$250 vs $100. I'd still take the Tecsun

All too often the brand names of the well engineered and solidly built electronics of the past have been sold to overseas companies that try to capitalize on them--by selling cheaply made stuff with that good brand name on it.  Zenith, Grundig, Sylvania, General Electric and others are some of the brands so cheapened.  Curtis Mathes is another--although some would argue that point.  None of the old, known brand names are worth much any more.

On late night TV you'll see all sorts of garbage bearing the Bell & Howell nameplate.

"Currently, third-party companies offer a number of consumer products licensed under the Bell & Howell name [that dates back to 1907 in Chicago] , including:

    35mm cameras
    Alarm systems
    Air purifiers
    Digital cameras
    Electric shavers
    Handheld LCD televisions
    Heat therapy devices
    Noise reduction headphones
    Personal sound amplifiers
    Portable radios
    Sunlight desk lamps
    Sunlight floor lamps
    Solar powered floodlights"
