    Great radio!

    By CindyJ

    Comments about Sony ICF-S79W Radio Tuner:

    I ordered this radio to replace an oldie that finally quit! The features are terrific, especially the timer - will definitely save on batteries! Love having the station presets - now we can easily find all our favorites. Excellent reception on the bathroom windowsill - sound is amazing, too! I am so impressed, I'm ordering 2 more for my kids.

      Comments about Sony ICF-S79W Radio Tuner:

      I have had this radio going on SIX YEARS now. I was purchasing a speaker system and checked to see if Sony still offers it just to see. I bought it in my senior year of High School and was a little weary of spending $50 on a shower radio but I have clearly gotten my money's worth. I use it when in the shower, while cooking in the kitchen, have brought it to the beach a number of times, and everywhere in between. I would say I only have to change the batteries (3-C) every six months or so and I play it EVERY DAY. OTher than the seal on the top cracking bit by bit as the years go on, it still works, clear as a whistle...or a nice radio!


      great radio

      Good Radio, Disppointing design change

      By Anonymous

      from Philadelphia PA

      Comments about Sony ICF-S79W Radio Tuner:

      I purchased this to replace a previous model that was broken. I was disappointed to find that the unit no longer has the local TV band. This is a big disappointment in a otherwise great unit,


      Love this radio

      I have had this radio for many many years. My mom ended up stealing it from me. Now that I remember this radio I want on again. Glad they still made it.
