/clarity is idea - much better than the radio it replaced with faffy wires as aerials and plug in power source. Summary - cheap, simple and very good.

My other half wanted a small portable radio to use at work and be able to carry in the handbag. She didn't want an MP3 but a simple to operate radio. The Sony arrived in two days of ordering, is light weight, with clear sound and excellent build quality. She is over the moon with it and I scored some points even though it was under £12. Highly recommended if you want a straight forward device.

After 20 plus years growing runner beans the local deer started eating the plants. This radio hung from the poles in a plastic bag has kept them away allowing a bumper crop. Tuned to radio 4 which is mainly human voices. Runs for at least 2 weeks 24 hours a day on 2 AA rechargeable batteries.
