        Comments about Midland® All Weather/Hazards Alert Radio with AM/FM Tuning:

        Last just past warranty. Customer service offered to replace with a down graded unit at a higher cost to me than I could buy in a store.
        Customer service was non responsive.

        Would not buy another product from this manufacturer if they don't support what they sell.

              This unit worked fklawlessly for about one year.Then no radio receoptuion of any kind.The manual says $45.00 for out of warranty repair and $7.00 for S&H!I paid [$] for it last year. It's currently [$] at [@].I have seen lots of reviews saying this unit fails just after the 1 year mark is reached.I have a non-same - Radio Shacek unit that is 15 years old and still works as designed! So I will be using that until I find out if Mudland will give me a replacement at no charge.

                    I contacted Midland support after 12 months of good use to find out what was wrong with NOAA receiver portion of radio that suddenly stopped working, since AM/FM still worked. Tried a few things but was asked to return to Midland for replacement with my proof of purchase. Going to try Oregon Scientific now.

                      I've purchased several weather radios over the years, and this has met all my needs for the last 3 years. It has all the codes and controls you'll need. The best and unique thing about this radio though is its external alert jack, which for those of you like me into home automation means that the radio can allow you to turn on lights and other devices in severe weather.
