2 out of 5 eggsFM low frequency missing. Ghost radio.

Pros: I bought it for free after rebate
picks up radio and weather broadcast

Cons: I bought it mainly to listen to NPR which is broadcast at low FM frrequencies, in my case 88.3Hz. The radio couldn't go that low. I compared it with the digital radio on my car. The lowest frequency it picks up is at 88.9Hz.

Sometimes the radio turns itself on, like in a horror movie. I'm sure there's nothing wrong with my apartment because no other electronics has been turning themselves on.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks like a charm

Pros: Use this to pick up local baseball games. So far works great and have had over a year. I received a refurbished one and nothing has gone wrong with it. Picks up signal pretty well too. Battery compartment is nice because I can take it when I go tent camping or plug it in if I have electric.

Cons: none as of now.

1 out of 5 eggsEMERSON Portable NOAA Weather Radio RP6251

Pros: None

Cons: Purchased a new one (not refurbished ) from another store.
It is just a piece junk !
That's it.
No more needs to be said.

Other Thoughts: Save your money.
Building a old timey crystal set would be better than this hunk of junk.

1 out of 5 eggsReminds me why I don't buy refurbished

Pros: None

Cons: I don't usually buy refurbished items, but the price was low enough to convince me that it might be worth it. I just wanted a simple radio to put in the garage. I figured I'd buy two since they were cheap, and if one didn't work, not a huge loss.

NEITHER radio worked. In fact, one was completely missing a knob (no, it wasn't in the bottom of the box.) When it was turned on, it blasted static at full volume regardless of the setting of the volume control nob, the AM/FM/Weather switch, or the tuning knob. The other one worked for about 2 minutes, then ceased to work entirely.

It's obvious that the quality control on the refurbishing process for these is either lacking, or non-existent. I have a feeling that they got them back from somewhere and put them in an OEM box without even testing them.

Other Thoughts: These were too cheap to make them worth sending back. The only plus was that I was able to pull an antenna off of one of them to put on one of the kids radios that had a broken antenna.

This was a relatively inexpensive reminder to me to avoid buying refurbished items. I've had more trouble with reburbs than the cost savings is worth.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks for my use, Not the greatest.

Pros: Has analog on/off switch and manual tuner.

Cons: Tuner is very touchy. Poor reception

Other Thoughts: I purchased at the "W" store for $20 new. They work okay. I use these during the holidays to broadcast music outside to my light display. They are on a timer that comes on and turns off, that was the reason I selected these radios. Some digital units will not turn on without manually switching the power button.

1 out of 5 eggs"Refurbished" turns out to be still broken

Pros: N/A - read "Cons" section to see why I cannot give any pros.

Cons: This used product didn't quite make it through the refurbishing process. Maybe it slipped through the cracks. Radio unable to find a single broadcasting station. All I hear is a steady static. The most annoying part is that once you flick the switch to "OFF", the sound of static gets much louder, which makes no sense. Nothing works.

Other Thoughts: I must admit that I hadn't tested this "refurbished" product right away. In fact, it sat on my desk for 4 months before I made the time to test it. But sitting on a desk unused for 4 months shouldn't render a product useless, refurbished or not.

1 out of 5 eggsSkip this one

Pros: Bought it to put in my office. Came on when plugged in. That's as nice as I can be!

Cons: Pitiful reception on FM- just a tiny touch on knob made huge changes. If you hit the WX button it blasts at max volume. Tuning indicator was useless. I went to the "W" store and bought a $9.95 clock radio which worked way better. If anyone wants the Emerson junk, I'll give you mine for cost of postage!

Other Thoughts: win some, lose some.... first time I've ever made a negative review on Newegg!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Refurb

Pros: Got it for free with a rebate. Shipping was free and Newegg fast. Great product as a rebate. No dents or dings and works like new. Good volume.

Cons: Doesn't pick AM up as well in my office and I'm pretty near a window. I don't want to say it's my building as I was able to pick up AM bands fairly well with my old radio. Picks up most FM stations just fine.

Other Thoughts: Decent radio to have at the office especially at the price.
