    I've had this radio for a little over half a year now and it should be mentioned at the outset that absolutely nothing has broken on it, despite taking it on 2 Gold D of E expeditions! So, here’s what I think;
    The Good...
    -Its small size and weight (the smallest I could find for AM/FM digital tuning) along with the clip on the back makes it an excellent radio for cycling/ running etc as well as just walking around.
    -The digital tuner with presets is worth the extra money over a radio with an analogue tuner being quick and easy to change station. It is easy to preset a station as long as you know its frequency in the first place as the radio won't tune automatically.
    -Battery life. I have used this radio a lot (through headphones and powered speakers) and changed the AAA battery only once. The battery life indicator will warn you in plenty of time so that you don't run out of battery life in the middle of a football match!
    -Reception. FM reception is good - my powered speakers cause a lot of background noise unless the radio is placed as far away as possible. AM reception depends on the orientation of the radio of course but it is usually possible to position the radio while cycling and running to get reasonable reception. In the hills on a gold D of E training expedition FM radio was non existent so it was nice to be able to listen to MW radio – and the Man U vs Newcastle match!
    The Limitations - considerations for getting a different radio...
    -This radio does not have LW capability.

    A quality product as you'd expect from Sony. However, if you've big hands you might well find the controls fiddly, and consider investing in decent headphones (I'd recommend the Sennheiser PX100 if you don't like in-the-ear-style).

    Great little radio here from sony. The station presets (15 FM and 5 AM) have been a huge help because you don't have to tune all the time like I had to with my old radio!
    Only two (little) jibes at this.
    1. The headphone earbuds that come with it are rubbish so invest in a decent pair.
    2. If you do use you own earphones with a jack plug that is at 90 degrees to the wire then the volume dial isn't easily accessable which means twisting the headphone connection. This may result in loose conections. This is only speculation but I have had no problems.
    All in all a great little portable radio, great sound quality on both bands. :-)

    Nice and compact personal radio that looks like an mp3 player. Very easy to use but major problem was the poor reception. Everywhere I went around the house my reception was very poor. I've never had this problem with other stand alone radios. Even main FM stations were crackly and very difficult to listen to. Have sent it back.

    Lovely quality ,very compact and reasonably easy to programme in fixed

    channels.

    Reception as good as expected,even 5 live is better than previous radios I've owned.

    Earphones are average but good enough.

    Good value for money.

    I listen to the radio a lot and in many locations. DAB signal is still a bit rubbish here so this little friend is the next best thing in my experience. I like the pocket size, good reception (even in a basement office)the pre sets and the choice to set auto off so it switches itself off when I am listening to "Up All Night" on R5 live and drift off to sleep. I have had this one for two years now and used it every day. If anything ever happens to it I'll be ordering another one immediately.

    I love this little radio. It is small and light enough to be attached to any belt loop on your trousers without you knowing it is there. Having bought mine about a year ago it has been through the worst the UK weather could possibly throw at it without there being more than a few scratches on the case. If you took the AA battery out of it you'd think you had a feather in your hand. Don't be fooled in thinking its light weight means it's fragile either. I have dropped it numerous times to realize it is robust for even the most accident prone owner. The battery too seem to last for ages too. I change my Duracell Alkaline on average twice a month with a use of 8-12 hours per day. Previous reviews also refer to it having a bad reception. I haven't seen this at all. I use this radio in places where others have failed miserably. There was initially a problem getting the station (BBC R2) signal, but I honestly now see as a glitch given I have had no other problems from it. If it ever shows signs of coming close to failing, I'll be the first to buy another one of the same make and model to replace it.

    Update: Now been using this radio virtually every day for the past four years and it's still going strong. Not had any problems with it whatsoever during this time. I love it so much I've since purchased another one in case the first one gets lost or damaged.
