The Sangean DT-400W is the last pocket radio you will ever need to buy. It has about everything you could want, and then some, in a small, pocket sized portable radio. As an example the new NOAA Weather Alert Emergency Channel sounds a very loud audible tone when an extreme weather condition is imminent and/or a police emergency or child abduction has occurred or any type of public awareness becomes critical. Even with your radio off or you are listening to another station the weather alert monitor continues to monitor the NOAA channels should an emergency arise.

To conserve battery life the DT- 400W provides an option to select the time you would like the NOAA alert to be active and a small LED alert flashes to remind you that the alert is on. In addition to emergencies the 7 NOAA channels provide up to date general weather information useful if you're planning a trip or just a picnic for the weekend. The large backlit LCD display clearly displays the time, station, battery life indication, alert indication and all other pertinent information.

Sensitivity and Selectivity is remarkable and comparable to many of the better standalone AM/FM Table top radios. Advanced PLL Synthesized Digital Receiver provides drift free AM/FM reception. Deep Bass Boost adds to your stereo musical listening pleasure and 19 random preset selections lets you mix AM/FM stations with immediate access through the "My Favorites" button. Other features include Lock Switch to prevent accidental set-up changes, optional 90 minute auto shutoff, built-in speaker, auto station seek and a removable belt clip.

  • newegg Digital AM / FM Tuner Combined Advanced PLL Synthesized Digital Receiver and Dynamic Bass Boost System (DBBS), the sensitive digital AM/FM tuner provides drift free AM/FM reception and delivers clear, detailed and vibrant sound whether you are in office or on the go.

4 out of 5 eggsHandy Radio

Pros: Easy to work with, with a good built in speaker. Loud alert. It is still running on the batteries it came with. Works like it should. First alert ever came while listening to music, with a press of a button was able to switch to the alert and back to music.

Cons: Weather Alert function is timer based. The max you can set the alert timer to is 16 hours which is good if you know there are or going to be storms in the area. needs either the antenna or headphones plugged in to get best signal, which they give you.

Other Thoughts: This little radio has kept me safe during tornado season. I was out camping with it on. When a few tornadic storms flared up I was one of a few that could keep track of them. Most of the others had cell phones with patchy coverage and couldn't pull up weather radars or get alerts the same alerts. I just wish there was a way to keep the alert function on all the time but knew about the timer function when i bought it.

3 out of 5 eggsNot an improvement

Pros: Good sensitivity, selectivity on AM

Cons: Poorer sound quality than previous similar models. You'll also need to buy yourself a decent set of comfortable/good sounding earbuds.

Other Thoughts: I have owned several similar models of this radio - the Sangean DT-200V, the DT-200VX, and now this one. They were all very similar but this is definitely not up to par as far as sound quality. My DT-200VX (now discontinued) had beautiful audio. The current DT-400W sounds flat compared to it. Newer is not always better.

5 out of 5 eggsSangaen quality

Pros: Excellent build quality and reception, when used with supplied wire or headphones for FM. Can program any mix of up to 19 favorite AM or FM stations, and step through them in your chosen sequence. One touch weather button jumps to local NOAA broadcasts, touch again to return to previous setting. Belt clip seems sturdy for the type, time will tell.

Cons: Earbuds supplied not up to the quality standard of the radio, and a right angle plug is preferable to the straight line plug provided. A bit tricky to program the favorites, but instructions are clear as is the display. Can not leave in NOAA Alert mode indefinitely, as it draws the battery down. Manual warns that clock and favorite settings will be lost if the battery is removed and not replaced within a minute.

Other Thoughts: Should stand up to a couple years of daily use, and go through several sets of earbuds. Analog thumb-wheel volume control will probably be the first point of failure.

A couple operational notes:
Mode button cycles FM - AM - Favorites.
Auto shut-off in 90 minutes, can override by holding power button for a second when turning on.

2 out of 5 eggs90 Day Warranty

Pros: Looks like the people who have bought it think it works good.

Cons: The Warranty: After not finding it, I contacted Sangean Support. I was surprised to find out it was only 90 days, especially with its high price. I am suspicious of the quality of any electronic product that can't offer at least a one year warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Radio!

Pros: I've had this radio for almost 5 years and use it almost daily and all I can say is well made, Weather stations come in pretty good for a low price radio. Reception on AM/FM is good. Even the the two AA batteries last quite a long time. I've dropped it a number of times and it hasn't broken yet.

Cons: No cons, just wish it had a spot for an external antenna. Sometime in the Catskill Mountians I have had some areas with less than perfect reception but for the price very acceptable.

Other Thoughts: Make a big brother of it for a desk top.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's a radio.

Pros: It's small, pretty easy to use, and does what it's supposed to do.

Cons: It's just expensive for what is just a small, plastic transistor radio. It has a few bells and whistles beyond the drug store variety, but for ten bucks you can get about 85% of the functionality.

Other Thoughts: Had some great luck with Sangean in the past, a really great stereo portable radio that works like a champ. But this is just too much money for what you get.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Reception

Pros: No problem getting it working without reading the manual. Reception in my area for AM radio with computers in my home is awful, this unit gets the stations and with minimal rotation reduces staic and noise. FM is weak - until you plug in the included antenna. Didn't try headphones yet, but it works well on the builtin speaker.

Cons: It is just a radio - as big as my cell phone but no camera or keyboard or display.

Other Thoughts: I got it half price on NewEgg special - still not a cheap radio you get what you pay for - it is a good radio. I got the memory to record my station presets and like how it works.

5 out of 5 eggsHigh Quality Pocket Radio

Pros: I have gone through a half dozen similar radios. I live in an area surrounded by mountains which translates into not very good FM reception. This radio comes with a plug-in wire antenna which does the job very well.

Cons: The speaker is OK, but, it needs to be improved. My dilemma was choosing a radio with a bigger speaker - - or - - this with superior reception. i choose reception.
