Poor Quality Control

By Cape George

About Me Gearhead, Practical

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Accurate Sw Tuning
  • Good Sound Quality

Cons

  • Fm Overloads Too Easily
  • Poor Am Sensitivity

Best Uses

  • Home Use

Comments about Eton Grundig Mini 400 AM/FM Shortwave Radio (Black):

Good sound for such a tiny radio, and the shortwave calibration was amazingly accurate, unfortunately I had to return it. The reason is I knew I would mostly use it for standard broadcast AM and FM. But, the AM sensitivity was very poor, my Kaito KA200 mini radio outperformed it, and on FM a couple local stations completely blanketed the dial, you could always hear them in the background on other stations.

Excellent Design but Poor QC

Comments about Eton Grundig Mini 400 AM/FM Shortwave Radio (Black):

As someone who likes classical music, talk radio, and knowing the offshore news perspective, I was attracted to the Mini 400. It fit nicely in my shirt pocket, contoured nicely to my ear as I slept, and did not exhaust a pair of AAA bateries over almost 2 months of use. Reception was superb to a point (see below) but I gave up after having to return two units. The first unit had a bad on-off switch; the second one had a frequency drift of +/- 10 KC on the AM band, a problem which made listening even to the station located only a mile from my house difficult. I was surprised at the poor quality control evident in the Mini 400, as both Eton and Grundig have good reputations.

Worked well--for three uses.

        Comments about Eton Grundig Mini 400 AM/FM Shortwave Radio (Black):

        This unit worked for exactly three uses. This is the second portable short wave radio that I've bought in the past three years. The first one broke immediately as well. I'm beginning to think that there is no such thing as a decent portable s/w radio.

          Comments about Eton Grundig Mini 400 AM/FM Shortwave Radio (Black):

          reception is super on both am and fm. pulled in 4 sw stations inside with just the built in antenna. for those not hip to shortwave, get an alligator clip and run a 20 foot piece of wire for an external shortwave antenna, I did, and im pulling over 20 stations now including india.

          the mini 400 is better than my older 300, , this was a great buy at 20 bucks.

          Comments about Eton Grundig Mini 400 AM/FM Shortwave Radio (Black):

          This radio is ok...for the price. When I bought the Mini 400 I was expecting a nice long antenna and great SW reception...WRONG! The antenna is shorter than any other antenna from the other radios I've owned. Because of the antenna being short I've had trouble day and night even OUTDOORS picking up SW broadcasts as well as FM broadcasts. Another thing that bothers me is that the radio tunes itself, and it does that a lot in the MW(AM) band also in SW. However in FM the radio tunes itself only when the reception from a station is lost almost completely. But there are some good sides to this radio like the fact that it's the size of an average smartphone, battery life is pretty long, AM reception is very good, and it has a digital tuner. Now that I have experienced all the bad stuff on this radio I barley use it and I will return it.

          Comments about Eton Grundig Mini 400 AM/FM Shortwave Radio (Black):

          This is an excellent product. Very well made with excellent reception. I am really surprised by the other postings. It has a VFO for all bands unlike other radios. So you can tune between the frequencies. It also gives overlapped band edges on both FM, and AM. Also not described is a hidden band on the radio? That is correct you heard me. Put the switch between AM,FM and you get the low portion of the LW band, and you will get stations there. Nice grundig, you did a good job on this one.

            This radio works for me. It is not a good travel radio, but to keep in a shirt pocket at work and enjoy NPR, it's perfect. In the middle of the night when you want to find some interesting content on AM and SW, it's perfect. Stereo FM reception (when connected to headphones or external speakers) is much better than comparable pocket radios at half this price - I've enjoyed sampling top 40 radio for the first time in several years. The aesthetics make this worth the price for me - its size, weight, shape and digital display make it a very attractive device.

              AM is reception is very poor and won't pick up some nearby stations at all here in a large major Great Lakes city. SW is funny, 1 station from China and 1 preacher down south. The channel dial changes stations on it's own. Total Junk!. Doesn't anybody at Radio Shack get this stuff out?..

                I love this inexpensive little radio. It has served me very well and allows me to listen to AM / SW and FM stations. The telescopic antenna isn't enough to listen to SW stations around the world but a simple 10 or 20 foot wire clipped onto the antenna will get you all you need.
