    Great for weather alerts

    When there is severe weather in the region, this NOAA radio sure gets the alerting job done, especially with its loud tone (we can hear this all throughout our house). Its many features, such as the digital screen, the lights for advisories, watches and warnings, not to mention the multiple channels and being able to set up counties myself, certainly make this radio all the more useful. With the fair share of severe weather we get in our area, it was well worth the money and I would recommend this product to anyone.

    We recently moved to FL from NY and our new neighbors suggested we invest in a weather alert radio. We are so happy that we took their advice. In just one month it has already given us two local tornado warnings and numerous severe thunderstorm alerts. We sleep soundly knowing that if severe weather comes during the night we will be awakened in time to take cover if necessary. Wouldn't be without this product!

    An absolute must for safety

    With weather forecasts as much guess work as anything it is important to ensure your safety and the safety of your family. When severe weather happens in the middle of the night you can be sure to be alerted when you need to seek safety or precautions. Wouldn't be without one in my home. An absolute must have.

    I love this product. Older versions required you to look up a NOAA locality code online and type it in on the unit's keyboard (a locality code provides weather alerts for a specific locality). This newer model has codes for all states built in, so you just look up your location on the unit, click it, and you are done...a vast set-up improvement.

    this weather radio is worth every penny I paid for it. after getting it home and setting it up, there was a severe weather bulletin for our area and a possible tornado in a county north of where we live. I even recommended one to my mother. if you value your family buy one of these. even if the power goes out. you have a battery backup.

    My second time owning a weather radio. This one is straight forward and does the job. I like knowing I will be alerted to severe weather even when I'm not paying attention. It's up to you, but I recommend turning off all alerts. You can't disable Tornado Warnings, the only one you really need to wake up in the middle of the night for.

    The weather radio has really come in handy. It has already warned me about severe weather. It was a replacement for one I have had for many years. I highly recommend it because it gives one a good advance warning of impending bad weather and allows one to make preparations for safety.

    Pulls in signals better than most weather radios (even other Midland models). The radio was even used on a road trip and alerted all of the severe weather in the area; this helped in choosing other routes to avoid mother nature's wrath.

    Possible Missing Features

    Easy to set up. Disappointed that there is no external speaker port. I use weather info for "music on hold" feature of phone system. Also, not sure how effective the battery back up is. Radio acted as if dead when unplugged w new batteries installed. If these features are not needed, it would be great.

    This is a very well made compact weather radio that also has AM/FM radio reception included. My cat has knocked it on the floor a time or two and not effected the quality of the sound or reception.

    This weather radio is easy to set up and does what it says-it's only notified me when there were floods and winds close to my area during Harvey. The downside is this product is not available in store, must be ordered online

    A good weather radio but not a radio radio.

    This is a nice looking and very dependable weather radio. I returned it because I didn't notice when I bought it that it lacked an FM radio asa well. I did order a midland radio with both weather and AM/FM radio.

    This new weather radio replaced the one up at High Cliff State Park in the Handicapped Cabin. It is programmed and works great no more squealing weather radio! Will keep everyone safe who uses the cabin.

    Happy with the weather alert radio, easy to set-up and program Appears to be reliable with notifications. This was a replacement for the one we bought 12 years ago - and the price hasn't changed.

    It worked great right out of thr box. I like the feature that allows you to choose between a blaring alarm or a video alert. My old one was very annoying when the alert went off.

    The best thing is that the alarm doesn't ring constantly!!! It rings, shuts off, and lights the "warning", etc. light. Then we listen for the message.

    Everyone in Nebraska MUST have a weather alert radio, not only for stormy Spring weather, but also for blizzard alerts during the Winter. This is a great radio!

    Could not program the radio as directed, nor would it receive signals from NOAA for any weather information. Returned it to the store.
