I bought this in November 2017 to (finally) replace my GE Superadio III that I've had for over 10 years... telescoping antenna accidentally broke. I live almost 50 miles from NYC, so to get NYC radio stations requires a very strong radio, and the GE worked great. Its drawback was the analog dial, which was inaccurate to say the least.
I compared various models from C.Crane and Sangean, and decided on the Sangean PR-D5. I don't need shortwave or weather bands, and I wanted a digital tuner, but I don't need anything else. This radio sits by my home office desk, and I listen to it while working. Worked great for 4 weeks, then stopped cold in the middle of the day. Granted, I hadn't paid much attention to the screen, so I probably missed the low-battery indicator. Was just a "PWR" on the screen and no buttons worked. The only way to reset this thing is to take the old batteries out, wait 3-5 full minutes until the PWR is gone from the screen, then put new batteries in. In contrast, the Superadio III would begin to fade when batteries were about to die, but it would respond instantly when new batteries were installed. During the 5 minutes without battery or AC, the Sangean does maintain your radio station settings, but apparently not the clock - not important to me, since I have clocks around me, but could be an issue for someone else.
The radio performs well, no station drift, and picks up AM and FM stations as well as the GE. But the battery swap procedure taking 3-5 minutes for no good reason cost this radio one star in my rating.
