"Disappointing"1.5 starson by dlstrong
Pros: Great radio stations
Cons: Loses WiFi signal constantly and has to be re-set; it makes a weird hissing noise all the time. The controls are difficult to figure out and use. Lately it has started making a beeping alarm at 1:30 a.m. when no alarm has been set. Not impressed!
Summary: Overall I dislike the product and if I could return it to the store, I would (wish I had done so when I first bought it). I have had it for 8 months now and am going to have to replace it. Not the life-span I would have expected from a clock radio costing well over $100. Am currently awaiting a response from the company regarding the warranty.Since my previous posting, my radio continued to deteriorate. A 5:30 a.m. alarm began sounding and then radio stations I normally listen to started having all kinds of weird background noises. After unsuccessful communication with Audiovox regarding the problems with my radio, which was still under warranty (they wanted to replace it with a refurbished unit and I was not satisfied with that option), I returned it to the store where I purchased it. Thankfully they were gracious enough to grant me a store credit after learning just how disappointed I was with the product. Never again!!! I have to say that the radio had potential to be a great product -- that's why I persevered with it for 6 months -- but in the end it was a massive disappointment.
